(growler sent for RBWG by jcnd9803). Pours a hazy copper color with off-white head. Plenty of citrus here to go with a nice malt backbone. Pretty tasty beer and a pleasure to share this at a great event.

enjoyed during 2011 RBWG pours dirty blond with a medium off white head. Aroma is big citrus hops and grassy malts. Flavor is the same the hops in this are very nice, not your average pale ale, bordering on IPA.

Growler pour. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. Floral earthy and grapefruit aroma - stronger on the floral/earthy notes than anything else. Crisp hops minty and dry. Bitter crisp and really nice. Those citra hops are awesome.

Golden orange with a white head. Aroma was citrus and tropical fruits, light sweetness, floral notes. Medium thin body. Flavor was heavy on the hops with light malt backbone. Tropical and citrus fruit tones, floral, sweet candied malts. Love how much flavor is packed into the low abv. Delicious.

Draft at Prohibition. Pours a cloudy orangish amber with thin off-white head. Notes of onion, citrus, burnt caramel, grapefruit and lemon. Pretty light body but a tasty sessionable beer.

Purchased from Half Acre in growler form, enjoyed on New Years Eve at home. Appearance is a cloudy gold, slightly dark, with a rich white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is huge on the citrus hops, slight spice as well, can’t say there’s much other than hops in the aroma, but it smells pretty good! Definitely dry hopped. Taste is fantastic, goes down nice and smooth with a slight crispness mixed with the bitterness of the hops, slight sweet from citrus. This stuff is great, actually like it more than Daisy Cutter.

Growler from Half Acre drank on 2/19/11. Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Sweet malty flavor up front with a nice, bitter hop finish. I know it is listed as a pale ale, but seemed more like an IPA to me.

growler card #2, punch #5 (and 6). aroma is giant tropical fruit, even more outright then daisy cutter, at times moves into gatorade or chewing gum territory it is so overwhelming, even a couple feet from your nose. lucky to have such a fresh specimen. appearance is near straw pour with big carb, lasting head. flavor is more controlled hops tempered with occasional bready malts. excellent brew but so similar to regular daisy cutter i wonder how many people could differentiate blindly. a bit of a disappointment to have a release of a second pale ale that is super similar to the former (and its parent) and also that both are well out of balance to be considered a decent APA anyways. that being said i have and will continue to drink them by the bucket.
