pours golden with a nice white head. Aroma is citrus and floral hops. Flavors is about the same. Hints of grapefruit as well. Has a nice crisp, but bitter finish. One of my top APAs.

If this is not my favorite APA, its in the top 3 to be certain. It is a great easy drinking citric pale ale. Very crisp, clean, and refreshing.

Chicago the new kings of the pale ale. This trip I have had 3 amazing pale ales. This one is wonderfully hoppy with notes of pineapple, grass, floral notes and slightly dank flavors. Crisp dry finish with an amazing hop profile.

Was sitting at Vine and Barley and someone happen to pour me a sample, what a nice guy. Aroma was surprisingly very hoppy and earthy. Good head retention and the flavor profile was very well balanced. Would try again for sure.

16 ounce can
Another canned gem Half Acre is now two for two in beers that get their message across without being over the top. I’m looking forward to the next can waiting at home and may have to get more on the way back to Ohio.
Aroma and appearance - The amber orange body was carbonated with a resilient white head like tufts of dandelions. Lemons, citrus, and warm hops invite additional attention. Sharp, crisp, and bright this is assertive enough to be memorable but not so much it fatigues the senses.
Flavor and palate - The sharp bitter impression starts from the first sip and only increases over time. Tickling the back of the throat with a dry feeling like the start of a sore throat the sweetness pervades every corner of the palate. The mouthfeel is like the filling inside a creampuff then encased in pine nuts. A great example of the Midwestern approach to the IPA it is neither overly hopped nor plain and dull.

Thanks to ddale for this. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big frothy white head and great lacing. Aroma is super floral and hoppy. Taste is surprisingly a little subdued in the hop character. I was expecting more. But it still delivers with a great floral hop mouthfeel and dry bitterness aftertaste. Nice beer, maybe my expectations were a little high for this.
