4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Both from fresh growler and bomber bottle, this beer pours amber and clear and has bright citrus notes with a sprucey hop scent. More mellow and flat than its single-daisy brother, it is refreshing and complex.

Bottle shared by Koopa at beerloco’s. Pours clear amber. Strong hoppy nose with lots of pineapple, citrus, pine and caramel malts. Satisfying mouth feel. Lots of pineapple, piney hops, citrus and a well crafted caramel malt body.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is a orange in color with some golden hues and a big white head, too.
S: A huge citrus aroma with lots of resinous pine. There’s a fair amount of bread forward malts, but the hops really dominate. The tangerine and grapefruit are really fresh smelling.
T: Although the nose seemed very balanced, the flavor was very much about the hops. Lots of grapefruit, lemon rind, pine, and maybe just a bit of grass. Some bready malts are present too, though.
M: The body is medium with a mild to moderate carbonation. Seems to have lost a bit of the bubbles from the trip in the growler.
D: I really like Daisy Cutter a lot so I have been wanting to try this and it did not disappoint. A fantastic beer from Half Acre.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(22oz botle from jc). Pours slightly hazy copper wih 2 finger off-white head. Very active carbonation. Aroma has some must, juicy grapefruit, some pine/wood. Excellent! Taste is sweet malts with some wood notes and bitterness on the end. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation on the tongue. Finish is bitter, but the malt balances this beer out. Really good beer and drinks easily.

Bottle. Pours amber with a think white head. Aroma of floral, pine, and citrus hops. Nice balance and sweetness against the hops. ABV well hidden. Slight oil/stickyness. Good brew though. I liked it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz. bottle. Pours a nice clear, amber/orange color with an inch worth of white, thick, foamy head. Appears very lively with all of the tiny bubbles. Aroma is very much floral and piney hops with a nice sweetness to it. Taste is really good. A nice balance of grassy, earthy hops with a very good bitter bite at the end. Pretty sticky feel to it. Not overbearing, but a definite stickiness. Overall pretty good, I could drink this on the regular.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellent, almost a double IPA taste. Very refreshing strong aroma of grape fruit. I wish we could get this in the Chicago suburbs.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a hazy stray golden with a frothy white head. Killer of fresh grassy citric hops.Something sunny about the aroma that I love. Full and fruity with a rich body to balance the bitter dry hoppy finish. Hops are super balanced, it makes this dangerously drinkable. Mouthfeel is both wickedly full and delightful spicy. I like daisy cutter, but I like this more.
