All I have to say about this beer is that it tastes exactly like Daisy Cutter, just really juiced up. No joke, I drank a fresh can of Daisy Cutter next to my glass of Daisy Cutter and the character was identical, just with different levels of potency.

Originally reviewed: 6/24/10. Poured into a goblet. Pours a very murky, cloudy dark gold. Sits pretty dense in the glass. A small finger-width off-white head rests on top. Lots of sticky lace clings to the glass. The nose on this beer is superb! This is eye-crossingly wonderful. Tons of citrus notes waft out: grapefruit, passion fruit, lemon zest, oranges, etc. This really smells amazing. I wish I could scent my car with this. The mouth is firm. Slight oily feel. Sits heavier than many of the style. Carbonation level is spot-on. As this beer warms a bit, a smooth creamy characteristic takes over. Great citrusy hops in the flavor. Light spiciness, but nothing overbearing. Adds a nice touch. The bitterness is much more pronounced right away, but as it warms a smooth honey-sweetness pops up. Excellent balance. I enjoyed this entire bomber for myself. I want more! Great beer. Thanks again, Ed.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 poured from bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear and medium orange color with a nice head. Very good depth with lots of aromas of fresh hops, citrus, florals and some navel oranges. Full bodied with a real nice and smooth feel. Good balance, but lacking a slight bit of depth and flavors of pine resin, navel oranges and fresh hops. a quality DIPA. Has a nice freshness to it, but it is lacking just a slight bit on the feel.

22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of pineapple, piney and resinous hops, and some dry earthy notes. Flavour is very earthy and dirty upfront, with dry piney hops, backed by sufficient caramel malt, finishing with loads of earthy dry hops. Love the dryness of the hops without it being too astringent or unbalanced. Delicious.

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours lightly rosy amber with a thin bubbly off-white head. Smell is big pungent pine and citrus hops, grapefruit and a touch of sweet malt. Very nice. Taste isn’t as good--resiny hops that leave a bit of onion/garlic note on the finish, along with some rubbing alcohol. A decent amount of malt balances it out a bit, but it’s still hop-forward. Too sharp and angular for my tastes, even though the smell is really nice.

Purchased at Half Acre in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at home while doing some work while watching the White Sox home opener. Appearance is a bright cloudy gold with a rich frothy white head. Aroma is very bright with citrus notes, very similar to Daisy Cutter but maybe a bit more of a malt presence. Taste is fantastic, they managed to turn up the volume on the hops (DC was already hoppy) while adding a slight malt characteristic that sets this apart from standard DC. Fantastic DIPA, great stuff, possibly my fav Half Acre release yet.

A great double IPA. Pours from a bottle golden orange with a white head. The alcohol hits ya. Definitely a refreshing beer after a long day. Could have multiple easily. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Dan for sharing this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours an orange-amber with a nice white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries a good mixture of citrus hops along with some tropical and light pine notes in the background. Flavor has a touch of bready malt combined with nice hop flavor and bitterness. Medium body and a nice dry finish with a long bitter kick afterward. Pretty impressive.
