Aroma:Sweet cotton candy and grapefruit with sugar on top. Appearance:Gold in color, lots of white head, and pretty bubbles. Taste:Hugely hoppy! Freshly cut grass, grapefruit, citrus, lemon. There is a lot of sweetness in this beer. These flavors stick around through the midtaste, but all that remains on the aftertaste is harsh bitterness. Palate:Light to medium body, good carbonation, and a little hop astringency. Overall:This is an amazingly delicious DIPA. The huge grapefruit hops in this beer really shine.

Draft. Pours turbid orangy with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is huge tangerine, black pepper, pineapple, hops. Tastes rich, smooth, with a huge bready malt flavor taking center stage to the huge tropical fruit, citrus, fresh ground black pepper, and resiny piney hops. Wonderful.

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.

Poured from a bomber into my 3 Floyds pub pint glass. The one is a stunning cloudy honey color with some huge fluffy white head that dissipates over time but leave a TON of thick lacing up the side of the glass. The aroma is is excellent with some piney & grassy hoppiness dominating. Flavors are quite similar but with an initial burst of citrusy sweetness giving way to a nice strong (but not overwhelming) bitterness in the finish. Carbonation is spot on and it feels very nice on the palate. I’m really enjoying this beer and will definitely be drinking this one again.

Serving type - bottle, poured into tulip glass Aroma - citrus, lemon, grapefruit Appearance - hazy orange, peach head This is a very drinkable beer. I think it hides the booze very well. It has somewhat of a tropical feel to it, with a little bit of pine. A nice example of a DIPA

Excellent, almost a double IPA taste. Very refreshing strong aroma of grape fruit. I wish we could get this in the Chicago suburbs.

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

fresh ass bottle courtesy of sidetracked, thanks for getting this to me so quickly! pour is a very foggy and hazy dark orange with a yellow head that has great lacing and retention . the aroma has a nice lot of musty, soapy, cheesy hops, as well as a blast of almost artificial citrus it is so sweet. the taste is nice and refreshing, bitter, as well as a nice sweet balance, extremely well balanced imo. it just disappears in your mouth, you want more before you are even donwe with the current sip. has a nice lightness to it, not a heavy oily finish like a lot of iipa’s. great stuff.

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: FEB 18, 2013 Just like the original but jucier, tastier, and fresher. Delicious hops, and vanilla tasting malts. Very good beer, please try dis man. Tried again at Khyber in Feb ’13, lots of tangerine flavored hops, orange pine and a big dry bite in the finish. Very dank.
