Smooth like a coastline’s fine sand during a falling tide. As aromatic as a dew laden prairie on misty June morning. Plus the label features hipster donkeys exploring outer space.

Bottle thanks to Bruce. Pours a cloudy orange with frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong grapefruit, pine, resin, and hemp. Medium mouthfeel with nice fruity hop, pinec grapefruit, and resin with nice bitterness. Very impressive.

Great dipa citrus bomb. Hazy orange. Mango, grapefruit, and lemon in nose. Strong tasting tropicals in taste, but some danker hops in there. Balanced bittersweet finish. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy coppery hue with good lace. Resiny, dank, juicy, and leafy notes harken back to those 1st Cali DIPA’s were hops were the showcase but the beers were still somewhat balanced. Sharp aggressive mouth feel. I liked this very much but HA double pale ale Navaja is even better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at Hackney’s Printers Row, 6/3/14
Aroma: Grapefruit, pine, some boozy notes, and bready malts on the nose
Appearance: Clear orange color, with a white head, and some spotty lace
Flavor: Has a fairly hoppy flavor, with some grapefruit and bread
Palate: This one has a medium body, aclean mouth feel, and some mild heat to it
I found this one pretty darn enjoyable overall. I liked the way the big hop flavor worked. Maybe it isn’t a perfect beer, and there’s flaws here and there (mostly in the flavor), but it works pretty nicely, and overall, I liked it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours unclear orange amber with a nice Lacey sandy head. Aroma brings sweet oranges. Flavor is bitter sweet oranges with some spice which I like, but the body is pretty big and syrupy this cold on tap.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to csteele2144. Pours hazy orange with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is passion fruit, grapefruit, pine, mango. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, juicy and tropical with just a bit o’pine. Medium body, not harsh at all. Some lingering bitterness. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of "hannont". Colour...golden-amber with a thin head. Nose...cut juniper hedge and pekoe tea with hop resin. Palate...dry, lightly musty and slightly husky, with lemon cake and citron frosting. The back of the palate is bittersweet and still dry with pineapple husk and birch bark. Nice!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jason! Swampy, muddled, burnt yellow body with an off-white, almost beige colored soapy foam on top. Very nice aroma of juicy mango, orange, & pineapple with an abundance of wet & weedy hops. Finishes with some light resin & candied tangerine peel. Dry cracker foundation with an overture of zesty hop juice, pine, mild resin, bitter orange zest, grapefruit rind, & an interesting combo of white pepper spiciness & faint sugar cookie sweetness. Sweetness dies out & it finishes quite bitter, but still retains great drinkability. Oily, bitter, citric finish. Very tasty stuff... Might have enjoyed it even more if it wasn’t tried side by side to so many other great DIPAs that day, but this is a very good brew nonetheless.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Copper/orange color with nice fluffy white head that lingers for a bit. Slight haze. S: Very fruity upfront with some pine. Candied tangerine, pineapple, mango, maybe a little bubblegum. Really nice aroma. T: Again fruity upfront with some of that expected breadiness from Half Acre. Get notes of mango pineapple, and sweet tangerine. Slight alcoholic taste. M: Crisp, dry, and not sweet. Just the way I like it. Medium body. O: I love this beer, really like it more than the regular Double Daisy.
