COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A nod to the hop cone & the bearded brethren, we loaded this beer with our favorites and reinforced it with a solid malt base and carmel twist.

A specialty brew. Grab it when you see it. 7% ABV.

On tap poured into a 5oz English tulip. The initial aroma is a roasted grain, kinda rye-like with a dry citrus peel and some toffee. The off-white head leaves a light retention as a ring around the edge of the glass and a light island of head in the middle. This sits atop a clear red-brown beer. An above average amount of layer-like lace is left down the glass. The taste is a nicely balanced medium malty sweetness and medium grainy bitterness. The medium body has lots of soft carbonation and goes down with a creamy texture. The finish is a bit of rye and a berry sweetness, and leaves behind a grainy aftertaste.

Another super hoppy re ale from half acre. Pours a deep red in color. Smells hoppy and has a bitter hoppy finish. Had at tap room. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

9/03/2013: Half Acre Ginger Twin India Red Ale... Aroma: Sugary caramel malts. Appearance: Deep amber color; lofty light beige head. Flavor: Malty with caramel overtones; good hops - earthy, herbal; moderate bitterness. Palate: Medium-bodied; chewy texture. Overall: Very drinkable and quite good; although I enjoy the malty characteristic of a PacNW Style Red IPA, this one seems to be a touch too malty and as a result the hops get a bit lost. However, itís still quite good. 22 fl. oz. bottle shared by dirhauge. Thanks Paul! Rating #70 for this beer.

Bottle, 6.5%. Has that typical HA yest scent right off the bat, you can smell it in mostof thier beers. IT also has a bright and fresh hoppiness. It smells like a Half Acre beer through and through, slight bit of specialty malt. Flavor is a mix of specialty malt and hops, like an east coast ipa, but with an ample bitterness and slightly dank hops.

adnielsen (9090) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade. Pours a hazy reddish brown appearance with a creamy brown head. Quite spicy, piney, herbal hoppy, toasty malty, caramel aroma. Light toffee, sweet, a bit burnt, caramel, fairly rich malty, spicy, herbal, resiny hoppy flavor. I probably should have drank this a bit more fresh but tasty nonetheless.

Poured from a bottle bought at the brewery into a pint glass. Nice amber colour with cream head Smell is sweet & malty with grassy hops. Heavenly. Think I am going to like this...Dang! Wanted this to taste better. Too dry & thin. But understandably this a style many others enjoy. Good flavor but so many other better brews to have from Half Acre.
