COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the first time we’ve brought this out of its scabbard. We’ve never released a Double IPA - and this will make its debut at our 5th Anniversary Party on 5/17. Attacking your ability to make good choices, this bully quickly becomes your best friend.

Navaja is a Double IPA that changes each time we brew it, unless we don’t change it. This go-round is a little more aggressive. Heavy on Citra, Mosaic, and Columbus hops and Golden Promise malt; Navaja is a shredder rotating on all cylinders.

tectactoe (2201) - Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Tap @ Half Acre: Super cloudy amber & dusty orange in color with an eggshell shaded, off-white creamy foam that leaves decent, sheety lacing along the glass. Explosive aroma of juicy ass hoppage; passion fruit, tangerine, floral perfume, spicy grapefruit rind, resinous hop leaves, a bit of freshly cut grass... Very nice & in-your-face, yet inviting all at once. Perfume, florals, & a mild botanical notes strike the palate first with a little herbal, grassy sting. It’s not long before the more fruity essence of the hops start to shine. Sweet mango & passion fruit, very much tropical, yet there’s still a mild citrus quality underneath that has a more bitter, rind-like & peel-y taste in the latter half of each sip. Notable sugar cookie-esque, crystal malt sweetness adds a nice juiciness to the hops with a toasty finish of perfume, citrus rind, & hop water. Lightly dank aftertaste, slightly sweet & lingering full of hops. This is another absolutely delicious hoppy brew from Half Acre.

RussianDragon (506) - - AUG 17, 2014
Draft at Tap Room, Half Acre in Chicago. Pours a clear bright golden color with minimal head that fades to spotty lacing. Aroma is intense hop bitterness with tropical fruit and booze. Flavor is big and bitter - hop bitterness, fruity sweetness, caramel malts, and bold booze throughout. More sweet fruit than bitterness overall. Medium bodied, solid, probably best in small quantities.

kaser (3018) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Fantastic. I've had this at their tap room before. Just had latest release from draft at sheffields and LOvE it. Cloudy thick orange pour. Tons of white fluffy and sticky head. Massive ripe peach aroma. Can taste the booze a little but well hidden for the ABV. Tropical fruits, citrus, grapefruit, hoppy. Basically everything I love in a beer
