3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Half Acre Tap Room. Pours a hazy dark amber/orange with a lasting white head that fades to spotty lacing. Aroma is hop bitterness with tropical fruit with pineapple, resinous pine and hops. Flavor is bitter and delicious IPA: grass, pine and floral hops with malt balance. Medium bodied, active carbonation, and bitter finish.

[Tap] Bright orange colored pour with a dense cap of head on top. Heavy bitter aroma highlights tropical fruit, mango and pineapple. Taste is more mellow than the aroma, but it still packs a decent hop punch. Resinous hop taste, citrus, sweet caramel and pine cone round out the flavor. Sticky mouthfeel. A nice IPA!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid orange pour with little head. Very hoppy citrus and very salty aroma, slightly bitter in the nose. Straight forward hoppiness - strong pine and citrus, grapefruit lots of nutty half acre flavor. Alright but nothing unique to write home about.

Draft at Taste the Rarity
A standout of the midwest tent for me.....hoping this is it as the placard said "Spaceman"....from the descriptions this seems like it.
Pours orange with a nice white head. Aroma of tropical fruit hops. Flavor is resinous hoppy, great mouthfeel from low carbonation, very good IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Tap @ Half Acre: Deep, rich, burnt copper with 99% opacity. Almost brown. Dark for an IPA, methinks. Soapy, gray-tinted collar & foam. Aroma with a huge pungency of grapefruity & citric hops, juicy as hell with some grassy tones in the back adding a touch of bitterness. Lots of sweet, toasted, & lightly caramelized malt, too. Taste is full of grass & "wet" hops with an apparent dankness all around. Bitter fruit. Grapefruit pith, orange rind, outlined with pine needles, all soaking in a bath of moderately sweet caramel drizzle. Candied citrus finish, backed up with some fading, peppery pines. I normally do not care for sweeter or more caramel malt-heavy IPAs but this one was done exceptionally well. The malt was effective but not overpowering, & at the end of the day, it still tasted like an IPA. Yum!

Tap. Pours hazy amber with an average, lacing off-white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, pine and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, oily textuere and soft carb. A very nice IPA.
