Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a big, soapy white head. Plenty of citrus and floral hop notes with only a subtle bread/malt aroma. Pretty simple aroma, but quite nice. The flavor has lots of citrus flavor and a bit of floral character with a soft but sufficient bitterness. A light malt sweetness in the background. Light bodied with medium carbonation.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy orange color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Draft sample. Pours a cloudy, deep, orange-hued gold with a small eggshell white head. Aroma starts with a ton of tropical and citrus fruits- melon, peach, mango, orange- then some clearer citrusy and herbal hops. Flavor of citrusy hops, crackers, pale malts, and other dry grains. Light-bodied, with medium crisp carbonation and a really dry mouthfeel, especially late and in the finish. Really nice APA but it’d be better if the flavor could maintain the initial rich, juicy promise of the aroma.

Growler shared by Drew. Thanks! Pours a well hazed near murky dulled golden amber hue. A frothy loose brighter white head, dies to a film and laces ok. Aromas are lemons and grapefruit, florals and grass, a vibrant fruity nose with some pale malts, oranges, and nice florals. Initial is light bodied, a bit clean, with lemons and grass, bready malts, gets a touch watery. Middle throws some oranges, light malt body, touches of dry florals and lemon, light citrusy hops mesh into oranges. Finish is light dryness, faint crisp cereal and bready malts. Ok. Quite drinkable, but definitely lacks complexity, becoming a one trick pony of sorts. But, I’d say this might be better overall than the other.. Less flavorful, but enjoyable and a true sessioner. A bit bland, I’d prefer Daisy Cutter to this almost every time. Seems a strange offering..

22 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is grassy, juicy citrus with oranges and clementines, and doughy bread. The flavor has more juicy citrus with the focus being oranges and clementines, grassy, and biscuity malts. Easy to drink and would serve as a tasty alternative on a summer day.

Beerman6686 (4200) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2011
This poured a dark yellow to orange color with an off white head. Aroma was lots and lots of citrus and piney notes, not really much else. Flavor was just straight fruity hops, hardly any maltyness at all, but not very bitter either. A perfect example of hop flavor vs. hop bitterness.

Growler, pours a hazed golden with white head. Nose has grassy, deeper juicy citrusy clementines are there but slightly faint. Flavors have a pleasant juicy melon, citrusy, grassy, doughy biscuity malt. Easy drinking and refreshing but a lot like daisy cutter.

bottle... dark hazy gold, a bit or orange, not much of a head, watery light tin and thin... really enjoyable aroma, tons of fresh hops, a touch dank, a bit of cascade, not much malt, more of hop bomb... tastes a touch to grassy, could use balance but pretty good, and happily HF finally put out a good beer in the last year

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bomber from Half Acre. A deep hazed gold with some orange at the middle. Nose reminds me a lot of alpha king with faint crystal and cascade notes at the front. Nicely hopped and fresh.on tasting, crisp bitterness and a sturdy maln background, again bringing alpha king to mind. Nice and crisp and refreshing. Really nice beer.

Growler thanks to Andrew for bringing this by... Pours a murky, non-transparent, orange brown hue and topped with an initially fluffy white head that quickly dissipates to a thin film... Tropical fruitiness upfront, tangerines and mango which adds a sense of sweetness. Nice juicy aroma... Flavors are somewhat disimilar being not as robust and assertive as the aroma. Still somewhat flavor filled with citrus and pine with a pale earthy crackery malt backside. Just a touch lighter than medium bodied. Nicely done with similarites to daisy cutter although the aroma did not suggest that at first.
