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.

Bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. Dank grapefruit and citrusy hop aromas. Not very well balanced with all kinds of bland hop notes.

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.

Thanks to Matt for this. Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a thin white top and good lacing. Aroma is thick grapefruit hops and grains. Taste is a blast of grapefruit and citrus hops.

Pours orange with a thin white head. Flavor is hoppy, with that signature half acre flavor. Nice malt backbone. Had a draft pours at half acre. One of their best pales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Murky orange gold pour with solid white foam that left nice thick splashes of lace. Maltier than expected but still well hopped. Notes of fresh clementine, pineapple, mango, shortbread, lemongrass, thyme, ginger, green peppercorns and fresh pinecones. Juicy and oddly creamy body. Smooth finish with a moderately bitter numbing aftertaste. Well crafted.

wedgie9 (2639) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Tasted on 12/4/11 from a 22oz bomber bottle purchased at Half Acre. Pours a hazy but bright colored orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to uneven lace. The nose is fresh grapefruit, orange peel, and light cereal malt, with just a hint of earthy yeast. The flavor is full of fresh grapefruit and orange peel with a touch of tropical fruit, light cereal malt, and nice bitterness. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long bitter grapefruit and orange peel finish.

Bomber. Pours a murky orange yellow with a small minimal head. Aroma is super orangy, very nice amarillo? cut grass, light sweet note, maybe citric tangerine. Very sessionable! A little more approachable then daisy cutter but just as flavorful, medium punch of bitterness at the tail end that lingers, some orange up front, very nice and super drinkable. Thin body with light carbonation.

Tap. Pours mostly clear gold, white head. Some retention/good lace. Aroma is grassy/tropical/citrus hop, dough, earth. Taste is bitter, tropical/grassy, light malt sweetness. Palate is lightly oily, creamy, bitter finish. Really nice.

Purchased at Half Acre Brewery in Chicago, IL; enjoyed with a good friend while watching game 7 of the World Series. Appearance pale yellow, slightly cloudy, thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, touch of citrus, smells light. Taste is crisp and light, definite grapefruit, light hops, crisp, slightly refreshing. This is a session ale, but at $8 a bomber it’s a bit steep.
