4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
$3 taster at Half Acre’s tap room. Dark brown color, a bit hazy, with a thin head. Big buttload of what I thought were Amarillo hops, more fool me. Piney in the main, but allowing some tropical fruit to to appear too. In fact, with the malt added in, the big hop comes in almost like a fruity candy. Yes, very sweet, and too rich.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint pour at Half Acre. Clear, red-oak amber with small off-white head and excellent lacing. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit, pine, caramel and citrus. Taste of grapefruit, orange, tangerine, pine, tropical fruit and light sweet malt. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. A delicious hoppy IPA with just enough malt flavor for balance and an intensity that rivals most double IPAs.

Draft at the Half Acre tap room. Pours a dark amber color with a light tan head. Aroma is huge hops, loads of grapefruit, some pine. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, onion, garlic, some bready sweetness, with a big, bitter hop finish. Very tasty. Single hop mosaic. Very interesting. Would love to see this again.
