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.

on draft at brewery. A little too boring. Maybe compared to the others. Light hops, heavy sweetness. Some booze showing through. Meh.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber. Aroma is dank tropical fruit and grapefruit with some sweet malts and pine. Taste is sweet and malty mango with a big citrus pith finish. Lingering piney bitterness. Nice, and I sense much more Three Floyds than Half Acre.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 bottle purchased form the brewery. Deep red pour decent head. Smell is hlf acre yeast and pine, some pinesol and lemon, bit of tropical notes. Flavor has a light bit of specialty malt which is caramally and toasty it has flavors of tangerine and pine, with a pervasive finishing bitterness. So many Mosaic hopped beers coming out, maybe the crop was good. Also wanted to say that the bottle cap on this beer is impressive.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
07-DEC-2013, bottle @home, from Mikkeller & Friends. A gift.
Slight gusher. Hazy amber with almost white head. A wonderfull hoppy aroma with a good dose of malts. Grape fruit, pine, and exotic fruits.
Taste the same with the malts more forward, mostly in the form of caramel.
Very hoppy, some sweetness but finish is dry. Somewhat like an IIPA but never that sweet, and thinner body - medium at the most.
Very nice brew.
