Vallejo, an India Pale Ale we brewed with coastal spirit. This 6.7% hop crasher sharply dives into the very deep waters of bitter beers.

Thanks for the Growler guys! Aroma is killer! Maybe the best or 2nd best nose I’ve had on a HA. Simcoe and Nelson play so nice together! Flavor is bright, mostly piney simcoe, with a touch of grapey nelson, somewhat hollow finish, ultra dry, moderately bitter, crazy good as is, but would be even better at 5% ABV in the summer heat! Excellent work here.

Bomber. Pours a hazy, pale golden-orange, medium white head with decent retention and lacing. Nose is resinous, herbal and piss. Mouth is dry medium bodied, hints of melon and then massive pine-pitch and citrusy hops that quickly go all grapefruit-pithy bitter, with some maltiness semi succeeding to balance it out. Finish is looong on the bitterness. Good summer weather beer (and it did hit 70 today here in the City of Wind for the first time in months).

The best ipa they have. Really fruity and similar to a west coast style. Pours a cloudy orange in color. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours a hazy yellow/honey with a medium white head. aroma has light citrus, some grass and herbal notes. flavor is more toward the herbal side...hints of scallion and grass. mouthfeel is medium and fairly lively with a dry herbal finish hinting very slightly at scallion.

Growler poured into a 12 oz glass. Very hazy pale orange color with decent head and excellent lacing. Grass and pine on the nose comes though with melon and firm bitterness on the palette. Nice dry finish. This is a great IPA featuring Nelson Sauvin hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4 oz. taster at the tap room. Very hazy yellow color with a thin bubbly head. Nice West Coast style IPA here. Lots of bright hops in aroma and flavor. Nose starts me with tropical fruit, citrus and leads to some pine resin. The flavor reminds me of a Simcoe and Centennial hop blend. Pungent grapefruit, wood mustiness, grassy hints with some sweet and bready and crystal malts. The Bitterness was in the medium scale but that was only 4 oz. worth. I wonder what it would be after about 16 oz. of this gem. Really refreshing and tasty.

Clear amber color with lasting ivory head. Floral, earthy hop aromas with grainy caramel. medium body, average carbonation. Big hoppy floral, spicy flavors with a solid caramel base---good ipa.

5 ounces at the Half Acre tap room. Light orange appearance, moderate amount of foam and bubbles. Huge grapefruit and pine aroma. Nectarines, muskmelon, and grapefruit flavors that play around together nicely, dry throughout and bitter at the end. Medium bodied, mouth coating flavors and aromas. Juicy and pungent. Overall, this is a dark horse in the Half Acre lineup and one of their better ipa’s. Vallejo really carries its weight for a medium abv, regular ipa..
