COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at Half Acre Brewery, Chicago IL. Pours a straw golden with a white head that fades slowly. Nose has passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus. Taste is more passionfruit and toffee malts. Not much of a kick. Hoes down so fucking easy. Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Half Acre brings a lot of consistency to the table with their Pale Ales, and this IPA is no different. If you came for bitterness and dank tropical notes then you get them here. Bracing and bold.

italianjohn (2420) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pale golden pour hazy with lots of striped sticky lacing and white creamy head .... Aroma of citrusy grapefruit, resiny and light piney hops .... Taste is bitter and of grapefruity citrusy orange hops, piney hops and resinous with a nice malty backbone .... up there in the ibus. Dry and bitter finish is dry with a lingering bitter citrusy bite
