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.

Cask at Jerry’s. Pale orange-gold with big, foamy, white head / Grassy, slightly sour nose of citrus and pine / Medium body, cask soft body with low carbonation, some sourness, a touch watery, otherwise good balance and lightly bitter finish / Lightly sour flavors of grass, dandelion, and dry pine, with notes of lemon and grapefruit / Probably not ready for prime time, but an interesting, herbaceous brew.

Draft at Jerry’s. Pale orange-gold with big, foamy, white head / Bright, sweet nose of citrus, honey, pine, and soap / Medium body, fat with low carbonation, a hint watery, with otherwise good balance and bitter finish / Flavors of orange peel, grapefruit, soap, fresh cut pine, and candied sugar / Moderate body issues detract from this potentially great beer.

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 (2398) - 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

CanIHave4Beers (3399) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle, shared in a location remote to my dining room.
Pours a hazy yellow with a good head and good white lacing on the glass.

The aroma is huge & hoppy. It’s a totally inviting bouquet of citrus fruit, melon, grass and some very light onion.

The flavor is peachy, bright, & clean. It’s moderately bitter with a nice fruity hop character all around. The beer is fairly dry.

Pretty darn good.

PhillyCraft (3516) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 On tap at bainbridge for 3 bucks a pint, can’t go wrong. Pours super murky brownish golden murk with small white head. Aromas and flavor are dank pineapple, grapefruit, pine resin, and oranges. Medium to fuller body with an awesome resinous bitter finish. Dang this thing is on point right now.
