jstraw (1946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2012
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.

Pailhead (5747) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, orange marmalade, grapefruit, pineapple, and a hint of dank hops. It’s a slightly hazy dull golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a tropical fruits, orange marmalade, and citrus. The finish has grapefruit, pine, and a touch of dank hops. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

On tap at Jake’s in Chicago on Lolla Eve. Pint glass. Great lacing with a minor head. Light and golden. Aroma sings with citrus serving as the melody and hops as the harmony. Taste feels a little bit wheaty with a decent citrus rind bitterness. Quality IPA that fulfills the primary goal of the style serving as a refreshing citrus influenced beer. Good work Half Acre. Vallejo!
