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.

Draft at the Half Acre Tap Room. Hazy light orange color. Smell has prickly hops to it, again, the strong citrus and piny notes of a West Coast hopped beer. Toasty malts are closer to the fore, but it still carries a hop punch of grapefruit juice and resin.

Draft: Clear, light gold, white head. Grapefruit, lemon aroma. Strong, sharp, citrus and grapefruit-peel taste..... An ultra-solid citrus-driven IPA..... Very nice.

Dogbrick (11492) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of zesty citrus, herbal hops and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

KyotoLefty (9305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2016
Tap at Publican in ORD. Deep hazy gold with a thick, low head. Nice tropical fruit and citrus hop nose with a bit of biscuity malt in the background. Crisp grapefruit flavor, passion fruits, and a great, bitter, peppery finish. Great IPA.

I am a fan of all the Half Acres Iíve tried to this point. The Vallejo IPA is certainly no exception. A nice orangey-amber color. A fluffly white head. A nice citrus, fruity aroma. The taste is hoppy, citric, floral, island-y (I was pleased to see a pineapple variation because there is an almost pineapple flavor in there as well -or maybe it was the power of insinuated suggestion). Very, very good.

I had this at global brew festival. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrus, pine, mildly sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phaleslu (9380) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2016
16 oz. can via trade. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with a small white head that settles unevenly, finally into a ring and thin island of film. Only one ring of lace remains in the glass. Fresh lemon and orange and lighter grapefruit citrus, zesty florals, pale malts, spritzy mineral water, herbs and grass, and only a bit of pine. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, refreshing, clean, and mildly bitter mouthfeel. Such a nice everyday IPA.
