3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is pine, grapefruit, and hemp. Medium mouthfeel with fruity hop, pine, and nice bitter finish. Very good.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber poured into a stemmed tulip. The aroma is a very strong citrus, lemon, grapefruit, mango, and pineapple combination, with a touch of caramel and pine. It pours a hazy, but bright yellow color with a white, tight, microbubble head that leaves a messy, web-like lace. The tongue picks up a nice balance of medium high sweetness and bitterness. The full bodied beer has a chalky, but creamy texture with tons of slightly prickly carbonation. Its got a hefty pine and citrus peel bitter finish with a nice compliment of caramel and fruity sweetness in the background. The citrus peel and pine lingers in the aftertaste with a bit of a toasted caramel character.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a hazy golden hue with a mostly lasting head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, peach, melon, resin, pine, dank, and pepper along with some biscuit and mineral water. The taste is bitter for sure but not a palate killa with hefty doses of juicy fruit, hop spice, and earthy minerals. The finish is dry and chalky, still quite enjoyable. I had this on tap a while back but alas it is one of many backlogged ratings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet beer. Passion/tropical fruit nose with pine and grapefruit taste. Has an almost immediate bitterness that is harsher than most other HA beers I've had but it kind of builds into a beer that is different from half acres other portfolio which is nice. I'd love a HalfAcre hop mix pack! Maybe with the new brewery we'll get it! Daisy, akari, heyoka, and ginger twin or space or Vallejo or mr o or sticky fat or etc etc etc in a 4 pack mix!!!!! Great idea... Please ... Thanks for another great beer half acre

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a pale, hazed dull orange color with a medium white head. Big, bright citra aroma, with lots of grapefruit, citrus peel, resin and pineapple. Some pine and tropical fruit notes as well. Flavor is very fruity with a quite a bit of hop bitterness. Tropical, crisp, refreshing, with a pleasant lingering bitterness. A wonderful IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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).
