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.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Growler thanks to the fellaís at HA. Pours a bight golden orange with a nice small fluffy white head. Aroma is bursting with the notes of citrus, orange, soft lemon and juicy fruit notes. Flavor is equally as good, lots of that citrus, some of the grapes in the Nelson coming out in the latter mouthfeel, very bright and fresh fruity character, drying out towards a fairly bitter finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Fine offering.

Tap at Local Option in Chicago. Hazy light gold pour with a small soapy white head. Aroma is dank and fruity. Similar taste. Bitter but not overly so. Tasty brew.

jonnyguns (1044) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2014
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 (239) - 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 (2356) - 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

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. Itís a totally inviting bouquet of citrus fruit, melon, grass and some very light onion.

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

Pretty darn good.

PhillyCraft (3391) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 On tap at bainbridge for 3 bucks a pint, canít 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.

DrnkMcDermott (2821) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2014
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.

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.
