UPDATED: FEB 22, 2011 Growler thanks to a gracious ba... Pours a medium semi-transparent orange brown hue and topped with a thin light just off-white head... Aroma is fresh with citra with a dank herbaceousness. Solid... Flavors are much of the same with citra and fresh herbalness upfront, tea and earth on the backend. Pale biscuity backbone at the tailend. Mild and tamed bitterness through the finish. Quality session apa that packs quite the flavorful punch from such a small package. i could drink lots of this offering and hope they continue to make this during the spring and summer months. I like this as much as or perhaps even more so than DC. thetomG (250) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Clear amber color with a nice thick layer of tan foamy head. Good amount of lacing left around the glass.
Aroma is excellent - the citra hops really shine through here (and to a lesser degree the Falconer) and I have to say the aroma is clearly my favorite aspect of this beer.
Flavor has some mild bitterness, along with some grapefruit/citrus aspects.
Body is a bit lighter than I’d prefer, but helps to make this beer extremely drinkable.
I think I’d give Daisy Cutter the slight nod due to its bigger body and more intense bitterness, but this is a tasty varietal and something I’d recommend checking out. fata2683 (2202) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2011
enjoyed during 2011 RBWG pours dirty blond with a medium off white head. Aroma is big citrus hops and grassy malts. Flavor is the same the hops in this are very nice, not your average pale ale, bordering on IPA. holdenn (2127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Growler pour. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. Floral earthy and grapefruit aroma - stronger on the floral/earthy notes than anything else. Crisp hops minty and dry. Bitter crisp and really nice. Those citra hops are awesome. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Deep, dull orange pour with a medium eggshell colored head. Aroma of orange sherbet, pine, some spruce, earthy hoppiness. light grapefruit. Some apricot and melon as well. Fruit cocktail. Flavor of orange, apricot and fruit cocktail, mild pineapple and juicy mango. Medium bitterness, nice flavorful hop presence. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Finishes perfectly dry and hoppy. Really excellent session pale ale.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2011 Pours a medium brown out of a grwoler with as much off white foamy head as you want. Hop grass aroma. Watery flavor, but hoppy. Feels a bit unfinished, actually. Still a pretty good beer,though. My wife says, "I wouldn’t drink that voluntarily.". Repour from a growler a year later. Next batch? Very hoppy aroma, sweet and fruity. Flavor is hoppy also. I think this beer has been hopped up a bit more, or it’s fresher. I like this beer. sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Growler from Half Acre drank on 2/19/11. Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Sweet malty flavor up front with a nice, bitter hop finish. I know it is listed as a pale ale, but seemed more like an IPA to me. Capa (3617) - DC, Washington DC, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Golden orange with a white head. Aroma was citrus and tropical fruits, light sweetness, floral notes. Medium thin body. Flavor was heavy on the hops with light malt backbone. Tropical and citrus fruit tones, floral, sweet candied malts. Love how much flavor is packed into the low abv. Delicious.
