On tap at Freshcraft. Pours a hazy orange gold with large frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong dank and citrus. Medium body, juicy hop, lemon zest, grapefruit, light bitterness, very good.

16 oz. can. Shared with John. Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, ovre a slightly hazy dark yellow (SRM 4) body......nose is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, moderate dank tones, minimal malts, balance to the hops.......taste is mild toasted malts, with light cracker, bread, then moderate pine, resin, grass, light tropical tones from the hops, finishing with mild hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation with light acid. This is a hop dominated beer, with quite hidden malts. Bitterness is a bit low. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

4 pack of pint cans from Mile High. Good looking beer with a fairly clear light amber body and a white head. Lacing is pretty too. Aroma is dank and genuine with more pine, herb, and spice than anything else. The palate is pretty dry and well carbonated. Hop flavor is pretty big with herb and evergreen with the most modest caramel suggestion to balance. Bitterness isnt huge, just appropriate for the style. Very good pale ale in the sense that its very clean, fairly balanced, not necessarily mistakable for an IPA, and a joy to drink.

Piney grassy medicinal hop aroma and flavor. Balanced well by the malt. Lighter than gone away as far as malt but still full flavored. Finishes with a piney bitterness. All flavors go well together. I think I like a bit more malt balance, but still a very nice beer, and easy drinking. Also has some mango tropical hops in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2017 Thanks Zack for the can! Poured into a shotglass showing moderately filtered honey yellow with spare white foam. The nose shows moderately intense notes of lemon and pineapple with some notes of steel tank. The palate is medium bodied and fully carbonated. Flavors of lemon and grapefruit with light citrus and a very balanced malt backbone. Followed by a moderate bitterness on the finish with another subtle resurgence of grainy malt on the back end. Simple, clean, refreshing, and very well balanced. Just a solid representation of the style.

Can, poured into a tulip glass. A hazy amber color with a good amount of foamy head. The smell is all Hops as the citrus, floral, and pine notes hit you right away. The flavor has the same combination but in different strengths. The pine hits first in the flavor vs the citrus & floral notes in the nose. The feel is a little creamy which adds to the overall experience. This is an excellent Pale Ale. Im glad I can get it so regularly.

Can. Hazy dark gold with a small, off-white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of grapefruit, orange, pine, toasted malt, biscuit, light caramel and floral notes. Flavor is the same. Medium bodied, smooth with a dry end.

Type: 16-oz. can Glass: Clear hotel snifter glass From: Malloys Finest Wine & Spirits in Naperville, Ill. Price: $9.99 for a 4-pack Purchased: Sept. 16, 2016 Consumed: Sept. 16, 2016 Reviewed as: American Pale Ale Misc.: Packaged on Aug. 22, 2016 Took a long time to decide what to get at Malloys, but finally settled on Half Acres Daisy Cutter Pale Ale after seeing that the 3 Floyds Alpha King was almost three months old. Had high hopes for this one. Poured a light amber hazy color with four fingers of rocky, creamy white head. Lots of bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass, looking like a snow globe. Looked pulpy underneath. World-class lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.50) Smelled Citra, floral, Cascade, resin, pine, lime, reminding me slightly to Sixpoints Resin. Also go tangerine, lemon zest and sugary nectarine. Hard to not think of this as an IPA on the smell. (Smell - 4.50) Taste was not nearly as good as the nose, getting tangerine, Citra, bitter citrus rind, orange blossom, sugary floral, light resin, citrus zest, lemon, lime and watery pine. (Taste - 3.75) Light body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. (Feel - 4.00) This was good, but not great. I think I overrated it a smidgeon. (Overall - 4.00) 4.05 91 A-

Golden color with an ample white head. Aroma is of crystal malt with a hint of hops. Taste is slightly grassy with a clean finish. A decent pale ale.

muzzlehatch (4938) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Draught pint at The Rock in Beloit, WI, August 29th. Clear pale amber verging on gold, with a thickish lasting creamy head...nose is faint lemon-piney, grows slightly more distinct with warmth to include a vague herbal character (thyme, rosemary)....barely a hint of sweetness throughout, very dry with a strong citric acidity throughout, woody, slightly resinous hops dominating the whole taste...slightly watery but decent enough body, moderate to strong carbonation. A disappointment given its reputation for sure; I didnt actually even finish it, not that it was that bad, but what was the point? The Surly Todd I had before this was too sweet, this was too dry, I guess like Goldilocks I should have had a third beer that was "just right" but alas didnt have the time.
