Can. Amber with a bitter hoppy bite. Hops have minimal flavor other than bitterness. Rather disappointing. It’s almost like I had a different beer than everyone else is reviewing here.

Pours hazy orange with a large white head. Smells of pine, spruce, earthy, and some citrus. Taste is decently bitter, for a pale ale, with some solid citrus and resin flavors. Light-bodied with a slick texture and active mouth-carbonation, Half Acre Daisy Cutter finishes with a lingering bitterness. olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2013
16oz can. Clear gold pour with large white head. Hoppy aroma. Citrus and pine hop taste. jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 24, 2013
1 pint can. Looks light. Aroma strong of citrusy, bitter hops with some pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same with a lot of citrusy hops. Average texture. A really good beer for the style. pjames317 (94) - Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pounder from a 4pk purchased at Capone’s in East Norriton, PA. Pours a medium to light bodied amber blond with minimal head. Small ring provides good lacing for this fresh hopped beer. This is an esteemed pale ale from the midwest that imbues the senses with fresh floral hops. Grassy notes, light orange zest and crisp pale malt round out the profile. Taste is of a crisp hoppiness that gives the beer a distinction reserved normally for world-class pilseners. But this is unmistakably a pale ale that is hoppy yet balanced, musty yet floral. Would love to see this available (cans) in Philly on a regular basis. Really doesn’t get much better for a pale ale (Sorry, Yards).

UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Pours a cloudy bright orange color with a finger and a half of a white head that dissipates to a nice thick lacing. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. How a pale ale should look. Smells of tons of floral notes, some resinous, dank qualities, grapefruit, a soapy quality to it, some juicy fruits like pineapple. Do get some bread and grain as well from the malt. Taste starts with some resinous, yet juicy qualities from the hops such as grapefruit, just tons of floral, almost a perfume-like flavor. Then the middle brings some balance with wheat notes, grain, and carmel. Get some qualities here that may suggest some to say it is "watered down," but I disagree. The finish is more of the prominent floral qualities of the hops, as well as some pine, grass, pineapple, grapefruit, carmel. Crisp, light body with a creamy and thin mouthfeel. This is not on the Alpha King or Zombiedust level for apa’s, but it is definitely a quality, hoppy pale ale that I would gladly have anytime I can get my hands on some.

From a can...down the street from the brewpub. Nice assertive citrus and floral aroma. Crisp and easy to drink. Wish we could get this in MI. jeremytoni (3085) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2013
From a can poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2013

Appearance: The body is slightly hazy with an amber hue, lots of carbonation is in the body and the white head is towering over the body with a creamy texture that plateaus with great retention.
Aroma: The aroma is strong with grassy and earthy hops with a light grapefruit and orange aroma. I wish it were a bit stronger.
Taste: Citrus of oranges and light grapefruit are apparent immediately with mild bitterness, a bit watery, that leads to light orange and grassy notes, perhaps a bit of a tropical vibe on the finish. The hops are balanced very nicely with the malts, no complaints there.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a very well done pale ale, balanced very nicely and it’s priced nicely. I would buy this often in the summer if I were in distribution.
Citrus, herbs with slight, grass and balanced bitterness. Very clear and nicely hopped.
