Aroma:Sweet cotton candy and grapefruit with sugar on top.
Appearance:Gold in color, lots of white head, and pretty bubbles.
Taste:Hugely hoppy! Freshly cut grass, grapefruit, citrus, lemon. There is a lot of sweetness in this beer. These flavors stick around through the midtaste, but all that remains on the aftertaste is harsh bitterness.
Palate:Light to medium body, good carbonation, and a little hop astringency.
Overall:This is an amazingly delicious DIPA. The huge grapefruit hops in this beer really shine. MOlsonNotBeer (5) - Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2015 does not count
Love this beer. Only wish it was available more often. Much better on tap though a bottle is just fine. Thankful I know people who live close enough to pick up a couple bottles when I can’t make it down for a growler before it sells out. Hoping this is produced more frequently with the expansion.

Draft. Pours turbid orangy with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is huge tangerine, black pepper, pineapple, hops. Tastes rich, smooth, with a huge bready malt flavor taking center stage to the huge tropical fruit, citrus, fresh ground black pepper, and resiny piney hops. Wonderful. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2012
Purchased at Half Acre in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at home while doing some work while watching the White Sox home opener. Appearance is a bright cloudy gold with a rich frothy white head. Aroma is very bright with citrus notes, very similar to Daisy Cutter but maybe a bit more of a malt presence. Taste is fantastic, they managed to turn up the volume on the hops (DC was already hoppy) while adding a slight malt characteristic that sets this apart from standard DC. Fantastic DIPA, great stuff, possibly my fav Half Acre release yet. jacobrm (39) - - MAR 11, 2015
Very very smooth. The head diminishes quickly but the taste is fantastic. Very hoppy but balanced amazingly well

22 oz bottle. Tasted on 3/13/15. Bottle from West Lakeview Liquor. Aroma is fantastic with tons or fruity, juicy hops. Amazing flavor & perfectly balanced. A must try if you love hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone thetomG (246) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Poured from a bomber into my 3 Floyds pub pint glass.
The one is a stunning cloudy honey color with some huge fluffy white head that dissipates over time but leave a TON of thick lacing up the side of the glass.
The aroma is is excellent with some piney & grassy hoppiness dominating. Flavors are quite similar but with an initial burst of citrusy sweetness giving way to a nice strong (but not overwhelming) bitterness in the finish.
Carbonation is spot on and it feels very nice on the palate.
I’m really enjoying this beer and will definitely be drinking this one again. bauermj (1) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2010 does not count

This is a very drinkable beer. I think it hides the booze very well. It has somewhat of a tropical feel to it, with a little bit of pine. A nice example of a DIPA bhiner41 (189) - Darien, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Excellent, almost a double IPA taste. Very refreshing strong aroma of grape fruit. I wish we could get this in the Chicago suburbs. Beerjunkie15 (55) - Romeoville, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2012
A great double IPA. Pours from a bottle golden orange with a white head. The alcohol hits ya. Definitely a refreshing beer after a long day. Could have multiple easily.
