This beer is the first from Half Acre that I got the privledge to try and it is nothing short of amazing! Can’t wait to have it again! HopAutonomous (12) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Smooth like a coastline’s fine sand during a falling tide. As aromatic as a dew laden prairie on misty June morning. Plus the label features hipster donkeys exploring outer space. kkleu357 (634) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Made it to Half Acre for the release. Haven’t had it from the bottle yet, but got some on tap and also on cask with more Galaxy hops and Citra Hops. The cask was amazing BTW, so if you see it, try it.
As for the beer itself, it poured a slightly hazy burnt orange body. Nice white frothy head. Aroma of tropical fruits, hops, almost no sweetness. Taste is very similar. Lots of fruit, good amount of bitterness, and not much sweetness, just the way I like it. Vir4030 (603) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Beautiful sampler at oak pard. Hoppy aroma, very nice. Fan of daisy and smells great. Great flavor too. fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Aroma:Strong malty aroma. The hops are also nicely pronounced with orange and apricot. The freshly cut grass flavor that Daisy Cutter has is there too, but more subdued.
Appearance:Hazy orange in color with nice white head.
Taste:Tons of hop bitterness right up front. After my tongue has a chance to get used to the hops, I can start to taste more complex fruity flavors like orange and apricot/peach. These fruity flavors fade somewhat in the aftertaste, with the hop bitterness lingering long.
Palate:Medium body, a fair amount of hop astringency.
Overall:This is a great citrusy beer tailor made for hop-heads. I really enjoyed it, as I like testing my limits for really hoppy beers.

The aroma hits you in the sweet spot of your nostrilities, with big ole notes of apricot and hop funk sweetness. The taste is of a sensuous hop lover reminding you of why you fell in love with beer in the first place. Had it in tap at Owen & Engine. Troupis (251) - - JAN 29, 2016
My kind of IPA. Complex and piney hops. Great look and aroma.
On tap at The Gage in Chicago.

A: Copper/orange color with nice fluffy white head that lingers for a bit. Slight haze. S: Very fruity upfront with some pine. Candied tangerine, pineapple, mango, maybe a little bubblegum. Really nice aroma. T: Again fruity upfront with some of that expected breadiness from Half Acre. Get notes of mango pineapple, and sweet tangerine. Slight alcoholic taste. M: Crisp, dry, and not sweet. Just the way I like it. Medium body. O: I love this beer, really like it more than the regular Double Daisy. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Pours a very hazy, dark golden orange color with bright tangerine edges and a two finger white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap. Excellent retention, taking a while to settle and coating the glass with streaks of soapy lacing.
Dank sticky icky aroma with juicy buds, earthy resins, fresh cut grass, pine needle and spruce tip. The is followed by subtle summit onion character and a decent amount of tropical/citrus fruit sweetness. Light malt backbone with caramel sweetness, bread, biscuit and grainy graham cracker.
Full body with a blast of dry, earthy hop bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and malt backbone into a dry finish. Dank, earthy and resinous with sticky pine sap and spruce tip. Again, there’s a funky summit/onion presence but it’s subtle enough to provide balance without hindering the dank sticky hop bitterness. These elements are countered by a decent amount of citrus/tropical fruit and a sweet malt backbone. Lots of grapefruit and melon along with pineapple, orange slice and lemon pith. Some caramel sweetness but again, provides balance without interfering with the complex hop profile. Pale malts with bread, biscuit and grainy graham cracker. Overall, just an awesome hoppy beer that is complex while remaining extremely flavorful and dangerously drinkable. Love it! Berard (639) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark orange with murk and a thin white head. Heavy hop aroma detectable from a distance. Pineapple juice and pine. Pushing all the right buttons.
