wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Tasted on 12/4/11 from a 22oz bomber bottle purchased at Half Acre. Pours a hazy but bright colored orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to uneven lace. The nose is fresh grapefruit, orange peel, and light cereal malt, with just a hint of earthy yeast. The flavor is full of fresh grapefruit and orange peel with a touch of tropical fruit, light cereal malt, and nice bitterness. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long bitter grapefruit and orange peel finish.

This poured a dark yellow to orange color with an off white head. Aroma was lots and lots of citrus and piney notes, not really much else. Flavor was just straight fruity hops, hardly any maltyness at all, but not very bitter either. A perfect example of hop flavor vs. hop bitterness.

Bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. Dank grapefruit and citrusy hop aromas. Not very well balanced with all kinds of bland hop notes.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bomber. Pours a murky orange yellow with a small minimal head. Aroma is super orangy, very nice amarillo? cut grass, light sweet note, maybe citric tangerine. Very sessionable! A little more approachable then daisy cutter but just as flavorful, medium punch of bitterness at the tail end that lingers, some orange up front, very nice and super drinkable. Thin body with light carbonation.

andyhwcinc (1883) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Purchased at Half Acre Brewery in Chicago, IL; enjoyed with a good friend while watching game 7 of the World Series. Appearance pale yellow, slightly cloudy, thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, touch of citrus, smells light. Taste is crisp and light, definite grapefruit, light hops, crisp, slightly refreshing. This is a session ale, but at $8 a bomber its a bit steep.

dinkle50 (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Grapefruit smell right away. Golden pour with a small head that fades quick. Slight grassy flavor. Lots of hop and grapefruit too. This is an easy drinking pale ale that blasts your taste buds. Pretty solid.

nbondi (203) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Murky gold with meager white head. If I didnt know any better, Id swear I was sniffin a Daisy Cutter. Same bright herbaceous hops. Maybe a bit more fruity sweetness. Fruityness shows up in the taste. This does, however, seem to be a very close relative of Daisys. Nice juicy orange and grapefruit with lemon and grassy notes. Medium body, well carbonated. Very good.

fresh bottle courtesy of bauermj, thanks man! pours a coudy pale yellow, has a nice aroma and flavor, nice light malt profile in the back end. a bit thin in the body, but not too bad. nice hop profile, good stuff, drinks really fast and easy.

chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2011
bottle... dark hazy gold, a bit or orange, not much of a head, watery light tin and thin... really enjoyable aroma, tons of fresh hops, a touch dank, a bit of cascade, not much malt, more of hop bomb... tastes a touch to grassy, could use balance but pretty good, and happily HF finally put out a good beer in the last year

Bottle; pour is murky dark golden with a modest off white head that retains on the average side in this glass. The nose is caramel,biscuits, grapefruit really. This is a nice, fairly balanced pale that doesnt seem to have any remarkable elements, but overall; a nice drinker.
