Murky gold with meager white head. If I didn’t know any better, I’d 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 Daisy’s. Nice juicy orange and grapefruit with lemon and grassy notes. Medium body, well carbonated. Very good. NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bomber from Half Acre. A deep hazed gold with some orange at the middle. Nose reminds me a lot of alpha king with faint crystal and cascade notes at the front. Nicely hopped and fresh.on tasting, crisp bitterness and a sturdy maln background, again bringing alpha king to mind. Nice and crisp and refreshing. Really nice beer. cfrancis (3574) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
Thanks to Matt for this. Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a thin white top and good lacing. Aroma is thick grapefruit hops and grains. Taste is a blast of grapefruit and citrus hops. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Growler from the brewery. It’s puzzling that Half Acre came out with a "summer beer" in October, however it was 80 degrees today so I guess it was fitting. This beer pours a hazy orange amber with medium white head. It looks nice and fits the summer theme. Big hoppy aroma, with nice floral and piney hop notes. Behind the hops I also get some fruity juicy mango and tropical fruit notes. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, and crisp. In additon to pine and citrus, I get a lot of mango and tangerine. I’m a big fan of the balance between the bitter, the fruity notes, and the bready/crackery malts. This is crisp, refreshing, and very easy to drink. Excellent pale ale.

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.

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. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a big, soapy white head. Plenty of citrus and floral hop notes with only a subtle bread/malt aroma. Pretty simple aroma, but quite nice. The flavor has lots of citrus flavor and a bit of floral character with a soft but sufficient bitterness. A light malt sweetness in the background. Light bodied with medium carbonation.

Pours orange with a thin white head. Flavor is hoppy, with that signature half acre flavor. Nice malt backbone. Had a draft pours at half acre. One of their best pales.
