$3 taster at Half Acre’s tap room. Dark brown color, a bit hazy, with a thin head. Big buttload of what I thought were Amarillo hops, more fool me. Piney in the main, but allowing some tropical fruit to to appear too. In fact, with the malt added in, the big hop comes in almost like a fruity candy. Yes, very sweet, and too rich.
Bottle. Clear Amber pour with a off white head. Mild citrus hop bouquet. Mild/bland citrus hop notes. Below average body and mouthfeel. arminjewell (9724) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big white fruit, orange peel, slight grapefruit into nice pineapple, slight mango into a bit of yeast, bread. Taste is a mix of pineapple, mango, some orange into a bit of yeast, bread, slight grapefruit, finishing bitter. Tasty. mikem409 (2032) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2015

on draft at brewery. A little too boring. Maybe compared to the others. Light hops, heavy sweetness. Some booze showing through. Meh. dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber. Aroma is dank tropical fruit and grapefruit with some sweet malts and pine. Taste is sweet and malty mango with a big citrus pith finish. Lingering piney bitterness. Nice, and I sense much more Three Floyds than Half Acre. Christpuncher (3215) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2014
has a nice grapefruit and bubblegum flavor to start with a nice hoppy bitter finish. had a bottle bottle pour with kaser. pours a reddish color like a red wine with a white head. peach hints. this is an excellent ipa. kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Grapefruit and apricot taste. Candy sweet backbone. Smell is orange vanilla and tropical. This is my wheelhouse beer. Fantastic. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2014
2014 bottle purchased form the brewery. Deep red pour decent head. Smell is hlf acre yeast and pine, some pinesol and lemon, bit of tropical notes. Flavor has a light bit of specialty malt which is caramally and toasty it has flavors of tangerine and pine, with a pervasive finishing bitterness. So many Mosaic hopped beers coming out, maybe the crop was good. Also wanted to say that the bottle cap on this beer is impressive.
