Notes/Commercial Description:
Heyoka is a western charged firecracker. We conjured the classics in Chinook and Amarillo then laid them on a bed of pale malt. This India Pale Ale shoots straight to the bitter edge before falling into a mellow haze. Deep gold and ready to travel into the distance. The Heyoka resides in the opposite and is said to use the wind as sticks to beat the drum of thunder.

3.84/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

16 oz can without freshness date poured into a Speigelau Tulip

Pours a clear orange-amber color with a white head of good retention and lacing, very pretty.

Smell is of fresh floral hops, similar to the hop profile found in daisy cutter, piney and resinous, not terribly aromatic though

Taste is of floral hops and is lightly bitter. Very dry, almost no sweetness to this.

Mouthfeel is light, dry, crisp, clean, no stickiness, moderate carbonation.

Overall I had hoped to enjoy this more. Half Acre makes some awesome IPAs but this one falls short of their high standards.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bright and hazy golden body. An inch of white head leaves behind cascading layers of lace.

Citrus and floral aromas. Orange and lilac. Heavily aromatic.

Floral and herbal with a light touch of grapefruit. Pale malt, bready.

Dry and very bitter. Slight tea like astringency.

I love growlers of whatever fresh IPA HA has on tap. They're always satisfying. Another top notch beer.
