16 oz can courtesy of a new trading buddy of mine - thanks! Poured in to a tulip.
Appearance: Pours a bright radiant copper penny, a really gorgeous clear golden hue that reveals a great deal of gentle, rolling internal carbonation. The head is spectacular, a mammoth free form wisp of marshmallow cream with above average retention that leaves huge networks of interconnected, interweaving bubbles up and down the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Resinous, sticky hop leafiness and pithy, fleshy citrus dominate a moderately toasty, biscuity backing aroma. Fat, sticky citrus and dank, sappy pine and tobacco mingle nicely, with the pithiness of the citrus resonating nicely with the earthiness and leafy notes present elsewhere here. The backbone is dry, biscuity, with some nice hints of caramel.
Taste: A let down after the aroma, the flavor profile seems to be lacking in the depth and character that the nose was. Dryer even than I was expecting, the bitterness if pungent, mineral like, acidic, pleasant for what it is but lacking in the sweet, inviting flavorful burst that you get from those worldclass citrus IPAs.
Mouthfeel: Light and breezy, with a ton of lift and some great smooth, fluffy character. The carbonation is near perfect, elevating consistently, evenly, and for a long time.
Drinkability: Cheers to Half Acre for getting so much out of 5.2%. A ton of hop character in this one, and it definitely seems to be what they do best. This would have paired wonderfully with some sharp cheddar, and can imagine it being a really great "thirst quencher" IPA.

This is my go-to beer whenever I need something dependable. So crisp and smooth. Light-bodied and just the right amount of hops. Good for any season. There's not many pale ales out there that can compete with this. Even better is the brewery is right up the street!
