3.55/5 rDev -15.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
5.2% AVV confirmed. 16 oz aluminum can served into a glass at a restaurant. Reviewed from notes taken in Chicago in March.
A: Pours a two finger white colour head with soft froth and nice cream. Nice thickness and good (5+ minute) retention. Body colour is a clear pale copper. Vibrant. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. I'm excited to try it.
Sm: Floral hops, light bitterness, and oily nectary character. Pleasant and inviting. No yeast or alcohol is detectable. Pale malts. Great for the style; really evocative. A moderate strength aroma.
T: Nectary and pleasant oily character. Pale malts form the body. I love the oily hops. Grapefruit comes off stale. Some bitterness, but it's pretty balanced otherwise. Pleasant to drink. Well built and nicely complex, with rounded well executed hop flavour for a pale ale. I quite like it.
Mf: Oily, smooth, and wet. Good thickness. Good carbonation. Complements the flavour profile well.
Dr: Very drinkable. Highly sessionable. Impressive. Hides ABV well. I quite like it, but I do think I expected more given its reputation. Still, it's solid. It's possible it was a biteen old since I had it at a restaurant. I couldn't find a bottled on or best before date. In any case, it's solid stuff and I'd like to try more beers from Half Acre.

Thanks to my awesome girlfriend for picking up this gem...
Poured from 16oz can into fluted snifter/fat tulip/whatever. Mostly clear honey orange color with a nice fluffy snow white head that fades a bit then slows down, fed by lively carbonation. Nice solid lacing is left as it slowly descends from there.
Smell is awesome; floral, clean malt, bright citrus and slight tropical fruit, with a bit of dank herbal.
Taste is very crisp, simple floral and bitter citrus rind hops with ghostly tropical fruit and sweeter citrus, clean grassy flavors. This is complex, flavorful but light on the palate and drinkable as hell. I could slam these all day, in the best way.
Mouthfeel is light, crisp and clean. Wet, not sticky at all. Awesome and refreshing
Overall, this is the best session beer I've had. Very light in the mouth, but full in flavor, crisp and clean, amazingly well done.
