4.38/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle poured into my Half Acre pint glass...

Pours a dark gold color with ruby/amber highlights, nice and hazy, thick...Three fingers of super foamy soft white, meringue-like head forms and leaves a ton of lacing...I am beginning to notice a trend with Half Acre beers and their incredible head...

Super fruity and piny in the nose. Starts with loads of tropical and citrus fruit aromas, grapefruit, mango and orange...the sweetness gives way to an incredible smell of some damn fine sticky-icky...rounds out with some pine and cut grass...the sweetness comes back again on the back end...

Starts off with some initial sweetness, the tropical fruits in the nose come through in the taste...the sweet, juicy goodness is very short-lived as the beer makes a dramatic, bitter turn...super piny, resinous and oily, grassy and floral. The citrus/fruity aspects never make a return appearance, this beer stays piny and bitter till the end, becoming more and more so as I work through the bottle. Some alcohol starts to show through the more I drink...

Medium to full bodied, drinks thick and and oily. Carbonation is there but pretty subtle as this is a pretty thick and slick brew...finishes pretty dry...

Definitely enjoying this new one from Half Acre (who continue to release incredible beers...)...definitely a different beast than regular Daisy Cutter, the bitterness and body is really stepped up in this one. Not as easy to drink as the regular one and probably something I wouldn't reach for as often as the regular Daisy Cutter, but still, this one is a definite winner...
