A huge thanks to Will (Willseph) for going to the release and then dropping it off today for me. Cheers buddy!

Appearance – Pours into a tulip with a clear dark golden color and about a finger of off white head that dissipates slowly leaving spotty lacing.

Smell – Lots of hops, pine, and citrus. White pepper, lemon zest, and grapefruit. Very little if any malt backbone. A very nice aroma though not extremely in-your-face.

Taste – A floral hoppy blast up front reminiscent of regular daisy cutter. That is where the similarities between the two beers end. More pine and citrus fruits mixed with peppery lemon zest. Quite tasty.

Mouthfeel – Medium to lighter bodied, plentiful carbonation.

Overall – A solid offering from Half Acre. Wish they made this on a regular basis.

Poured from a Growler into a Half Acre Tulip

A- Golden Orange look, slightly cloudy with little head.

S- Hoppy/citrus smell is apparent, but nowhere as strong as say a Hopslam.

T- Very "thin" clean taste of the flavor, great flavor and easy to drink for certain. A fresh taste comes to mind. I don't feel a bitterness as I do from some others.

M- "thinly" feel on the palette, crisp, lenders on the tongue after each sip. Which I love.

O- This is a must try and have again as well. Glad the wife and I bought a Growler and a couple bombers as this is a once a year release.

All I have to say is WoW.

Huge thanks goes out to MarkFy for sending this brew my way in a recent trade. I'm a big fan of Half Acre and have been looking forward to trying this one. Cheers to you, Mark!

Pouring into a Jester King tulip. Slightly hazy medium-orange color. Thin off-white head with lacing and legs.

Big lemon rind in the aroma with some herbal support. Pine needles and well-masked booze.

Strong presence of herbal hop flavors. Citrus flavors present too but more of a background. Moderate-high bitterness. Dry finish with a lingering bitter. Touches of toasty malt sweetness.

Medium-light in body with a moderate level of carbonation.

Although I can't help but wonder how much bite this beer has lost it continues to drink well. Great hop/bitterness presence and plenty of balance and drinkability.
