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.
