look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

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.
