Sent to me fresh by RC0032, a fantastic trader who i regularly trade with. I let this one sit in my fridge for a couple months because I had too many other sours/stouts to drink.
A - nice orange hue, somewhat clear with a bit of chill haze.
S - I'm sure a lot of the hop aroma dissipated, but I still get a nice citrusy smell. It's still hoppy in aroma, no real maltiness comes out.
T - A perfect, citrusy hop flavor rolls across the tongue. Slight bitterness, but nothing overpowering. I think the time on this bottle has exposed the tiny bit of maltiness that I love in a great DIPA. The finish is what makes this beer top notch in the category. The way that It can get all the grapefruit, citrus and malt flavor all to balance harmoniously with that crisp, clean finish is wonderful.
M - perfect carbonation. Not tingly, but not flat. Good enough to accentuate the flavor properly.
O - Wow! Even after too many months in the fridge, this met and exceeded all my standards for a DIPA. I love the citrusy hops, I love that tint of malt backbone. I could drink multiples of this without ever getting sick of it. Next time (if there is a next time) I'll drink it fresh. I'll admit that I am a bit biased to West Coast Ipa's, but Half Acre continuously impresses me with their offerings! Well done guys!

Pours a hazed glowing orange with not much fizz.
Aroma explodes with citrus and tropical fruit. Guava, lemon, grapefruit plus some pine sap.
Taste is laser focused on the hops. Intense pine resin and grapefruit,
Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation. Sticky and mouth coating flavor.
One of my favorite hop bombs now has competition from Half Acre's new Navaja...hahaha. Good for me!
