Originally brewed under the name Daly Double. This beer is a tribute to a friend that passed away. Space was his nickname as a young man and this beer will be a regular offering at our brewery only; our way of keeping him a regular.

Poured on tap at tap room 20 oz.

Poured a hazy, very dark orange to light brown with a small fingers worth of white head. Hop forward nose with orange teases as the citra hop shows it's lovely character. Palate follows the nose closely with a huge citra hop presence. Big tropical fruit hits mid sip. The finish is a great balance between malt and dry hop. Really nice medium mouth feel as it isn't quite as big as I have become accustomed to. Low carbonation makes this ale extremely drinkable really enjoying this. Overall, damn, I now know why Half Acre is so highly looked on with those that live in their distro area. Super friendly staff at the taproom bartender Adam is great. The tap room is cool concrete bar with a fake bear head. All in all I will be coming back here for growers once my bottle stoppers are in. Cheers. (832 characters)

22oz brown bomber, no freshness date.

Its like getting slapped in the face with a bag of oranges while chewing on a marmalade sandwich. A big IPA that almost straddles the line between AIPA and DIPA. Seek a bottle out if you can.

LOOK: Orange amber, clear with a beautiful lacing

SMELL: Citric zest, mint, faint caramel, fresh pine sap, tobacco, pineapple skin

TASTE: Macerated whole oranges, very smooth, medium body, marmalade, bread crust, hop bitterness, warming alcohol, cashews, peppery, papaya (505 characters)

Reddish-copper in color with a slight haze.

Fresh pine, orange zest, resin, white and yellow flowers, tangellos and a lightly dank quality.

Citrus, pine needles, resin, nutmeg, light brown sugar, roasted malt.

Medium bodied and very clean on the palate. Just the right amount of bitterness.

While some of the descriptors are sweet, there is nothing sweet about this beer. Great balance and a masterful use of bittering in the hops to just the right proportion. Finishes wonderfully clean and smooth. Really well done. (521 characters)

Growler poured into a FFF tulip

A - Deep, reddish brown with orange tint. Small layer of foam on the side.

S - Floral with sweet citrus, pineapple, light orange peel, and sweet strawberry. Very nice, complex and strong nose.

T - Slight pine bitterness with nice orange citrus in the middle. The strawberry comes in the middle to give it a nice sweetness. The floral and a slight bitterness that comes in the finish.

MF - Light body with light carbonation in it. Slight hop resin remains on the tongue in the finish.

O - Nice light hoppy beer with a lot of flavor. I like the strawberry and red fruits with the floral aspect. The strawberry fruit makes me wonder if they threw in Galaxy hops to get that flavor. (715 characters)

on tap @ the brewery

served in that dope half acre stemware - bright coppery orange body - this is a great IPA - nice waves of tropical fruit, sugary goodness, pine needles, sweet sappy goodness. Really nice stuff - apparently my palate was just blown when i tried this at GABF, because I really liked this at the brewery. (323 characters)
