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
Serving type: bottle

9 hours in a car yesterday to and from Chicago, too much money spent, and this is the first beer from the trip that I'm going to enjoy. Snagged a howler at Half Acre, pouring into a Spiegelau glass.
A: Pours a crystal clear dark golden color with a slight copper tone. About 2 fingers of white foamy head that reduces slow, and leaves a fair amount of lacing.
S: Not a bomb, but a very well balanced citrus and spice combo. Some lingering sweetness in the background.
T: Nothing really takes lead on the flavor. I get citrus, I get spices and pine, and malty base, but not a single flavor pops. It seems to favor citrus at first, and as it warms up a but it seems to favor pine.
M: Sweet and smooth! Goes down fairly sweet, not much bitterness to speak of. My only complaint about this is it does feel a bit thin.
O: Very solid offering from Half Acre, glad I was able to try it. When I was there, it wasn't available in the Tap Room, just the shop next door. One of my favorite IPAs from Chicago to date, would love to see this available in cans!
Serving type: growler
