Pours an opaque brown/amber with an off-white head. Some lacing.
Strong aroma of lemon, citrus, pine, and bready malt. Really smacks you in the face.
Upfront taste of bitter citrus, lemon/lemon zest. Bready malt middle. Bitter finish of citrus and lemon. Light sweetness at times too. Lingering flavor of bready malts with a slight citrus bitterness.
Medium body with moderate carbonation. Creamy/foamy finish.
Nice citrusy aroma and flavor ... fairly lemony. Good bitterness. Not a fan of the foamy finish--makes the mouthfeel seem too heavy.
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!
