3.2/5 rDev -24.7%
Poured from a bomber into a half-pint chalice.
A: Hazy, medium amber color with less than one finger of diminishing white foam head. Medium lacing remains on the glass.
S: Dark citrus and husky toasted grain make for a predictable yet honest smell. Some herbaceous qualities round out the otherwise clean qualities.
T: Begins off-dry, with strong green herbaceous hop aromatics, a bit briny, as well as attendant spiciness suggestive of significant yeast phenolics. Crystal malt is mild yet present, coming across as unmodified by the fermentation process. Acidity is also mild into the middlewhere flavors become more bready and less influenced by the hop flavors. The finish is predictable, with appropriate bitterness, surging pine, and a mineral edge.
M: Medium viscosity, resinous and slightly acidic on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: This beer struggles to generate much interest, despite its rather bold display of sensory qualities. Nothing seems particularly out of place--in fact the texture is appealing--but it stops well short of being inspirational.

On tap at the Half Acre taproom grand opening, served in a pint glass.
Pour: Dark orange with a finger plus of off white sticky head. Pretty thick. Leaves heavy, thick lacing.
Smell: Pretty grassy hops, with some pine and citrus mixed in. Earthy malt profile is interesting.
Taste: Malt forward, big time. Very caramelly, with some pine to balance. Meh.
Mouthfeel: Too much malt makes for a cloying mouthfeel.
Overall: Too balanced of an IPA for my tastes. Fans of two hearted and ambers will find this beer enjoyable.

Thanks Dan! Bomber split with a friend. Burnt amber hue, medium clarity, good head and retention. Fruity and floral aroma, lush and juicy. Tastes good with peach and apricots but has its faults: an odd nuttiness and a watery finish spoil an otherwise flavorful and respectably bitter IPA. Apt body and carbonation... not bad but not great either.

It pours a deep brownish amber with a foamy white head that leaves a bit of intricate lacing.
The smell is fresh for one thing. Definitely sells like summit.
The taste is of summit too. It is acidic and tomatoey, just a small hint of onion/garilic. It is a bit spicy. The malt bill is great in this one. Bitterness is medium.
The hops in this one aren't' my style, but it is a well-crafted brew.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a snifter.
The pour is a hazy, faded caramel color with orange edges and a frothy white cap. The head fades to a film and leaves a few spots of spotty lace down the sides of the glass.
The aroma has some light grapefruit and firm pine hoppiness to go along with a smooth caramel breadiness. The flavor starts sweet with a honey caramel toasted bread flavor, but dries out quickly and moves to a spicy pine hoppiness. There is not a ton of complexity with this beer. It drinks on the fuller side of medium, with
For some reason Half Acre is starting to churn out routine tasting limited releases, and I am starting to get tired of it.

poured from bomber into a pint glass. Pours a dark orange color with a good foamy head
Nice aromas of hops, navel oranges and some citrus tones. Not all that deep and doesn't jump as much as I expected
medium/full bodied with excellent flavors of navel oranges, citrus notes, some florals and hops. Good depth on the flavors, but there is no mid, but a nice finish
This was a bit disappointing. It just came more across as a run of the mill DIPA than a great one
