Growler fill fresh from the brewery. Whenever this stuff is available I jump to grab a fill, as they no longer bottle it. $15 for a fill, not bad at all. Poured into a Bell's Tulip glass.
Appearance: A surprisingly dark and opaque reddish-orange with a 2 finger creamy white head, good retention and lacing.
Smell: Very nice aromas of mango, pineapple, kiwi, orange, and other tropical unripe fruits. Floral and pine tones take a backseat. May not be everyone's cup of tea but I really like it.
Taste: Follows along with the nose impressively, citrus and tropical notes with a floral piney finish. Bitterness is pleasing.
Mouthfeel: A little lacking, feels a tad thin and isn't as dry as I'd like it for as bitter as it is. Still good though.
Overall: One of my favorite IPAs ever. I feel really lucky to have access to this, living 10 miles away from the brewery. I fill this whenever it's available and enjoy it immensely. Very under-the-radar offering from Half Acre

Cloudy burnt orange. Beautiful, creamy long lasting cream colored head.
High hop presence reminiscent of candied orange/grapefruit, Light grass, light spearmint. subtle caramel sweetness. Aroma Balance is firmly tilted toward the hops
High smooth hop flavor, resin grapefruit/orange/ tropical fruits, light grass and spearmint. Bready malt background rounded with some caramel notes. Hop bitterness is moderately high, but incredibly smooth. Long dry finish composed of the aforementioned hop characteristics that last seemingly forever on the palate
Medium light body, medium carbonation. Smooth. Crisp.
Incredibly drinkable, it's so light and smooth but just packed with flavor. Really intense hop flavor throughout, but the bitterness is rounded and smooth, never harsh, and is well supported by a great softly sweet malt background. really a pleaser.
