Hazy golden orange with an inch of white head and sticky lacing. It has a nice contiuous effervescent stream of carbonation.

Smells of tropical fruit, peach, and pine. The malt is bready and brown sugar sweet It's very aromatic.

It has a pretty good balance of hop and malt, bitter and sweet. The pine is a bit more resinous than in the smell. Orange and peach. It has a sweet backing from the malt. The finish has a slight touch of dish soap and is very bitter.

Good carbonation, but the mouthfeel has an astringency that dries out my tongue. Medium body.

This is a re-review and I scored it out much higher than when I had it from the bottle. At least from my notes, the flavor and aroma were more pronouncedthis time around.

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
