Notes/Commercial Description:
Vallejo, an India Pale Ale pulled from the rocky cliffs of your mind. Both Space and Vallejo are pure examples true-to-form of hop thrashers. Hoppy beers are as common as dirty socks. Some may hear the vinyl skipping, but for us hops are the meat of the rhythm that brought us to the show. Hoisting pints of seminal hop screamers from brewers turning out beers with rough tools is what holds our aim and keeps us honest. We salute refinement, but rally around the indulgence of the beast that brought us to the table. Space & Vallejo are raw, naked examples of micro built beers that stick to your ribs.

4.1/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy honey color with a full rocky cap.

A tart, spicy fresh hop aroma consisting of apricot, green apple, and grapefruit with some light pine.

The taste is a full on hop assault. Fruity at the start turning to intense bitterness for hop heads only. Grapefruit pith and sour apple with light cracker and biscuit malt fully highlighting the hops.

A medium body and medium carbonation is right on target for this style. Slick and oily hop resin coats the tongue.

A nice counterpoint to the smooth, malty and balanced "Space" (released last week anticipating the Grand opening of their beautiful new taproom). I am psyched to sit and sample some fresh brews whenever the taproom debuts. Great job Half Acre and congratulations to you for a great effort to upgrade the entire brewery from store to brewhouse and finally the taproom! You are poised to offer beer to Chicagoland (I hope).

Serving type: growler

On draft from a pint glass at the brewery

Grapefruity tropical citrus on the nose and palate with a hint of pine that finishes hoppy but well balanced with great mouth feel overall a great IPA that I cannot wait to get more of. My favorite brew from Half Acre and I have tried a fair amount of their beer.

Serving type: on-tap
