3.93/5 rDev -4.4%
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Pale orange body. Small white head. Settles to a thin collar.
Smell - Very pungent. Heavy grapefruit. Some grassy and herbal notes. Cracker malt.
Taste - Grapefruit. More of an emphasis on the pine and herbal hops. A hint of doughy sweet malts, but again it's mostly cracker. Intensely bitter. Lingering pithy grapefruit hop flavor.
Mouthfeel - Extremely bitter. Medium body.
Overall - Well, it's advertised as brash, and it is. Harsh bitterness, but I don't mind it.

4.1/5 rDev -0.2%
Appearance is very light yellow and slightly cloudy, looks more like a wheat ale.
Smell is very fruity and vibrant, greatly inviting.
After getting big whifs of fruit and hops in the nose, there is not much to speak about after that. Taste does not complement the smell of this brew. Slight citrus and dull hops, boring.
Mouthfeel is nothing to write home about, just bland.
Overall this is a tasty beverage, but not worth the $10 price tag or pain in the ass obtaining it.

Poured into a tumbler glass, a perfect two fingers width of creamy foam settles and sits on the surface for a good while, and an ever present skim on the surface that lasted for the duration of the glass. Sea spray lace patterns wedged in between concentric rings of foam that materialize after each sip.
Tangerine, citrus forward with some light pale malt in the middle. Woody hop element with some sweet herbals that reminded me of tarragon.
Citrus peel, punchy bitter lemon and grapefruit peels. Smooth feel, moderate bitterness, ample hop character. Light bodied, about on par with Daisy Cutter, maybe a little softer. Honey in the aftertaste. If this was year round instead of Daisy Cutter it would be a new staple beer. Although it's yet another riff on Half Acre's many similar IPA variations, it's an excellent one that is seemingly flawless overall and extremely drinkable.
