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.

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.

Bright golden body with a cream colored head that is about a finger wide. Smell jumps out of the glass. Dank with citrus rind meets ditchweed sort of a smell. The mouthfeel is slick and resinous. Truly a west coast style IPA and maybe the best version of the style I've had from Chicagoland. The taste borders bitterness and sweetness with huge grapefruit juice, pineapple, and grass. The finish is slick and a little more bitter than the front end. I wish I would have bought more of these. Really a delicious IPA and as good as I've had from the local market outside of Three Floyd's.
