Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Again, our side has been slit and although we clutch to keep them in, the bitter juices of an ancient elixir gush to the floor.

As it's written, the dark, long and narrow Canyon calls to many. Men carry the light into darkness, and while most fall forever into the shadows, a fine few walk tall through the Canyon and live as Heroes.

Canyon Of Heroes India Pale Ale is our task and your courage.

Barely contained by its surroundings, Canyon Of Heroes screams at your senses and pushes into you with the grace of a blade.

Served in a large wine glass.

This thing just sounds like a strangely-named stage of a cheap RPG. Regardless, it pours a mostly clear sunrise straw-amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light leek, funky lemon zest, lightly-misty greens, and some very light sweet biscuit in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, with a dearth of leek (thankfully) and an emphasis on the greenery over all else. It works here. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a very nice IPA, better than the other, more half-hearted offerings from Half Acre lately (all my opinion, clearly).

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer has a hazy aged orange body with a lumpy beige thin head and bubbles that pop off at the base.

S- The dry papery green hops have a bigger juicy orange hop aroma in the finish.

T- The fruity and citrus pith hops are supported by some nice malt notes that add a bit of sweetness in the finish. There is an orange rind hop pungency that lingers in the aftertaste and grows a bit along with the sweetness as it opens.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a crisp fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- This beer has a fresh crisp hop flavor with good malt support. A nice solid IPA that is big but very drinkable.

Great offering from half acre - fresh bottle from brewery.

A: Gorgeous opaque bright orange/yellow - like grapefruit juice. Nice foamy white head, does not quite coat the glass entirely.

S: Really nice - very interesting blend of tropical hop nuances. Big sweet orange, mango and grapefruit, some pineapple astringency. Some malty breadiness. Not very powerful, but really nice.

T: Considering the tropical sweet aromatics it is surprisingly bitter, in a great way. Less complex than the nose - bitter grapefruit, orange zest, slight pine and resin.

P: Smooth, medium body.

O: Really surprised - one of the more interesting single IPA's I've had. There isn't any in there, but I sense galaxy hops, which is always a good thing.

A - Hazy golden brown with small white head

S - Orange with light zest to it. Light pine and slight orange juice.

T - Bitter pine up front with light grapefruit and orange with light orange soda. Slight earthy and floral component to it

M - Slight carbonation. Body is slightly watery and light

O - Decent IPA overall. Worth a try but not their best offering
