Notes/Commercial Description:
OK warriors, we're co-hosting a beer that's to be delivered from our brew deck to your ceremonial chalice. We've again brewed with our cohorts at Three Floyds Brewing Co and have given birth to the sludge of angels, Anicca India Pale. Anicca IPA is single hopped snake juice showcasing the Mosaic hop, a plant throwing off a cornucopia of fruit flavors. Bitter sweet and full of force, this IPA bends your brain into a tropical storm of writhing glory. As the philosophy explains, Anicca will come and go, so come sip this before all is gone.

Draft and cask only at the Half Acre Tap Room.

Yummy! Light floral smell. Smooth balanced flavor with a medium hoppy bitter finish. Very easy to drink.

here is Joe1510's review:

22oz Bomber

Big thanks to both Matt and Mark for grabbing me a bottle of this nectar. Cheers, fellas! Anicca is ruby red and absolutely glows when around any amount of light. A good amount of haze clouds up the body while an off white head, bordering on yellow, sits atop like a crown. The foam grows immediately dense and frothy leaving big, fat clumpy lacing down the glass.

Mosaic brings fistfuls of fruit to the party. Tangerine and apricot, pineapple and papaya, underripe berries, grapefruit and orange, this beer has it all and every swirl of the glass brings a different facet. The malt base is soft and remains in the background with a neutral sugar cookie sweetness. This beer is all about a Mosaic showcase.

Each and every drink of Anicca has the ability to slightly change, just like the nose suggested. Leathery apricot gets it going with tangerine close behind. The underripe berries pick up in the middle along with grapefruit and orange. The tropicals really pop on the backend with pineapple in the forefront and papaya to clean it all up. A simple sugar cookie maltiness lays the base. There are even undercurrents of pine sap here and there. Delicious!

A moderately weighted body combined with a soft but active carbonation make for a luxurious body. It's light enough that I'm drinking far faster than I should and the bitterness eventually reaches just below moderate. Anicca is ridiculously easy to put away.

Last years bottles were from Three Floyds and this years were from Half Acre. Both were fantastic. Not often do you come across IPAs with this much juiciness and when you do you take notice. An excellent beer!
