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.

Reviewing Anicca, a collaboration IPA brewed by Three Floyds Brewing Company (Munster, Indiana) and Half Acre Brewing Company (Chicago, Illinois).

Score: 95

Tap pour served in a Half Acre snifter-tulip hybrid glass and enjoyed on 03/01/13. Review is from iPhone notes

Appearance: Bourbon colored body. Served with one finger of cream colored head that settles to a thin foggy coating. Awesome lacing and retention. 5/5

Smell: Dank hops, tangerine, melon, peach and apricot. Nice tropical citrus nose. Pineapple juice and pine too. Perfectly balanced, nice juiciness and hoppiness. A little fruity too. 4.75/5

Taste: Tastes just like it smells but with a heavier malt-orientation and less "bitting hoppiness" than anticipated from nose. Earthy spice too, a little resinous. Nice bitter citrus finish after the swallow. Smoother drinking than anticipated, but I was hoping for more of a in-your-face hop bomb from the nose. Tasty enough to overcome my expectation disappointment. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, low carbonation. Frankly, I think this brew is slightly under-carbonated. Nice zesty citrus which is bitter and juicy. Finishes a little dry. 4/5

Overall: An excellent IPA from two hop masters. Well worth the trip to the Half Acre tap room to try this taproom only release.

Cost: $6 for a 16 oz snifter pour. (1,326 characters)

4.6/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Murky mahogany with half finger light tan head.

Aroma: Peach, apricot, and grapefruit. Little herbal and pine. Some toasted breadiness.

Taste: Peach, apricot, and berries. Little tangerine, pineapple and grapefruit. Some pine and herbals. Slightly sweet and light toffee toasted bready malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium- light with medium carbonation. Slight dry finish. Some hops bitterness that lingers for a short time.

Overall: A really nice IPA. Tastes a little similar to Space. But I like this better. I certainly would have it again. (549 characters)
