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.

10oz pour, served on tap at the Half Acre Tap Room, poured into a Half Acre stemmed flute. Enjoyed fresh on 10.11.14, review from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a medium amber color, strong hues of reds and oranges, hazy and murky with an off white head, about a finger or so with very nice retention and great lace. The aroma is really piney, dank, earthy, sticky and resinous, quite bitter but with an ample malt backbone. The flavors are in line, sticky pine, dank, earthy, grassy, resinous hoppiness with the same, caramel malt backbone, helps cut the bitterness a bit but the balance is a bit rougher on the tongue. The mouthfeel is nice, sticky is again the best fitting word, full bodied, coats the mouth super well with a dry finish.

Verdict: A very nice DIPA from Half Acre and Three Floyds. The mosaic hop is admittedly one of my least favorite hops, but this was really enjoyable. Piney, bitter, sticky and sappy, the flavor profile is a bit on the heavier and darker side of the spectrum for me, but this hits the spot for a nice hop kick, really nice on tap.

On-tap at Half Acre taproom. Served in a pint.

T- toffee, toasted malts, spices rye? Some grapefruit and citrus with bitter pine punch.

M- medium body and carbonation. Slick and a little dry.

Had this on-tap at Churchkey during the Craft Beer Conference 2013.

A: Poured a pretty, glowing, red-orange color with a soft chill haze and slight pillowy white ring around the brew.

S: Tropical fruit paradise city! Mango skin, papaya, pineapple, and good bit of hop sizzle thrown in as well. Malt backbone? We don't need no stinking malt backbone!

T: Just like the nose only more intense. The finish was quite harsh, but in the same sort of way that Daisy Cutter is. Lots of raw, plant-like, almost peppery spice on the end. Excellent flavor though.

M: More about that bitter finish. I happen to think Daisy Cutter is one of the most unique PAs on the market because of this and I could easily pick it out in a line-up. This bitter finish gave it character to my mind and I thought it was fun to drink.

O: A unique, tropical experience. This was neither an East Coast or West Coast IPA. Is there such thing as a Florida one?
