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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed on tap at Half Acre. Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark amber color with some yellowish highlights. Soapy lace is left down the glass.

S: Nice burst of tropical fruits. Mainly pineapple and mango with a some mild dankness to it. Light sweetness from the malts. Touch of caramel.

T: The taste is much more vibrant than the nose. Juicy pineapple, dank resin with a touch of bitter pine on the finish. The malt bill is slightly sweet, reminiscent of sugar cookies.

M: Medium high carbonation, a little prickly in nature, with a medium light body. So much flavor packed into this beer.

O: Delicious. I could drink pint upon pint of this. Very well balanced and highly drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Dark reddish brown with a murky haze, and a saturated orange glint in the bottom of the glass. Thin layer of foam on top with a lasting skim on the surface. Delicate ring of dripping lacework around the edges of the glass.

Pungent hop aroma, tangerine citrus, a little catty dankness and resiny greenery around the edges.

Pleasantly bitter with a resinous hop oil character, grapefruit zest and bitter fruit flesh. Light feel but approaching medium bodied, pretty smooth and well carbed. Resiny dry aftertaste. Anicca is a really nice drinker, hope they can secure the Mosaic to keep this in regular rotation.

4.31/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives a clear amber orange with a perfect finger and a half of frothy and bubbly tan foam.

Smell: This one hits hard on the nose. Lots of sharp, tropical fruit notes (mostly pineapple and tangerine). A little sour funk on the end. Fairly pungent, in the best sense of the word.

Taste: The taste follows the nose almost exactly but hits even harder. Sweet and sharp citrus fruit snap, crackle and pop all over your tongue. There's maybe a touch of pine and caramel but its overcome by the sweet, tangy, bitter, and sour Mosaic hops that this beer was singly brewed with.

Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, crisp and effervescent. Fairly light-bodied.

Overall, this was a really interesting collaboration beer from two of the best breweries in the Midwest. It might simply be the power of suggestion but I swore I could taste a little bit of each brewery's trademark flavors. Really the best of both worlds here. This uber-refreshing beer packs a big, tangy citrus wallop that doesn't taste altogether different than a mouthful of Pop Rocks. With that said, this beer was almost too intensely tart and carbonated. After two pints my tongue was down for the count. Still, this is hugely flavorful beer and you've got to love that.
