4.49/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pour straw golden in color with a slight haze and orange hue. Head is about one finger and has good retention.

Smell is great. Lots of tropical fruit aromas of mango pineapple and stone fruit before a nice grainy malt aroma comes in that smells nicely balance. A little bit of pine is also present but the tropical fruit hops are the main show.

Taste is great and follows the nose. Loads of tropical fruit hops are forward with big juicy flavors of mango pineapple and grapefruit. Minor hoppy bitterness is minuscule in comparison to the immense hoppy oils and resin with slight flavors of herbs and pine. Grainy malt balances the hops with a mild sweetness and cracker like malt.

Mouthfeel is great. Huge amounts of hop oils and sticky resin give this a big body. Mild carbonation cuts the hops and a mild bitterness comes right before a somewhat dry finish.

Serving type: bottle

3.85/5  rDev -9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy copper capped by a decent head that does an even better job lacing

Smell: Tropical fruit with papaya, lychee and a hint of tangerine

Taste: Opens with a tropical fruit cocktail flavor filled with all the tones detected on the nose; the bitterness never really builds to the extent I expected but the flavors linger and bring on a bit of alcohol in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation and some warmth in the gullet

Overall: Overall, I was expecting a bit more, particularly from Half Acre; still, an enjoyable beer even though it never scales the peaks

Serving type: on-tap

Appearance - light orange yellow color. any head that formed quickly left

Smell - Sweet Citrus flavor for sure. Lots and lots of grapefruit. As this warmed up I got much more malty balance

Taste - Wow what a lovely balance of grapefruit and malts

Mouthfeel - very very smooth and easy to drink

Overall - Sure glad I got one of these in a trade. Would drink again any time
