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

S - Mango hop sweetness, pineapple, slight grapefruit, lemon peel. Good sweet nose
T - Sweet mango, pineapple, caramely sweetness, and strawberry. Light pine on the backend that gives it a good bitter presence that lingers on the backend.
M - Medium syrupy beer with a light hop resin in the finish
O - Good IPA from HA with a good fruit presence to it. Nice and sweet IPA with a light bitter presence that balances it out.

Bright ruby orange in appearance with a sticky dank look to it that sure looks appealing.
The wonderfully fruity scent of orange and pineapple are balanced beautifully by a firm spicy malt backbone.
This is marvelously sticky, citrusy, tropical, and slightly spicy.
Mouthfeel has some bite, but goes down smooth in the end.
Overall, I wish I lived closer to Half Acre, because they keep putting out some damn brews!

On tap at the Half Acre taproom in a 13 oz. snifter. Thanks Jay!
This is the 2nd glass i've had of this, and it's pretty impressive.
Color is a bright and saturated orange jewel tone, with a finger of white foam on the surface. Some spotty lace around the edges, forming some spindly arcs here and there. Surface coverage is good, and lasts for the first half of the glass.
Smells overwhelming, very lush and fruity with pulpy grapefruit and mango aromas. Dank.
Flavors are big on the fruit too, grapefruit and mango notes from the dank resiny hops. This is tempered towards the middle with some pale malt and a possible wheaty note towards the end. Medium bodied, a slow sipper to be sure. The abv is somewhat hidden. This almost came out on top during a side-by-side with Galactic DDC, but ultimately they are different and "tied" after revisiting Navaja again.

Thanks stillmatic2232 for the chance to try this one.
A DIPA with Mosaic, Simcoe and Centennial? Sign me the hell up.
Pours an amber orange color, with a one inch head that descends to an oily film on top, with a lot of soapy lacing.
Smells like pine, grapefruit, lemon, and some bitter alcohol.
This one tastes great, but is quite strong. The alcohol is present, but is a good flavor within the beer. There is a strong pine resin bitterness, lots of juicy tropical fruit flavors, a bit of cattiness, some lemon, grapefruit, orange, and mango, and sticky sweet malt behind it all. A big bruiser for sure, not particularly "complex" but incredibly tasty.
This one is medium bodied, with a sticky sweet mouthfeel, and a low amount of carbonation. Pretty drinkable, even with the ABV.
This is quite an excellent hop bomb, with a pretty righteous label too.

4.18/5 rDev -0.7%
A-clear yellow, one finger head with some lacing
S-has malt (Sam toasty ness as the daisy cutter) good deal of citrus hops, very tropical
T- well balanced, starts with a toasty malt. End with slight bitterness and lots of tropical and citrus hops
M-medium bodied, nicely carbonated, some hop resins
O-A well made DIPA, could have used some more bitterness to become elite. Still a well crafted balanced brew.
