From BeerAdvocate Magazine #87 (Apr 2014):

Intense, Bitter, Boozy, Brash

Appropriately named after a folding Spanish fighting blade Navaja cuts deep with its hop sharpness. Bitterness is unrelenting with layers of hop flavor that makes for a longer finish. Warmth from the alcohol reminds us sip to sip that this is truly a DIPA. Big Cheers to Half Acre!

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. (428 characters)

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 (375 characters)

Great looking bright hazy beer. Very crisp, fresh tropical juicy hops asserting out the glass. Has a midwest-eastcoast fusion of style, very fresh and clean bright tropical favors that is juicier and more astringent. A great Chicago IPA (239 characters)

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 good brews! (424 characters)
