Notes/Commercial Description:
This is the first time we've brought this out of its scabbard. We've never released a Double IPA - and this will make its debut at our 5th Anniversary Party on 5/17. Attacking your ability to make good choices, this bully quickly becomes your best friend.

3.85/5  rDev -8.8%
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

4.36/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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
