16 oz. can poured vigorously into a Half Acre pint glass.
Pours a sunny yellow/straw with a hop haze but otherwise clear. Nice tall head and great retention. Looks like a Belgian witbier. An impressive sheet of lacing coats the glass
Smell is out of this world. Definitely a good IPA hop smell with some grapefruit but also a different smell, maybe the lager yeast? Similar to Vallejo. Whatever it is, it's interesting and inviting.
The first sip brings the hops and a lager bite. Crisp clean but so much flavor for a lager beer. Really interesting and unique. It's a flavor that is hard to describe. You have the nice fruity hops with a lasting bitterness that combines with an earthy flavor and a long finish. Great balance of malt backing the very strong hops that shine through.
The mouthfeel is medium/full and the brew is crisp and clean. Moderate carbonation is just right.
I wouldn't change a thing with this experiment. I hope they can revisit this on occasion as it is definitely one to seek out. A truly unique creation and one of my favorite collaboration beers to date. Half Acre getting better and better.

Pours a pale clear yellow orange with a light haze. Lots of drippy lacing and a frothy collar around the edges of the glass. Lasting skim on the surface.
Pungent and hoppy, getting a Nelson Sauvin sweet lemon tea note, a fistful of resiny greenery, vague sandalwood.
Resiny bitter hops, orange peel, citric and oily hop vibes. A vague fruity sweetness flashes quickly before segueing into a long resiny bitterness in the middle and lingering into the aftertaste. Some trace lager yeast character. Light bodied and super hoppy. Overall very drinkable considering the abv. Paired well with Rutger Hauer in Blind Fury.
