Enjoyed one of these last night thanks to my man totalbangover, who threw this bomber in as an extra...and what an extra it was! He was raving about this beer as all he drank while at the HA taproom and I can see/taste why.
Bomber poured into a Deschutes snifter. Quarter to half inch of nice white head and very fragrant! Sweet citrus and hoppy!
First sip was excellent and flavor was just as fine as the aroma...citrus ad the perfect amount of hoppiness.
As the level in my glass lowered, everything about this sweet nectar stayed the same...flavorful and sweet to the nose and good to the last drop!
Really a very enjoyable beer and given the limited quantities (this was procured by my buddy as from the HA employee stash) and how fun it was to drink, I'm very impressed!

Acquired via trade
Perhaps the best IPA from the Midwest I've had to date. I wasn't expecting much, after being a touch disappointed with Anicca and never really falling in love with Three Floyds's hoppy beers, but this was something different entirely. Fantastic, juicy, ripe citrus notes, fairly big bitterness (but enough that it hampered the drinkability), mild malt backbone, and a little bit of resin/pine. Fantastic, and quite the surprise. Looking back on it, I should have known better. Half Acre does fantastic hoppy beers. Daisy Cutter and it's brothers are all fantastic, as was this one.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy and murky orange. Small white head. Thin collar.
Smell - Huge citra hop. Bright orange. Some lemon. A little bit of sweetness.
Taste - Tons of orange hops. Sweet tropical fruits. Some sweet malts, but very minimal. The faintest of grainy textures.
Mouthfeel - A little sweet. Medium body. Minimal bitterness.
Overall - This is really impressive. Delicious IPA.

22oz bomber from jermy in the recent pipeworks box. This was an afterthought on the trade "hey, you want me to add a God Hates Astronauts?" Yes. And thanks.
Murky copper color, clean billowing white topper that left a quantity of meringue-like dollops. A big floral and citrus hop aroma with very little pine or dank. A solid caramel backbone that shows up more in the taste.
Nicely balanced IPA that has a good burst of citrus up-front which is complemented by the light malt notes at the end. This does have a nice, crisp finish with only the faintest trace of lemon zest as an aftertaste.
Quite good. Wish this would make it into the regular rotation and find itself in 16oz cans alongside Daisy Cutter....

Hazy saturated orange, lazy rising carb trails, an initial finger of dense white foam. Lasting skim and a frothy collar around the edges. Spindly webs of lace in the glass.
Pungently fruity and dank hop aromas, mango, grapefruit, nectarine, sandalwood.
Citrus forward with tropical hop character, all the aforementioned fruits play across the palate. A dry bitter finish with a little bit of wheat and pale malt in the middle. A little less intense than the nose. Light bodied but substantial, and pretty easy to drink. Not too far off from other solid IPA's like Shewolf and Annica, it's a very drinkable fruit-forward hop bomb.

Thanks to Robbie for this bottle!
Poured in to Half Acre pint glass.
A - Poured a cloudy opaque bright orange with a thin layer of white head.
S - Bright citrus and tropical fruit aromas dominate the nose. Tangerine, peach, pineapple and papaya notes specifically come through. A slight honey malt sweetness is also present.
T - Crisp bitterness up front that is nicely balanced by a caramel sweetness that provides a perfect malt backbone for the hop base while still letting the hops shine. Fresh tangerine, pineapple, mango and peach notes are present along with a slight pine presence.
M - Medium body. Some nice sticky hop oils. Light carbonation.
