BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Half Acre Beer Company
Illinois, United States
halfacrebeer.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Heyoka IPA and Senita IPA

GoneAway is a western charged firecracker. We conjured the classics and then laid them on a bed of pale malt. This India Pale Ale shoots straight to the bitter edge before falling into a mellow haze. Deep gold and ready to travel into the distance.

Poured from 16 oz. can into a Schlafly tulip. Pours a hazy golden orange - just about perfect as far as single IPA's go. About 1/2 inch foamy white head that leaves some clingy foamy lacing. Great juicy hop taste and very drinkable for 7%. This falls into the "one of the best IPA's I had never heard of" category, until generously receiving a can from my brother.

Can poured into a Russian River Brewing Co nonic pint glass

A: Pours slightly hazy golden amber with a creamy off white head that hangs around and leaves some thick lacing.

S: Sweet tropical fruit, a touch of melon, followed by bright citrus zest, resinous pine, biscuity malt, and a little honey sweetness.

T: Tropical fruit, guava, mango, a hint of melon, citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, resinous pine, slight dank herbal notes, biscuity malt, and a touch of honey sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, pretty soft on the palate with a nice slap of bitterness on the finish.

O: Glad I grabbed a can to try when I got the chance. Wish it was a little fresher, but the bones of it are still there and are quite tasty.

Hazy pale gold with three fingers of white foamy head that lasts about ten minutes. Rings of medium bubble lace.
Smell is slightly dank and citrus with cracker malts.
Taste is sweet citrus lemon orange with plenty of malt support.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with ample carbonation. Finish is very mildly dry and bitter sweet.
Overall a tasty well crafted East Coast IPA. Easy drinking and tasty.

Interesting IPA - very light, almost salty and gose like qualities - not bitter, not hoppy, but curiously twisted. Prickly. Oakland, April 2017.

Semi cloudy, pale, golden orange. Foamy head with streak lacing. Aroma is light tropical fruit and melon. Citrus and floral notes. Flavor is a bitter hops bite up front, followed by some grapefruit and herbs. Cracker malt backbone. A bit thin and watery in the finish, but still good overall.
