Half Acre Beer Company
Illinois, United States

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.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of gooseberries are present in the nose along with hints of grapefruit.
T: The taste has juicy flavors of gooseberries and melons along with hints of grapefruit in the finish. Only a slight amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer goes down very easily and seems like a toned-down version of a New England-style IPA—it's hardly bitter and somewhat "juicy" but not necessarily bursting with lots of juicy hop flavors.

Pours a little murky yellow color with a thick white head on top of it. Gives off a citrusy and pine smell with a hint of hops. Taste is straight up hoppy with notes of citrus.

This is a really solid IPA. The smell has pine and citrus with a touch of some more tropical fruits. The taste is balanced and well rounded with solid bitterness. yb

Hazy orange in body with white head that crumbles to an island. Aroma of bubblegum, grass, mint, fruit nectar. Tastes of grass, pine, mint, grains, honey, citrus and assorted fruits. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

From a 16 ounce can into one of those shapely Sam Adams glasses. Pale amber body, white head and decent lacing on the glass. Smells bright and fresh, taste delivers on the scent. Maybe comes off as a little boozy for something 7%? For me, a good introduction to a brewery.

Canned 1 month ago.

Pours golden-yellow with a frothy white head and lasting lacing.

The nose is passion fruit, crackery malt, and peppery hops.

The taste is grapefruit, lemon peel, and pine. More on the West Coast end of the spectrum, but there are hints of passion fruit that keep things interesting. The mouthfeel is medium. The finish is dry with some lingering bitterness. Very slight alcohol as it approaches room temperature.

Overall, very good.
