Pours a golden-yellow, producing an a huge frothy head. Lacing sticking to the glass as the head dissipates. On the nose a nice floral hop bill, some grapefruit; citrus rind, grassy notes. Nice dry, crisp beer. Easy drinking; not too watery but definitely a session drinker. Tastes of that floral, grassy hops mentioned in the nose. Not much bitterness at all, touch of sweet grains on the end balancing the hop notes. Very good beer, definitely recommend. Drinks easy.

Pours a bright yellow gold with some suspended solids, a foamy white head that caps and holds, and bonus points for the great lacing. Smells of grapefruit, rind, citrus, pine and a bit floral. Flavor definitely reminds me of the three C's with piney and grapefruit goodness taking center stage followed by a fresh crackery grain sweetness supporting it. Good bitterness, but relatively balanced, nice and crisp dry finish, medium carbonation and very easy to drink. Overall, this is a wonderful Extra Pale Ale. Loving the extra-ness of it! Cheers!

This is a dry, crisp, refreshing beer. Lower alcohol content than many other beers of the same quality and taste. My wife LOVES it (a BIG plus). We highly recommend this as a go to beer. Unbeatable thirst quencher!! Good job Half Acre!
