Poured from 16 oz. can into frosty pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a 1/2 inch white head. Smells juicy and citrusy. Tastes juicy and amazingly full-flavored for a lower abv beer, darn near a perfect session pale ale. Well done!

16oz cann PKGD 04/13/17 "It's a reptile house"
A - frothy ivory head caps a hazy and nearly opaque tangerine colored ale
S - bitter grapefruit and orange rind, a bit tropical with some pine
T - zesty citrus: grapefruit & orange; mango, pineapple, and passion fruit, nutty grain, yeast
M - light-to-medium body, resinous with a bitter and dry finish
O - nice flavors and quite refreshing with a lower ABV making it easy to have more than one. I'd get it again if thr price was right, otherwise I prefer their Daisy Cutter to this one.

To have this beer all summer would be amazing.... Extremely crisp and refreshing, the lower ABV is surprising as it tastes like a bigger beer... Citrusy flavors dominate... Incredible! Very very well done...

Half Acre Tuna Pale Ale draft sampled at a Long Island, NY, gastropub in June, 2017.

This is a solid pale ale with a hop-forward flavor tending toward the modern spicy/flowery character and light amber color. The flavor is in line with (possibly better than most of) the microbrewed pale ales and IPAc. It has a modest alcohol content.
