Pours golden, copper in color with a fair amount of head and lacing. Smells much like other half-acre IPA's: earthy melon and citrus spice with a sweet, bubble gum maltiness. Taste follows the nose quite well; spicy hops and melon up front, climaxing to a bitter, orange rind flavor with a husky, maltiness that lingers on the tongue. Mouthfeel is a little thin; solid carbonation but not much chewiness. Finishes dry. Another solid brew from half-acre, but nothing special and a touch on the acidic side.

Just opened my last Now and Then IPA this afternoon. Very sad about it too because this is one of my absolute favorites from HA!! Has that signature smell but the taste is just out of this world. Can't wait until they release it again!!!!

From can into snifter. Hazy appearance. Tropical taste. Not so bitter and dry like typical Half-Acre IPA.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 16 oz can on July 22, 2017. Canned on 07/17/17. Brewed with an English ale yeast and a touch of lactose, on 2-row, Golden Promise, Vienna and Flaked Oats, before a flush of Equinox dust and hits of Citra, Simcoe and Comet. Recommended.

L: An orange-ish gold color.
S: Tropical/citrus
T: Similar to the smell, but even more enhanced. I had a 4-pack, and it seemed with about a week on it, it was just perfect!
F: Not chewy, but full-bodied and appropriate for an IPA.
O: Probably my favorite IPA from Half Acre.

Orange rind and tropical citrus. Some resin. Really a great offering from Half Acre. I'm hoping this gets a wide release as I'd buy this often. Great hop flavor, good malty backbone and hop burps.
