look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 16oz can into glass. Canned on date is stamped '06/25/18' (bottom of can).
Clear, pale gold colored body. Two finger white, pillowy head, which stays around. Leaves webs of lacing.
Floral hops dominate the aroma.
Taste has both floral and sweeter citrus hops (orange and papaya). A little earthy. Malts have to be there to back this up.
Thin to medium mouth feel. Good carbonation. A little stinging on the tongue.
Quite tasty and flavorful for a lower alcohol level. Pleasant in all ways, but not much more.

Poured from a 16oz can with a canned on date of 6/20/18; into a Sam Adams perfect pint.
Appearance- gold, almost orange with swirling champagne bubbles that hold a thick, soapy, white head; lacing is strong!
Smell - pine and floral hops and a subtle hint of citrus.
Taste - hops are definitely pine and earth with a bit of a cracker malt backing.
Feel - balanced and light; easy drinking and traditional; bitter finish gives this more of a balanced IPA feel!
Overall- very nice, balanced APA, for sure, however, my palate tends to prefer more fruit forward vs pine and earth dominant.

Very good beer, probably should be marketed as an IPA not a pale ale. The GOP character is incredible, it's grassy, floral and slightly citrusy without any one component dominating the others. Very drinkable and refreshing, I will be buying this any time I can.

Draft at Lucky’s. Medium gold, small ring of head. Aroma leads with the grains. Hops follow, but muted. Taste is grassy, mildly sweet, a bit of hops on the back. I was expecting this to be bigger.

Appearance: Clean amber with a huge off-white head and lovely lace.

Aroma: Super fruity tropical goodness. Yes, please.

Taste: Rich and balanced, with tons of fruit and floral hops yet plenty of malts to balance. Definitely an amped-up American pale ale. Superb and one I’d love to revisit again.

First had on at the Gabby Goat, Effingham, Illinois, poured from pint can into tumbler. My first beer from Half Acre (naturally), this is a very drinkable, interesting take on the APA.

This is an outstanding beer. One of my favorites that I keep going back to. I understand the name because it has a wonderful floral quality to it. Extremely well balanced with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Half Acre does beer right!

It's too bad this beer isn't called Bush. Then everyone would say, I love Bush! Instead, it's called Daisy Cutter and nothing really rhymes with that. But, I do like the name and this was a very good beer! The colour is more a light amber/caramel than golden and not very hazy. The hop aroma is subtle as is the taste. You will definitely pick up on the Citra. I wasn't aware of Half Acre until I tried this beer. They are on my radar now. Well done Chicago!
