This is one of my favorite beers, hands down. While not the healthiest choice, I can definitely finish a four pack easily after a long day at work. This beer is nicely balanced, super drinkable, a slightly sweet after finish and, good mouth feel. For whatever reason, cold sweet milkiness comes to mind. I thoroughly enjoy this beer and it will always be my go to when I'm looking for a reliable beer.

This is a beer for everyone. Smells fresh, light mouthful, with a subtle resin finish. You could do way worse than a cooler full of these tallboys.

Golden orange color with a thick thin head with decent retention.
Nice aroma with notes of pine, biscuit malt sweetness, mango and oranges.
Flavor with notes of piney and floral hops, mild mango, green resin, grapefruit citrusy and some peaches. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Very refreshing and dry APA with bright piney, citrus green and floral clean notes. The type to have in your fridge from time to time.

Hurray! Finally we find a straight-up pale ale with flavor, and the right amount of hops-to-malt. Very nice!!

Clear orange with a chill haze and a pillowy white head.
The aroma is citrus and juicy, candied fruit and floral.
Taste is juicy and tropical with a slight bitter and a lingering taste of grapefruit.
Mouthfeel is medium and we'll carbonated.
A super clean, crisp and drinkable pale ale.

16oz canned 8/16/18 (65 days ago) poured into a willibecher glass at fridge temp 5.2% ABV. The beer pours slightly hazy orange amber in color with off white head. The head recedes to a thick ring and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is earthy mixed fruit. The taste is more earthy, herbal citrus. There is a hint of pale malt at the beginning, then the bitterness hits and persists after the swallow. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall, very good. Not my favorite flavor profile, but well made and enjoyable.

A bright, light floral pale with immense drinkability. Hop notes are bright and grassy, with a nice bitter finish. And old school pale, that stands the test of time. Glad to finally try it! Excellently brewed beer. HalfAcre always impresses me.

It's perfectly balanced but with a very unique taste. Usually the unique brews heavily favor a sweet, hoppy, dry flavor etc... but the daisy cutter found a way to be a classic pale ale but also be distinct. Add it to the favorites.

Four pack copped from Bottle King in Morris Plains. Pours a golden, effervescent hue with minimal frothing. Faint aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.
