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!

16 ounce can in a stemmed tulip glass.

Translucent orange color. White fluff, 1F, fades to a film and leaves wavy ring lacing.

Mango and other tropical fruit. Pine, damp and dank. A little citrus and a little malt.

Tropical fruit flavor mix. More mango and a bit of pineapple. A dash of lemon citrus. Lightly caramelized pale malt.

Enough malt to carry the body just past light in feel. Resinous. Hop bitterness and an incredibly dry finish.

Aromatic, flavorful, bitter, and easy drinking - all at 5.2% abv. Nice!

Maybe I had a bad pour but mine was kinda lifeless and dull. Mostly just bitter and thin tasting. Looks good, not much in the aroma end. Feels okay though. I see the high rating, mine must be an aberration.

Canned 4/13/18, consumed 5/5/18

L: Clear honey color with a nice big head that left nice bands of lacing.

S: Terrific, full, danky, piney, and citrusy. If you like danky Simcoe, this had to be one of the best pale ale aromas out.

T: Not as bright, balanced, and terrific as the aroma, but still solid all around. More danky and resiny hop flavors.

F: Medium-light, slightly thin, strong solid bitterness, great lively carbonation.

O: This is the first beer I've ever had from Half Acre, and I'm extremely impressed. Drinks like a solid, flavorful West Coast IPA but it's basically session-level ABV. Really glad to find fresh HA distributed out here, can't want to try more of their offerings.
