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.

Orange color and clear. Medium body feel. Light citris smell and no over welling. Nice and clean finish.
