Beautiful gold color with light head, minimal lacing and plenty of tiny bubbles from the carbonation continually striving to reach the top. Smell is on the light side, and comes across with hop resin and citrus. Light taste with an amazing balance of hop bitterness, grapefruit rind and light malt. Really well balanced !!!!. Feels great going down with just the right amount of carbonation; refreshing!!. Light hop bitterness aftertatste. Nice job on this one. Thanks to FFF Junkie for this beer!!!

Canned first week of July, picked up directly from Half Acre. Drank 10.17.14. Poured into a 16oz Shaker.

One of my absolute favorite APAs, one which I have been drinking since Half Acre first introduced it years ago. Bought it but didn't review it last time I was in Chicago, but luckily when I visited again earlier this month my previous purchase was still waiting for me.

A: Pours a slightly hazy raw honey color, 1.5 fingers of pure white head...very airy and soapy, leaves sticky lacing as the head fades away completely, leaving only small traces of a collar.

S: Fresh cut grass... bordering on fresh cut wildflowers, lemon zest, grapefruit, papaya, biscuity malt, piney hops.

T: Raw. Piney hops, acidic grapefruit, papaya, ripe mango, floral, dry sweet malt... remarkably easy to enjoy and appreciate.

M: Refreshing on the tongue, herbal, clean, light and sessionable, resinous finish. This will never burn you out.

0: Works anytime, anywhere. Tame enough to session, yet bold enough to enjoy on mellow days. Love it.
