A - Golden yellow - hazy with a big fluffy white head.

S - Big citrus hop aroma, fruity, rind, piney, some malts.

T - Agressively hopped, citrus, hop resin, bread dough, biscuity, balanced nicely with malts. Medium bodied and creamy mouth feel.

O - Solid APA from Half Acre - I would definitely get this again.

Notes - scored this from my wifes trip to Schaumburg.

Appearance: This beer is a beautiful golden color with hints of Amber. The head is thick and takes a while to dissipate.

Aroma: Daisy Cutter has a very floral aroma with a slight sweetness. It smells fresh and well balanced.

Taste: This APA is well balanced with a lighter mouthfeel. The hops are evident. The floral notes are complemented by a little sweetness from the malt. It finishes with a slight bitterness and a tad try.

Overall: It is a great example of an APA. A great beer to sip on and enjoy.

Purchased these tall boys at Beer Temple in Chicago - stashed away in checked luggage back home! Super fresh - a few days in the can when I bought them.
Poured a copper golden with not much head into pint glass. Look is a bit disappointing, but has some lingering lacing to boost the points for me. Aromas are nice west coast hop, a bit of malts - more rye than anything maybe? something sort of "spicey".
really nice flavor - again west coast bitter hops, what seems to be rye malts, and a very mild yeast character. Well balanced, easy drinker, slightly bready, slightly bitter...just an all around great pale ale. Id buy often if it was available to me on a regular basis.
