Shared bomber over a thanksgiving get together. Sort of disappointing to everyone that tried it. I realize that the craft beer bubble is starting to pop, but I expect more than this from a beer that so many people recommend. It tasted most like fermented fruit, and the nose wasn't much better.

Awkwardly sweet and stale hop flavor.

Poured from a bottle into a perfect pint

A- pours a very hazy shade of dark orange with a two finger offwhite head. The head is very puffy, sticks around forever. Lacing is impeccable.

S- getting some citrus, but it's really very mild and underwhelming.

T- it uh, tastes a little off. Earthy and citrus and a little bitter at the same time...don't really like the way the hop profile meshes together at all

M- actually a little thin...weird. Not necessarily a bad thing, though

D- I expected a lot more. Real disappointed in this one. I've had much better DIPAs

Pours a hazy goldenrod color. Just how a DIPA should look. Head stands about a half inch after the pour and receded to a film with rocky patches of bubbles. Head is off white in color and there is lots of visible rising carbonation. Smell is of orange and grapefruit and orange, I also get a bit of pine and some grassiness. This must be pretty fresh. The taste doesn't come through as hoppy as I expected after smelling this, though I guess this is labels as a double pale not a DIPA. The taste starts with bits of grain, and a mild sweetness, then I get some orange and an off flavor I can't name, but is displeasing to me. The finish has a nice bitterness. Mouthfeel is where it should be, light and fun. Overall this is a good beer, but that odd flavor in the middle of the taste is bugging me, not sure whats up with that.

Wanted to like this more--really enjoyed DC the last time I tried it... immediate tip-off was the relatively clear look - though it is slightly hazy. Way less funk on the nose than regular DC... too malty for me, though less than others of this category. I enjoyed this beer but I wouldn't get it again... prefer trillium, dinner, haze, Abner, etc...

Can dated 7/31. So about a month old. Amost no Hop aroma to speak off, has completely faded and is now a total Malt bomb. I would have thought Half Acre could have made something with a little more shelf life than 30 days. Poured half of it out.
