This is truly a world-class DIPA. Half Acre killed the hop/malt balance and effectively hides the hot 8% ABV without over-flavoring the beer. Hate the price (4-pack for $14) but love the beer!

Amber orange in color, mostly opaque. Bright white foam with solid retention. Aroma is big, classic hop profile. Pine, resin, citrus, some tropical fruit, slightly grassy/floral. The taste follows exactly with big pine and resin. The same notes of tropical fruit, grass, and floral also dance in the background. Body is medium with a moderate carbonation, with a dry and bitter finish. A big, classic DIPA. Quite good.

Honey color appearance, pine and lemon nose, same for taste with some honey and stickiness mouthfeel. Not a crazy delicious upgrade on daisy cutter but an upgrade nonetheless. Solid and very drinkable offering from Half Acre. Not sure I'll snag too much more in the future with its $15 4pack price tag.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass and a large patch of bubbles on the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy and piney hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having initial flavors of orange and grapefruit citrus and finishing with pine, along with some hints of alcohol.
M: It feels a touch more than medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a very similar flavor profile to the regular Daisy Cutter, except that there are some hints of alcohol in the taste.

Serving type: can

Copper colored with excellent clarity. There's a fingernail of creamy off white on top. Heavy lacing is present. There's an abundance of floral mosaic hops in the nose. I'm tasting just slightly more mosaic hops than I had found in the base version and just slightly more malt, but you can tell there's a bit more booze in the mix. The mouth is resinous, lightly chewy, and a touch chalky.
