Growler filled 2.13.15 and enjoyed today, 2.15.15, from a pint glass

A: Pours a bronzy or copper-ish shade of orange. Substantial head and tons of stick lacing.

S: Fantastic aromas. On the nose -- and you can pick all this up from a foot or two away from the glass -- there are bright aromas of tangerines, candied oranges, pine, and a generally wet dankness.

T: The flavor delivers all that the nose promised, and more: bitter pine is the opening flavor, which shifts into sweet, juicy oranges and tangerines, caramel, toasted (almost nutty?) grain flavors, dank marijuana buds, and orange peels.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and chewy and, when combined with everything that's going on with smell and taste, makes for one of those…sigh...endlessly drinkable beers.

O: Overall, another excellent hoppy offering from Half Acre -- and possibly my favorite beer from them. Just an incredible combo of dank juiciness, sweet citrus fruit, bitter pine and hops, and a toasty, nutty and caramel-y malt profile. Also a cut above Galactic Double Daisy Cutter. One other thing I noted is that I didn't see much of a resemblance to Daisy Cutter, which is a much drier, grassier, and more bitter - but still delicious - beer.

Very smooth. Worth waiting outside in the freezing cold.
