I tried this on tap at Hunger N Thirst, enjoyed chilled from a snifter.

The color is golden with slight peachy hue and thick white head with fine bead, lace clings. The smell is very aromatic with hop aromas that are mostly tropical/citrus with grapefruit in the smell with mild herbal element. The feel is great, moderately high in bitterness and resinous texture with subtle malt sweetness low alcohol in the feel with a mostly dry finish.

The taste is great with the majority of the flavor coming from the hops yet a slight malt sweetness is there to support the bitterness and keep from being completely unbalanced yet the taste of citrus/herbal hops is robust in this. I really enjoyed this and could in consecutive samples easily -a great Imperial IPA

Another wonderful, hoppy IPA from Half Acre. Served on draft at the brewery. A huge amount of citrus hops paired with a big malt backbone. Though this was very good, I was expecting a little better.

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.

My neighbor shared this with me over dinner last night....awesome pork chops by the way....it poured a slightly hazy orangish with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had sweet tones mixed with bitter citrus. The taste was a sweet malt base and some hint of grapefruit. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall I don't think it's as good as the original and I don't think it's as good as other DIPAs that are out there. Nevertheless it is a decent beer and certainly worth a try.
