i liked space better than their other, lighter, more tropical ipa. this one is pretty awesome, with some red color to it and quite a bit more body than the other one. the head is tall and just off white, sticking high to the sides of the glass. citra hops or some similar varietal seem do be the dominant hop in this one, fruity and a little tangy and really forward. the malt is a little sweet for me in the taste, my only real critique, but i like what it adds in terms of depth and body, and its not like so many over balanced hoppy beers, its dosed correctly. i get a little more hop aromatic than flavor in this, suggesting a heavy dry hop. citrus is there, but its more mellow than juicy i think, and maybe thats do do with the sweetness of the malt. yeast is nondescript, and the beer finishes dry enough despite the front and middle. mellower carbonation than some of the other half acre brews, but it slows it down i think and suits it well. excellent beer, i think perhaps a tad bit inflated on the ratings, but really well done on the whole. drinkable for miles, even at 7% abv.

Dark rusty orange, with a slight haze to it. Compact layer of white sudsy foam that has a creamy meringue sheen to it's surface. Tendrils of lace stick to the walls of the glass.

Pungent hop aroma, catty and leafy green. Some earthy tropical papaya and light traces of herbal eucalyptus in the background. Less fruity than a growler sample a few weeks ago.

Soft pale malt breadiness, very similar to Daisy Cutter, with a bit more hop intensity: grassy, chive, papaya, overall a pretty interesting blend. Trace malt sweetness and lingering resinous bitterness that sticks with you for awhile. Medium bodied and very drinkable, though a bit similar to Half Acre's tried & true repertoire of IPA/APA's. Seems like a twist on Tasty Waves, or Daisy Cutter with amped up malt and hop bills.

This one is for Terry, rest in peace.

22oz brown bomber, no freshness date.

Its like getting slapped in the face with a bag of oranges while chewing on a marmalade sandwich. A big IPA that almost straddles the line between AIPA and DIPA. Seek a bottle out if you can.

LOOK: Orange amber, clear with a beautiful lacing

SMELL: Citric zest, mint, faint caramel, fresh pine sap, tobacco, pineapple skin

TASTE: Macerated whole oranges, very smooth, medium body, marmalade, bread crust, hop bitterness, warming alcohol, cashews, peppery, papaya

On tap at the brewery. Hazy orange. Smells of citrus and a little pine. Touch of caramel malt. Tastes citrusy. Orange and grapefruit behind it. Bready and toasty malt. Mild bitterness. Medium body. Very good, but not my favorite of their offerings.
