Poured into a tumbler glass, a perfect two fingers width of creamy foam settles and sits on the surface for a good while, and an ever present skim on the surface that lasted for the duration of the glass. Sea spray lace patterns wedged in between concentric rings of foam that materialize after each sip.

Tangerine, citrus forward with some light pale malt in the middle. Woody hop element with some sweet herbals that reminded me of tarragon.

Citrus peel, punchy bitter lemon and grapefruit peels. Smooth feel, moderate bitterness, ample hop character. Light bodied, about on par with Daisy Cutter, maybe a little softer. Honey in the aftertaste. If this was year round instead of Daisy Cutter it would be a new staple beer. Although it's yet another riff on Half Acre's many similar IPA variations, it's an excellent one that is seemingly flawless overall and extremely drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours out hazy, almost golden, with a modest head that drags a few shards around as the liquid is consumed

Smell: Bright, floral and tropical, with orange, pineapple and papaya aromatics

Taste: Bright, tropical and juicy, with pineapple, orange and papaya flavors; a hint of caramel malt builds, underneath, but the finish is as juicy as the start

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: It has been a while since I have tasted a Half Acre beer but this one reminds me of the fond memories I have of previous tastings
