4.19/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A-clear yellow, one finger head with some lacing

S-has malt (Sam toasty ness as the daisy cutter) good deal of citrus hops, very tropical

T- well balanced, starts with a toasty malt. End with slight bitterness and lots of tropical and citrus hops

M-medium bodied, nicely carbonated, some hop resins

O-A well made DIPA, could have used some more bitterness to become elite. Still a well crafted balanced brew.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #87 (Apr 2014):

Intense, Bitter, Boozy, Brash

Appropriately named after a folding Spanish fighting blade Navaja cuts deep with its hop sharpness. Bitterness is unrelenting with layers of hop flavor that makes for a longer finish. Warmth from the alcohol reminds us sip to sip that this is truly a DIPA. Big Cheers to Half Acre!

S - Mango hop sweetness, pineapple, slight grapefruit, lemon peel. Good sweet nose

T - Sweet mango, pineapple, caramely sweetness, and strawberry. Light pine on the backend that gives it a good bitter presence that lingers on the backend.

M - Medium syrupy beer with a light hop resin in the finish

O - Good IPA from HA with a good fruit presence to it. Nice and sweet IPA with a light bitter presence that balances it out.

Appearance - light orange yellow color. any head that formed quickly left

Smell - Sweet Citrus flavor for sure. Lots and lots of grapefruit. As this warmed up I got much more malty balance

Taste - Wow what a lovely balance of grapefruit and malts

Mouthfeel - very very smooth and easy to drink

Overall - Sure glad I got one of these in a trade. Would drink again any time

Great looking bright hazy beer. Very crisp, fresh tropical juicy hops asserting out the glass. Has a midwest-eastcoast fusion of style, very fresh and clean bright tropical favors that is juicier and more astringent. A great Chicago IPA
