look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy dark yellow, with fine, soapy foam.

Smell is wonderful, tropical and juicy with tons of mango and pineapple and a hint of vanilla.

Taste is refreshing and as tropical as the nose. Pineapple and mango and a bit of minerals are joined by a balanced hop bite. Terrific.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, another stellar pale ale by Tired Hands (and Half Acre).

16 oz. can dated 9/20/17

Pours cloudy hazy gold with a creamy white foam head. Smells like mixed berries, papaya, candied guava, orange citrus, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, coconut, cotton candy, sweet bready toffee caramelized malt, with dank floral resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes real piney, resinous and citrusy with some notes of mixed berries, papaya, guava, orange citrus, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, coconut, cotton candy, sweet bready toffee caramelized malts, with dank bitter floral resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, chewy and creamy with smooth moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice pale ale.

Thank you mymrnngjckt for surprising me with a can of this in our last exchange. Pounder can poured into a tulip pint appears a hazy pale yellow color with a soapy white head that fades leaving spotty lace.

The aroma is herbal and minty with citrus hoppiness. As it breathes, it displays a green yeastiness that im not crazy about.

The taste is a little grassy with hops and has a mild green yeasty bite. Some straw-like grain is present along with a mile touch of alcohol. As it gets warm, the green yeasty note becomes increasingly noticeable and im not crazy about it but its not distracting.

This is light in body with modest carbonation. A very easy drinking brew with nice hop character without getting all that bitter. I could drink a few of these but my experience here is quite polar of what the brewer claims the characteristics are.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass. Acquired as an extra in a trade. Canned 6/10.

Pours a nice golden hazy body with a decent sized fluffy head that reduces to leave a little lacing and a layer of retention.

Aromas are extremely muted. Malt and light hops come through. Citrus maybe? On the tongue are almost muted hops, biscuity malt, with a light bitterness on the finish. Medium body with medium high carbonation.

This was a miss. Mediocre IPA at best. Whers the flavor bro.

16 oz can. Hazy opaque orange color, thick foamy head fades slowly, little lacing. Mild citrus peel, earthy notes, touch of yeast in the aroma. Sweet light malt flavor is overtaken by a ton of grassy earthy hops. There's some tropical fruit under the earthiness, some peppery spice in the finish. Thin but soft feel with crisp spicy dry finish. Solid earthy pale ale.

This beer pours a murky dark orange with a huge, fluffy bright white head that has great retention and leaves many sticky webs of lacing in it's wake. Smell is boring. Floral, grassiness, almost clove like spiciness and slight citrus are apparent but subdued. Taste is the same, meh. Feel is light and over carbonated. Overall this beer is ok. Did not think Daisy Cutter was anything special (although still better than this) so I guess I shouldn't be suprised.

Can Date: 6/8/16
Palate Contaminants: none

Appearance is light straw color and plenty hazy. There's hardly any head or lacing, and I didn't give it a gentle pour, either.

The smell starts nutty and a bit metallic. It's got a little honey and is a bit floral, too. Fruits are mostly pear and grapefruit. Sweetness and malt increase as it warms up.

Taste is kinda like a forest: moss, peat, bark. I'll say ash for the wood. The fruit hits second for me, with grape, pear, and sour orange. A swish around the mouth brings the white grapefruit back. Dominant characteristic is bitter, but it's only moderate.

The feel is lightly carbonated, but it's not flat by any means.

as a huge fan of half acre and daisy cutter I was psyched to try this, but found it to be just ok. decent pale ale but nothing really pops about it. daisy cutter seems to pop pale ale to me, this one was fairly forgettable, not bad...just nothing to it to make me interested in drinking it when other stuff is around. shared this with a few ppl at a tasting and the can didn't even get finished.
