Half Acre Beer Company Daisy Cutter Pale Ale

What the brewers say

“A west coast Pale Ale chock-full of dank, aromatic hops. This one's a screamer, hoard it.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Clean hops aroma evokes everything from pitch, pine sap, faint tobacco, and resin to citrus, flowers, and tangerine. A faint earthiness and bready, cracker-like malt sits in the background. Esters are middle of the road and complement the hops aroma with notes of peach, biscuit, slight banana cloviness.”

Flavor: “Very even malt/bitter balance with low bread notes and plenty of grassy and floral hops flavor coming through that wasn't apparent in the nose. Same fruits as nose—peach, slight banana. Strong clean bitter hops bite with a bit of resinous hops character. Malt is not as sweet as expected given the aroma.”

Overall: “Super tasty. This well-crafted pale ale showcases the brewer's skill at keeping everything in balance. The strong hops flavors contrast with the maltier-than-typical backbone, pushing this right to the line between pale ale and IPA. But the result is delicious.”
