Half Acre GoneAway IPA

I picked this beer up from a store in Pennsylvania by our local Target. From the outside, this place looked like a total dump. When I went in, I was pleasantly surprised that the selections were outstanding and plentiful. This was hidden in a cold case and I completely forgot that Pennsylvania gets Half Acre distribution.


ABV: 7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Available September-March, this beer is a western charged firecracker, a conjuring of classics laid to rest on a bed of pale malt. Deep gold and ready to travel the distance. 7% ABV”

Random: This is a September to March seasonal.

This brew poured with a finger of white head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. It left a thick crown on top of the body. The body was a medium-yellow color and cloudy with moderate carbonation visible despite the cloudiness. The nose was really grassy. It also had some pine, but was mostly hay and fresh-cut grass, almost more like a pale ale. The taste was also really bright and grassy. There was some malt, but it manifested as crackers as opposed to sweet, caramel malt. There was also a green herbal note that tasted like mint. It had a medium thick body with high carbonation. The finish was lengthy and vegetal with mint and grass. A pounder can of this was $2.37, which broke down to $.15 per ounce. This beer was really easy drinking, despite the elevated ABV. I would definitely have this again.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
