Half Acre Daisy Cutter
I've got another 16 oz. can from Half Acre Beer Company (and again, thanks to regular reader (and buddy!) Steve Herberger for the trade): Daisy Cutter Pale Ale. You know...15 years ago, we'd have said this was an IPA (even at 5.2% ABV) and whistled at how bitter and hoppily aromatic it is. Now? Definitely a pale ale in the sliding scale that is today's Hoppy Ale Continuum, and definitely perky and tasty. There's a serious snappy bitterness on the end, too. I recommend this to my buddy who thinks pale ales "have nothing to say anymore." Listen up, fathead.
