Back in January, Half Acre changed the name of Heyoka India Pale Ale to Senita India Pale Ale. The change came after members of the Lakota (Native Americans from the Great Plans of the United States) reached out to Half Acre about the use of the term.
Well guess what. Half Acre is forced to change the name again, after another brewery raised concerns that Senita India Pale Ale might be too close in branding to another beer. That named got Half Acre a Cease & Desist letter.
Now, fans will know this storied IPA as Half Acre GoneAway IPA. Hopefully this beer doesn’t warrant another C&D letter.
