I really liked this one I have to admit. Big fan of the original so of course I was curious what its big brother could do. Served cold and into a pint glass, this one was enjoyed on 06/20/2010.

Pours one of the murkiest and haziest of ambers I have ever seen. Looks like Mango juice or something, really full with a huge white cap of foam on top that thoroughly coats the entire inside of the glass. Really very, very well done I have to admit. Aroma is deep citrus hops. Tons of grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and a touch of tropical fruit thrown in. Warming brings some nice balance to it with a rich and buttery malt that builds along with a touch of hotness.

Each sip seems to be bigger then the one before it. Really nicely done. Crisp, biting, sharp the hops hit you like a ton of bricks and never did let go of itself. Smacking the lips against the teeth the oily, resiny hops dominate the show here. Smooth middle with a rich, full and creamy body, the ABV snuck up on me, but I found this to be so incredibly good, it did not matter.

Overall I have to say this was a great DIPA. One of my new favorites for sure.

Thanks for the tick, Chris. A growler shared at a post Bruery party gathering.

A: The pour is a orange in color with some golden hues and a big white head, too.

S: A huge citrus aroma with lots of resinous pine. There's a fair amount of bread forward malts, but the hops really dominate. The tangerine and grapefruit are really fresh smelling.

T: Although the nose seemed very balanced, the flavor was very much about the hops. Lots of grapefruit, lemon rind, pine, and maybe just a bit of grass. Some bready malts are present too, though.

M: The body is medium with a mild to moderate carbonation. Seems to have lost a bit of the bubbles from the trip in the growler.

D: I really like Daisy Cutter a lot so I have been wanting to try this and it did not disappoint. A fantastic beer from Half Acre.

4.4/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by three fingers of foam; impressive retention and lacing

Smell: Tangerine and pith

Taste: This is one of those DIPAs where the malt provides a clean backdrop against which the hops can produce their flavors; in this case, the flavors have a ton of citrus, pith and a hint of hemp; not much development from start to finish, but just a ton of great, bold flavor

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; very lively on the palate

Overall: This DIPA is right up my alley - no sticky malt and no booziness; just a clean citrusy hop profile; well done

Thanks to Dan for sharing this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.

Pours an orange-amber with a nice white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries a good mixture of citrus hops along with some tropical and light pine notes in the background. Flavor has a touch of bready malt combined with nice hop flavor and bitterness. Medium body and a nice dry finish with a long bitter kick afterward. Pretty impressive.

Thanks to TheStretch for sharing his growler on NYE!

After sampling this bad boy at the brewery, I've been looking forward to this growler's cracking. It pours a hazy golden copper topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit, caramel, cantaloupe, and pine. The taste holds notes of pine (sharper than the smell), dry leeks, honeydew, light caramel, and ruby red grapefruit. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, one of the better DIPAs I've yet had. Though I was hoping for slightly more flavor, this thing is disturbingly drinkable and continuously brings a smile to my face with every sip.

Picked this up at Half Acre last Thursday, the first (and likely) only day it was available. Served in my Kuhnhenn tulip glass.

A - Pours with a voluminous three fingers of foam that slowly dissipates to a thick chunky cap and glass-coating lacing. The body is a hazy golden apricot golden that glows when held to the light.

S - Pine, dank weed, fresh oranges, tropical fruit punch - all kinds of hoppy goodness here. There is a touch of malt backbone, but this is very West Coast in vibe with only a touch of sugar cookie and toffee peeking through.

T - Taste is full of pine, oranges, and bitterness. Again, not a ton of malt showing up here, with a touch of candied citrus and caramel. The residual bitterness gets more and and more intense as I make my way through the bottle, getting perhaps a bit more aggressive than I prefer.

M - The mouthfeel is a bit gritty although the carbonation isn't overly harsh. The body is decidedly medium, and the finish is oily and resinous, but only slightly drying.

D - The bitterness is more of an impediment than the ABV, which is on the lower end of the spectrum for Double IPAs anyway. Otherwise this is a terrific and highly enjoyable hop bomb from the guys at Half Acre.

Got a couple bottles at Half Acre yesterday.
Decided to review since it was a little different than the cask serving.

Into a tulip, it's a deep orange with a moderate haze. Some frothy lace licks the sides, and sticks as it dries out. Retention is good, the initial head is creamy with irregular crags and peaks on the surface.

Pungent citrusy grapefruit and orange peel, some woody leafy green stuff also.
Tropical and strong with the fumes.

Bright citrus hits you right of the bat, with a receding resiny hop bitterness in the end. Tropical flourishes of mango are dancing in there, over a densely citrus and grassy hop profile. Fairly balanced for a DIPA, smooth and easy to sip, but not so much a session beer. Sticky on the lips, a steady firm bitterness that lingers well into the aftertaste, leaving traces of grapefruit rind on the tongue. Very punchy and not for the faint hearted. As I said in my other review, this is in the realm of Dreadnaught, Goose IIPA, and Flossmoor IPA's like XIPA and FUd0b.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours an orange-yellow color with a white head. I get a ton of fruit in the aroma, namely grapefruit and pineapple but there are some other tropical fruits present. I also get a little bit of bready malt in the aroma.

The flavor is just as good. I get a ton of grapefruit, pine and papaya. Very fruity and tropical smelling. There is a tad bit of biscuit malt in the aroma and the bitterness is low to medium. Very drinkable.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice overall.

This poured out as a lightly hazy golden color with a thin white head on top. The aroma of hops were on the nose with some minimal hints of malt in there too. The taste of the beer was quite good, it had a bit of an earthy flavor blended with the citrus notes. The mouthfeel of the beer was smooth with some decent carbonation to it. Overall I thought the beer was pretty good and I would drink it again if I ever came across it in the future.

From 03/09/12 notes. Shared a bomber of this with some friends, poured into a Portsmouth tulip.

a - Pours a transparent medium amber color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, oranges, citra, fruity malts, pine hops, and some floral hops. Ton of fresh hops and citrus, really awesome nose.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, oranges, pine hops, grapefruity, fruity malts, and alcohol. A litle bit bitter. Hops are there again, but not quite as great as the nose due to the alcohol coming through.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Light bitterness in the mouthfeel.

o - Overall I thought this was a very good DIPA, though I was slightly disappointed for some reason; maybe because I love Daisy Cutter and was hoping this would be even better. The nose is great and the taste is very good, though the alcohol comes through a bit. Would definitely have it again, but I think I like normal Daisy Cutter a bit better.

Screw-top growler received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Gonzo Illini!

First stein pours with a 1/2" creamy beige head over the cloudy amber brew. Head holds on and on, with lasting chunky lacing. Aroma is lemony citrus.

Taste starts sweet for a minute, powerful lemon in the middle, moderate pine close coupled with a touch of earthiness. Mouthfeel is smooth, with drinkability is dangerously easy. Glad I got to have this one, and a whole growler's worth to boot. Cheers!

22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Thanks go to Sean9689 for sending this fresh bottle from the latest release out my way.

Pours a hazed copper in the glass, with 2 big foamy fingers of rich off-white head. This retains with a thick and creamy ½ finger that just drenches the sides with sticky lacing. Awesome look on this! The aroma is softer feeling in the nose at first, with floral, leafy, and herbal tones all setting the pace before sharp notes of grapefruit juice and pithy smelling citrus rind cut those the nostrils like a knife. There is just a semblance of sugary malts underneath all of this, but the hops are so bright and fresh smelling, everything else just comes in second place.

The taste has much more of a malt presence going on here, with honeyed sugars and bready biscuits being more than a match for that fresh and biting hop profile. Green grapefruit flavor is in abundance (being flavorful but not overly aggressive thanks to that balance) but the bulk of the bitterness is saved for the finish, with citrus peel and spice lingering with a steady dryness and a pithy peel that sticks to the tongue. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, maybe a little fuller feeling, with a crisp creaminess that is equal parts prickly sharpness and smooth slickness. And WOW, there is just no freaking way that this beer is 8-9%! There's absolutely no alcohol to be found here besides the heft of the body! I wouldn't even have guessed that this was high ABV at all, except for the flush of warmth that is slowly creeping up my neck as I work through the bottle. Most impressive!

This was my second time having this beer (the first being on tap @ the Great Taste) and there's no doubt that I think it's some awesome stuff. Take the well balanced fresh hop flavors of the regular Daisy Cutter; give it a fuller body, yet still retain the crisp drinkibility of the original as well. That's this beer in a nutshell. About as dangerous of a drinker as I've come across recently. Just really tremendous stuff!

On tap at the Memphis taproom as part of Philly beer week.

The beer pours a hazy golden amber color with good head retention and lacing. The is all DIPA goodness in this beer, as I get considerable tropical fruit, pine, light dank earth and orange citrus. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, and I appreciate how the pine and orange citrus balance the tropical fruit so well. Finish is dry and bitter, but with some noticeable pine and tropical fruit as well. This beer really delivers a lot of flavor, and I found the mouthfeel to be fairly full for a DIPA under 10% abv. The alcohol is somewhat noticeable, but not overly so, and I appreciate how the conssiderable bitterness in the long finish completely dries out all the tropical fruit.

I had this out of a growler several months ago (fresh from the brewery, apparently), and it seemed a bit richer and more intensely bitter than the beer I had at the taproom. Regardless, this is a very fine DIPA, even if it didn't wow me as much as I was expecting.

Thanks to Ken for sharing. The beer is golden hued with a thin white head. The aroma offers candied citrus, pineapple, sweet hops, tropical fruit. The flavor offers a huge dose of hops with grapefruit and a healthy bitterness. Really nice. Big and bold. I like this one a lot.

Double daisy cutter. 

White head. Color is a slight hazes golden orange.

Aroma: onus on and floral hops. Grassy. Tons of citrus. Orange and grapefruit. Some bready malts. Massive amount of hops.

Taste: tons of onions. Floral and grassy hops. Tons of citrus. Pine. Bready malts. Mimics nose but more onions.

Mouthfeel: bitter and juicy. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends with a hop resin stickiness.

Overall,  this was a fairly solid brew, but too much onion for me. Pretty solid otherwise. Massive amount of hops.

Thanks Alex! Opened on the elevated Pendragon veranda on Memorial Day and poured into a snifter. The beer appears hazy dark orange with a large frothy beige head, good retention, and good lacing.

The nose exhibits soft citrus notes, primarily orange flesh and tangerine with a little grapefruit. This beer has the strongest orange profile I've witnessed on a beer as of late. Light tropical notes are also evident, and there's a dash of caramel malt beneath the hop profile. The nose takes a bit of warming and coaxing, but it's very nice. A little alcohol is noticeable.

The flavor shows the same strong orange flesh profile I found in the nose, with accompanying grapefruit, pine resin, and subtle tropical notes. Bitterness is at an upper moderate level but it seems to compound as I work my way through the glass. There's a subtle alcohol bite near the end that's not really unpleasant, but it's worth noting. Actually, the more I drink the more noticeable the alcohol becomes. It tastes rather strong for only 8% (per the bottle), but it's not detrimental. Nice stuff. The moothfeel is smooth and dry with moderate carbonation. A nice American Double / Imperial IPA from Half Acre, though regular Daisy Cutter would win in a duel.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating but this was released very recently. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge mango, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, tangerine, floral, honey, grass, light pine, light caramel, and floral hop earthiness. Fantastic aromas with huge hop complexity and a solid malt balance as well. Taste of big orange zest, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, pine, honey, grass, light caramel, and floral hop earthiness. Fair amount of citrus and floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, mango, pineapple, pine, honey, floral, grass, and floral hop earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic hop flavor complexity with a nice malt balance; but still highly showcases the hops; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, lightly slick, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Double IPA! Great hop flavor complexity and balance; and extremely smooth to sip on. An extremely enjoyable offering.

Massive thanks to largadeer for sharing this one while hanging out at Beachwood BBQ after the Bruery RS Party! Served from growler into a goblet. Poured yellow-orange with a minimal white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, and citrus/bitter hops. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, and citrus hop. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a damn good brew. Not very much at all missing on the flavor or aroma in this one. Really glad that I got a chance to try this one while in Cali. A definite must try!

Another Half Acre beer shared by nickd717 a few weeks back. Thanks, Nick.

Hazy blonde, similar to regular Daisy Cutter in appearance. Nice head retention and color makes for a great looking beer.

Floral hop aroma with moderate sweetness behind it. A bit of tropical fruit, grainy sweetness, honey, grapefruit. Smells good, but regular Daisy Cutter has a better hop aroma. This one smells a bit too sweet in comparison.

The palate opens with honey-like sweetness and floral hop flavors, with undertones of pineapple and grapefruit. Side-by-side with regular Daisy Cutter, I feel this beer doesn't improve upon the flavors of Daisy Cutter enough to warrant the higher alcohol. Moderately bitter in the finish yet semi-sweet, this is a bit too middle of the road, though it is enjoyable. The alcohol is somewhat noticeable, and the hop character is a little underwhelming. It's a good beer, very enjoyable, but I'd take regular Daisy Cutter over it most days.

22 oz bottle split and poured into a Duvel tulip. 8.0% ABV, no date.

I shared Daisy Cutter with señior Beerwolf a while back, so it's only logical he shares the Double version with me right? I mean, based on our 'thanks-to' we sort of stick to sharing every-other bottle. :P

A - A bit foggy and golden orange with a finger-tall, off-white head and gooey lace left all over the glass. Honestly, it could be sexier.

S - Heavy hop aroma rich of grassy, fresh Chinook and Cascade resiny, gooey lupulin glands. Pale malt backs this hop bomb (yes, pun intended) up but doesn't offer much more.

T - Grassy, bitter, resiny hops with big citrusy notes and a mild backbone. Nice balance but it's a little too grassy like I remember Daisy Cutter being.

M - Medium-bodied and well-carbonated with a crisp, bitter finish, this one isn't over the top but rather, decently well-balanced.

D - As far as drinkability goes, this is best split at least two ways, it's a far cry from a sessionable brew. A little overly earthy, this beer is good but certainly not fantastic.

Bottle from the February 2012 release received as a gift from masterski. He's a nice guy. This batch is labeled 8%ABV and is my first Half Acre beer.

A mildly hazy peachy orange with a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and gorgeous lacing, this looks the part of a top quality DIPA. The nose has a pretty excellent hop character, dank, herbal, weed-like with candied orange, and plenty of tropical fruit. Plenty of ripe oranges, a little bit of peach and a touch of what to me is "Cascade hop chalkiness". Some malt sweetness is noticeable, caramel-like in nature.

The palate opens with a rather big and juicy hop bitterness with pine, candied citrus and a little bit of tropical fruit. Not as dank and herbal as the nose would suggest, this is also sweeter than on the nose. A blend of caramel and crystal malt flavors, the latter of which I don't particularly care for, are particularly noticeable on the mid-palate. Moderately drying and rather fruity on the finish, there is quite a bit of dank, marijuana-like herbal character here. However, there's a rather disappointing lack of hop resin character, making this seem just a little lifeless, really detracting from the positive qualities of the beer (I've docked 1pt solely for this reason) Medium-light in body with moderate carbonation, this beer is quite right for a DIPA, if a little heavy on the crystal malt. Enjoyable, recommended.

Thanks to Jason for this bottle.

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a healthy off-white head that shows excellent retention and sticky sheets of lacing along the sides.

Aroma is full of pineapples, tangerine and lemongrass with some resinous pine as well. Definitely an overall dank hop type thing going on as well. Just tons of big hop aromas.

Taste isn't quite as aggressively hoppy with an original herbal and pine bite with some bready malts in the background. There is a bit of citrus but less than I got in the aroma. The finish is bitter and resinous.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and sticky with hops with moderate carbonation.

I'm a big fan of this one. It's extremely drinkable and seriously dry hopped. If Double/Imperial Pale were a separate style, this would be top of the charts.

I had this on tap at Half Acre, but I am reviewing based upon the 22oz bottle I brought home...The beer pours with lots of carbonation, good couple fingers of head, good retention, great lacing. The beer is medium orange slightly clear...The aroma is mostly fresh hops with a pine finish, pretty strong, a little to strong for me, not really nicely balaned with any malt on the front... The taste starts out super strong mostly piney hops throughout. Again not overly complex. I really don't like it to start, but the more i drink the less the hops present and becomes pretty easy to drink...I really prefer the original over this, its just a little to strong and less balanced but its ok.

Had at the tapping on 5/19/10 at Smallbar Fullerton in Chicago.

A - Super, super cloudy, almost like really pulpy grapefruit joice. Tons of floaties in this one including some green hoppy stuff. Not much head on mine, just a small cap of whitish foam. Pretty dark, murky yellowish color.

S - Fruity, hoppy, but not as hoppy as I was expecting it to be. I actually think regular Daisy Cutter has a bit more of a hop bite to it. Some grapefruit, but not super citrusy like I was expecting. Solid.

M - Smooth, polish, just like a cask beer. Pretty full bodied and heavy, may have had tons to do with the floaties. Seemingly flat and undercarbonated like most cask beers I have had.

D - More of a sipper than anything else, I would like to see this with some more hop bite, citrus, and more carbonation.
