Notes/Commercial Description:
We've brewed a variant of Double Daisy Cutter we're calling Galactic Double Daisy Cutter. This version highlights Galaxy hops, a bruiser grown in Australia specifically to make palates numb. This beer insisted on being a beast. Uber-hazy and jam packed with the sticky, Galaxy hops, this beer isn't for the faint of heart.
As if pulled from the core of a distant, inhospitable planet, The Galactic Double Daisy is juicy and dank, rough and tumble and beautifully ugly. Strap on your boots and pull down some of the ooze, Galactic Double Daisy is here.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Pours a decent creamy fluffy 1/2 finger head, fades semi slowly, nice lacing, murky tangerine color.

Nose is whoa, tons of galaxy hops, citrus galore, dank resin, some tangerine, pith, passion fruit resin, little rind, hint of sweet malts, ripe bitter fruit.

Taste brings lots of tropical fruit juice, sweet candy malts mixed with it, fluffy malts, passion fruit, resin and dank hops, pith, grapefruit peel, tangerine juice, etc. Nice fluffy malt and hint sweetness balance with decent bitterness. Quite nice, finish is drier and sticky but sweet, hint of booze warmth, more chewy bitterness, more citrus fruit too, pretty tasty though.

Mouth is med bod, hint of booze, nice carb.

Overall good but mixed, started really nice but the more I had it it got a little more meh. Too bitter rindy and sweet, bit still quite nice.

Pours a cloudy, sunshine orange, with medium carbonation and overall a very pretty brew.

Smell is wonderful, definitely getting a cotton candy-esque sweetness that is countered with a tangy hop bitterness.

Taste doesn't quite meet my expectations, but that's alright still a tremendous brew. Tastes like freshly baked biscuits, slight citrus, I'm always intrigued by the galactic hop, very tasty but can't quite put my finger on the taste.

Mouthfeel is marvelous, a somewhat bizarre bitter after taste, but nothing I can't get over.

Overall very glad I picked up 3 of these when I had the chance as I haven't seen them anywhere since aside from tap.

Appearance - Pours a hazy, sunset orange with a half finger's worth of white head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of surface suds. Fair lacing, mostly spotty, with good stick.

Smell - Fresh orange zest, pineapple, light floral notes and a light breadiness.

Taste - Follows the nose. An enormous amount of juicy orange flavor. Moderate pineapple and light grapefruit. Vaguely touches on mint. Malts come through mid-taste and near the finish with bready qualities and a faint toastiness to produce a balanced finish. Light citrus pith in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full in body with fair carbonation. Smooth and somewhat silky before a semi-dry finish.

Overall - Yeah, this beer is delicious. Can't help but think Jai alai when drinking it; they're very similar, except this thing packs a punch at 8%. Well worth trading for. If you can get it, get it!
