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.

Bright orange/amber on the pour, a bit hazy. Nice head that sits on top. Aroma had a little sweet malt mixed in with some juicy tropical fruit. Mango, pinapple, a little citrus. The flavor starts out with a big citrus burst, along with pineapple. A slight bitterness at the end even outs the sweetness of the tropical fruit. The malt stays in the background the whole time, never really getting in the way of the hops. This definitely does a great job of balancing out the sweetness. Creamy, medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is spot on as well, a nice bitterness on the aftertaste. Very nice ipa here, and i'd prefer this to regular double daisy, from what I can remember.

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Copper/orange color with nice fluffy white head that lingers for a bit. Slight haze.

S: Very fruity upfront with some pine. Candied tangerine, pineapple, mango, maybe a little bubblegum. Really nice aroma.

T: Again fruity upfront with some of that expected breadiness from Half Acre. Get notes of mango pineapple, and sweet tangerine. Slight alcoholic taste.

M: Crisp, dry, and not sweet. Just the way I like it. Medium body.

O: I love this beer, really like it more than the regular Double Daisy.

Big thanks to Homebrew311 for hooking this one up. Bomber poured into Spiegelau glass.

A: Light golden with a slight copper tone, and 2 fingers of white head. Leaves a good amount of lacing through the glass.
S: Straight up fruits with a little pine. Loads of citrus, pineapple, mango, lemon.
T: Similar to taste. So much citrus fruits up front, very sweet. I get a little bit of spices in the background as well.
M: Carbed well, quite dry. Very drinkable.
O: I'm a huge fan of the regular daisy cutter, this is a great take on the base with a hefty addition of ABV and over-the-top hops. I love the burst of aroma and flavors coming through. Reminds me a lot of the Anicca collab. Awesome job HA!
