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.

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

Pours amber in color with some hues of burnt orange and a moderate hazyness. Head is one and a quarter fingers off white fluffy and retains nicely.

Smell is incredibly juicy.bright fruity hop aromas with notes of tangerines, nectarines, mangos and some faint pinapple hop aromas. Nice floral hop presence typical to daisy cutter near the mid section however the sweet citrusy tangerine and nectarine aromas dominate.

Taste is defiantly hop forward. There is a big herbal hoppy oil vegetal flavor and moderate bitterness forward before the sweeter citrus hop flavors come out. Citrus hops also have notes of tangerines and nextarines. Caramel malt is amped up slightly from daisy cutter giving it a slightly sweeter flavor and a bigger husky grain flavor.

Mouthfeel has tons of hoppy oils and resin along with a big tropical and floral bitterness. Sticky hop oils are balanced with moderate amount of carbonation and a good malty sweetness.

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.
