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.

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!
