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.

Bomber to teku

A: darker orange with some amber or ruby notes

S: wonderful mix of melon, bubblegum, tangerines, and pear; also a general aroma that's consistent with tropical fruit aromas

T: a big letdown after the fantastic nose: a light, juicy fruitiness (like fruit punch gatorade, but better) followed by classic daisy cutter flavors (malty and lightly hoppy)

M: wet and juicy, so pretty pleasant

O: a good beer that smells much better than it tastes. the nose is just fantastic

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.
