Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: GbVDave on 08-19-2011

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.

Poured from bomber into a Pipeworks snifter.

A: Pours a deep amber with a finger of foam with minimal retention, leaving behind heavy lace at the crown of the glass.

S: Orange zest, grapefruit rind, pineapple, and a sweat, bready maltiness.

T: Juicy clementine immediately, with other citrus flavors following in tow. That signature Half Acre bready malt flavor punches through right as the citrus notes fade, and a slight alcoholic taste makes itself known in the finish.

M: Crisp and dry with a medium body.

O: I much prefer this from a bottle than on tap, though, regardless, this is a very good beer, and probably my favorite DIPA coming out of Chicago. Leaps and bounds better than anything I've had from Pipeworks, Citra Ninja included.
