Was the 45 minute wait worth it? We'll see:
Daisy Cutter is a hazy beer to begin with but this orange fuzzy mess is nearly opaque. If it weren't for the perfect, snow-white head on this guy this would be in homebrew territory...
...which is washed away with an absolute explosion of juicy fruit on the nose. Seriously, the ruby red grapefruit punches you in the face before your nose even has a chance to get into the glass. Terrific.
Mmmm...yeah, this is really nice. I'll actually combine this with the mouthfeel because they're tough to separate with this beer; that unmistakable, light grain bill of the Daisy Cutter is right there but beefed up and then garnished with an insane dose of Galaxy hops. Citrusy, floral and ever so slightly biscuity. What makes this so remarkable is that there's absolutely no slickness or syrupy quality that's normally detectable with a beer this size. A masterful job here.
I'm a little fatigued with the Double/Imperial IPA genre but this is a breath of fresh air; as crisp and drinkable a DIPA as I've had.

Pours a hazed glowing orange with not much fizz.
Aroma explodes with citrus and tropical fruit. Guava, lemon, grapefruit plus some pine sap.
Taste is laser focused on the hops. Intense pine resin and grapefruit,
Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation. Sticky and mouth coating flavor.
One of my favorite hop bombs now has competition from Half Acre's new Navaja...hahaha. Good for me!
