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.

2.65/5  rDev -39.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

I'll be the low reviewer with the huge deviation it seems:
A: Murky true-gold color with some bronze. Decent head from easy pour, not much retention or lacing. Opaque.
S: Good. Solid and rich tropical fruit, citrus and a touch of pine. Very pronounced and likeable. Best aspect of the brew.
T: Murky muddled caramel fruit and bitterig hops. I like a bitter IPA more than most, but the flavors just don't meld well. Astringent, and the good flavors (more of the fruit and pine) get lost in the mess. Worst part of the brew. Below average for sure, and then some.
M: Not bad. Hard to get past the persistently not good taste, but medium bodied, spot on for the style, and leaves a nice coating. Wishing for more carbonation to wash the taste away.
O: Not too happy. I could smell this and be ok, I could feel this and be ok, but I can not drink this and really 'like' it. It's alright at best, and I'm sure if I wasn't thinking about it I'd be happier. After having a can of Daisy Cutter, this is not doing that name justice at all. Just not good. Will not recommend nor seek out more.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- Copper orange color, transparent, thin head
S- Honestly I get the dank smells, but this smelled strongly of onion and garlic
T- Very floral, piney, dank, subtle malt sweetness, garlicy/oniony in the background
M- Chewy, bubbly
O- I was very disappointed by this brew, I would much prefer regular Daisy Cutter to this beer. I might just not be a fan of galaxy hops, it doesn't really compare to citra hops for me.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Thanks to Tony for sending me a bottle. Served in a Bruery tulip.

Pours a dark, cloudy peach with a creamy white head of small bubbles. Average retention and light lacing. Smells like the HF Galaxy (my only other reference point for this hop), strong tropical notes with a light vegetable/floral finish. Flavor is muted orange and mango hops, well balanced sweetness and bitterness. Medium thick body, chewy and slightly boozy in the finish. Nice beer, even better I assume if you haven't had regular double daisy or hf galaxy.

bomber poured into a tulip. Shared with Mr Kennedy
Thanks to Readbaron and Dunt for the bottle

A-- Poured a dark, dirty hazy orange amber color. One finger off white dirty head. Faded down and stayed at just above film through drinking this. Great lacing as it left a lot of spotty lacing through drinking this.

S-- Thick and earthy. Lots of grapefruit, mango, passionfruit, and orange. Very earthy and thick smell. Really reminded me of what stone and wood Pacific Ale would be as a double pale ale. Just bigger.

T-- Started off slow and picked up with more air. Lots of pungent mango and tropical fruits. Very earthy, gritty taste, very herbal in a way.

M-- Thick and rich. Sticky and somewhat heavy. Very coating and with a heavy tropical finish.

O-- Good Double Pale Ale. Find it ironic to get a Galaxy hop beer from Chicago with Australian grown Galaxy Hops. Reminds me a lot of the Stone and Wood Pale Ale here but this is much bigger, grittier, and dirtier than what can be found here. Easy to drink and ABV is very well hidden. Well done DAPA.

3.65/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a very dirty dark yellow/orange with lots of sediment.

The smell is a bit musty and bready with a big blast of fresh citrus and tropical fruit notes.

The flavor is a bit maltier than I would have expected, a big blast of lightly sweet sourdough before the hop flavors start to take over with light tropical fruit flavors. Has a long lingering bitterness.
A bit of alcohol flavor is coming through as well.

The mouthfeel is thick and a bit syrupy with a lot of resin.

This beer starts out good, but gets a bit muddled in the middle, a little to much malt focus. Galaxy might be the best hop in the world right now, I wish they would have let it shine a bit more.

Bottle tasted on 8/20/11

A - Nice golden, big frothy head, good lacing. Little bit of haze.

S - Definitely got excited about the nose. Tons of tropical fruit, mango, peach and some lemony citrus. This was just in your face fantastic.

T - Sadly, the taste disappointed. There was a little sweetness to go with a really strange bready yeast flavor that just did not work. Quite astringent on the finish.

M - Good carbonation but my was this boozy. Some little fermentation issue with this I think, otherwise would've been an awesome beer. I struggled to put away a few oz. Quite thick as well.

O - Smell was incredible, and I love the hop, but this was just not a very drinkable brew. Nice experiment, but somehow the malt bill and alcohol taste just didn't work for me.

dvelcich hooked me up with this gem in a recent trade. I'm a big fan of Half Acre beers and glad to be able to sample this one. Thanks again, Dan!

Pouring into the SF Beer Week 2011 tulip. This is a murky orange/yellow that formed a thin off-white foam that couldn't keep it together but is leaving some lacing behind.

Major league hops in the aroma with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and a light jab of hebal. Sweet candy corn is unexpected but intriguing.

Hops come through in the flavor too with a mix of spicy/herbal dankness with a modest lemon rind. Bitterness is moderate/moderate-high and lingers into a medium dry finish. Less hops than expected, based on aroma.

Medium-light in body with a moderate carbonation. Smooth and non-astringent bitterness.

Overall this IIPA offers up plenty of dank, herbal hops and is easy on the palette despite a robust 8% ABV. Would have liked more hops/bitterness but hard to pick out many faults.

Thanks to Sean9689 and johnbjaeger for getting me out bottles of this. Served in a Mikasa tulip.

Pours a nice bright peach color with a small white head that lasted for a bit before falling into a thin cap with a bit of lacing. Nice tropical notes in the nose. Plenty of mango with a bit of orange in the background. Flavor is orange, pineapple, and mango hops with a bit of booze. Light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Semi-bitter finish with some alcohol. Pretty good, but nowhere near HF Galaxy.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber into a Hopside Down pilsner glass.

A: Hazy, light orange-amber color with a fine peripheral ring of off-white bubbles. Light lacing remains on the glass. Chunky sediment settles to the bottom of the glass within a few minutes of being poured.

S: Crisp, clean hops are very piney, almost to the exclusion of other typical hop qualities. Caramel is hinted at, but no alcohol is detected.

T: Begins off-dry, with heavy pale malt presence aside grapefruit peel hop aromatics. Acidity is moderate and citric, dropping off into the slightly boozy middle. Aside from the alcohol presence, the middle is remarkably clean, absent of fruit qualities besides the lingering citric acidity. Bitterness surges during the finish while lingering malt leaves a biscuit quality.

M: Medium viscosity, slightly astringent on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: An added dose of malt and alcohol is not enough to steal the spotlight from the Galaxy hops. That said, this beer begins to cultivate an argument suggesting the best use for Galaxy is in a beer where nothing can get in their way, such as The Bruery's Humulus Lager.

22oz bottle poured into a Pint glass.

A - Pours a cloudy orange with an almost apple cider like appearance. The head is thin and a light tan color and if fades quickly to one side.

S - Very strong pine, come citrus.

T - Pine, grass, tangerine.

D - Bitter Pine, lower carbonation, heavier body.

Un-waxed 22oz bomber into my Surly nonic.

A - Pours a mirky hazy gold, sticky lacing, thin ring, filmy cap.

S - Big tropical fruits, hoppy bitterness, some floral notes, pine. The tropical fruits are up front and the biggest part of the nose...some hoppy pine in there as well. Slightly sweet piney finish.

T - Much the same. Sweet tropical fruit, hoppy bitterness, dank pine notes. A bit too sweet for me. Not sure if that's the malt or pine or what...but it's an overly sweet finish. Dare I say too tropical?

M - Medium, too much body, good carbonation, oily finish. Seems a bit to syrupy for me...

O - While it's a good beer, it's not great. HF Galaxy blows this one out of the water. I didn't really mind waiting in line for 30 minutes to get some bottles, but would be happier if it wasn't so sweet and thick.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - A nice orange, golden body with 6 or 7 "strands" of bubbly carbonation rising to the top. Pours a nice head, but dissipates quite quickly and almost no retention. A finished glass leaves a nice, spotty lacing.

S - Sweet and earthy aromas. Lots of hops, and light hints of banana.

T - Huge amounts of bitter hops, but what else would you expect from a DIPA jammed packed with Galaxy hops? A nice caramelly body with a strangely roasty coffee finish.

M - Decent amount of carbonation. Moderate alcohol burn on the throat, also.

O - This is a really tasty DIPA. Daisy Cutter is a favorite go-to IPA, but this DIPA version gives it a lot more personality and flavor. Not sure if it's worth $10/bottle, but I'd recommend it to anyone who's an IPA fan. Cheers.

8th review on BA
Bomber into New Belgium snifter.

A: Smooth orange haze with single finger nail head on medium pour.

S: Floral, floral, floral. Very pungent and citrusy, almost pine with a hint of earthy overtones. Smells like nature...

T: Bitter up-front that yields immediately to well-balanced hop character mid- to back-end of the palate. Aftertaste is quite piney (almost a little too long), but not an over-bearing in-your-face.

M: Smooth and nice. Most enjoyable!

O: A very, very well put together and smooth, smooth beer. Balance between malt, hops, and earthy overtones is nice, although pine flavor is quite big. Excellent one-off brew from a delightful base-beer. Thoroughly enjoyable and I look forward to drinking many more HA brews in the future!

22oz. bottle poured into a taster. Thank you for sharing Matt!

(A)- Pours a rather cloudy and dense orange color. Some white froth.

(S)- Tons of citrus. Orange, lemon, and peach. Bits of pine and malt.

(T)- Very fruity in a tropical sense. Woody too and piney. Very minimal malt presence actually.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Huge full on hop fruit and wood, but smooth and restrained.

(D)- A rather nice DIPA. Must be unfiltered due to its cloudy appearance and big hop flavor; it does work well for it. Very surprised by how mellow the malt backbone is.

A: Very cloudy, murky yellow orange in color. Forms about a half inch of fluffy white head on an aggressive pour. Decent retention and some light lacing.

S: Citrus, primarily orange. Juicy. Floral sweetness.

T: Starts off with a malty sweetness then strong citrus flavors appear. Orange, grapefruit, some tropical fruit. Mild to moderate bitterness. Fusel spice hangs around annoyingly on the back end.

M: Full bodied. Lower carbonation. Chewy with a mild astringent finish.

O: It just seems as there is something off with this beer. For only 8% the alcohol is quite apparent and the flavor just seems flat. Overall, a good beer, but far from a great one.

Pours a cloudy brownish-orange with a light cream head that dissipates down to a thin film rather quickly.

Aroma is bitter citrus and tropical fruit mixed with grassy hops.

Taste upfront is bitter citrus, grapefruit, orange peel, and grassy hops. Bready malt middle. Bitter tropical fruit finish. Little grapefruit flavor. Lingering grapefruit bitterness. As it warms the tropical fruit overtakes the grapefruit and citrus. More malty as well.

Medium body with a slightly creamy, moderate carbonation.

Overall a nice high-hop bitterness with just enough malt backbone.

A - A very cloudy and opaque beer that almost looks like inconsistent juice. Orange-yellow in color with a small white head that faded to a partial cap and left very little stick on the sides.

S - Explosive tropical fruit right off the bat on the nose. It's a very sweet and full smelling fruitiness. There is a lot of wet grass/hay smell in here, with just a slight bit of hop bitterness on the end.

T - Once again, tons of tropical fruit, reminds me a little bit of juice. Some dank grass and a little bit of pine. The tropical fruit is sweet, maybe a little too much going on, but good. Would like something to break it up a little and add some complexity.

M - Meduim bodied, lots of juice like feel. Could use a little more carbonation, my only real complaint about this beer.

O - Good beer, great if you like tropical fruit flavors. Easy drinker, two of us drank the entire growler just fine.

Thanks to DrAwkward82 for sharing this one at drewone’s tasting.

Pours a murky honey yellow with a tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, herbal hops, and alcohol. Taste is pretty much the same with a medium bitterness that lingers on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice super hoppy presence. On a side note, I am really digging the artwork on the can too.

Bomber courtesy Dan poured into a New Belgium globe.

Pours a very milky mango color with barely any head. Reminded me immediately of Mango Mama. I can understand that it's heavily hopped and dry hopped and what not but looks pretty fuckin' far from an IPA!

Complex hop profile to say the least: initially it was mangoes but I can definitely smell the spice and slightly dank notes. Brief suggestion of malt melds really well with the fruit. Off to taste: thankfully bitter! Maybe I have an acute case of LTS or it's just the spicy food but I am having a hard time tasting bitterness in beers these days. Galactic has definitely broken that dry spell for me!!

Fruity, flavorful and bitter to the bone, this is a straight up DIPA. Some alcohol warmth along with the medium finish. The carbonation is medium and the texture oily, almost viscous. Aside from the looks, it's a good DIPA and a good beer, not to mention that it's thankfully on the lower side of ABV for DIPAs!

Poured from bomber into snifter glass. Pours a hazy orange color with a smaller white head. The aroma is all about the hops: resiny, tropical fruit, pineapple and mango with earthy notes sneaking through here and there. The flavor has more of the same; tropical fruits, grapefruit, resiny and mango create a strong lasting bitterness. Enough of a malt backbone to provide a good base. Decent lasting medium mouthfeel.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip.

A - Hazy orange with bubbly white head. Head linters and leaves some lacing. Looks like orange juice with a beer head.

S - Loads of citrus hops in the smell, those galaxy hops seem to pack a wallop and still have a semblance of an hay/earthy aroma to them. All that citrus really plays over everything else, but it is a nice smell.

T - Just like the smell, loads of citrus hop flavor. Bold citrus flavor, but a very light backbone to this, some slight grain, but not a ton of malt. Very sweet overall, could have maybe used a little more balance.

M - Pretty medium bodied, but impressive for the amount of hops that smelled and tasted in this beer. Good carbonation and easy to drink considering the amount of hops. Hops were very prevalent, but not too overbearing to the palate.

O - Good beer and solid citrus flavor. I particularly like the overly citrus hops, so this was right up my alley. Could have used a little more backing to the hops, but was drinkable and enjoyable.

@Woodshop Classix

App- Top fading yellow to orange with a semi craterous one finger head. Quick falling and a nice bit of cling and lace. A thicker head to it as well.

Smell- More of a malt forward DIPA. Had a nice juicy citrus with just a touch of bitter on the nose. More leaning to the larger yellow citrus fruits.

Taste- A nice DIPA that was a big want of mine. I loved Daisy cutter so I was excited to see this floating around. I wasn't punished by the hops, but this seemed to be a bit more malty with the citrus/tropical fruits.

Mouth- A bigger medium body and a paired mediium carbonation. A light bitterness and a nice citrus residual flavor.

Drink- A nice mid-coast DIPA that retains a balance between punishing and citrus. A nice tasting beer with good layers and a bit thicker. Would be a bit better if a bit colder than when I had it at the bottle share.

22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Big thanks go to goodstrongbeer for this in a recent surprise box of Half Acre bottles that he sent me. Thanks Jon! By the way, I love the label for this beer. One of best I’ve seen lately.

Pours a hazed lighter looking copper color, almost like a glass of grapefruit juice honestly, with 2 fingers of bright-white head. This maintains that rich look here, with a sudsy cascade of lace that sticks with a light spotty look. The aroma is just bursting with rich tropical fruit flavor. Pineapple, grapefruit, and mango stand out here, with pine, herbal hops, and some faded floral character filling out the edges of the nose. The malts prop themselves along the back, with a sweet graininess that hangs with the more sugary smelling aspects of those tropical fruit flavors.

The taste is bitter grapefruit and sharp resins, which zip across the tongue. This aggressiveness is softened by the light toasted grains of the malt and then the sweetness of those ripe tropical hops, which are just as robust on the palate here as they were in the nose and really make this, with juicy pineapple and sticky mango notes leading the charge. An herbal character emerges more as this warms and also helps smooth out that bite as well. There is still a little brightness left to this, popping the zestiness of that grapefruit the most. The finish is dry and piney, with a bitter feel that sticks to the tongue but fortunately not overly so. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, maybe a little fuller feeling, and crisp on the tongue with much more of a creamy and slick texture on the edges. That really keeps this easy feeling with only some very light warmth from that 8% ABV being present. The alcohol is about perfect here, adding some fullness to the body but not interfering with the flavors in any way.

Even with a few months on this, this was still a pretty kick-ass version of the already awesome Double Daisy Cutter. Those Galaxy hops really get to shine here, as this was one of the most tropical smelling and tasting IPAs that I’ve had in a while and the super easy drinking body here just sealed the deal for me. I’d love to see this one come back as well; as I’m sure a fresh bottle of this would be a thing of beauty.
