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.

Pours a very hazy amber with a thin white head. Very nice smell, floral with sweet malt and pine. Taste is great, the malt body allows the abundant galaxy hops to flex their muscles. Grassy, spicy, and piney in the finish, the sweetness starts up front almost preparing you for the hop explosion to come. Overall a good afterwork beer!

A: cloudier then a stormy day with dark almost like light tree bark uneven distribution throughout but looks good

S: lots of hops and tropical friut up front there are also hints of grass

T:lots of galactic hops with the tropical fruit flavor but it is well balanced with the bitterness and malt

M:smooth and easy to drink considering I would classify it as thick and heavy.

O: this is a really solid double pale ale, I really like it and would buy again but not the best ever.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a wonderful murky/hazy golden dandelion hue with a nice one finger creamy white head that left some nice side lacing.

S - As I pop the can huge aromas of Galaxy hops explode from the can. Super dank and inviting. Once poured into the glass the dankness really pops. This is full of hops and oils. Very nice.

T - Oh yah. Explosion of grapefruit meat and rind, tons of hoppy oils. To hell with balance, this is a glass of galaxy baby! Super bitter, there is a slight bready hint towards the end that mixes with citrus. Pine tries to come through but is squashed by that graperuit peel.

M - This is so bitter and hoppy that is actually nearly dries the mouth out, demanding one gets another sip! The carbonation is perfect for this, excellent, spot on. Super enjoyable.

O - Overall this was a delicious surprise to get in my box. I'd heard about this beer and glad I got it, and a fresh one too! This beer screams Galaxy hops and I love it.

Reviewing the latest batch of Galactic Double Daisy Cutter from Half Acre Brewing Company out of Chicago.
Score: 96

Can is from the Chicago Craft Beer Week release on the last week of May 2012, served in a snifter glass and enjoyed while fresh on 06/06/12.

Appearance: Pours a hazy/murky yellow-orange color with three fingers of foamy/seafoam cream colored head that slowly recedes to a thin film atop the beer. Slightly below average lacing, but really good retention. 4.5/5

Smell: Sharp and fresh orange citrus zest, sweet grapefruit, lemon, and pineapple juice. Ample doses of fresh pine, dew-laden grass and even a little resinous sap. A fresh, powerful, bold and inviting IPA aroma. 4.75/5

Taste: Sweet grapefruit and orange upfront with a mild sweet-and-sour lemonade flavored backbone. Prickly fresh pine on the center of the tongue. Lingering tropical sweet citrus flavor that is just a touch tart and giving the bitterness of the beer an invigorating pop. Can't get enough grapefruit flavor on the palate here. The balance between the hop bitterness and the citrus sweetness is really nice, and it makes the beer incredibly drinkable and refreshing. Yum! 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Juicy mouthfeel. Bitter, sweet and just a touch tart. The mouthfeel is spot on for an (imperial) IPA of this type. 5/5

Overall: Half Acre makes a lot of really excellent hoppy beers that rival the likes of Alpine, Three Floyds, Hill Farmstead and Lawson's, but I am firmly convinced that either this or Shewolf (a Three Floyd's collaboration IPA) is Half Acre's best brew.

Recommendation: Seek this out if you can find it fresh. It is a world class imperial IPA. I think it is on par with the likes of Arctic Panzer Wolf and Ghandi Bot.

Pairings: Grilled chicken.

Cost: $18 for a four pack of cans.

From notes. Reviewed on 6/2.

A- Pours a dark hazy orange with a one finger head that leaves some webs of lacing.

S- Lots of tropical and citrus fruit with juicy passion fruit, white grapefruit, peach, lime, lemon, pineapple and some caramel malt.

T- Follow the aroma with juicy ripe tropical and citrus fruit with notes of passion fruit, lime, grapefruit, mandarines, pineapple and a hint of pomegranate with a decent amount of caramel malt at the end.

M- Medium carbonation with a slightly chewy body that finishes a bit dry.

O- Easily the best beer I've had from Half Acre. Not sure why, but I throughly enjoyed this batch more than the bottle batch last September. The bitterness seemed to be toned a bit in this batch. Either way, this is a fantastic beer and I hope they try to brew it more often.

Thanks pellinore1 for the hook-up on this sweet extra.
The beer pours a hazy sunset orange with a fluffy inch of white head that leaves behind dense lacing as it quickly flattens. This already looks like my kind of DIPA and the nose seals the deal. Notes of intense and puckering pineapple are smoothed over by the beer's malty sweetness and alcohol bite. The taste is like drinking concentrated galactic hops with a big malty backbone to help bring the body and sweetness necessary for balance and drinkability. Despite the taste bud numbing cigar I just consumed, there is an intense hoppiness that lingers on the palate, but it's not the overwhelming grapefruit rind bitterness like some DIPAs possess. The hops, in combination with the beer's sweetness and adequate carbonation, make this beer's mouthfeel smooth and fruity. I would absolutely drink this beer again, hopefully in the near future.

Can courtesy of Treebs. Thanks for hooking me up!

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange color with a big white head that left spotty lacing.

Smell: Lots of fruit going on and jumping out of the glass. Orange and tropical fruits make for a great nose. Smells like lots of interesting hops.

Taste: Sweet citrus hop flavors dominate the front end. Moderately hoppy with some resiny, dank flavors after the initial sweetness. Not too big of a hop bomb, but interesting enough to really savor each sip.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and well-carbonated. Felt a little heavier than I expected. No alcohol detected.

Overall: Interesting hop profile that kept things exciting. Delicious fruity flavors and easy drinkability make this a winner.

Half Acre
Galactic Double Daisy Cutter
16oz, can.  No date
Victory tulip

A: Pours extremely cloudy darkish orange color.  Two fingers of off white fluffy head.  Looks to be nicely carbonated.

S: Very fruity!  Lots of overripe peach, mango, papaya, etc.  Tropical fruits for sure.  I get a little bit of maltiness underneath all the hops but not too much.  Smells fresh still!

T: Surprisingly, you don't get overwhelming bitterness right on the tip of the tongue.  You get those fruits, peach, mango, and orange marmalade.  Then in the middle of the month the bitterness comes in along with some malt sweetness to balance the hips.  The ABV is nicely hidden.  Drinks much less than 8%.

M: Medium bodied.  Somewhat creamy actually.  Nicely carbonated.

O: A-

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Half Acre branded seidel.

Pours a hazy orange amber with a fluffy white three finger head; plenty of lacing as the head recedes. The smell of ripe fruit and citrus rind are upfront. The taste of green grass and juicy passionfruit transitions into slighty sweet malt and finishes with grapefruit rind bitterness. Abundant carbonation and a heavy malt backbone lends to a slick mouthfeel with plenty of body; seem heavier than regular Double Daisy Cutter. A delicious variation on a great brew!

4.4/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

It pours a really hazy orange, amber color with a really nice white head that stands about 3 fingers high. The head has nice tight bubbles and has fantastic retention and leaves behind great striped lacing. The aroma is incredible, a wonderfully dank floral bouquet leaps out out of the glass, analogous to sticking one's face in a wild meadow, bright citrus notes come out with a big grapefruit presence as well. Nice resinous aromas of pine sap sneak out at the finish with just the faintest cereal grain, make no mistake this is one hop forward aroma, a great change of pace from both previous Daisy Cutter offerings. The flavors are just as fantastic, starts with a big burst of citrus, oranges and grapefruits, that is followed by a strong dank floral presence, almost like rosewater or hibiscus water, that is finished by an absurdly bitter rush of coniferous flavors. The flavor profile really highlights the galaxy hop, fruity and citrusy with a nice dank floral backing, easily the best use of the hop I've ever encountered. The body is spot on, big and full, juicy texture that has a perfectly dry bitter finish.

Verdict: Incredible DIPA from Half Acre and in my opinion, the best beer they make. I love Daisy Cutter but this takes it to a whole new level. I can't get over how hazy and dank this beer is without becoming overly vegetal. Please Half Acre, make this beer more often.

Thanks to Robbiemoy13 for this one. Poured in to Half Acre pint glass.

A - Very cloudy, orange/peach colour with two fingers of cream coloured head that slowly reduced to a thin layer.

S - Huge citrus and tropical fruit aromas up front. Grapefruit, tangerine, peach and lighter mango notes are present along with a fairly assertive bitterness. A light caramel malt backbone is evident in the background.

T - The citrus and tropical fruit flavours are not nearly as pungent as the nose indicated but they are present. Some grapefruit, orange zest, pine and herbal hop flavours are evident. A slight malt sweetness is present in the background.

M - Medium body, somewhat creamy. Light carbonation.

O - Another excellent beer from Half Acre. I prefer the regular Double Daisy, but this was interesting to try.

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

Poured into my FFF tulip

A - Apricot color and very hazy. Only a slight amount of light gets through.

S - Grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple and mango. You really get the tropical fruits bursting forth from this one

T - Grapefruit hops up front that are very well balanced with sweet tangerine and mango. I get a slight lemon peel as well near the back.. The finish is slightly dry with the grapefruit hops coming back and giving the beer a slight bite without becoming overpowering.

MF - Light with amble carbonation and a light stickiness. The beer is thick enough to not be watery but light enough to make it very drinkable for a DIPA

O - I haven't had double daisy cutter but this reminds me of a thicker, hoppier and slightly fruiter of version of Daisy Cutter. It is surprisingly light and drinkable for an 8% DIPA. I could actually imagine drinking a couple of these on a hot summer day. Solid offering that is worth seeking out next time they brew it.

Can (2012)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, DLFarris!

Hazy, cloudy dark orange in color with a somewhat large, very persistent off-white head that lasts and lasts. This leaves the glass completely messy with thick sheets and lines of lacing.

This beer smells amazing--it being less than two weeks old can't hurt either! Stinging citrus notes erupt from the glass (orange and grapefruit, namely), pear and light apple, floral notes, along with just a bit of sweet bread and warm alcohol. Fantastic.

Moderately bitter along with lots of citrus, floral, pear, and passion fruit flavors. Malt is minimal. This is a celebration of hop.

Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

Just a wonderfully fresh, delicious DIPA. I will want more of this!

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.

4.38/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Received in a recent trade thanks to a generous BA.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy murky light caramel to toffee with a 1.5 finger white crown that shows moderate retention and decent lace.

Smell: Some tropical fruit notes, mainly strawberry/passionfruit from the galaxy hops and grapefruit as well as some herbal to lightly grassy notes.

Taste: Same as smell but with even less red fruit intensity. I'd give it a 4.25 if I could so I'm rounding up a bit.

Mouthfeel: Light side of medium bodied and fairly well carbonated.

Overall: It isn't as pungent or bitter as Hill Farmsteads Galaxy and I know from my own homebrewing that its possible to get a lot more red fruit flavor out of the galaxy hops but I could happily drink this beer with regularity if fresh.

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass

A: The beer is a dull hazy orange/gold color. There is a bubbly white head that fades quickly but not entirely. There are good looking curtains of lace.

S: Smells very hoppy. Citrus, especially orange, and tropical fruits like pineapple and mango. There is a good dose of pine as well.

T: Fruit flavors are present but less potent. Citrus and just a hint of pineapple. Pine and grass cuttings. Some caramel malt but this beer is hop oriented. There is a dry alcohol flavor which lingers with the grassy hop flavor. Similar dry bitterness as the regular daisy cutter.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a dry, alcohol feel.

O: Reminds me of regular daisy cutter with more citrus flavors. Pretty drinkable and tasty.

Pint can picked up from Half Acre recently, generously shared by willcarrera. Poured into a brandy snifter.

A: Pours a hazy dark orange with a small white head. Good lacing.

S: Incredibly fruity. Mammoth passion fruit, pineapple, mango. One of the best DIPA aromas I've ever smelled.

T: Big grassiness. Smooth passion fruit and citrus come out as it warms. Crackery malt and a bit of pleasant bitterness. Bit of tobacco in the background.

M: Great carbonation, nice feel.

O: The aroma was out of this world, but like with most hoppy Half Acre stuff, I'm underwhelmed by the grassiness in the taste. Still great stuff though.

Picked up 4 packof tall boy cans from brewery yesterday; poured into tulip glass today.

First thing to note: you can smell this beer from the moment you pop the can. It is incredibly aromatic: all citric/weedy hops on the nose. It pours a light orange color, which is quite hazy & opaque. Carbonation seems moderate: not too fizzy, but it is present. Great retention& lacing. Down the hatch, this is delightful. Everything you like about Daisy Cutter, but more...without being obnoxious. Bursting with citrus hoppy flavor (mainly orangepeel to me), with a lingering but pleasant bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the heavy side: a touch syrupy, but not off putting by any means. The finish is dry.

Overall: fantastic variation of a flagship brew. Save more for me!

Picked up a four-pack of these from the brewery this afternoon, 16 oz can, no canned-on date (but it must have been within the last few days), poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a super hazy golden apricot color, topped with three fingers of thick, creamy off-white head, has good retention and leaves tons of crusty lacing on the glass.

S- Damn! Huge fruity hop aroma, loads of mango, grapefruit and passionfruit, seriously delicious tropical fruit aroma. Has some pine and malt in the background.

T- Follows with more big mango, grapefruit and passionfruit flavors, lots of big juicy hops, a bit of pine resin but not as much as I had expected, still very fruit forward, has a nice smooth pale malt background.

M- Medium body, smooth creamy feel, slightly dry finish.

O- A pretty damn awesome DIPA, the fruity, juicy hop flavors on this beer are awesome, I can definitely pick up on the passionfruit and know now that I am a fan of Galaxy hops, I also can't believe how drinkable this is, I've always loved regular Daisy Cutter but this might be my new favorite from Half Acre. (Also 1st review from a can, hell yeah!)

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!

1 month old 22oz bottle into Teku

Perfect IPA. I can't even break it apart into categories, its literally perfect in every way. I'm not here to fluff up their ratings either, I was completely blown away. The taste is reminiscent to Zombie Dust, but somehow manages to be more tropical.... I wasn't even aware that was possible.
I'd trade all the Heady and Pliny in the world to make this a year round release.

The only thing I feel I should mention is that on the bottle this is labled as 6.5%, which makes this a single IPA in my book. Until now my favorite IPA has been Blind Pig from RR, and this dethrones it effortlessly.

My only regret is that of the 6 bottles I bought, I traded all but this one bottle.

Bought a bottle for $7 at the Local 44 bottle shop during Philly beer week. Poured into a snifter. Nice white 2-finger head with clear light copper color. Smells of piney & citrus hops. A bit resiney. Some melon, orange peel, maybe a little white wine qualities in the nose. Hop forward taste with ample bitterness and piney/citrus flavors. Reminds me of Union Jack. Feels light and extremely drinkable. An all around excellent beer. This brewery is quickly going on my breweries to keep an eye out for and one I will def drink from again.

22oz bomber courtesy of Dustin; shared with Evan F today 6/8/2013.

Aroma: Lots of fresh grapefruit up front for sure. A little bit of cat piss and floral notes, a bit of the toffee and caramel, but mostly the grapefruit. Smelled fantastic for sure. (4.75)

Colour: A nice darker amber body, with a solid 1cm white head that stuck around for a bit. Looked well carbonated, a bit of lacing but not much. Very nice looking, just above average really. (4)

Flavour: Its odd that this one doesn't follow the nose so much. A good bit of floral hoppiness but I didn't get a whole lot of grapefruit like in the smell. Easy to drink, mellow and rather tasty. But after that nose, I couldn't help but feel a little bit let down. First world problems. (4)

Mouthfeel: Quite a bit resinous, medium bodied beer that's well carbonated. Aftertaste is mostly floral, earthy bitterness combined with some toffee sweetness. Very interesting and definitely hides the 8% ABV quite well. Easy to drink and a rather refreshing beer that doesn't leave much of a dry finish. (4.25)

Overall: Tasty, not sure I'd line up at Half-Acre for this one, but its definitely a great beer. Great nose, great mouthfeel, but the flavour is a little bit incongruent, but not necessarily in a bad way. (4.25)
