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 an attractive orange with slight haze. Recedes to leave some lacing, head is not particularly dense.

Smells of candied grass. pineapple. apricots.

Tastes slightly dank with lots of tropical notes. Some grass notes and quite a bit of floral character. Lots of hop flavors without much observable bitterness as it is well integrated. Finishes with a huge, sticky euphoric hop note.

Medium bodied with fairly light carbonation.

Very enjoyable beer here.

Appearance - Clear copper color. 1 finger of light fluffy foam head that leaves behind chunky lacing.

Smell - Floral & citrus up front. Some earthy grass notes in back. Caramel malt as well.

Taste - Much like it smells. Trademark floral and citrus of Daisy Cutter but with a big and slightly bitter caramel malt body that's reminiscent of Lagunitas' Undercover Investigation Shutdown ale.

Mouthfeel - Med/heavy body, med/high carbonation, semi-dry finish.

Overall - Definitely worth a try. Glad I got a bomber of it. I'm not going to hunt down anymore of it though. Daisy Cutter by itself is pretty solid. I have no problem sticking with that. A 4-pack of that at $9.99 is a much better bang-for-the-buck than a bomber of this at the same price.

A -Pleasing amber with orange highlights, very appealing

S - Smell of apricots and citrus

T - All kinds citrusy/fruity apricots with a lot of hops

M - Slightly carbonated with good body

O - Galatica Double Daisy Cutter is worth the wait/effort. This beer is one of a kind and I am not a big pale ale guy. Very nice and I am just disappointed I only got two bombers.
