Notes/Commercial Description:
Formerly know as Daly Double.

The Daly Double, an India Pale Ale brewed in memoriam of a friend of Half Acre Beer Co. Terry Daly passed away suddenly after spending a lot of time at our brewery over the last few years. Terry was a fan of music, geometry, his two Huskies, Moon & Luna, and amply hopped craft beer. We’re pretty sure that Terry was the foremost consumer of Daisy Cutter Pale Ale.

People are the larger body that is the meat of our brewing company. Not the tanks or the beers, but the heart of what we do. The Daly Double is for Terry and all the other folks that give breweries life. To Terry, Huzzah!

Space is the new name for Daly Double. Pours a dark caramel color with reddish highlights. Clear with an ivory head that coats the tulip with lacing. The presentation makes one want to guzzle this down.

Aroma explodes with citrus hop and sweet malt far in the background.

The flavor consists of juicy pineapple, grapefruit and orange backed by a strong, rich malty body that totally balances and compliments the hop profile. This juicy/bitter fruit flavor flows through the swallow from beginning to end. A bitter finish of perfect proportion that does not incinerate the taste buds.

The mouthfeel is perfect. Slightly oily with nice carbonation on the light side and moderate/full body.

Overall the top IPA on the planet. It takes the great hop profile of Daisy Cutter, amps it up then adds the bass section with the malt bomb nailing this down for a terrific session India Pale Ale. Each growler split with my bro went down in record time. Half Acre scores a Hat Trick with the aroma, hop taste and malt balance. Please keep this beer flowing from now on.

Serving type: growler

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

32oz "howler" from the brewery
L - deeper amber colored body, creamy ivory head
S - juicy, citric aroma with grapefruit, toasted grain, bold caramel; sweeter aroma, smells delicious
T - juicy and sweet up front with caramel and plenty of toasted grain, faint tea leaf; bitterness follows with grapefruit and orange rind, some pine, but still nicely balanced with the sweet juiciness riding through the bitter hops
F - medium body, ample carbonation, finishes semi-dry
O - absolutely delicious flavor profile here! I'd get this again for sure.
