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!

Growler fill fresh from the brewery. Whenever this stuff is available I jump to grab a fill, as they no longer bottle it. $15 for a fill, not bad at all. Poured into a Bell's Tulip glass.

Appearance: A surprisingly dark and opaque reddish-orange with a 2 finger creamy white head, good retention and lacing.

Smell: Very nice aromas of mango, pineapple, kiwi, orange, and other tropical unripe fruits. Floral and pine tones take a backseat. May not be everyone's cup of tea but I really like it.

Taste: Follows along with the nose impressively, citrus and tropical notes with a floral piney finish. Bitterness is pleasing.

Mouthfeel: A little lacking, feels a tad thin and isn't as dry as I'd like it for as bitter as it is. Still good though.

Overall: One of my favorite IPAs ever. I feel really lucky to have access to this, living 10 miles away from the brewery. I fill this whenever it's available and enjoy it immensely. Very under-the-radar offering from Half Acre

22oz brown bomber, no freshness date.

Its like getting slapped in the face with a bag of oranges while chewing on a marmalade sandwich. A big IPA that almost straddles the line between AIPA and DIPA. Seek a bottle out if you can.

LOOK: Orange amber, clear with a beautiful lacing

SMELL: Citric zest, mint, faint caramel, fresh pine sap, tobacco, pineapple skin

TASTE: Macerated whole oranges, very smooth, medium body, marmalade, bread crust, hop bitterness, warming alcohol, cashews, peppery, papaya

Reddish-copper in color with a slight haze.

Fresh pine, orange zest, resin, white and yellow flowers, tangellos and a lightly dank quality.

Citrus, pine needles, resin, nutmeg, light brown sugar, roasted malt.

Medium bodied and very clean on the palate. Just the right amount of bitterness.

While some of the descriptors are sweet, there is nothing sweet about this beer. Great balance and a masterful use of bittering in the hops to just the right proportion. Finishes wonderfully clean and smooth. Really well done.

Growler poured into a FFF tulip

A - Deep, reddish brown with orange tint. Small layer of foam on the side.

S - Floral with sweet citrus, pineapple, light orange peel, and sweet strawberry. Very nice, complex and strong nose.

T - Slight pine bitterness with nice orange citrus in the middle. The strawberry comes in the middle to give it a nice sweetness. The floral and a slight bitterness that comes in the finish.

MF - Light body with light carbonation in it. Slight hop resin remains on the tongue in the finish.

O - Nice light hoppy beer with a lot of flavor. I like the strawberry and red fruits with the floral aspect. The strawberry fruit makes me wonder if they threw in Galaxy hops to get that flavor.

on tap @ the brewery

served in that dope half acre stemware - bright coppery orange body - this is a great IPA - nice waves of tropical fruit, sugary goodness, pine needles, sweet sappy goodness. Really nice stuff - apparently my palate was just blown when i tried this at GABF, because I really liked this at the brewery.
