9 hours in a car yesterday to and from Chicago, too much money spent, and this is the first beer from the trip that I'm going to enjoy. Snagged a howler at Half Acre, pouring into a Spiegelau glass.
A: Pours a crystal clear dark golden color with a slight copper tone. About 2 fingers of white foamy head that reduces slow, and leaves a fair amount of lacing.
S: Not a bomb, but a very well balanced citrus and spice combo. Some lingering sweetness in the background.
T: Nothing really takes lead on the flavor. I get citrus, I get spices and pine, and malty base, but not a single flavor pops. It seems to favor citrus at first, and as it warms up a but it seems to favor pine.
M: Sweet and smooth! Goes down fairly sweet, not much bitterness to speak of. My only complaint about this is it does feel a bit thin.
O: Very solid offering from Half Acre, glad I was able to try it. When I was there, it wasn't available in the Tap Room, just the shop next door. One of my favorite IPAs from Chicago to date, would love to see this available in cans!

Just got back from Half Acre Brew with a large haul but had to crack open the Space growler immediately. At first taste at the store I thought it was eerily similar to 3F Zombie Dust, apparently this is the re-branded Daly Double of which I had not had before. If you like/love ZD you will like/love this beer, but a clone it is not.
A Hazy light amber with a tiny cream head
S A very light aroma of citra hops and hay
T Rich and malty, but dominated by the intense hopping. Definatly Citra dry hopped with another smoky scorched pallet hop
M Rich and creamy followed by biting hops and a nice medium carbonation
O Great beer Overall smokier and more complex than most APAs easy drinking, this growler will not make through the night.

4.6/5 rDev +8.2%

16 oz. pint poured at the tap room on 12/26/13, poured into a Half Acre pint glass and drank over 30 minutes
A: 2/3 - amber-brown coloration, murky appearance (couldn't see or read through), initial frothy off-white head settled into a half finger glass lacing; tight carbonation bubbles arising off the bottom of the glass
S: 11/12 - wow, big dank, piney and resinous aroma fills it up; little detectable malt or alcohol aromas
T: 18/20 - on the anterior tongue, there is a big dank hop presence likely supplied by ample amounts of Chinook, CTZ and/or Simcoe; however, there is a Citra presence that keeps it a bit bright (and maybe more cat pissy); in the middle of the mouth, I was expecting some caramel sweetness based on the color but thankfully got little except for balance and body; dry finish with little aftertaste
M: 4/5 - moderate body for style; thick resiny hop oils luxuriously coat the tongue; subtle but present alcohol; moderate carbonation
O: 9/10 - really impressed with this one - what a dank, piney American IPA should be; really showcases Pacific NW hops that could easily be overdone; again, this is a fantastic beer for the price point ($5 pint at the brewery), and is an stellar homage to a great friend of the brewery; prosit!
TOTAL - 44/50

Space sports a copper body with gleaming gold highlights whenever any light is in the vicinity. A touch of haze runs throughout. A dirty white head rises to a finger then fades to a short cap. As it recedes chunk lacing decorates the glass and will be tough to wash off.
Oranges dressed up in every which way. Marmalade, candied peel, raw fresh. Brown sugar broiled grapefruit makes an appearance but the orange rules the roost. Pine sappy and mildly herbal. A soft toast and caramel maltiness make up the canvas. Smells juicy!
Again, the flavor profile just bursts with big, bold orange. It's sweet and bitter. Pine and grapefruit are mere support. Buttered white toast and a dash of caramel make up the base. I don't think I've had a beer in the past that packs this much orange.
The body has moderate weight but the carbonation is active and makes for a quick flow. A semi dry finish accentuates a bitterness that grows to no larger than medium. There's not a whisper of alcohol and this beer is dangerously easy to put away.
Space has been a favorite of mine since the tribute, Daly Double. A great, slammable, orange-in-your-face IPA. I appreciate this beer being on tap fairly often these days.
