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!

4.03/5  rDev -5.4%

Pours an opaque brown/amber with an off-white head. Some lacing.

Strong aroma of lemon, citrus, pine, and bready malt. Really smacks you in the face.

Upfront taste of bitter citrus, lemon/lemon zest. Bready malt middle. Bitter finish of citrus and lemon. Light sweetness at times too. Lingering flavor of bready malts with a slight citrus bitterness.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Creamy/foamy finish.

Nice citrusy aroma and flavor ... fairly lemony. Good bitterness. Not a fan of the foamy finish--makes the mouthfeel seem too heavy.

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.

Poured a nice clean dark amber/copper with a lightly thick and sticky off white head.

The smell is very english, with what seems like touches of fuggles and goldings and a nice bready malt smell, some nice citrus tones come through as well.

The flavor is very bready and malty with a clean pine hoppyness running throughout. I'm loving the heavy english crystal in this along with what seems to be a nice even level of chinook hops making this clean and piney, and a nice medium bitterness.

The mouthfeel is clean and dry with a touch of resin.

Very nice, I like this a bunch. Different enough to stand out in the crowded IPA segment, yet still drinkable and good without resorting to anything gimmicky.

Hazy golden orange with an inch of white head and sticky lacing. It has a nice contiuous effervescent stream of carbonation.

Smells of tropical fruit, peach, and pine. The malt is bready and brown sugar sweet It's very aromatic.

It has a pretty good balance of hop and malt, bitter and sweet. The pine is a bit more resinous than in the smell. Orange and peach. It has a sweet backing from the malt. The finish has a slight touch of dish soap and is very bitter.

Good carbonation, but the mouthfeel has an astringency that dries out my tongue. Medium body.

This is a re-review and I scored it out much higher than when I had it from the bottle. At least from my notes, the flavor and aroma were more pronouncedthis time around.
