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.

22oz bomber picked up from the brewery by a friend for $8. Poured into two snifters at 44* and shared with my girlfriend.

Appearance (4.5): Pours a dark orange with copper edges. A finger and a half of light cream head reduces to a thin layer with a thick ring and some bubbles on the surface. Not quite clear due to chill haze and plenty of streamers. Lots of sticky, thick lacing all around the glass at the top and spots here and there further down.

Aroma (5): Pine bomb. A smooth caramel mixes beautifully with some mild citrus notes such as tangerine. Lots of dank, resinous pine notes that smell a lot like weed; imagine a really fresh bag of orange and white haired buds. Girlfriend says earthiness and leaves; reminds her of fall. Unique and well integrated.

Taste (4.5): Strong caramel and toffee malt backbone right off the bat. It was there in the nose, but it's surprisingly strong and well balanced. Hops are not what I would call subtle, but not pronounced; they round the beer out nicely and show up throughout each sip, particularly through the finish with some strong pine and grapefruit/orange notes. A touch of sweetness throughout balanced by a nice dose of bitterness - neither dominates. Again, not the hop bomb the nose indicates, but that resinous, dank character hits pretty hard in the middle and lingers forever.

Mouthfeel (5): Smooth and a touch creamy, especially in the finish. Ample carbonation brings out that nice hoppy finish. Medium bodied on the full side and medium carbonation also on the high side, especially for a bigger IPA like this.

Overall (5): A fantastic IPA that is unique in that it's balanced yet the hops still shine with some nicely different flavors that don't always dominate other hops profiles - dank, resinous, pine and more subtle citrus. This benefits from being super fresh, and I hope they bottle more at some point. Bravo.
