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!

Pint poured at the taproom on Saturday, 6 September 2014.

Pours ruby, clear, with a beige head. Smell is surprisingly muted, but bright and hoppy. Very nice.

Taste has a surprising and pleasant caramel nature -- very piney. I might call this a red IPA or an Imperial Red Ale.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and dry. Overall excellent.

Poured on tap at Half Acre in a lovely 13oz goblet/tulip (?) pours a dark orange ambery orange with white foamy head with a slight reddish hue

Nose: candy caramel malt, orange, bright flowers, pineapple/papaya

Taste: orangey hop zest, subtle mint, muddled tropical fruits, bready malt with a soft nuttiness lingering (cashew seems very keen as Jason noted), some pine and tropic hop zest lingering

Feel: medium bodied, smooth, zesty, easy drinkin, fragrant

Wonderful IPA. Well balanced and delicious
