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!

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

I'd like to make it a true Daly Double, Half Acre... (Wow, that was pretty bad...sorry...) This stuff pours a clear sunrise amber-gold topped by a finger or so of white foam. The nose comprises mandarin oranges, light peach, light mango, very light pine, ruby red grapefruit zest, mild caramel, and a light touch of cilantro. The taste holds notes of ruby red grapefruit, caramel, light biscuit, cilantro, orange zest, light lemon zest, light pine sap, very light wintergreen, and a hint of passion fruit. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a very nice IPA, one that maintains some semblance of balance despite the explosion of tropical fruity hops. Good times.

Dark rusty orange, with a slight haze to it. Compact layer of white sudsy foam that has a creamy meringue sheen to it's surface. Tendrils of lace stick to the walls of the glass.

Pungent hop aroma, catty and leafy green. Some earthy tropical papaya and light traces of herbal eucalyptus in the background. Less fruity than a growler sample a few weeks ago.

Soft pale malt breadiness, very similar to Daisy Cutter, with a bit more hop intensity: grassy, chive, papaya, overall a pretty interesting blend. Trace malt sweetness and lingering resinous bitterness that sticks with you for awhile. Medium bodied and very drinkable, though a bit similar to Half Acre's tried & true repertoire of IPA/APA's. Seems like a twist on Tasty Waves, or Daisy Cutter with amped up malt and hop bills.

This one is for Terry, rest in peace.

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

Growler shared by Chris (spycow). Served in Captain Lawrence tulip.

A - An ample white foam settles to a thick cap, thicker collar, and a few splotches of lace. Surprisingly dark and hazy orange-brown body.

S - Some nice pine and citrus hops, lots of tropical fruits, a bit of sugar cookie malt, and a hint of earthy and herbal undertones. I initially thought this was a Nelson Sauvin beer, but apparently it's Falconer's Flight, Citra, and Warrior.

T - Tropical fruits, a bit of the chive note I get from Citra hops, plenty of sweet malt, caramel, and sugary sweetness. More balanced than the aroma suggests with surprisingly low bitterness.

M - Medium body, chewy, smooth texture, and a dry, crisp finish. No alcohol presence, and nice soft medium-low carbonation.

D - Another hoppy winner from Half Acre and a fitting tribute to a loyal customer. I may have to go pick up a few more bottles of this one before it's gone. Hopefully this will make it in to semi-regular production.

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.

Great head and residual foam. Thick and sticky. Faintly hazey copper color with good bubbling.

Dry, earthy, musty yeast and bitter orangey, citric hop peel aromas. The smell is resiny, but bright and energizing.

Syrupy, sticky palate with lots of citric peel bitterness from start to finish. Toasted biscuit and cracker malts balance this hoppy beer, somewhat. Earthy, musty, and yeasty mouthfeel and flavor profile as well. This is an interesting DIPA. This is a great beer. To bad its just a one off.
