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!

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.

i liked space better than their other, lighter, more tropical ipa. this one is pretty awesome, with some red color to it and quite a bit more body than the other one. the head is tall and just off white, sticking high to the sides of the glass. citra hops or some similar varietal seem do be the dominant hop in this one, fruity and a little tangy and really forward. the malt is a little sweet for me in the taste, my only real critique, but i like what it adds in terms of depth and body, and its not like so many over balanced hoppy beers, its dosed correctly. i get a little more hop aromatic than flavor in this, suggesting a heavy dry hop. citrus is there, but its more mellow than juicy i think, and maybe thats do do with the sweetness of the malt. yeast is nondescript, and the beer finishes dry enough despite the front and middle. mellower carbonation than some of the other half acre brews, but it slows it down i think and suits it well. excellent beer, i think perhaps a tad bit inflated on the ratings, but really well done on the whole. drinkable for miles, even at 7% abv.

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.

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.
