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!

16 oz. pint poured at the tap room on 12/26/13, poured into a Half Acre pint glass and drank over 30 minutes

A: 2/3 - amber-brown coloration, murky appearance (couldn't see or read through), initial frothy off-white head settled into a half finger glass lacing; tight carbonation bubbles arising off the bottom of the glass

S: 11/12 - wow, big dank, piney and resinous aroma fills it up; little detectable malt or alcohol aromas

T: 18/20 - on the anterior tongue, there is a big dank hop presence likely supplied by ample amounts of Chinook, CTZ and/or Simcoe; however, there is a Citra presence that keeps it a bit bright (and maybe more cat pissy); in the middle of the mouth, I was expecting some caramel sweetness based on the color but thankfully got little except for balance and body; dry finish with little aftertaste

M: 4/5 - moderate body for style; thick resiny hop oils luxuriously coat the tongue; subtle but present alcohol; moderate carbonation

O: 9/10 - really impressed with this one - what a dank, piney American IPA should be; really showcases Pacific NW hops that could easily be overdone; again, this is a fantastic beer for the price point ($5 pint at the brewery), and is an stellar homage to a great friend of the brewery; prosit!

TOTAL - 44/50

Space sports a copper body with gleaming gold highlights whenever any light is in the vicinity. A touch of haze runs throughout. A dirty white head rises to a finger then fades to a short cap. As it recedes chunk lacing decorates the glass and will be tough to wash off.

Oranges dressed up in every which way. Marmalade, candied peel, raw fresh. Brown sugar broiled grapefruit makes an appearance but the orange rules the roost. Pine sappy and mildly herbal. A soft toast and caramel maltiness make up the canvas. Smells juicy!

Again, the flavor profile just bursts with big, bold orange. It's sweet and bitter. Pine and grapefruit are mere support. Buttered white toast and a dash of caramel make up the base. I don't think I've had a beer in the past that packs this much orange.

The body has moderate weight but the carbonation is active and makes for a quick flow. A semi dry finish accentuates a bitterness that grows to no larger than medium. There's not a whisper of alcohol and this beer is dangerously easy to put away.

Space has been a favorite of mine since the tribute, Daly Double. A great, slammable, orange-in-your-face IPA. I appreciate this beer being on tap fairly often these days.

Pours deep clear amber in color with some slight red hues. Head is about 1 finger and has nice retention.

Smell is great, lots of citrus hops forward. Grapefruit is the main aroma that dominates this beer but there are also some hints of pine and herbal hops. There is a nice grainy mildly sweet smelling malt aromas that helps balance the beer.

Taste is also great. More pine comes out in the taste then in the nose however there is also a nice mildly sweet citrus and herbal hop presence. Bitterness is mild and balanced nicely with a nice grainy body.

Mouthfeel is good lots of hoppy oils and a medium to light body. Moderate carbonation keeps this soft and very drinkable.

Overall this is a good ipa. Love the grapefruit aromas and it's well balanced grainy malt body.
