Originally brewed under the name Daly Double. This beer is a tribute to a friend that passed away. Space was his nickname as a young man and this beer will be a regular offering at our brewery only; our way of keeping him a regular.

Growler poured into a FFF tulip

A - Deep, reddish brown with orange tint. Small layer of foam on the side.

S - Floral with sweet citrus, pineapple, light orange peel, and sweet strawberry. Very nice, complex and strong nose.

T - Slight pine bitterness with nice orange citrus in the middle. The strawberry comes in the middle to give it a nice sweetness. The floral and a slight bitterness that comes in the finish.

MF - Light body with light carbonation in it. Slight hop resin remains on the tongue in the finish.

O - Nice light hoppy beer with a lot of flavor. I like the strawberry and red fruits with the floral aspect. The strawberry fruit makes me wonder if they threw in Galaxy hops to get that flavor.

Enjoyed on tap at the Half Acre tap room. Served in a bulb tulip.

A: Pours a dark amber color with a tooth colored head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to thin film that leaves stick sheets of lace down the glass.

S: Flower and full of citrus up front. As it warms some light caramel malts come out to play providing a nice background sweetness.

T: Little grapefruit bitterness with a light caramel malt body. The finish is fruity, citrusy and slightly sweet from the malts.

M: Medium to light bodied with a sticky sweet finish. Pretty juicy, but easily drinkable with a medium carbonation level.

O: I definitely enjoyed this beer. Nicely balanced and easily drinkable, what more could you ask for?

On tap at the Half Acre taproom grand opening, served in a pint glass.

Pour: Dark orange with a finger plus of off white sticky head. Pretty thick. Leaves heavy, thick lacing.

Smell: Pretty grassy hops, with some pine and citrus mixed in. Earthy malt profile is interesting.

Taste: Malt forward, big time. Very caramelly, with some pine to balance. Meh.

Mouthfeel: Too much malt makes for a cloying mouthfeel.

Overall: Too balanced of an IPA for my tastes. Fans of two hearted and ambers will find this beer enjoyable.

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.
