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!

9 hours in a car yesterday to and from Chicago, too much money spent, and this is the first beer from the trip that I'm going to enjoy. Snagged a howler at Half Acre, pouring into a Spiegelau glass.

A: Pours a crystal clear dark golden color with a slight copper tone. About 2 fingers of white foamy head that reduces slow, and leaves a fair amount of lacing.
S: Not a bomb, but a very well balanced citrus and spice combo. Some lingering sweetness in the background.
T: Nothing really takes lead on the flavor. I get citrus, I get spices and pine, and malty base, but not a single flavor pops. It seems to favor citrus at first, and as it warms up a but it seems to favor pine.
M: Sweet and smooth! Goes down fairly sweet, not much bitterness to speak of. My only complaint about this is it does feel a bit thin.
O: Very solid offering from Half Acre, glad I was able to try it. When I was there, it wasn't available in the Tap Room, just the shop next door. One of my favorite IPAs from Chicago to date, would love to see this available in cans!

Just got back from Half Acre Brew with a large haul but had to crack open the Space growler immediately. At first taste at the store I thought it was eerily similar to 3F Zombie Dust, apparently this is the re-branded Daly Double of which I had not had before. If you like/love ZD you will like/love this beer, but a clone it is not.

A Hazy light amber with a tiny cream head

S A very light aroma of citra hops and hay

T Rich and malty, but dominated by the intense hopping. Definatly Citra dry hopped with another smoky scorched pallet hop

M Rich and creamy followed by biting hops and a nice medium carbonation

O Great beer Overall smokier and more complex than most APAs easy drinking, this growler will not make through the night.

Serving type: growler

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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

Serving type: on-tap
