Damn. Regular Daisy isn't my thing. But this was pretty spectacular.
Hop forward for a pale. Citrus tones on smell and palate. Nice full body. Excellent.

my bottle says 8% so I am wondering if the recipe has changed any since it was added in 2010?
excellent flavor. I love the pale ale style from the Midwest and this one is on target. definitely a bit stronger and worthy although I don't agree with the guy who said it tastes along the lines of Zombie Dust. has a slight twangy bitterness at the very end which lingers briefly but leaves a nice flavor on the tongue. very nice!

On tap at Half Acre, served in a pint glass.

Look- A hazy deep gold color with a generous finger of frothy egg white foam.

Smell- A mish mosh of citrus including passion fruit, grapefruit, and a hint of guava. There's an odd yeast-like aroma in the back.

Taste- Tropical juiciness loaded with passion fruit, grapefruit, and guava. A bit of malt backbone to wash it down.

Feel- Oily, resiny and slick with a bitter semi dry finish.

Overall- I love Daisy Cutter and often buy kegs for the kegerator. This is DC dialed up a notch. I find that Half Acres hop forward offerings share many of the same characteristics that keep them consistently great. They remind me of Lagunita's in that aspect. A very worthy beer!

For those of you who have had Zombie Dust, I feel that the Double Daisy Cutter is a hoppy version of Zombie Dust, which is also in my book. There is nice clear orange color with a thick head. It is very citrusy in both smell and taste. I had it for the first time last week and really enjoyed it.

Pours bright clear orange, finger white head and spotty lace. Big tropical, weedy aroma, a little spice. Taste follows with a pine and citrus punch. There's a solid caramel, dark fruit backbone, but the hops shine through the entire sip. Pine sap lingers after the sip. Medium slick mouthfeel with a little oiliness. Very tasty brew, wouldn't mind some more of this one.
