Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We've brewed a variant of Double Daisy Cutter we're calling Galactic Double Daisy Cutter. This version highlights Galaxy hops, a bruiser grown in Australia specifically to make palates numb. This beer insisted on being a beast. Uber-hazy and jam packed with the sticky, Galaxy hops, this beer isn't for the faint of heart.

As if pulled from the core of a distant, inhospitable planet, The Galactic Double Daisy is juicy and dank, rough and tumble and beautifully ugly. Strap on your boots and pull down some of the ooze, Galactic Double Daisy is here.

A- Tallboy into a becher with a golden-peach orange body and a massive creamy white cap. This head shoots up to several inches high with good retention. A large pillow remains atop the brew indefinitely and lacing is a few thick webs forming down the glass.

S- Tropical and stone fruit hop notes off the top in an aroma that is a bit mellow for the ABV and marketing bill. Peach, mango and tangerine followed by marginal dank, pine, floral and bubble gum hops. Mint comes out late and gives it that fresh green feel.

T- Takes some time to warm up to and really, really improves drastically after a few sips. Juicy peach, mango and bitter tangerine pithy flesh with mint, melon, grass, bubble gum and papaya. Fairly sweet with a sugary sweetness and thankfully no caramelization to jab at the hops. Crackers, yeast bread and a hint of pale fruits very much beyond the hops provide a touch of balance.

MF- Light to medium bodied with a moderately high level of carbonation. The texture is fluffy and frothy on the palate nowhere near watery. Ends with a sharp, sudden citrus and grassy bitterness.

Still not getting much from the aroma, even out of the can, but the flavor develops very nicely after a few sips and some warming with tropical, dank fruits and herbs growing on the palate with each sip. Has some sweetness but it compliments the juicy fruit hops.

Gotta confess - I'm partial to that delicious Galaxy hop action, and if you are, too, this beer will knock your socks off. If you aren't, this beer will knock your socks off... Medium gold body, essentially clear with a tall ivory foam head that leaves lace drapes behind. Floral aromas of kiwi and pineapple, and bright citrus... Floral aromas of kiwi, pineapple, and bright citrus... Flavors follow suit, with something like melon, citrus, and fresh, wet grain, and a subdued funkiness of thick, dank pine... Medium-weight, smooth, tongue-coating bitterness, mild sweetness, and a clean finish... glad I've got a couple more in the fridge. Top-tier brew. 4/27/17 canning.
