BEER INFO

Half Acre Beer Company
Illinois, United States

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.

Pours a slightly clouded golden-amber color with a bubbly big head.

Smell is defined by weedy, honeyed water melon, certainly showing a well developed malt backbone, but also a unique, intriguing hoppiness. Blueberries, a hint of lemon zest, wet leaves and white bread dough with a nice weed resin atop form the nose on this.

Soft, fuller bodied, sweet, effervescent with a dry bite - well composed and ever changing on the palate.

A velvet mouthfeel brings malts, ice bonbon, blueberries and a melon dankness to the palate, coated by well nuanced rock sugars. Develops a subtle dry bite onwards from mid palate, a note of lime pulp, more melon, grass and a well nuanced, doughy maltiness. Finishes as soft as it began, with a tongue tingling hop impact, soothed by cakey malts.

Versatile, with a well developed flavor profile, which at the same time drinks astonishing easy. Not entirely relying on the hops, since this unfolds a well working malt backbone, from which the hops benefit throughout.

Poured cold from a 16oz can dated 5/13/17 into an IPA glass. A wee baby at fours day old.

Yields a crystal clear light amber- dark straw color with a big three finger head. Leaves some thick gloppy lacing.

Aroma is just wow. Reminds me of a TG IPA yet creamier and slightly more subtle on the fruitiness. Lots of pineapple, orange, mango, pears, and grapefruit. Zero booze noticeable.

Taste is slightly more bitter than the nose prepared me for. Lots of aforementioned fruit with hops and malts as well.

Feel is light and creamy. Slightly dry finish. A bit watery for the ABV is my only complaint.

Overall, so very well done. Booze is so well hidden behind a lovely bouquet of fruit, hops, and malts.
