BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Half Acre Beer Company
Illinois, United States

Style: American 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.

On tap. I have wanted to try this one for a while I had it after a New England IPA and boy you can tell the difference. Clearer and almost copper. There is some actual balance of flavors too. It's fun having a more tradition strong IPA every now and then now. It feels like options are becoming less and less available.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color—a little too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly settled down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface and a collar consisting of medium sized bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dank passionfruit are present in the nose along with underlying notes of biscuit and caramel malts.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of dankness with notes of grapefruit, passionfruit and biscuit malts. No alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Imperial IPA has a good balance between the hops and malts. It is quite drinkable considering its strength.

This thing manages to be so complex in flavor yet so simply delicious. A new favorite for me because of its great balance of grassiness, citrus, hops, and even a bit of honey? It's hard to pass this one up, snag it if you come across it.
