BEER INFO

Brewed by:
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.

Deep gold in color, great clarity. Two fingers of brilliant white foam with large bubbles. Retention is good, lacing is average. Aroma is big galaxy hops. Dank, earthy, grassy, and some tropical fruit. Slightly peppery. Some cracker-like malt aroma as well. The taste follows closely, dank, earthy, notes of tropical fruit. Strong malt backbone as well. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Moderately strong bitterness on the finish, somewhat dry. Overall, an excellent offering from Half Acre.

Pours a murky, foggy orange with two and a half fingers of white foam. Good head retention with a few swirls of lacing left behind. Aroma is lemongrass, citrus, with a biscuit malt base. Flavor profile provides notes of lemongrass, citrus, and peach with earthy and biscuity malts. Mouth feel is medium with a fine graininess in the texture. Overall, a good solid pale ale that features a good dose of hops and malts. Nice hearty quality to this beer, with a good dose of flavor that doesn't overwhelm the senses.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

I think I enjoy the regular Double Daisy Cutter a lot more.
