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.

Classic optics, head perhaps was a bit lacking. Aroma is rather sweet, lots of sugar / stevia smells mixed with some earthy, grassy hops. Good taste, Galaxy hops add a semi bitter citrus rind flavor, sweeter malt flavors, grassy hop cone at the end. Clean and precise.

Poured 16oz can into snifter. Bright and hazy orange colored with a 2.5 finger foamy head. Retention is great and there is sufficient lacing. Nice floral and tropical, citrus hop notes. Plenty of passion fruit, guava and some mango along with orange and citrus. There is bitterness, but more of a pith bitterness. Some caramel and honey sweetness round it off. Big tropical fruit and tangerine, with mangos, passion fruit flavors. Malts of caramel and honey are in the middle to balance this out. Finish is more of the citrus bitter. Good carbonation, medium bodied with a slick feel. Half Acre makes'em and I drink'em.

Glowing orange-amber with a moderate off-white foam.

I'm getting floral notes with lemon, and bittersweet orange rind with tart gummy bears, cannabis, and grass, finishing with a dry chew.

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.
