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.

Holy aroma batman! This beer is bursting with galaxy! It pours a nice hazy golden color. I'm not sure if I'm smelling a beer or if I'm smelling a handful of galaxy hops. Overwhelmingly delicious citrus fruity smell and it tastes just like it smells. This is a hop bomb but it's not overly bitter and it's extremely well balanced. Great carbonation. I just tried daisy cutter for the first time, and after being underwhelmed by it I was expecting something similar with this. I got the exact opposite with GD daisy cutter, this beer is underrated if anything. Very well done and I will be seeking this out again for sure
