BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Half Acre Beer Company
Illinois, United States
halfacrebeer.com

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 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.

Crystal clear yellow, with short white head.
Aroma is prominent and awesome. Fruity, tropical. This beer's aroma simply wins.
Taste directly follows aroma. Bitter grapefruit, hoppy, slightly crackery malt, finishes dry with some lingering bitterness.
Medium carbonation and mouthfeel.
Awesome beer.

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.
