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.

Huge. golden, slightly brown. May be most powerfully aromatic beer I've had. Loads of tropical fruit -pineapple, orange, lemon. Similar taste with a bit of that Daisy Cutter grassiness in the finish. Mouthfeel is crazy - both sticky and tangy. Went to Half Acre on release day to get this. Saw the line and drove away. A week later I found it in my local bottle shop. It was still cool from being just off the truck. Now I almost wish I'd gotten in that line so I could have more.

Made it to Half Acre for the release. Haven’t had it from the bottle yet, but got some on tap and also on cask with more Galaxy hops and Citra Hops. The cask was amazing BTW, so if you see it, try it. As for the beer itself, it poured a slightly hazy burnt orange body. Nice white frothy head. Aroma of tropical fruits, hops, almost no sweetness. Taste is very similar. Lots of fruit, good amount of bitterness, and not much sweetness, just the way I like it.
