Double Daisy Cutter - GalaxyDouble Daisy Cutter - Galaxy
Notes: Galaxy Double Daisy Cutter steps in-line with Riwaka Double Daisy Cutter. The process of tapping into hop varietals like horror films explore carnage. This is a Rated R Galaxy experience. A massacre of passion fruit, super ripe peach and sweet sweet Sumo orange, with Alpha bitterness clawing its way through pulp. It’s the middle of the night, it’s raining hard, the power is out, there’s a noise in the basement. Why don’t you go see what it is...

16 oz can stamped 12/21/21 SHENANIGANS.
Fluffy off-white head caps a slightly murky orange. The head recedes to a milky ring and scattered cap. Pillowy clouds of lacing. Decent retention.
Nose abounds with peach initially, but almost instantly a dank weedy note pops and tapers back a bit for some onion.
Flavor begins with a melange of tropical and weedy notes. Mango, pineapple, papaya start off. Weed an onion kick in. Some herbal spice, some bread dough, hints of melon and wet grass. There's a lot going on for sure.
Mouthfeel is a tad fluffy, fairly full for style, smooth carbonation, sometimes a bit prickly and finishes with a mild, herbal bitterness.
Overall, I like this. I wanna give it a few more shots because there is so much going on.

L - Typical unfiltered but not completely sea-monkey-see murky Half Acre haze. Decent head dissipated rather quickly.
S - Things get more interesting; immediate impressions of tropical weed, melon, bitter mango whiff, some layers here.
T- where Galaxy DDC shines, a really damn good batch of DDC (a brew I'm not typically crazy about for HA); layers and layers here, hard to discern where the lychee stops, and where citric/cat pee/melon/guava are picking up. There's a ton happening here. I don't know if this my favorite DIPA as the flavors are just complex, never settled. But it works. THe strong point for this version.
F - Good, solid, not overly carbonated and stay lively on the tongue. Great palate impact and saturation. Can feel a little heavy at the end of a pint. Darn good.
O - Maybe my favorite version of the HA DDC that has been released to date. Impressive stuff.

Umm… Ok… Well…

This one is taking Raul for a ride - I wouldn’t exactly say it’s Thelma and Louise going HAM off of a cliff, but I also wouldn’t call it Ryan Gosling doing his thing in “Drive” either. Like, whatever you think is just ok and in the middle of these two things, let’s go there.

So the damn thing poured… hazy? Da hell? OG is hella Pale Ale and West Coast looking, but here we have a beer that looks more New England than “Manny being Manny.” But as Raul does, he carries on…And the main man’s tongue is caressed with like ok haze and a bit of astringency. At this point though, Raul is getting a bit perturbed. It’s not that bad and is fairly drinkable, but so is a lukewarm Gatorade after you reach your car after a five hour hike in Joshua Tree.

A - Opaque dark tan with moderately dense, white lacing.

S - Peach and passion fruit dominate the nose.

T - Peach, passion fruit, and citrus, with a lingering fruity bitterness on the backside.

M - Big chewy body that's pillowy soft.

O - This is pretty fantastic.

Pours an almost opaque dirty straw color with over a finger of head. The nose has notes of earth and grass matched with a pungent overrippened fruity quality. The fruity flavors fade into the flavor profile which is not nearly as bold as the nose projects.

From a 16oz can:

Appearance: Cloudy yellow, good head.

Smell: Danky, pineapple, tropical, sweetness.

Taste: Big citrus with moderate bitterness, not acidic. Pretty balanced by the bitterness, so not too sweet.

Overall: Had to pick up some Half Acre while in the Quad Cities since it isn't in MN. This is a very good hazy IPA, not overly acidic and well balanced for a very hoppy beer. Half Acre does it well!

Canned 12/16/21; drank 1/4/22 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dark orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big off-white head; a thick curtain of lace.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Grapefruit juice, mild pine & faint cane sugar notes in the nose.

Grapefruit & mild grass flavors up front; dry pine bite on the finish.

Balanced, I suppose, but it all comes across as a bit harsh to me. It'll do in a pinch.

16oz can, 12.10.2021 date stamped on the bottom of the can, poured into a stemless wine glass.

The beer pours a super hazy orange and amber color, golden hues with a white head that rises a few fingers tall and has excellent retention and lacing. The aroma is wonderful, pale dough, sweet yeast, bursting with floral and tropical galaxy hops, citrusy, bright and tangy yet dank and grassy. The flavors are good, earthier and more bitter than the nose suggests, lots of dank hops, raw and green, piney and sticky with a nice orange peel and orange juice counterbalance, somewhat flora with a nice doughy base with a touch of sweet yeast and mineral water. The mouthfeel is great, coating, luscious, creamy with a dry snap and a crisp finish.

Verdict: A great IPA from Half Acre. This really reminds me of the early 2011 era batches of Galactic Double Daisy Cutter. There is such a familiar feel to the aroma, doughy, raw hop explosion that is great to re-experience. This beer is juicy, it's bitter, it's relentless with the Galaxy hops and it makes for a heck of a beer.
