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 pallets numb.

Can to taster (thanks Bunker). Looks good and smells AWESOME! The best hop nose next to Heady Topper (and very similar)! Tastes solid and is nice on the palate. Good stuff!!!

On tap at the revolution party. Hazed orange beige head. Citrus dough notes. Pine. Similar to daisy with pine and pale malts. But sweeter with some booze. Ok, I was hoping for a bit more. 8/4/7/3/15 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. First reviewed 8/23/2011. Poured from a 64 oz. growler into a tulip. Thanks to Dunt for bringing this over. This is a murky, hazy, beast of a beer, I can tell already. Unfiltered golden color with a decent creamy white foam head on top. Retains reasonably well, I imagine it fades a bit more quickly because it is from a growler. Galactic Double Daisy Cutter has a fairly pungent bitter hoppy aroma supported by a biscuity, bready pale malt aroma. Some grapefruit, but a lot of grassy hay notes, a bit of herbal hops, and a touch of pine. The taste starts with a very light honey malt sweetness and some nice biscuity malt. A slew of hop flavors quickly overload the malt. Strongly bitter, there is a moderate amount of grapefruit, with a great balance of pine, hay, and herbal flavors mixed in. The finish has a nice bitterness. The mouthfeel is grainy, a little sticky and resiny, with medium carbonation and a fuller than medium body. Nice and tingly hops throughout. This definitely grows on me as the glass progresses. The complexity of the Galaxy hops take a little while to become apparent, but the reward is worth it.

(22oz bottle from jcnd9803. Thanks Jon!). I’ve been looking forward to trying this one for awhile. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange color--almost like a widmer hefeweizen. Has a thick, fluffy off-white head that leaves some sticky lacing. Aroma has resin, mango, tropical fruits and a bit of vegetal notes. Taste is sweet malt backbone with awesome mango and tropical fruit notes. The bitterness is pretty sharp, but it does mellow. Full bodied with a thick texture. Nice balanced finish between sweet and bitter. Probably past its prime, but still really, really nice. The fruit notes are out of this world!

Bottle. A nice IIPA. Hazy yellowish/orange pour with a white head. Pine and citrusy hop aromas. Well balanced with pine, citrus, and grapefruit hop flavors that are held in check by a sturdy caramel malt backbone...

bottle courtesy of bauermj, thanks man! pours a very hazy hefe or gueze like yellow, totally opaque. smallish creamy oreange white head that leaves decent lacing and spotting in my half acre pint glass, also courtesy of bauermj, lol! huge amounts of mango in the nose, then grapefruit, then some slightly musty hefe like malts too. the flavor is very nice as well, tons of mango, sweet and tart citrus, just a delicious brew, tastes like a japanese mango soda or something.
