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.

Growler shared at JO’s. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy spruce citrus hoppy aroma. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a oily slick texture. Moderate alcohol bite at the finish. Very good brew.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2012 had this on tap and it poured a nice light orange color with a good foamy head. very aromatic and fresh aromas of hops, citrus’, floral tones and some bits of orange peels. medium bodied with a lot of depth on the flavors and feel. This is a real quality double IPA.

Growler shared by a BA @ Jackie O’s. Pours a hazy orange color with a smaller white head. The aroma is all about the hops: resiny, tropical fruit, pineapple and mango with earthy notes sneaking through here and there. The flavor has more of the same; tropical fruits, grapefruit, resiny and mango create a strong lasting bitterness. Enough of a malt backbone to provide a good base. I enjoyed this more than the original Double Daisy Cutter.

Bomber thanks to 17thfloor and Half Acre for sharing. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange with a small creamy white head. Aroma of sweet citric fruits, guava, grapefruit, tropical, a bit grassy. Flavor is very creamy fruit notes, almost like a sweet orange/guava/apricot juice. There is light bitterness in the finish, which lingers along with a note of grassiness sweet malts. Medium to medium full body and a soft carbonation. Interesting beer, great new hop character

Bottles thanks to the lovely people at HA. Love that hop haze. Huge peachy and tropical fruit aroma. Flavor follows, medium bitterness in the finish, love that fresh cut grass flavor, way more tropical than other daisy cutter variants, lightly toasty biscuity malt. Carbonation is sizzling, well attenuated.

(22 oz. bottle via trade with pantanap, thanks Kan!) Pours cloudy apricot with a stiff, sticky off-white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruit juice. Mouthfeel soft and smooth. Flavor of citrus-grapefruit-light lemon hoppiness over some warm caramel. Strong bitter bite in finish. Tasty.

Bottle shared with mtjoseph. An awesome thanks to tytoanderso for hooking us up with this bottle. Murky orange color. Almost like pulpy-ass orange juice. A small white head quickly fades to just a little collar of foam. Spotty lacing. Huge lighter fruit character in the aroma, and some citrus comes out too. What is this, fucking peach? Apricot? Whatever it is it is amazing. First sip impressions are a little bit of a let down. Still more peach notes, but still this is a bit sweeter than hoped for. Some orange shows up too. More lighter fruit character develops as this warms up. Fairly light on the tongue, and not bitter at all. I want more Half Acre. They just are a killer fucking brewery!!

Bomber courtesy of tytoanderso. Pours a dirty, murky, lake water orange with almost no head what so ever. BIG, bright aroma of fresh unpeeled oranges, grapefruit, and hint of grass. Wow, smells like I should be drinking this for breakfast. Flavors of fresh squeezed orange juice, some tropical fruit in the malt, slight (almost flat soda like) effervescence. Light bodied, fruity, wonderful. No real bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is completely masked.

Thanks to Sean9689 and johnbjaeger for getting me out bottles of this. Served in a Mikasa tulip. Pours a nice bright peach color with a small white head that lasted for a bit before falling into a thin cap with a bit of lacing. Nice tropical notes in the nose. Plenty of mango with a bit of orange in the background. Flavor is orange, pineapple, and mango hops with a bit of booze. Light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Semi-bitter finish with some alcohol. Pretty good, but nowhere near HF Galaxy.
