COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Space, an India Pale Ale that we brewed a version of before, but under the name Daly Double. This beer is a tribute to a friend that passed away last year. Space was his nickname as a young man and this beer will be a regular offering at our brewery only; our way of keeping him a regular.

Its with great honor and sadness that we announce an upcoming special release beer. Were brewing The Daly Double, an India Pale Ale brewed in memoriam of a friend of Half Acre Beer Co.Terry Daly passed away suddenly after spending a lot of time at our brewery over the last few years. Terry was a fan of music, geometry, his two Huskies, Moon & Luna, and amply hopped craft beer. Were pretty sure that Terry was the foremost consumer of Daisy Cutter Pale Ale. Terry began popping in to buy sixtels of Daisy and before long he stopped by almost everyday just to chew the fat. After a while, he had the authority to walk back into the brewery and go into the cold room to reserve himself kegs and manage his own kegerator inventory for his home Daisy Cutter supply. Being a bright dude, we put him to work wiring things or lending a hand doing whatever needed to be done. Hed turn others on to our beer and took pride in his connection to our brewery. All good breweries acquire people. These people become the larger body that is the meat of your brewing company. Not the tanks or the beers, but the heart of what we do. It has a pulse of its own and its one of the best things about brewing beer for a living. The Daly Double is for Terry and all the other folks that give breweries life . To Terry, Huzzah!

Delicious! Creamy head. Bright, amber color. Beautiful hop bouquet on the nose. Nicely balanced with a bright floral hop overtone and nice malt balance.

A floral aroma that is quite nice. This IPA is much fruitier and lighter in body than the Vallejo. Still has good bitterness in the back end.

Draft. Amber copper. Has a nice hop taste. A mango dry piney taste. Has a orangey mango taste. Not a typical IPA. This is excellent.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a relatively clear orange amber with a medium sized beige head. Gentle earthy citrus on the nose, thick malty background. Medium bodied, soft malt and a nice soft grapefruit note. Gentle grapefruit and citrus into the finish, a hint of alcohol peeks out at the end.

Hazy orange. Mango aroma but its very light. Boozy, bitter, medicinal and astringent. Pune needle intensity. Lingering bitter finish

ben4321 (5550) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Draft at the brewery, 10/28/15. Slightly resiny on the nose. Some malt notes come through s will. Orange with a bubbly beige head and fairly heavy lace. Nice hop presence overall. Good beer, enjoyed the Gone Away more personally, but this is tasty too.

pablo951 (624) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2015
This is a tasty little morsel by the Half Acre Crew. Plus a deep copper hue with a thin white head and deep caramel malt aroma. The taste matches the aroma with side order of a hop assault to your jowls and solar plexus.

Homer321 (4020) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Draft at half. Huge citrus nose with a light pepper bite. Light caramel. Taste is more malt forward than nose would lend you to believe. Overall the hood seem a bit muted. Malt forward. Not my bag.

Atom (2110) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2015
On tap at half acre taproom, pours a hazy Amber/orang with a large off-white head. Big citrus hop aroma, grapefruit and orange, light pine and malt. Citrus hops dominate with a mild resinous pine lightly floral with a steady malt base. Well done and drinkable!

blipp (7904) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Draft. Pours amber orange with a white head. Fruity hops, mild malty sweetness, some citric and grassy notes, and a lightly bitter finish. Pretty good.
