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.

It’s with great honor and sadness that we announce an upcoming special release beer. We’re 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. We’re 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. He’d 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!

On tap at the taproom. Orange golden with a white thin head. Juicy pine citrus aroma. Fresh juicy pine and citrus flavors. A lasting bitterness lingers. Some earthiness is an under note that muddles the flavors. Still juicy and tasty.

Pailhead (5036) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of dank citrus, grapefruit, light lemon, and toasty notes. It’s a hazy (bordering on cloudy brownish-orange with a small beige head that has a soapy film and lacing. The flavor starts with a light toasted caramel with a touch of fruit. The finish has light-moderate dank hops, grapefruit, and a touch of florals. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty, but a little too much caramel for my IPA preferences.

A lovely copper color which is my preferred color for an IPA. A big citra hop bouquet. Medium bodied with a tongue scraping carbonation. You get the chocolate dark malt hit then a citrus punch for an effective one-two combination.
