Thanks to Mike Campbell for delivering this 20oz bottle of IPA goodness to me at Barry-Roubaix! I have tired the regular Half Acre Daisy Cutter Pale Ale thanks to Jen and Jeremy and really enjoyed it. Both are very different from most of the Pales or IPA’s I tend to like. Centennial, 2-Hearted, Humma, etc all seem to be more citrusy, piney. Regular Daisy and Double Daisy are definitely grassier, and more foral. The Double pours a orange-gold with a nice frothy head but almost no lacing on the glass. Smell is grassy hops, hemp, lemony and a little malt. Taste is very bitter up front, subdued malt, and a grassy/floral hop aftertaste. It does not have an alcohol bite to it which I tend to prefer in my doubles. Mouthfeel is medium, very drinkable. 8% is dangerous for me since I don’t feel the need to sip it and then get in trouble after 3 or 4 beer 🙂 Can’t wait for the Gravel Metric in Illinois next month. I plan to have a few of these down there and bring a bunch home since it isn’t distributed in Michigan.
ed. Note the kick ass bottle opener collection!
