Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.
Does standing in line for a beer release automatically make an American craft beer taste better? I think that the power of the mind is at work and many times it is perceived that way. I am sure I am guilty of it. This is why I tried to go into American craft beer number 267 with an open mind, putting the 45 minute wait out of mind as well as knowing that I was one of the last people that actually could get the beer since Half Acre Beer Company ran out of Galactic Double Daisy Cutter shortly after I got to the front of the line. I didn’t take my full allotment of beer as I wanted to make sure everyone behind me had a chance.
Galaxy hops is the hop that is used in Galactic Double Daisy Cutter. I believe it is a hopped from Australia, no matter, it is a complex hop with lots of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine aromas/flavors (assuming it was the only hop used in the beer). A solid hit of bitterness that might make the beer a bit unbalanced but overall made me want to run out and brew a batch of beer using the hop. Another solid one off from Half Acre.
After having my first Galactic Double Daisy Cutter I wish I would have purchased my full allotment but then I came back to my senses and I am much happier that more people had a chance at this liquid goodness because I wasn’t greedy. Enjoy!
