Tropicalia, Creature Comfort’s year-round IPA has truly taken the southeast by storm.

Posted in Don't Miss This, Half Acre Brewing, Seasonal Return

Now is the only time you’ll get Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter this year

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter 2018

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter, the bigger, boozier version of the brewery’s pale ale returns today for the only time this year.

As the name suggests, Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter is a bigger version of the brewery’s Daisy Cutter with fewer boundaries. It carries all the big citrus and grassy notes of the year-round pale ale, but with more hops and an amplified malt presence.

Usually brewed quarterly, Double Daisy Cutter is a Chicago favorite.

A monster version of the original Daisy Cutter Pale Ale. A heftier grain bill amps up the weight and double dry hopping insures there’s enough grit to recede your gums.

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter was first brewed in 2010. Since then, it appears a few times a year. Available in 16-ounce 4-pack cans.

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Distribution: IL, WI, Philadelphia, NYC
Debut (Cans): 3/3/17
Latest Return: 8/3/18

8.5% ABV
