Bad Apple

Daisy Cutter is set in front of me and with it comes a hazy golden body with moderate peach highlights. The bone white head is about one finger in height with the creaminess of frothed milk and shows excellent staying power. Chunky spider webbed lacing gets left behind after each gulp.

The nose on Daisy Cutter is super tropical with notes of mango, first and foremost, followed by papaya and some other tropical goodness. Freshly cut grass has its fingerprints all over the aroma of this APA as well; basically there are fistfuls of hops in this beauty. The malt base is very lightly caramel and somewhat biscuity allowing the hops to be the showcase.

The flavor picks up where the aroma left off. Tropical fruit sweetness get things going over the top of that light caramel and sweet biscuity malt base. Mid palate comes with the buzzsaw bitterness of the grassy hops and the bitterness grows through the swallow. There's a squeeze of lemon on the back end that works superbly. This is a hop bomb of an APA and done just to my liking.

Daisy Cutter has a moderate body with carbonation that's lively enough to push it through at a healthy pace. The bitterness on the back of the tongue continues to grow with each drink and actually gets up there pretty damn high for an APA.

The drinkability is ridiculously high. It has a great hop bite with low enough abv to put away a few pints in a sitting without a problem and there's a refreshing quality that keeps it flowing.

Watch out Alpha King, we have a new crown in town. Daisy Cutter is one of my best beer finds of the last couple months and the best pale ale I've ever come across. If you run across this on tap make sure to grab two pints, the first will disappear before you know it.
