No real nose, which makes the taste that much more surprising. Solid IPA.

On-tap at Terroir Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of yeast are present in the nose along with some notes of yeast and slight bits of sourness.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy hops—grapefruit seems to stand out in particular—alogn with hints of yeast. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness and slight hints of sourness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer started off nice with some citrusy aromas and flavors but had some interesting hints of sourness and funk. It wasn't quite what I was expecting, but definitely seemed unique.

3.95/5  rDev 0%

Pours very cloudy gold color with a 1 finger creamy beige head that faded and left good spotty lacing. Smells of ripe grapefruit, pineapple, mango, orange, lemon and all things citrus hops; mixed in are strong piney hops/pine cone, caramel, graham cracker, biscuit, floral hops and a mix of mild spices. Really fresh smelling hops, it was so hoppy it was slightly off balance but still damn fine to inhale. Tastes like it smells with strong grapefruit, pineapple, mango, orange, lemon and all things citrus hops up front, with even hints if starfruit, coriander and apple skin swishing around before the toasted grains and malts kick in. Flavor has real nice blend of piney hops, caramel, graham cracker, pepper, tea leaf, a dry biscuit, floral hops, dry grass and mild floral hoppy spices. This seems dry hopped and yet hides the ABV well with just a slightly brash bitterness that is a little rough around the edges. Mouthfeel is thin and on the watery side with average carbonation, a medium body and good drinkability. Overall a very above average IPA that went down very easy.

The beer comes in a hazy amber orange.

The aroma has a bit of malt sweetness, pine, earthy, green, and grapefruit.

The flavor has lots of pine, light malt body. There is not fruit quality to pick up on, with mostly resinous pine, earthy, and spice as the hop qualities.

One of my least favorite brews from the fantastic Other Half.

Cloudy amber, small head, good lacing, a little dank, bitter, thin, fizzy, dry, pine, onion, funk, almost no citrus flavor. Almost DIPA.

Just a taste on tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. The quandry is why don't I like this beer? I'm an admitted un-hoppy guy. That's who I am. There most definately something going on here. Some good, some not so much.

Lemon merangue looking color with a slight tang, faltering head & thin body just don't do it for me. I get the fruit essences & am duly impressed, but unto itself, I keep asking what is this & why can't I like it...simply not my cuppa'

From 09/07/14 notes. 16 oz. pour for $8 at The Jeffrey in NYC.

Pours a hazy amber-burnt orange color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Citrus hops, fruity malts, bready malts. Taste is lightly bitter but mirrors the nose exactly. Medium body and low to moderate carb, light bitter bite.

Overall good but not their best IPA; I think that speaks more to how good their other (D)IPA's have been though. Nice citrus to it and easy to drink, worth checking out.

Bitter up front, but minimal flavoring hops. Mild aromatics. Much too sweet.
