4.46/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 16 oz can dated 8/28/2015 into nonic pint.

A: Pours a clear light golden orange with 2-3 finger white head. Nice retention and some slight lacing.

S: Mango, pineapple, tangerines, and grapefruit. Fresh cut grass and pine needles.

T: Nice citrus punch with pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. Some piney hops, and a faint sweetness but well controlled for the ABV.

M: Medium body and average carbonation. Finish is slightly dry, and alcohol is apparent but welcome.

O: Another great beer from Other Half. (529 characters)

4.43/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark orange with fluffy head that lingers. Minimal lacing. Aroma is fresh cut grass, tangerines, passion fruit, and pineapple all drenched in resinous pine sap. Taste is more pine sap and grass. Resinous. Dank. The fruit is almost overwhelmed, but sweet citrus and passion fruit are present leaving behind a bitter aftertaste of grapefruit pith. Overall, the flavor is more dank than bitter. As it warms, a caramel sweetness develops. The mouth feel is full bodied, but dry at the same time which makes it a much easier drinking than you may have guessed from the review so far. I like how they have ramped up the ABV while avoiding the syrupy, cloying sweetness of other beers in the style. The dank, grassy aroma and flavor make this a unique experience. Its worth trading for. (787 characters)

Quick dissipating head, nose is very subtle with hints of floral and citrus. Feel and finish is shockingly smooth for a triple IPA. Little to no bitterness. Well done! (167 characters)

One of my favorite beers I've tried from other half which never seems to disappoint. Well built beer. Pours a hazy orange. Lots of hops with fruit notes. The strength of the beer is well masked so it's drinkable, and you'll definitely feel it after. World class for sure. (271 characters)

Received as an extra in a trade. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a clearish amber gold hue with a thin head that fades quickly.

S - Aromas of mango, passionfruit, tangerine, melon, citrus, pine, pine sap. Super fruity and juicy. Nice dankness too.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Lots of pine sap. Nice tropical notes, absolutely loads of passionfruit. The citrus is pleasant, however, there is a hot finish from the alcohol.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit hot on the finish, however, it's really juicy and not sticky.

O - Overall this beer, while good really didn't live up to the expectations. Lots of great things going on, however, the dank pine sap is really not my scene. Good, just too much dankness.

Had this on tap at Tørst in Brooklyn.

Pours orange with some bubbly lacing, smells super green and dank. Tropics, resin, citrus, pine, it's all there. Taste not as fruity and flowery as the nose, but appropriately bitter. A great beer, I would drink anytime. (263 characters)

4.49/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Dark orange body with a white foamy head that easily slips from the sides of the tulip glass it has been poured into. The body is lighter than Hop Showers, solid, and even colored orange compared to some of their other IPAs.
Smell: Candied fruit and citrus aroma up front. Some watered down orange juice smell. Sharp hop smells linger. I could almost smell some rubbing alcohol. That would actually be interesting. I have not drank rubbing alcohol since I was in alcohol rehab in the military.
Taste: BOOM! BAM! SMACK! This has a good balanced taste, with gentle sweetness, that does not overwhelm your taste buds. Where's the alcohol?
Feel: Thick and heavy in the chomper.

Overall - Over the past few days, from Other Half, I have had Galaxy IPA, Nelson, Green Diamonds, and Hop Showers. I am glad I saved the best for last. This one is a hit with me. This is high octane...well, it should be if it is supposed to be a triple. This is a beer to seek out. A contender in the IPA bracket. (1,025 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a slightly cloudy copper orange color, with a white frothy head. The odor is strong, mango, peach, orange, lemon, pineapple, grapefruit, resin, slight onion, slightly salty, slight floral, tropical fruits, passion fruit, slight strawberry. The taste is a crisp, resin, malty, grapefruit peel, slight onion, pineapple, bitter dry finish. (344 characters)

Drank on tap at Other Half Brewing Company in Brooklyn, NY.

This one pours a nice hazy and bright dark orange, with a small head, and a lot of lacing.

Smells just so pungent, bright and awesome, a veritable slew of citrusy hop goodness- mango and peach, grapefruit and tangerine, just so much. I get some pine as well.

They really just nailed this one- it's possibly the best IPA made in New York State. There is some malt character, it adds a small amount of sweetness and enough heft behind the hops. But all in all- it's still a story of massive juicy hops here. This manages to pack a ton of the aforementioned fruity hops flavors, without getting too sweet. There's also not a single taste of alcohol in this one- how is that even possible? This is one dangerous beer.

This has a very juicy and full mouthfeel, with a pretty thick and slightly creamy body, and a moderate level of carbonation.

This is an absolutely wonderful beer, a tremendous joy to drink. (969 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

L - Glowing dark orange with two fingers of white head

S - Mango and peach with mossy hops and some cedar

T - Bitter hops, peach juice, pine, sap, onion, garlic, sticky resin

F - Full and syrupy, but carbonation moves everything along. No alcohol presence.

O - Best OH beer I've had so far. Dangerously drinkable. Good combo of eat and west coast. (351 characters)

super fruity an dank aroma, really hits the nose like crazy. a little grassy but nice malt presence, and a huge wallop of bitterness and juicy fruity notes. you guys sure its 10.5%? feels more like 6%. world class, gives heady a real run for its money (251 characters)

Pours a copper to orange with small but noticeable head. Smells really dank in resinous in glass but grassier in the can. Some citrus on palate, good hop bite, and hides the ABV quite well. Viscous resinous mouthfeel. (220 characters)

4.42/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - The beer poured a golden copper color with a bright white head.

Smell - The nose might be best described as candied grass.

Taste - My first impressions is spicy grass. Other notes include orange, tea, and biscuity malts. All of the notes going on here work well together. There is a slightly warmish aftertaste with notes of orange and spice.

Mouthfeel - There is a smooth clinginess to the mouthfeel. The spice really sticks around.

Overall - Triple IPA is not an official style. That said, this is not the most heavy imperial IPA. It is delicious. (566 characters)

Triple IPAs to me have always been a crapshoot in a way. I've had a lot of good ones(never had PtY), but one has never blown me away until AGE. This is an amazing beer in every way. It's high ABV, but you don't taste it. It pours less cloudy than any other OH beer I've had. The nose is very strong- pine, grass, dank. The taste is incredible, a feast for the palate. All of the intense flavors from the nose combine to provide one of the best IPA experiences I've ever had. Could not recommend higher.

A side note- the first can I had I poured into a glass and it was fantastic. Second can I drank directly from the can and it was a revelation. (671 characters)

Wow! This is a serious beer. It sneaks up on you too. It pours golden with a head that dissipates quickly. Strong hop aroma. Lots of pine and grass notes and really balanced. (179 characters)

Straight up bitterness with this one. Lots of pine. Sweetness. Some grapefruit. Hop resin stickiness in the finish. Dank and weedy. I thought this was good, but not as good as the rating suggest. #GreenCanYo (207 characters)

4.76/5  rDev +6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

This is easily one of the smoothest and most delicious beers I've ever had at this ABV level. No cloying here; just surprisingly smooth and drinkable triple IPA. You can't hide the alcohol completely, but I found myself downing this much quicker that I'd normally approach a beer like this. Definitely prefer this hands down side-by-side with their Green Diamonds DIPA. AGE definitely lives up to the hype, and I will be seeking it out far more often moving forward. (470 characters)

Can shared by Paul & Margot. Thanks!

Dark orange, effervescent body with a thin white collar. Tropical fruit aromas with a substantial amount backbone. Thick, syrupy body with medium sweetness. Lots of fresh, juicy hop character. This is a big beer. Nice. (257 characters)

little to no head when poured from 6/25/15 can into OH AGE glass. Bottom of can says "Do Not A.G.E" so this is as fresh as it gets, very piney, ABV is there, but you wouldn't guess 10.5% crushed the first half of this can then the booze hit me, but in a good way, slowed down and enjoyed the second (Other) Half of the can. Very well balanced Double/Triple IPA, this one is semi crushable, but hits you hard when it hits, highly recommended. (443 characters)

16 oz. can poured into a snifter. Hazy orange body. Small white head that doesn’t last. Leggy. Thin collar, if that. Boozy. Caramel malt. Pine hops. Grassy. Taste is nicely hop forward, considering its size. Orange up front. More pungent and grassy behind it. Strong sweetness and equal bitterness. Heavy and boozy. Long alcohol finish. It’s tasty, but absurdly boozy and heavy. (382 characters)

Deep, hazy orangish yellow when poured. The nose is tropical fruit mango and pineapples. Taste was not what I expected as some of the nose came thru but this was one dry finish on this beer. A very solid offering (212 characters)

Thanks jtladner for this. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a medium pale color with a razor thin bright white head. Persistent collar.

S: Pungent, expansive hop aroma of banana, mango, along with a deep boozy malt (bordering on what you’d get from a barleywine), some floral and piney notes.

T: Malt-forward with mild sweetness, crystal malt, pine, finishing with a high bitterness that is balanced by the body and sweetness.

M: Full bodied with medium carbonation. Slight alcohol burn.

O: Big, tasty triple IPA. This is nearing the point of an American Barleywine with high bitterness and malt-forwardness. (611 characters)

Canned 5.19.15. Drank 6.13.15. Poured from a 16oz can to a Tulip.

A: Pours an unfiltered, hazy golden honey with a finger and a half of dusty light beige head. Fades to a high collar and barely-there cap.

S: Piney and tropical. Heavy mango, pineapple, and peach. Maybe some passion fruit as well? A very exotic aroma... big, heavy, stank bomb without smelling artificial.

T: Chewy, dank, a heavy bite of resin that slowly eases up as you progress. A touch boozy, but it is masked by waves of hoppy citrus zest and pallets of malt to keep things balanced. Mango/Tangerine/Pine/Malt

M: Silky. Consistent whether cold or warm. Alcohol makes its presence known during a very drying finish. Smooth, filling, warming.

O: Yahtzee! AGE exceeded my expectations, and entrenched OH as my top local brewery. A big, bold, unique DIPA (triple... whatever) that is an absolute treat. Seriously, this is a very well made beer... one of the few 10%+ DIPA that is worth seeking out. (970 characters)

Didn't care for this. Had some decent citrus flavors but found it very boozy which completely overtook the beer and muted all other flavors. Had multiple cans and experienced the same thing. (190 characters)

Wow. is all i can say. This beer is wave after wave of hoppy deliciousness. Tropical and citrus notes balanced by touches of earthy and grassy notes. Faint caramel sweetness in the end. Not boozy at all. really impressive. (222 characters)
