4.33/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Jimmy's No. 43. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance: Beautiful glowing opaque orange yellow. Great head retention for a "triple IPA" as well. When I see beers that look like this, I want to drink them immediately.

Smell: Sweet red grapefruit. Aromatic and floral but not pungent. Smells like it's single hopped with Centennial or something. Smells hopped as hell but no earthy / dank, all flower, light red berries, and citrus. The magnitude of the citrus really opens up with time and warmth.

Extra points for being 10%+ ABV and no booziness in the nose at all.

Taste: The hops from the aroma, full flavored and again, all fruit and flower. Big malt sweetness underneath is somehow not cloying, and just hot enough (you can tell it's high alcohol, but it's not assertively hot at all). Tastes like a more refined and citrusy 90minute IPA with a way better mouthfeel. Hops and malt are in perfect balance. Low perceived bitterness.

Surprised to read on the menu the hops used in this beer. I have to admit that I think some of them are a bit wasted here; I'm not tasting the telltale signs of most of these hops. Who cares though; the finished product is an uncommonly beautiful balance of hop and malt, really fantastic.

Mouthfeel: This, like most really well done hoppy beers, is where this beer shines. Juicy and mildly carbonated, medium bodied. Neither sugary nor dry, but somehow gives an impression of lightness that matches perfectly with the refined balance of the flavor.

Overall: This beer is like taking an unassuming but profoundly "pleasant" flowery and citrusy pale ale, doubling it while retaining all of its balance, subtlety, and "pleasantness," then tripling it and still keeping everything right. Almost show-off-y in this regard; it tastes like a beer that is not easy to make.

Hat tip as well for avoiding the dank weed punch in the face that's carrying most hop bombs to popularity nowadays. Honestly, I *love* those dank hop bombs, but I like this too, and I respect the talent that must have gone into making it. Noteworthy beer.

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.

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

Appearance: Golden orange.

Aroma: Lots of fruit and citrus. Pine and resin as well.

Taste: Fruity, Dank, Pine, with a nice balance from the malt. The hops hide the alcohol very well. Can be dangerous.

Mouthfeel: So smooth. Medium body.

Overall: One of Other Half's best beers.

Wanted this beer to live up to the hype on BA. It didn't. Got one of the limited edition big $$$ cans from a friend. Enjoyed out of a plastic keg cup. High ABV beer, so I'm excited. Nose is really nice, all citrus fruits and hop yum. Taste -- like a shot of vodka with a twist of grapefruit. Ugh. Not sure why people are lining up around the block for this at all....

Had this at the ACBF on Friday night in a 2oz tasting glass. Was a happy surprise because it was not on the Guides beer list.

A: Red orange with a haze, white creamy head. .
S: Has a ton of aroma, citrus and pine with tropical notes, each whiff brings new scents. Tropical comes on more strongly as it warms.
T: Deep and resinous, dank hop blasts come through balanced and bright. Citrus, tropical, pine, peach.
M: Smooth and satisfying, impressive.
O: Was one of my top tastings at the 2015 ACBF. Can't wait to get more. Have some on the way from sis-in-law in Brooklyn. Met the hype IMO

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

Bottled 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.

Another killer fruit bomb by OH. These guys are my new favorite brewery.

A- nice foggy gold w small white head.

S- tropical fruits. Papaya, guava, pineapple. Not much pine or resin going on.

T- follows nose. Lots of tropical and citrus fruits with very little malt presence. An unbelievably smooth brew for the ABV. I defiantly thought it'd have a bite but not at all.

M- perfect smoothness and drinkability.

O- hard to find anything wrong here. A home run once again by OH. Keep them coming please.

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.

4.86/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A: Opaque, the lighter side of bronze, with a dissipating foamy white head.
S: When cold, piney and resinous, as expected, comes out. As it warms the tropical fruits really burst out of the glass. Papaya, Mango, touches of peach?
T: Thick, resiny taste just bites down on your tongue. The Mosaic is strong here, but it is driven by something fierce and dank. The bitterness wasn't so much a factor as just sheer mouth weight of the hops. I felt it lighten up and get more tropical and fruity as the beer warmed. ABV is disguised, shocked to see 10.5%.
M: I found it to be silky smooth from cold to warm. Reminiscent of other epic DIPAs, IIPAs, I've had. A characteristic missing in the wannabe-P-A-s.
O: I really have to stop drinking these beers, it ruins the field for me! Dunno what the lower end reviews have beef with. This is a danky, resinous, uppercut to your face beer that I believe, in all seriousness, I would be happy to drink for life. Fresh Dinner still tops it for me, but this is one of the bees knees!!

From 05/06/14 notes. Had on tap at The Jeffrey in NYC, my first Other Half beer. 14 oz. pour in a tulip for $8.

a - Pours a deep, hazy orangish color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of fruity malts, tropical fruits, pine hops, citrus hops, resin, grapefruit, bready malts, pale malts. Nice nose, some good hops to it and a lot of fruit.

t - Tastes of of fruity malts, citrus hops, bready malts, pine hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit, earthy malts. Taste is good and fruity, but much more malty than nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. No bitterness and no real bite from all the alcohol.

o - Overall a good beer, though I didn't find it a hop bomb and found the taste much maltier than I was expecting. The alcohol is hidden very well, and there is a good amount of fruit to it. Worth checking out.

On tap at the tap room. Beer only a couple of days old. This is one of the best smelling beers I have ever had, amazing smell. Great taste and at 10.5 ABV there is no taste of alcohol at all. Unlike some of the other really big TIPAs, this is not syrupy.

As good as it gets, Other Half is killing it.

16 ounce can poured into an oversized Belgian tulip.

Quite an impressive foamy, frothy pale white head forms from the pour. Persists for quite some time, in fact allowing me to write these notes as it slowly recedes. Lace scatters about in little islets shapes. The body is a hazy, cloudy copper color with a blonde hue to it. 4.5

Big old bursts of fruit pop out on the nose. Mango, pineapple, orange and the likes, but a smooth and sweet malt aroma shows up with a second pass of the nose. There are piney notes and some of that cat piss smell too. 4.25

First thing of note is that I'd never have guessed this was a ten fiddy ABV. There's 7 percent IPAs with more heat and solvent flavor than this. That's well done. Second, it's not as fruity as the nose but it still plenty of flavor going on. Orange and lemon, floral notes, zesty spice, and sweet, creamy vanilla malt. There's a touch of resinous hop flavor on the finish. 4.25

I mentioned the booze level and I gotta emphasize again, this doesn't drink like it's 10.5. There's a touch of heat but it's easy to roll with. The body is full, but smooth enough to permit me to throw this back like a British Mild. The finish lingers for an eternity with dryness and bitterness. 4.25

This is a damn good brew. Damn good.

32oz. counter-pressure filled growler into a Tree-House teku. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a 1 finger foamy white head with good retention. Beer is a slightly-cloudy bronze. Lacing is spotty, stringy and sparse with solid cling. Oily legs. Nice looking brew.

Nose is slightly soapy. Notes of pine, papaya, starfruit, mango, citrus and other tropical fruit. A nice cane sugar dank hop bitterness is pervasive. Really aromatic and fantastically enticing.

Opens sweet mango, papaya, cane sugar, and citrus. Sweet with a big tropical fruit malt backbone. A light hop bitterness provides an excellent balance. Ends slightly resiny, sappy and sweet. Same aftertaste. Very impressive.

Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Smooth and lively in the mouth and goes down crisp, refreshing and super drinkable for the ABV. Finishes messy with a dry aftertaste. Excellent.

This is hands down, one of the top 10 beers I've had in the style. That it's made by a brewery in New York is even more impressive. By far the best thing I've had that's made in New York. Check these guys out! If only for AGE!

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.

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.

I had this at the extreme Beer fest boston 2015. Hands down the best IPA of the fest. You only need to know one thing to understand why: motueka. The New Zealand hop that packs the most luscious and juicy grapefruit flavor you have ever experienced. Other Side signed their hop contracts two years before they even started brewing which is the reason they have access to this rare, expensive, and mind blowing hop. If you are attending EBF2015 and you don't try this beer you are missing out on something magical. Gold star for Other Side for bringing this amazing beer.

The beer comes in an amber orange with reddish hues.

The aroma hits of oranges, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, pineapple, lots of Mosaic and dank Mosaic on the back. Hops dominate as the malt is sweet, but takes a backseat.

The flavor hits up front of juicy orange, tangerine, some mango and sweet tropical. Breadiness hits in the middle, but then the middle hits of a big dank note, some herbaceous, a lingering stiff aftertaste of that and bittering, along with a touch of alcohol.

The beer drinks towards 9%, but there is a warming as the beer goes down.

One of the best TIPAs out there, but definitely not the best that Other Half has to offer.

On tap, and in a 32oz growler from the brewery:

An absolutely incredible beer. It is not often that I am floored by a brew, but AGE was absolutely fantastic. It seems that most IPAs these days are heavily tilted in either the bitter or the juicy direction, and what AGE is more than anything else is a picture of perfect balance between these two directions. So much pine and resin in the pungent nose, along with melon and tropical fruit, followed up by one of he creamiest, crispest and most flavorful ales I've had. I would put nearly equal with Heady Topper, if not equal. I loved it and will be coming back for more as often as I can.

swung by the tasting room this morning to grab the citra and nelson cans and grabbed a growler of this. thanks for the growler assist jim! enjoyed from an OH willie B

a - brew pours a semi transparent orange. deep and rich color with a classic frothy ipa head. lines of lace coated the glass where the beer one was as i sipped it down.

s - yum. fresh resinous dripping dank citric hop. smells fantastic...like an Iipa aught to. super appetizing and inviting. dripping with gooey hoppy goodness.

t/m/o - in a word...homerun. other half is really making NY proud in the IPA category cranking out several varieties of world class ipas. super quenching and the abv is invisible in the taste, but its warming power will take you over before the glass is done. all that tropical fruit in the nose is just as gooey and ripe in the taste. like biting into a resinous peak riped hop. super juicy. thank you other half for giving NY some IPAs that can hang with the big boys of the west coast. this is worth putting some effort into getting if you are a fan of great ipas/iipas
