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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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!

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 aroma is big tropical of pineapple and oranges.

The flavor follows of orange, citrus peel, mangoes, pineapples, and peaches. That very Citra light fruit flavor, but also a depth of sweetness. A medium bready malt, and then beer dries off beautifully with some grapefruit and herbacious.

This clearly had Citra and their website confirms "A huge, but dry, triple IPA packed with Motueka, Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic. Super pungent tropical fruit and…"

The alcohol is well hidden! This drinks more towards an 8-9% DIPA.

Move over Peekskill because, along with Hop Showers, Other Half is currently putting out the best hoppy brews in NY. I hope to see more from these guys.

EBF sample. Pours very hazy. Thin white fluff of a head. Aroma is a viscious hop bomb but seemingly brewed with new age hops. Dank and tropical. Really pungent hoppiness and boy is it enticing. Tropical hop perfume. I dive into my sample and am absolutely bombarded by tropical hoppiness. Mango, papaya, pineapple, citrus medley and plenty of pine. These hops are definitely new varietals. Pale malt lends to the juiciness of the hops. Finishes dry and very bitter. Fuller bodied. One of the best beers I had at EBF. Good lord what a hop bomb. Very legit.

Pours hazy gold. Smells like a goddamn rainbow, an A+ hop profile combining, as the name suggests, just about verdant variety of hops you can think of: there's the mango and citrus nodes of typical contemporary IIPAs, but these are balanced against more classic green flavors like grass, pine, and pot. It sounds like a mess, and by all rights it should be, but they fucking nailed it.

Tastes nearly as good as it smells. First sip is a bit overwhelming, but it smooths out beautifully. Citra and Amarillo dominate, with lush tropical fruit nodes bounces against marijuana and pine . The finish is light and yeasty, and the malt never really asserts itself because it doesn't need to, the hops profile balances itself just fine.

All Green Everything is so good that I have to break my long-standing policy of not rating beers based on festival pours. It was easily the star of the show at the 2015 Extreme Beer fest, and I hope to god that Other Half starts distributing out here.
