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.

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....

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.

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 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

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.

Wicked ass crazy amounts of pine. Wads of it. Loads of resin. Way up in my mouth. Gobs and gobs of it, but it's still crazy smooth. Alcohol isn't noticeable at all. Love it.

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.

Another very good offering from Other half. It is close but I would have to give the edge to green diamonds. This was a very close 2nd tho as the flavors and the aromas are amazing, I just think its a little less balanced imo then the GD'S. But at this point were splitting hairs!

Amber orange color with an off white head and some spotty lacing. Aroma is off the charts and out of bounds, it's a tropical onslaught. Taste brings waves of flavor, citrus pulp and pith, tangerine, orange, mango, papaya, and grapefruit toward the finish. Big waves of hop flavor and a clean bitterness. Medium body, touch boozy and dry on the finish. This is a top tier DIPA for sure and one that I need to seek out again.

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.
