4.33/5  rDev -3.6%
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. (2,076 characters)

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

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)

4.86/5  rDev +8.2%
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!! (1,031 characters)

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. (280 characters)

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.... (368 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)

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)

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)

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 (595 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)

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)

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. (516 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)

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)

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. (864 characters)

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. (301 characters)
