So after hearing much hype, had two of these on tap at Blind Tiger Ale House in NYC. Color was typical orange/gold with a white sticky head. Aroma wasn't too strong, but I don't have the best nose.
It's exactly what you pay for. A well executed single-hop IPA that lets all the nuances of the strain shine. If you've ever had a citra single-hop pale or IPA before, you know what to expect. The only difference is this is done perfectly. Supremely drinkable. Bitterness is strong (I'm not a big fan of super-juicy IPA's that have huge aroma and fruits but no bite). Just enough toasted malt sweetness to balance.
Among 20 other taps, I chose to have this a second time. That alone tells me this is a fine brew. Again, it's nothing that will change the way you think about beer, but for what it is, it is done to perfection.

I hate writing reviews for Other Half, because I don't want too many people to catch on.

This is a phenomenal IPA, superbly hopped, big and juicy. A real treat if it's on tap.
