From a can dated 7/27/15. Excellent showcase of the Galaxy hop, balanced with a perfect malt finish. Other Half absolutely is killing it with their single-hop offerings.

thanks Mike for swinging by on your way home from the release to pop a can (and some other bottles). enjoyed side by side with fresh mastermind and hopcelot. brew poured deep murky orange. nose is sweaty dank galaxy hop. really has that other half vibe to it something in the nose and taste that I find similar in all their brews. really nice. super juicy...a bit boozy, overall a really nice brew. not my favorite of the single hops but far from the worst. other half keeps cranking out the goodness and this is no excepttion.

On tap at Other Half Brewing Company in Brooklyn, NY.

This one pours a hazy orange color, with a half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells really richly and nicely of Galaxy hops- my favorite hop varietal. Lots of grapefruit, orange, and passionfruit, I'd say- with a pretty significant pine and dank herbal sort of character.

This is a really nicely well-done IPA here. Galaxy is a great single hop because it seems like it can impart some complexities that multi-hopped beers have. There's a good amount of nice exotic fruit flavors, passionfruit and mango, with a bit of grapefruit too. The finish is very herbal, moderately bitter, with some wet pine flavors. Awesome.

This is one juicy beer- so nice and bright to drink. The carbonation level is moderate. This one starts juicy up front, then finishes pretty dry.

Another superb IPA from Other Half.

Pours a cloudy dark orange color with a foamy white head, and there is good carbonation. The odor is IPA like, with citrus notes such as orange, lemon, and grapefruit, some tropical fruits, pineapple, peach, apricot, metallic note, earthy, herbal, spicy, clove, linen, slightly floral. The taste for me is tropical fruit, citrus, orange, peach, resin, pine, metallic, onion, herbal, grassy, earthy, malty, bitter throughout.
