This beer is pretty great, so pumped that NY is producing beers of this quality now. Thanks to Other Half.

This Beer pours a really hazy orange. The nose parallels those beers from Vermont less the piney quality. Heavy citrus, grapefruit, orange. The taste follows perfectly, perfectly bitter on the back end.. A citrus forward beer, the mouthfeel is no different than a IIPA though which I love. Very Drinkable.

Way to go other half

I received this one on trade from an amazing trader, awesome guy! I casually mentioned this beer to him and he said he had some and then added Green Diamonds as well to the trade. I saw this beer on a youtube rating site and it intrigued me. So I am happy to have the chance to try it!

Appearance: Nice golden straw yellow. Pretty hazy but you can see shadows of shapes on the other side of the glass. Head is pretty mild and pretty faint once it settles into the glass.

Aroma: Tropical fruit notes, not really resinous at all very fruit forward almost reminds me of Tang or some orange style powdered drink but in a good way.

Taste: Very smooth, some mild citrus notes and hardly any bitterness, extremely drinkable.

Overall: This is by far the best session IPA I have ever had! I wish I could get this one all the time, this is a perfect warm weather beach beer, I could see myself sucking these back all day long on a hot summer day. It also does not have that onion/body odor aroma that a lot of the "session" IPA's have. Quality made beer, if you can get it do. Hopefully since its made in our largest city it will be something that will be more widely distributed in the future now that its being canned. Amazing! I wish I had more!

Very drinkable and extremely smooth. I usually go for a stronger beer but this came highly recommended at proletariat nyc.. Rightfully so. Tastes like a double ipa. Great beer would definitely have it again

Pours hazy gold with bubbles racing up the brew to a 1 finger foamy off white head that faded slowly and left great foamy lacing coating the sides. Solid looking pour from a can.

Smells like a DIPA or a fresh hopped IPA; tons of citrus hops and piney hops with lemon zest, pineapple, grapefruit, mango, fruity candy like gummy bears, brown sugar, caramel, coriander, herbs, graham cracker and toasted grains. No fucking way can a 4.2% ABV pale ale smell this good, it's outstanding.

Taste: see above - wow, this could be one of the best session beers that I've ever had. Very fresh tasting, very light, really quaffable. More orange and tangerine in the flavor and the malt backbone brings wheat bread, crackers and toasted grains to the party for prefect balance. Light spices and floral notes linger and leave a lightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and slick, with a light to medium body, average carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste with zero trace of the ABV. It's like the tastiest damn Coors Light feeling beer EVER. An excellent beer overall.

From 02/19/15 notes. Picked up a 16 oz. can for $5.99 at Bierkraft in Brooklyn 4 days ago. Poured into a tulip.

Pours a somewhat clear bright yellow-honey color with one finger of off white head and moderate to high carbonation the evident. Nose is great with lots of citrus hops, honey, fruity malts, pine, and tropical notes. Tastes is good but less hoppy and more grains, bready malts, dough, and biscuit malts. Medium body and high carbonation with no bitterness.

Overall not their best but very good. Not the hopiest APA but the nose is great. Worth checking out for sure.

16 oz can. 2-05-15 stamped on the bottom

Hazed tangerine quality looking forth on top,leaves a nice tiny bubble film and sloppy lacing.

Citric and tropical fruit nose

More fruits, mango,grapefruit,pineapple on the palate. Yummy yummy stuff.
Easy drinking and infused with flavor and intrigue.

Cost me $4 a can at the source

16oz can poured into a teku

OTHER HALF IS CANNING, REJOICE! What an amazing color, a golden hybrid of ripe tangerines and apricots. Big fuzzy near-white head builds right up, then goes almost entirely away. Leaves minimal lacing. The nose features subtle hints of stone fruit, and nectar. Not quite at the level of Carton's Boat Beer, but very nice. And much like Boat Beer, Other Half manages to pack a ton of flavor into a 4.2% ABV sessionable ale, just not quite as much (sorry the comparisons should be obvious). Mango, bits of pineapple, fruit juice, toasted malts, it's all there, just in a slightly subdued way. Really tasty though, and absolutely crushable. Great feel to the beer as well, but I actually detract a bit from the score for the 4-pack being $14. Boat Beer is $10, pretty much all that need be said.

Personally, I feel OH is a very solid brewery that pretty much makes IPAs. So anything hoppy should be pretty solid from them and generally is. Some beers I feel are a bit overhyped by beer nerds looking to substantiate themselves by being ahead of the curve (this is a new brewery) but I will say of all the OH beers I've tried this one genuinely impressed me. Great flavor, aroma and all in a sessionable package. My favorite from them.

The beer comes in an opaque, super hazy bright golden color.

The aroma offers lemon candy, grapefruit.

The flavor follows with grapefruit up front, orange peel, citrus seed and zest. There's some grass and floral in the middle. A hint of sweetness comes along, but is very faint. The mouthfeel is creamy, with a perfect breadiness that reminds me of a New England style hoppy beer. The bitterness is medium plus with some grassiness and citrus peel.

The beer drinks towards HF Edward. Great hop profile, perfect mouthfeel, one of the best session hoppy brews I've had.

8oz pour at tørst in a tørst wine glass. Deep orange color with a generous head and sticky lace left some spotty lace as I.sipped. Nose is out of this world. Huge fresh travertine. Sweet. Dank. And a nice slap of earth in the background. Taste is solid but not the start that the nose is, but wait, thus is a pale ale! Superfun indeed, great solid earthy back bone with fruity hopping over the top. Super easy drinking and phenomenal that the abv is so manageable. Great session beer that has a strong malt back, the way a pale should be. Really nice chewy body
