I find this beer to be quite stupendous. Poured a beautiful orange glow like it was graced by the hands of angel; flavor is just supreme; real light, but deep juicy hops as good as Angela Lansbury solving her latest crime. Would I “Gaslight” Ingrid Bergman to get my hands on another o e of this beers? I think I would

16 ounce can, no date seen. Poured into tulip pours a hazy lemon yellow, with peach highlights. Spotty lacing covers the entire insides of the glass. Beautiful nose of tangerine, orange, guava, lemon meringue pie. Much of the same in the taste-lemon zest, pine tree, pineapple, grapefruit pith.
Clean, smooth, crisp dry finish.
My first OH, delicious!

Ahtanum, Amarillo, Citra

All the smells and 11 different subtle nuances wrapped up in a pillowy body. Not their best, but with OH that’s still better than 95% of NEIPAs. Fine flagship that brings the juice.

drinking this at well over a month old and holy shit im blown away. had this alongside DDH mosaic daydream and ddh mylar bags from the same batch, this one easily stands out as the best which surprised me. pours out a ridiculously beautiful hazed golden orange color, bright white head is creamy and has some soapy bubbles atop. nose is bubblegum, pulpy OJ and a hint of danky pine. on palate it is insanely ripe mango, pineapple, guava, orange creamsicle, lcyhee, melon, peaches, grapefruit, lemon, super creamy and sugary bread notes, hit of bubblegum sweetness and some subdued pine on the finish. mouthfeel is fluff, insanely delicious stuff!!

Appearance: Pours a murky honey color with a sturdy inch of foam; plenty of lacing hangs around

Smell: Guava, papaya, pineapple, mango and tangerine

Taste: Guava and papaya forward with the stronger tones of mango and pineapple building; tangerine adds some bitter tones into the middle but the finish is a tropical melange

Mouthfeel: Medium body with creamy, moderate carbonation

Overall: One of the more quaffable NE IPAs from Other Half that I have tried; very enjoyable

Thanks, , JBYRD64, for the opportunity

Juicy aroma and flavor but with a good bitter bite at the end to offset the jucuines.

Can to becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-hazy golden to copper color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that left some light concave lace after dissipation. The aroma had some peach/apricot sweetness, light pineapple, sweet cream/vanilla, light sweet grassy notes and a light little bit of lemon at the end. The flavor leaned into the sweetness at first and then cued up a little bit of bitterness and a light kick of hop spice. Dry apricot sweet and jam-like aftertaste and finish. The palate was almost medium bodied, leaning a bit under and having a good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt good. Overall, pretty good IPA that I’d have again.
