pours out a hazed orange color with white head that recedes quickly, no lacing. big pineapple, pulpy OJ, grapefruit, super earthy almost coffee like note, dankness, lemon grassy herbaceous and floral notes, mint, spicy peppery hops, pine needles, resinous. solid mouthfeel.

Smell: Really green, basil, yogurt. Green fruit pineapple, peach, melon dew, orange. A little malt sweetness and a hint of juiciness.

Taste: Follows the nose for the most part, but it's more juicy on the plate. Upfront it's green, basil, green vegetables. In the mid plate you get some tropical creamy juiciness pineapple, peach, melon. A little bit of dry crackery malt. in the finish you get some citrus notes orange, and grapefruit rind mix with a little bit of grass to add a moderate bitterness. The grassiness lingers on the sides of your tongue.

Feel: Medium bodied. A good amount of creaminess. Smooth and easy drinking.

Overall: A really tasty beer. Might be a bit green at this point so If you have a few cans I might hold off on drinking them for a week or two. Or not it's really really good right now.

8/3/17 canning from the 8/5/17 can release... Says "double dry hopped" on the bottom of the can next to the canning date, but that's not indicated anywhere on the label... Pale juice-looking beer, as usual for these guys - produced a coupla fingers of head but it slimmed super-quick and left no lace behind... Aromas of bright tropical and citrus fruits on the nose followed by more of the same on the sip... Grapefruit, pineapple, orange, and lime impressions came to mind... Light and smooth, modest carbonation, mild sweetness, gracefully bittered... Another fine brew from Other Half...

White head. Super hazy orange gold.

Somewhat tropical and somewhat juicy and a bit resiny. A little dank and bitterness. Herbal and earthy.

Medium bodied. Nice bitterness.

Solid.

Pastel yellow with a moderate, dense creamy head that settles down to just about nothing.

Aromas of Asian pear, papaya, apricot, and faint pine.

Tastes closer to pineapple, with some peppercorn or spicy yeast giving it some bite.

A little watery, but still a touch creamy.

L -- Very hazy peach color, little head on a pretty light pour.

S -- Tons of mango and pineapple and strong peach notes. Slightly muted every time I've had it -- not as much of a burst of aroma as I expected. Some grassy notes to it as well.

T -- Follows strongly with the aroma, although with the inclusion of some resinous notes. The grassy notes persist and are added to by some floral knocks in the aftertaste.

F -- Medium, slightly resinous.

O -- A solid IPA. It has changed a lot of the three weeks I've been working my way through 8 of them, with 10-12 days being the sweet-spot for my palate on this one. It was quite juicy then, very strong citrus/tropical notes in the aroma and flavor, but that's dropped off a fair bit and more of the earthy/vegetal side of the hops have come through. I think at it's peak I'd give it about 4.3, but it doesn't have the best staying power.
