Picked this up at Other Half when it was released last month. The date on the bottom of the can was 9/23 and had "Pretty Daddy" written above it, in addition. I like most of the single hop beers from these guys but this one may have been my least favorite. It wasn't that this bad or undrinkable, but that it seemed too typical and unremarkable to me. This was one of these beers that give you what you're looking for but didn't break any new ground or surprised me in any way.

If you like your beer to resemble dank, fermented orange juice, than look no further. The pour to this had that appearance with enough head to measure up to the hazy appearance of the liquid. There wasn't a lot of lacing left behind as this beer was a bit thinner in consistency than I anticipated. Lots of orange juice, citrus pith, and fruit rind in the nose with even more in the taste. An onion and garlic-like taste to the mouthfeel made this quite acrid with some citrus sweetness and floral spice tossed in for good measure. Medium in body, light in carbonation, and juicy all the way through, a hint of hop oils lingered on my palate long after the liquid went down, with a metallic, earthy burn from the hops left over for good measure.

This felt stronger than it was in actuality as the alcohol could be felt near the end of my session. I never tasted it and the flavors, slightly muddled as they were, meshed together nicely. I can see why people enjoy this but for me, it's something to try once. Amarillo hops are found in so many beers that this didn't seem that noteworthy to me but like most of Other Half's offerings, this was a solid beer worthy of a go at least once; although so many other recent releases easily overshadow this.

Poured from a 16oz can. Pours orange with some haze. The aroma is citrus oranges and tangerines and taste is very similar...very strong orange/tangerine flavoring. Overall a good single hop IPA. If you like orange flavors, this is the beer for you...

Poured from a can a very hazy golden color with a bubbly head that slowly disappears. The nose is all hops with orange and a little bit of spice. Juicy orange citrus flavor with a nice bitter finish. The feel is medium with a slight resin and decent carbonation. This is another solid IPA from Other Half Brewing. I like single hop IPA's and the Amarillo hop is one of my favorites.
