On tap at Pony Bar.

Hazy copper and gold. Plentiful head and lace. 4.5

Vibrant pineapple, mango, papaya mixture. Pungent and sticky. 4.25

Tastes true to the nose. More piney, resinous notes, but still big on the sticky, pungent fruit. Finishes like mango nectar. 4.25

Thick, sticky, prickly, and minerally/juicy. Feels heavy and should be treated accordingly. This one has more kick than the 8.5 suggests. 4.25

Drinking it out of the can just moments after picking it up at Other Half's can release. Loved it on tap at the All Green release a couple months ago and I was looking forward to it getting canned. For me it stole the show from the All Green we were buying but not everyone will agree there. It's just everything that I look for in an East coast IPA.

L - Hazy opaque light orange and gold.

S - big blast of tropical fruit hops. Big and sweet. The kind of IPA you could crack open at arms length and still get plenty on the nose.

T - lots of tropical fruits again with some hoppy pine resin.

F - thick but drinkable, doesn't feel like you're filling your stomach with syrup like a lot of imp ipas might.

Overall - again, everything I look for in an East coast IPA.

Have been a fan of Other Half Brewing for a bit but always thought they were eight nine tenths of the way to an average Trillium or Treehouse ale. But this beer I would say is on par with them. The look is hazy very similar to the Julius from Treehouse. Big tropical tart nose, you can smell this beer from a foot away! The taste follows the nose. This is a 8.5% pct beer but drinks like a bigger beer. Big grapefruit, orange peel on the taste. Nice bit of malt sweetness in the end.

huge Tha KS to my man Mike for dropping off a can on his way home from the release, had to rip into it immediately. canned yesterday, and hit dog...that's some of that NE hops that's been changing the beer scene. magical combination of fruity and juicy. possibly the best brew I have had from other half so far. homerun.

Had a glass at Coppers (Chelsea). Ridiculously hoppy, of course. The stone fruit really pop. It turns a little tropical and then slides into more biting citrus. My only complaint is the slight astringency, likely from all the hop particles.

Excellent nose, some fruitiness and a nice resin finish. Super solid!

L: Brazen golden hues with a slight hazy nature and ample fluffy white head
S: Mango, pineapple, and tangerine
T: Tropical fruits up front that recede into a slight piney/sweet biscuit malt that leaves a decidedly dry finish
F: Deliciously chewy mouthfeel with slight carbonation
O: Wow another fantastic offering from OH. Honestly this was one of the juicier offerings I've had from OH, but it still ended with that crisp, dry finish requisite of an OH IPA. I really hope they make this one again!

Sizeable white head and good lacing. Slow fade and light covering.

Great nose that has tropical fruits and pine in the front with an undercurrent of citrus.
Light grains with a caramel sweetness. Pepper and faint fusel booze.

Superb flavor. Tropical fruit and sweet malt combine to make the front deceptively luscious and mild and then BAM. Hop heaven. Grapefruit skin finish is hard and astringent. Short dry and clean with a bit of evaporative alcohol adding it the dryness.

Crisp and velvety carbonation that has a suppleness over the tongue. Easy drinking.

A great DIPA that goes down like a summer session ale.
