Another Other Half beer that blows the doors off.

A great golden color, real nice rugged looking foam that coats the top of my glass, but not uniformly.

Powerful sweetness invades initially, but is combatted with a resinous, dank hop bitterness that takes over and you're left with a long malty and bitter finish with subtle notes of candied grapefruits and lemon zest.

Perfect body as I have come to expect with OH's IIPA. Great, great beer!!

Canned 1/18. Pale orange juice color, modest head that faded quickly but left a nice thick ring of foam around the glass and stringy lacing. The nose is a bit muted, slight peach but mostly floral and even a bit smokey. Tastes similar to the nose, floral, hint of smokiness and dry. A bit astringent but good carbonation no hint of the booze. A fun beer not the traditional juice-bomb you would expect from Other Half.

Poured from a 16oz can into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a slightly amber hazy yellow with a thin white head.

Aroma is a little astringent lemon orange.

Taste is much more complex. Lots of citrus and bitter peel.

Delicious.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a conical pint glass; no production information, but obtained recently from brewery.
A: Pours an opaque, dull golden orange color with a three quarter inch, white head, fair retention and lacing.
S: Really fruity: aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and peach all detectable. Fruit salad fruity. Underlying grassy/graininess also evident.
T: Taste really follows the nose, although fruitiness is now evident on a solid, toasty malt backbone. Bitterness beautifully balanced.
M: Still medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and very creamy.
O: I have really come to expect good things from Other Half and this is no exception. This is a very well constructed, flavor forward, enjoyable DIPA, more along the NEDIPA paradigm. Enjoy!

Pours golden. Nice two finger white head. Big orange aroma. I really enjoy this one. A light west coast style with orange peel, tangerine and grapefruit.

This might be my least favorite offering from OH. Perhaps I just dislike Segal Ranch High Oil Cascades. I don't know what it is about this beer, but it's too sweet and I get sweet melon (cantaloupe/honey dew not watermelon), cedar (woody note), and rotten lemon / pine sol flavor. As with all OH DIPA's it drinks like half its actual ABV, but overall I've really not enjoyed drinking this beer.

The really sweet malt mixed with the floral hops reminds me a lot of nice honey.

Sort of creamy porridge at the finish like there are oats in there. Very little bitterness.
