4.26/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Murky ruddy brownish orange body. Nice lacing with a frothy pearly head.

Smells great - rich citrus rind and marmalade. Lemonade and orange.

This thing tastes like a little margarita! Lime quality pops on the taste. Orangeade and great malt sweetness.

Lovely and all too easy to drink. Just enough dryness from yeast and bitter hops. A little rindy in a good way.

Tons of citrus (orange, creamy tangerine) and tropical (mango, papaya) aroma and flavor. Very smooth, creamy mouthfeel. This is a great example of an all-Citra NEIPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy pale yellow with two-and-a-half fingers of near-white head that seems airy from the side of the glass, but dense and foamy from the top. Lots of sloppy, soapy lacing.

Orange flesh, grapefruit and weedy dankness, with some green onion and cat piss. I like it!

Orange citrus up front in the taste, again with some weedy, jungley, oniony qualities to it, which prevent it from seeming too sweet — although a little orange juice sweetness does build in the aftertaste.

Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel with modest carbonation.

Another very solid NEIPA from Other Half.

Cloudy straw appearance with white head that disipates quickly. Mild citrus aroma. Taste is also a mild citrus that is very pleasant. Feel is a little thin.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a conical pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a hazy golden color, similar to grapefruit juice, with a half inch off white head, low to moderate retention, and modest lacing
S: Aromas of grapefruit, Chardonnay grapes, caramel and pine predominate.
T: Semidry. Palate largely follows the nose, but a touch more lime than simply grapefruit. Bitterness moderate to strong but blending in nicely with other flavors.
M: Medium bodied with moderate retention of effervescence after decanting. Juicy.
O: Enjoyable and very drinkable. Really evolves an it warms to semisweet and fruitier. Another relatively light NEIPA from Other Half.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Himmeriget.

Pours like carbonated OJ.

Smel is juicy and tropical, mango, pineapple and a hint of vanilla.

Taste is slightly sweet and creamy and more citrusy than the nose. Some mango is still there, along with some grassiness. Great, soft bitterness and terrific hop bite.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and pillowy. Well carbonated,

Overall, another terrific IPA by OH.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a hazy golden yellow to orange color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off at a moderate pace. Light stringy lace. The aroma had citrusy zest, pine sweet and bitter qualities, orange juice, and some freshly cut grass. The flavor lent a hand to the sweet side of the prior mentioned aromas. Citrus zest pops in after a little bit of warming. Aftertaste was full of the blend between zestiness and sweetness. Finish pulled in a touch of bitterness. The palate was about medium bodied with a pretty good sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, pretty good DIPA that I wouldn’t mind taking more cans to the dome.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Served in a tulip from a 16oz can.

Appearance: Super cloudy darker gold with medium to heavy bubble son the body. Off-white head rising just about one finger's length. Settles slowly after a few sips.

Smell: Hops and citrus skin, potent and smooth hit to the nostrils.

Taste: Sweet malts with heavy heavy orange, lemon and even grapefruit. Complex with added doses of floral feel creates a mind-bending balance. Amazing taste literally blows the palates away.

Mouth: Heavy stickiness with medium carbonation but definitely heavier from the initial pour.

Overall: I definitely over paid for this brew but with serious happiness. I definitely will be making a trip to Other Half and cleaning out a few shelves. Incredible pick-up..grab it if you see it with no hesitation. Salud!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Canned 4/7/17. Poured into Veil One Year Anniversary glass.

L: 2F head with very good retention, leaves lots of sticky lacing and a cap and ring. Beer is very hazy copy.

S: Just a very nice citrus and tropical blast. Grapefruit, pineapple, and mango predominate. Light malts and a bit of earthiness on the end.

T: Tropical and citrus up front, as the nose would indicate. Grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, and mango. Light malt mid-palate. Finish is slightly earthy and bitter, but this is mostly a fruitbomb.

F: Medium bodied, light to medium carbonation, so a slight bitterness does linger on the palate on the finish. Otherwise, balance and construction are fine, but this is an area that could be tweaked a tiny bit.

O: Great DIPA and it's hard to go wrong with Citra.

First had poured from pint can, stamped on bottom, "1/13/17, PINK CONTENTS," gift from cousin, into nonic pint. What would be simple (yet outstanding) is made complex and absorbing by the excess dry hopping.

By far the best Other Half I have had to date. I want more.

L: Super hazy
S: Citrus and tropical fruit
T: Almost Fruit Loops with perfect pine bitterness
F: True IIPA. Full and ripe with a perfect heaviness
O: Best Other Half I've had

Great beer, hoping for more surprises from a great New York brewer.

Big citra ipa. Great aroma and flavor. Only complaint is in the mouthfeel and finish as it was a bit chewy and slightly bitter and boozy. Very nice beer.

This beer is right in their wheelhouse. So much Citra! The aroma alone almost knocked me out of my chair. There's a reason this sells out in a few hours every time.

Poured into my 13 oz Weyerbacher tulip glass canned on 2/24/17. Pours a very murky orange yellow, with a two finger sticky white head that leaves behind a massive ring of lace.

Smell is mango, papaya, tangerine, guava, pinapple, and some grapefruit.

Taste follows tropical all the way and exactly what I smelled.

Mouthfeel is a big medium, sticky from fresh juicy hops, mild carbonation, not dry, and very drinkable. .......

Overall another amazing DIPA from these guys, classic North East DIPA. Thanks @Rcruz9230 for another gem.

Medium-dark gold body with that expected NE-style haze; finger-plus of ivory head left some lace lines behind. Aromas of citrus, juice, and maybe something floral... Juicy tasting beer with suggestions of candied orange, lemon, melon, and grape; medium-light feel, ample carbonation, moderate bitterness and sweetness... Citra's almost too easy to work with...

Growler pour

Typical Other Half NE IPA look-all turbid and stuff

Tropical fruity sniff

Over the top pineapple bomb - another simply delicious brew - nice to enjoy from a fresh growler fill-go get some

Appearance: Arrives with a murky honey color and capped by a thick hive of a head; sheets of lacing

Smell: Orange floral aromatics with a touch of honey

Taste: A touch of honey on the tip of the tongue and then the citrus flavors explode, bringing orange and mango; undertones of melon and strawberry add another dimension

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Another great citrusy IPA from the folks at Other Half.

Turbid hazy golden orange with a big white head and nice lacing. Aroma is saturated with citrus and hop. Notes of citrus pulp medley, tangerine rind, dank pine rubbed on citrus pith and breakfast grapefruit with a sprinkle of sugar. Medium toward full feel, slick, coats the pallet and finishes a touch dry. I pronounce this my first WOW beer from OH. A juicy citrus soaked hop bomb. Amazing!

Pours a hazy pale orange in color with a finger of white head that dissipates into oblivion. Aroma has lots of zesty citrus and tropical fruit. Lots of soft flavors here. I get zesty tangerine and orange along with mango and papaya. Medium+ body and moderate+ carbonation. I really dig this beer; it has lots of soft, smooth flavors that play very well together.

On-draught @ Mug's Alehouse in Brooklyn, NY. $8 USD per 12oz pour.

Head is a centimeter. White colour. Coating lacing. 1-2 minute retention (in a tulip).

Body is a hazy vibrant yellow-orange. No yeast visible within. Translucent; nontransparent.

AROMA: Pulpy orange citrus dominates, as well it should in a citrus showcase (I)IPA. Pale malts balance out the hop bitterness, bit this aroma is orange juice-emphatic as they come. No booze or overt yeast.

Aromatic intensity is average.

TASTE: Just as the aroma promised. Citra citra citra. It commits to its core hops, emphasizing pulpy orange juice and citrus. Pale malts keep it balanced, and the lack of (much) filtration enhances the pulpy flavour and texture.

It's a citra forward IPA (I reject its designation as an imperial IPA as marketing drivel), and delivers on its premise - yet its premise is limiting. There isn't much intricacy here since it's all citra, and depth of flavour is average at best. You've got the orange juice, the pulp, the hops...but altogether it just doesn't provide much - even though its balance is impressive.

Average flavour duration. Average flavour intensity.

TEXTURE: Coating. Has a nice push-pull between coarseness and smoothness, wetness and dryness. Medium-bodied. Not too oily. Well-carbonated. Pulpy and uneven, which plays to the orange juice schema but doesn't come off all that pleasant or approachable.

OVERALL: Drinkable fare from a well regarded brewery, but not exceptional work - committed to its citra hops though it may be. Hopwise, it just feels like it's missing something - its other half, as it were.

C+ (3.21) / ABOVE AVERAGE

32oz growler from Beershop NYC on the UWS
Pours a slightly orange tinged cloudy gold with creamy white head and thick lacing, smells like citrusy candied orange peel and dank pine, taste is orange blossom sweetness that transitions into peach flesh, guava, and passion fruit, finishes with dank citrus zest leaving a mild pithy bitterness on the tongue, feel is soft as a cloud, creamy, with bright carbonation. Peach orange juice or citrus cotton candy.

From a 16oz can labeled "RIP Timmy - 08/26/16" poured into a snifter. Appearance was hazy like apple cider. Smell is toipical, grapefruit, juicy melon, citrus, and cotton candy. One of the best tasting DIPAs in my opinion. Alcohol is well hidden. So good...

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. I got this via trade with crowlcrowlcrowl. I can't believe I'm drinking all these great beers!

L: A hazy medium golden color with a nice perfect one finger white head. Nice glass lacing.

S: Tropical fruits, citrus, yeast, some pine and some sweet malts.

T: Juicy citrus fruits surprisingly are forefront. Huge flavors of grapefruit and tangerine mix with pineapple, some peach and candied fruit sweetness. Some yeastiness comes out with a slightly bitter piney semi sweet finish. Great beer, no alcohol really. I expected more tropical fruit based on the nose and got more classic citra flavors.

M: Full, coating, smooth and very little alcohol.

O: I'm loving these OH beers. I'll disagree with another reviewer who said this beer is the second best NY IPA next to Grimm Lumen. I've had both, this beer is better. Love it, hope to get more!
