Picked this up when it was released at the brewery in September, as the date on the bottom of the can was 9/23 with 'Violently hoppy" written above it. I loved the Double Mosaic Dream but this took it a step further as the juice was perfect here and the dry-hopped nature of this beer allowed the bitterness to softly grow in stature at the end of each sip.

This beer looked, smelled, and poured like pure citrus juice as soon as I cracked the can open - quite an aroma to this with lots of orange, tangerine, mango, papaya, and an undertone of dank Mosaic hops. Plenty of head here as this had a nice ring of lacing along the top of my pint glass with clumps of it down the side. Amazing mouthfeel with lots of juice, grass, sweet malt, and slick resin all combining for a lovely, succulent tone from start to finish. More dank in the back with hints of onion and garlic as there were a ginger-like snap in the aftertaste once the liquid went down.

There was enough alcohol in this too but it couldn't be felt and I only picked it up on my breath once I finished this off. Along the lines of the Mylar Bags, this beer had the best aspects of an IPA from these parts without feeling overly dank, heavy, or hopped-up. Amazing balance here as the Mosaic really came through in full-force in the back. Nice touch on the can design repeating pattern of the Double Mosaic Dream but with different hues. A can't-miss from Other Half that was easily worth the wait in line!

This is one of the best IPAs I had in 2016. Had an entire can to myself. Was very thick and hazy with little to no bitterness at all. That's just how I like my IPAs. Wish I could line the fridge with this one.

One of the best Mosaic hopped beers I've had. Look is semi hazy. Darker orange in color, small off white head. Smell is all Mosaic. Smells amazing! Taste is full of Mosaic goodness. Tropical and dank. Amazing flavor. Drinks light for a DIPA. Expected it to be heavier. Overall, this is a phenomenal Mosaic DIPA.

L - saturated opaque orange, 1 finger head fades to a thin layer

S - pungent lime, passion fruit, with some dank moldy-tomato going on in the background

T - orange juice and dank (in the way their beers often are), faint grassiness, moderate sweetness, finishes dry, pleasant grapefruit-like lingering bitterness

F - medium bodied

O - I don't have the two side-by-side to compare, but I want to say this is very similar to the original DMD, but for me a little better. Stronger citrus flavors without increasing the grassier flavors. Very Vermont-y, and probably my favorite from OH so far.

Best IPA on the market right now. Hazy but not a yeast bomb, taste is tangerine and orange, smooth finish slight bitterness. Better than anything I've had from treehouse and trillium to date. Can date is 3/3/17. ISO more if anyone gets it regularly.

Huge flavors of tangerine and papaya. Absolutely incredible beer from OH. Not a single part of this beer disappointed and it now rests on my list of top beers. Definitely try this one if you get the chance!

Canned 9/23/16. Consumed 9/27/16.

A: Pours a light gold with about a finger of fluffy white head. Sits in the glass a slightly darker gold, pretty hazy but not completely opaque.

S: Mix of tropical and citrus fruit, but not overly sharp. It’s a delicate and aroma with a variegated profile—I get tangerine, passionfruit, and mango. The fruit notes are there for sure, but rather than overwhelm the nose, they are soft and sweet, almost semi-ripe as opposed to the sticky, dripping ripe fruit notes I get on other DDH beers. But beneath that, there’s definitely a Mosaic dankness that comes through intensely (more so when it’s cold). It’s oniony, a little garlicky, and a bit grassy.

T: Closely follows the nose. Up front, a wonderful medley of tropical and citrus fruits. Passionfruit, tangerine, and a hint of mango and white peach. Subtle maltiness hits mid-palate, but subsequently succumbs to the vegetal finish. Those same dank notes I get on the aroma come through at the end of the taste. Blueberry and onion are most present, but there’s definitely some grass and just a hint of garlic in there. This flavor lingers on the tongue and leaves a earthy aftertaste that nicely contrasts the intense fruitiness of the front end.

M: Good mouthfeel for an Other Half beer. This one has a medium bitterness on the finish that perfectly complements the medium sweetness on the taste. In terms of weight, it’s medium; definitely not creamy, but substantial for sure. I get a slight tinge in the back of the throat as it warms, but for the ABV, this is to be expected. Like many of their beers, I feel this one could be slightly less carbonated, but the effervescence of the medium-sized bubbles isn’t at all unpleasant.

O: DDHDMD (what an acronym…) is easily one of my favorite Other Half beers to date. I prefer it to the base DMD, as I find it to be slightly less sweet (at least at

Smells like a wet dream. So lovely in the aroma. Pungent, pungent, prickly sweet fruit nectars. Passionfruit, mango and pineapple. That's really the standout for me with this beer. It smells damn good.

Looks good enough, hazy pear nectar with a ton of frothy head. The OH growler fills really keep their head.

Flavor doesn't quite compete with the nose. Just not as explosive. More earthy, raw hop flavors and less fruit. But it's still fruity as fuck too. Mango, strawberry, canteloupe and honeydew. The prickliness and bitterness cut away at some of the fruity quality though, meaning it doesn't quite sip as easily as the flavors would call for.

I'm about halfway through a 64 ounce growler though, so maybe it's easier to drink than I think.
