Back when OH used to brew smaller batches, this was easily the best beer in the world. Today, less so, but still packs a powerful punch.

Absurdly drinkable for an 8.5% DIPA. Candy crush pineapple dreams.

RIP OH before they scaled up.

A: Med gold with a touch of pastel that lightens it to maybe a dull yolk color. Evenly distributed 1F of white head with 2-3 min of retention before fading into faint wisps.

S: Didn't brighten up the room on first crack of the can, but bringing in the nose to take a sip...yeah, it's definitely a brash, citra forward aroma. Sweet citrus, Buddha's Hand, sweet and earthy lychee, custard apple, mango, floral orange blossom honey.

M: It's soft and med body, but not Dream thick. A superfine carbonation keeps it smooth--not crisp--and keeps it fairly drinkable for the ABV.

T: Starts with copious amount of melon and mango lassi accompanied by a fruity caramel leading into pineapple jolly ranchers; fresh cut grass x key lime pie jelly beans. Sweetness subsides a bit for some dry tangerine San Pellegrino and ruby grapefruit GuS drinks to set in, which are both pithy while carrying a semblance or sweetness. Finishes with a floral bitterness accompanied by notes of black cherry.

O: In a crowded market of citra IPAs this one indeed stands out. Fruitier and sweeter on the nose than on the palate, it does help the bitterness slide down. Only once did I get a minimal medicinal, Vitamin C tablet-type vibe.

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

Pour produced a common frothy top that befits many a cloudy beer. The coloring fits on the paler yellow end, lacking ay orange hue that some hazies bring to the table. The aforementioned head had some stickiness to it and provided a fair amount of lacing.

I am not getting a burst of aromas from the nose, but the aromas I am getting is pretty standard for the style. Starting out I perceive a bit of the malt and alternatives and a somewhat muddled citrus note. I then get a little sweet melon thread through grapefruit and tangerine. The aromas are whispering that this beer might actually have some bitterness, and I think I am getting a familiar yeast note, as well - though I couldn't say why.

Ok, the opening starts like I expected with the m/alts laying down a dry gray/hay base. Citra fruit pith come next, but there is also a sugary sweetness peeking out from the corner. It's mildly distracting but doesn't drive out the notes that I am enjoying; in fact the sweetness fades and melds into the raw/bitter citrus rind notes to bring out a bit of tropical fruit flesh. What I take as oat/wheat in the hazy NE IPAs I get next. It seems to help carry the citrus rind through - especially the pith and the bitterness that brings is the last thing I'm left with as the beer enters my gullet.

A very good IPA that brings some fruitiness but stays grounded with some back end bitterness.

Very hazy bright yellow body with a beautiful thick white head.
The nose is pungeant on resinous weed, dank mango, a bit of orange.
The taste follows with the orange at first then a really nice resinous bitterness. I love this long lasting bitterness
The mouthfeel is quite coating. Juicy.
Overall, from far the best other half beer I've had. A great example of an ipa

A dark gold, orangeish color that I've only seen otherwise on Mylar Bags. Aroma was consistent with the taste, which was a deep sweetness followed by a nice bracing bitterness. Very fruity and complex. Thick, creamy feel. As good as it gets, at least the batch I had.

So excited to find this brew at Canal’s in Berlin NJ. Top notch super hazy murky deep golden look with an offwhite head with some staying power. Wonderful fruity and sweet Citra nose on this puppy. Ooh that’s tasty. Very fruit driven and sweet with a drying gentle grapefruit and pine bitterness. I’d call this just south of creamy with good carbonation for the style. This is well balanced but I think I like the DDH Double Mosaic Dream better although this is a fine brew. Love the feel along with the flavor of this one.

Canned on 2/3/2021 so reviewed at 2 weeks. Poured into a snulip glass. It pours. a murky, dirty tangerine color with a half finger of creamy, milk-white head and thick soapy lacing. A bright, fruity nose featuring lemon, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and soft floral hops. The taste is huge and fruity. It opens with tart lemon peel and grapefruit rind that is quickly matched by sweet notes of pineapple, peach, mango, and lychee. You won't find a better showcase of Citra hops. They provide lots of fruit up front and clean bitterness at the finish. This ale has a plush, pillowy mouth feel with pleasant carbonation, and a punchy 8.5% ABV that gives it substance without overpowering. Overall, this is an exquisite New England DIPA that merits its lofty rating.

Hazy murky deep yellow in color with a tightly bubbled white head that persists. Fruity citrus and peach with bits of resin and pine with a sweet bready maltiness.

Canned 1/12/21, in DC.

L: Pours a hazy orange-yellow. Thin head, which stays. Splotchy lacing.

S: Citrus, but with just a bit of a medicinal tint, which turns out to be a harbinger.

T: Astringent. More medicinal than citrus. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Very little fruity, floral, or hoppy in the flavor profile.

F: Medium mouthfeel. Appropriately carbonated. Doesn't burn, despite the astringency.

O: Disappointing for Other Half. It looks, smells, and feels good, but the taste is lacking. Hoping this is just the DC brewers finding their footing.

16 oz can dated 1/12/2021. This is from the DC brewery I believe.

Hops: Citra

I had this one on tap a few years ago at Other Half in Brooklyn and it was excellent. This beer? Overly astringent, bitter and dry. Little hop character in the nose and taste. Disappointing.

canned 12/29/2020 drank on 1/24/2021

pours a turbid orange with a white head that leaves a lacing across the top of the beer.

Nose is of citra - citrus with tropical fruit notes, cereal.

taste follows with fruit up front - peach, orange, tropical. minimal bitterness

feel is medium body with minimal carb.

overall - big fruit from start to finish. easy to drink, but do wish there was a little more carb and would like a lighter body.

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

Typical bright orange pour. Thin head.

The nose is heavy tropical citrus. Peach, tangerine, sweet and sticky.

Taste is big and bright. You get the tropical fruit notes, more pineapple flavor in the taste than the smell. This one is just through an through bright and fruity and really pretty sweet. Like tropical Starburst in the best way. Not an especially long or complex finish though. Not too much boozy flavor. It kind of blends in and enhances the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is a bit sticky but when the flavor is so good, you don't mind. Nice carbonation that enhances the brightness of the tropical fruit flavors.

This is a pretty solid NEIPA. Seems like this one is available fairly often and its a pretty reliable choice. I'll drink it anytime.

L: hazy golden, white head which resolves in the glass
S: pineapple, orange and lemon zest, grass
T: starts with heavy citra hops, with smooth malt and orange/passion fruit, and ends with a lingering gentle bitterness
F: full, silky, medium carbonation that fades
O: a really wonderful DIPA. Showcase of citra that rides smoothly on a malt backbone but isn’t overly sweet or bitter. One of the better OH IPAs, which is saying a lot. Buy it if you can.

Thanks to my friend DW for providing this 16 oz can.

Fairly pale golden color, hypercloudy. Pours a nice white head, creamy and lingering.

Big dank hop aroma, funky orange. An intense fruity hop aroma.

Combination of malt and fruit sweetness up front, flavors a bit more subtle than the aroma. Carries some orange flavor into the finish. Bitterness is very soft. Flavors are very rounded and smooth.

Medium body and carbonation. A bit of a tongue coater but not hop astringent. Alcohol is well controlled given the strength - minimal warming.

An intensely hoppy beer, but well done. Has a smooth flavor profile that is consistent from beginning to end. A bit dangerous given its strength.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy pale whitish yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that left a thin film of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of gooseberries and lychee are present in the nose.
T: The taste has very strong flavors of gooseberries and lychee along with notes of lime and passionfruit.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is like an explosion of Citra hops in your mouth. It's incredibly juicy yet also complex in that it has a variety of flavors.

Hazy yellow body with a white head and lacing. Lemon, orange pulp, some lime, mango, honey and dank and dry hop aromas, more potent than the orignal yet softer. The taste is stupid, gets so much juice and intensity from the smell plus pineapple, grapefruit and melon, sweet, bitter, dry, juicy, tropical and citrusy, a feast for the taste senses. Feel is soft, hazy to the max, potent yet crushable, could use a touch more hop texture variety but I'm nitpicking. Amazing

Canned on 3/3/20

Pours a turbid light honey gold body capped with a finger and a half of creamy, white foam; solid head retention yields an expansive frothy collar and vague, paper-thin cap, with chunky rings and light, soapy spots rounding the walls of the glass.

Aroma opens with soft but assertive key lime cream doused with hits of mango and a passionfruit edge; orange pulp develops across the middle as a dank, earthy tangerine accents the close.

Taste brings out orange and grapefruit pulp before a passionfruit and dirt-covered papaya tropical zest highlights the core of the profile; a faint note of creamy tangerine along with dank herbs fades into the backdrop.

Mouthfeel offers a moderate verging on dense body supported by a mild but fluffy carbonation; a pithy mid-palate featuring a rising hop acidity becomes a touch juicy over time, though primarily highlighting an easy hoppy grit and drying into a resinous finish.

Recalling bursts of Other Half's signature creaminess and harmony of tropical dank and raw earth, this DIPA manages a more raw spread of individual elements falling just short of real cohesion. Highly enjoyable in spite of missing the character to bring it to the upper-tier of the style.

Looks like juice when poured into a tulip. And smells so so full of citra hops. Mmmm. Mmmm. Smooth and very creamy. Taste follows the smell - lots of citra without a harsh hop bite. Excellent.

Milky lemon with white carpet + ribbons of froth; grapefruit, lemon hard candy, cat, lemon balm, + hop greenery on the nose; slight shortbread, then more grapefruit, lemon curd, a kronik thread, peaches, hints of honeydew, and a grassy finish; oily, soft, silky, slight heat, light piney bitterness. Mango as it opens.

Citra

Almost 6 weeks in the can - peaking or nearly past, depending on your perspective.I like to let the hop burn fade but I may have overcorrected: while all Citra notes are present + correct, they’re toned down. It slips down so easy - the body is on point - but I guess that’s the problem; I want more complexity at this strength. It just doesn’t pop. From any other brewery, amazing, but for OH, sweeter, less juicy, and hotter than their best.

Not the most expressive example of Citra I’ve had, which is a sad thing to say about any single hop Other Half beer.

L - pours a vibrant shade of yellow and orange murk. Fluffy, chewy-looking head with legs beneath the lacing.

S - immediate aromas of onion and dank, overripe banana. Spicy, glazed grapefruit. Hint of lime and even some grape candy. Warming and toasted grains.

T - tropical and muggy in its juiciness. The other Citras seem to tend more toward malts and piney florality, but this brings tha juice. Thick, saturated orange syrup and lupulin candy. Earthy grape and lactose sweetness with a hint of citrusy vanilla. A bit of melon on the finish, accompanied by sweet, buttery half and half cream.

F - silky, creamy, and soft to the touch. Minimal carbonation entices with velvet viscosity.

O - the best of the Citras. Is there lactose in here? Certainly feels like it. Eschews the herbal bitterness of usual in favor of something sweeter and more robust in its creamy decadence.

Pours an opaque pale orange that looks like a matte shade of wheat. Head is a finget of white foam, but disappates quickly. Aroma is big and bold tropical fruit that remain unchallenged or phased. Nectarine, tangerine, mango, orange and lemon all hit the nose in a barrage of citrus. Flavor profile is more citrus, but a little more refined and smooth here. Notes come via tangerine, orange, mandarin orange and nectarine. There is a little yeasty prominence at the finish, along with a bit of hop bite. The bite is staccato and short. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a pillowy texture. Overall, lots of tropical fruits and yet it feels refreshing and not overwhelming.

Draft.
