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

Canned 9 days ago.

A: Pours straw-colored opaque with a finger of dense, white head. Excellent retention and intricate lacing.

S: Bright tangerine, intricate floral aroma with a bit of mango, grapefruit, and very light, crackery malt.

T: Fresh cut tangerine (both the flesh and pith), dried flowers, finishing with very light bitterness. A moderate amount of sweetness supports the fruit and flowers superbly.

M: Medium-full body with fairly hefty creaminess. Medium-high carbonation with decent bite.

O: Delicious and fantastically drinkable. A superb showcase of Citra. A bit green at this stage, but that doesn’t detract much.

Canned 1/14/17. Consumed 1/14/17.

A: Beer pours a light gold color with about two fingers worth of bright white fluffy head. Medium-plus to full haze on this one... Not that gravy-esque consistency, but not much light passing through either. Head sticks around for a while, eventually fading to a thin soapy layer that sits on top of the liquid.

S: Nice mix of light citrus, dank pine, and spicy hop matter on the nose. I get lots of lemon zest, earthy pine needle, and an almost black peppercorn spiciness on the backend. There's a vague hint of some sweeter fruits in there, but it's very subtle.

T: Follows the nose with big lemon and spice notes up front. Very bright and zesty with a bit of a dank pine that emerges right after the sip. Taste moves on to become more fruity than the nose, with appearances of grapefruit juice, orange, and maybe even some tangerine. Sweet crackery malt character is also there, hinting at the ABV and pushing along with that sweeter fruit profile. Finish is almost like a lingering sweet lemon juice--somewhat reminiscent of Lemongina--balanced by pithy, bitter orange peel along with more of that grassy spice. Definitely a palate wrecker, as the bitterness/sweetness 1-2 punch on this is intense.

M: Really solid mouthfeel on this one. Softly (yet heavily, as with all Other Half brews) carbonated with a medium-plus weight that works well with the citrus flavor profile to hint at (but not significantly indicate) that 'creamsicle DIPA' thing. This is definitely a sweeter beer, but there's a big smack of bitterness on the finish to keep the sweetness in check. Beer could be a bit drier, as the sticky, almost resinous/pithy citrus peel finish really lingers on the palate.

O: My first DDH offering from Other Half, and I'm impressed. Compared to the base beer, this DDH version definitely kicks up the bright citrus and spice qualities that I get as more of secondary notes in the base. This one doesn't come off as too sweet; rather, the sweetness of the base works well with the intensity of the Citra hopping to offer a really nice flavor profile of tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and lemon. If they could dial in the nose to bring out the fruitier aspects of the hops, this beer would be even better. But as it stands, it's a great new addition to OH's core lineup!

It has been two years since I returned to Other Half, and I must admit that they are still maintaining their exceptional beer qualities. This beer is truly refreshing, very nice color, with an exceptional aroma, and a great taste!

I got one can on trade from Tom C. and enjoyed it whilst grilling. It looks golden, cloudy and leaves lots of lacing. The feel is soft and smooth. The taste is all citra, pineapple mixed with apricot, and finishes slightly sweet, crisp and clean without being overly bitter. My favorite beer in a long while.

Canned 11/3/16 with "THE PINK" on the bottom, it pours bright cloudy yellow/gold color with a solid 2 finger foamy white head that was packed with bubbles, dissipating very slowly and leaving outstanding foamy lacing coating the sides and rings as it went down as well as a foamy layer on top. Another gorgeous looking Other Half DIPA.

Smells wonderful with a burst of fresh citrus zest as soon as the can cracked open. Putting my nose in the glass made it even better with juicy, ripe citrus fruit overwhelming my senses. Grapefruit, lemon, clementine, pineapple, sharp piney hops and light peppery spices all jump out and fight for attention. Mild malt and biscuit notes try to give it balance but it's basically a hop bomb exploding with All Citra Everything.

Tastes of pineapple and bitter red grapefruit up front, with a wave of zesty citrus fruit and citrus hops washing over my tongue. This comes off as intensely citrus hopped with the dry hopping evident, which brings a fairly strong bitterness along with the floral and citrus hop flavors. This is a mix of tropical fruit, orange juice, guava, melon, lemon, mango, resiny grapefruit, mild piney hops, tea leaf, fresh sticky weed, then coriander, white pepper and other light spices from the dry hops. Very floral and herbal as it ends with light biscuit or dry pizza crust. Not balanced but still really damn tasty.

I wish the bitterness was dialed down a little bit, but overall this was a great beer. The nose was so complex and inviting that it set the stage for a very pleasant experience. Mouthfeel is smooth with mild carbonation, a medium to lightly chewy body and some texture to the liquid. The finish is bitter and on the drier side with a lot of lemon zest and grapefruit pucker kicking in before it fades off with a citrus and mild grainy sweetness. The ABV is so well hidden by the extra hopping that it makes this much easier to drink than it should be for an 8.5% ABV brew. Definitely worth seeking out of you like citra hops or East Coast style DIPA's.

NOTE: Had the most recent batch of DDH ACE in Sept. 2017 and it was a lot less bitter and went down smooth as silk. It was still pungent with tons of citrus, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, clementine and floral notes, but the dank hop juice brought out more flavors of biscuit and caramel sweetness and less puckering/bitter citrus bite. Maybe a week plus in the can helped it develop overall or maybe this batch was better crafted, either way I'm raising the "Taste" from 4.25 to 4.5 and the "Feel" score from 4.25 to 4.5 which will drive the "Rating" score up from 4.45 to 4.58. Overall I found it more enjoyable the second time around.

Bought this beer when it was released, as it had a date of 11/3 with "The Pink" written above it. Love nearly everything that Other Half puts out and given that Citra is one of my favorite Hops in a beer, this was one that I eagerly anticipated having. If you like your beers juicy, wet, and drinkable, this fell into that category as it was worth the wait for this insanely enjoyable brew!

Insane amount of juice in the pour - both in terms of the look and aroma of this beer. Dank, blonde, and cloudy, there was plenty of orange, pinapple, and melon to be found in the nose with their hues equally present in the appearance of this. The head was moderate, but sufficient, and there were soapy spots of lacing left on the side of my glass as much of the liquid slid down after each sip. Smooth, juicy, and slightly dank, this beer was lightly carbonated and hid the alcohol well as the Lupulin powder made the hops quite concentrated and potent, without an excessive amount of strength or earthy bitterness.

There was alcohol here, to be sure, but it meshed well with the range of flavors here and with the carbonation being light, the flavors were allowed to shine without feeling too heavy and overdone. With the right amount of balance between juicy and dank, this beer showcased the featured hop while allowing it to be in proportion to the sweetness from the citrus and the booze that were present. A wonderful way to showcase Citra, this beer was the epitome day-hoppiness without feeling dry and a great example of what an IPA from this neck of the woods should be like. Solid stuff!

Finishing the last of my cans from the batch canned on 11/03/16. Poured a very murky orange color, resembling orange juice with a foamy white top. The smell immediately hits as you open the can and gets stronger with the pour. Tons of tropical fruit and pine jump at you. The flavor and nose are almost perfectly synced but add in some malt breadiness to the tropical fruit sweetness and pine bitterness. The feel is a little above medium verging on thick with a decent amount of carbonation. This IPA has it all. Great smell, a deep balanced flavor, and very easy to drink for the ABV.

16oz. can into a Surly teku.

Nose is wonderful! Aromas of cane sugar, citrus fruit, clementine sweetness and a dank hop presence. Very aromatic. Beer opens intensely juice. Notes of orange, starfruit and pineapple. Like an overripe tropical bouquet. More malt body in the middle that carries a touch of honey and a light, fruity tartness at the finish. No hop presence at all. Body is light to medium with ample carbonation. Dry and prickly on the palate and bone dry going down.

Very good though at time I wish the flavor profile were a little more on the clean side. Still excellent though.

From can. Really hazy, milky golden color with creamy off-white head. Aroma has ripe peaches and some spoiled pineapple. Taste is sweet at first, juicy with some overripe fruits and light hop and alcohol burn on the finish. Low bitterness, hop astringency. Full bodied, smooth carbonation. Overall a really nice NE style DIPA.

Poured from a 16oz can into a snifter.

Pours a hazy, light golden body with a frothy head that dissipates slowly to leave sticky lacing.

Tons of pineapple, apricot and juicy hops in the aroma. Flavor follows the aroma...hop candy on the tongue. Medium bodied with medium carb. Overall, an outstanding IPA!
