drinking this at over a month old as I received in a trade past optimal freshness. pours out a hazed golden color with a dense and creamy bright white head that leaves excellent lacing. nose is somewhat subdued, some dank and citric notes playing with a sweetish malt quality. on palate it pops a little more, and brings ripe mango, soft peach, grapefruit, orange, herbaceous grassy note, sweet bready malts, danky earth, and a mellow hit of slightly resinous pine on the finish. super well balanced and rounded, perhaps due in part to the age. would love to try this fresh but hot dayummm this one held up nicely, cheers!

This beer pours a completely opaque, super murky, golden orange color with a two finger, creamy, frothy white head. Retention is above average and there are tons of chunky rings and patches of lacing left all over the glass.

Smell is very bright, dank and fruity. Mango, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, and lemon pith are all present in spades as well as a bit of dank earthiness and pine.

Taste is the same. Very juicy up front with a bit of pith and pine providing a moderately bitter finish.

Feel is exceptional. Medium bodied, soft and juicy with a bit of a sticky and prickly finish. No alcohol presence whatsoever.

Overall this is a fantastic beer. I love how Other Half is able to capture that amazing fruitiness and pillowy soft feel of the NEIPA, but still maintain a bit of that old school punchy bitterness. Another knockout from these guys.

Drank on tap at Other Half Brewing Co., Brooklyn, NY
Served in a tulip

Cloudy yellow ochre appearance. The nearly opaque liquid was topped by a small, frothy white cap that quickly dissolved. Minimal spotty lacing stuck along the glass.

The aroma was amazingly hoppy and bright. Super dank and juicy. Cannabis definitely came to mind. Intense citrus notes too. Loads of juicy orange and tangerine. Some crisp wheatiness as well. Perhaps a bit simplistic overall but flawless nevertheless.

The flavor profile was very similar to the nose and nearly as impressive. Citrus notes dominated. Loads of orange. Both juicy flesh and pithy rind. Tangerine was also noticeable. Somewhat tart and tangy. Pineapple also came to mind. More punchy orange notes and pithy grapefruit rind on the back end and in the finish. A fair amount of bitterness lingered after the swallow.

Outstanding mouthfeel. Super smooth and supple. Creamy and slick on the palate. Fuller bodied for the style. The liquid contained an amazingly fine, frothy effervescence that fluffed up beautifully on the palate.

Other Half Brewing continues with their mission of putting out some of the greatest hoppy beers on the planet, and Double Dry Hopped Mylar Bags is possibly one of their most impressive releases to date. This is a truly fantastic representation the style.
