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

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy dark yellow in color. It poured with a finger high frothy white head that died down but left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of lychee are present in the nose along with notes of grapefruit.
T: The taste has flavors of lychee and cantaloupe melon along with notes of lime and hints of grapefruit, the latter of which becomes stronger as the beer warms up. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked the prominent flavors of cantaloupe melon in this New England-style IPA.

Canned 2/18/20 poured into 16oz tulip.

Pours a turbid straw yellow with hints of darker orange juice. Half-finger pure white head that disappears aka it immediately. The nose is orangey citrus, grapefruit rind and some hop sweetness. Taste follows the nose, this is very well balanced for a double dry hopped beer. Some dank citrus flavors with a hint of peach and grapefruit. Perfectly carbonated leaving a mouthfeel quite typical for the style. Overall very good! Would like to have tried a regular Mylar Bags for comparison.

16oz can, 10.31.19 stamped on the underside, poured into a 14oz snifter glass.

The beer pours a thick and turbid orange color, copper and golden hues with a foamy white head that has nice height, retention and yields plenty of sticky and soapy lacing. The aroma is very pleasant, loads of grapefruit peel, candied hop, bubblegum, wildflower, sticky resin and raw hop leaf with pale dough and mineral water. The flavors are very good, juicy and tangy tropical fruits, grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple, grassy and green, resinous and bitter with a nice floral and very sweet bubblegum finish while there is an underlying doughy malt base. The mouthfeel is good, coating and creamy, with a lively medium body that finishes easily and with a sweet bite.

Verdict: A nice NEIPA from Other Half. Perhaps a bit sweet but there is a nice bitterness and juiciness to the beer.

Very artsy packing with the beat up cans and pack holder, fun. Super hazy and somewhat murky orange body with a white head. Smells of pineapple, grapefruit pith, mango, papaya, lime, weed and grass in the hops. Taste is much the same, with added lemon, lychee, guava, and some dank dry onion hops. Feel is light, airy, hazy, drier, thick, and smooth, refreshing even.

Citrus and pine aroma. Full, fat mouthfeel. Flavor of citrus up front and pine at the finish with a slight bitterness and tang. No chalkiness or hop burn. One of the best hazy IPAs I have had the pleasure to drink.

L: Pours a hazy yellow light orange color. An aggressive pour results in a big foamy white head that fades quickly but leaves some very nice lacing around the glass.
S: Grass and pine that leads to orange, peach, and grapefruit.
T: The taste follows the smell, grapefuit, orange, peach with low bitterness. No hop burn or chalky taste.
F: Creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation and body.

L - pours a pinkish, orange..ish peach mango juice haze. Glows healthily with a jiggly jell-o head.

S - bright and peachy with a hint of cantaloupe. Creamsicle smoothness with a layer of oniony, resinous hops to round off any sharp corners.

T - peach jam and orange marmalade. I remember the OG being zestier! The saturated hops suffocate any particularly daring flavors and amp up the candied creaminess. Ripe mango and ruby red grapefruit doused with a healthy layer of sugar. Vague honeydew melon until the rind sets in. Oniony and bitter... there's my zest! Just waited til the finish. Well-crafted bitterness begs another sip.

F - soft and dreamily fluffy. Slick with deceptive viscosity. Feels heavy and thick on one hand, but it's more of a silky velvet on the other.

O - nailed in in the aroma section. The extra dry hops usually amplify bitterness and acidity, but in this case, they polish off the rough edges for a much smoother, flowing, creamy experience.

Ddh mylar @ OH

Pours a saturated hazed yellow color with a smaller, stable head.

Smells of cactus juice, kiwi, water melon and exotic fruit sorbet. Has a nice lime quality atop, as well as some unripe strawberries and bright grapefruit, creating a very well rounded, complex nose.

Has a thick, creamy mouthfeel with a decent spark of effervescence at the back end, making this quite refreshing and easy drinkable.

Tastes of oranges, mango and kiwi, amped up by a powerful, lemon defined bitterness. All the flavors benefit from the beer‘s smooth mouthfeel, giving this a milkshake like impression, which coats the tongue with a well chosen fruit basket. Finish with even more bitter citrus, while the fruits appear a little riper, with pineapple and mango upfront.

This is truly intense and well brewed. Fantastic complexity meets world class mouthfeel, creating a beast of a beer, which is highly drinkable at the same time.

I only rarely get my hands on Other Half beer these days, though it seems to a little more easily had these days - but the hype around this particular beer has always made it a wish list item. Plus, I love double dry-hopped beers.

DDH Mylar Bags distinguishes itself as a bit of a different IPA in the tropical fruit notes - most particularly, to my palate, the pineapple notes in the nose and taste. It's also quite dry, though very sweet, with a fairly clean finish. It's very hazy and thick, not exactly a casual drinking beer though very drinkable. I just can't imagine drinking more than one or two at a sitting - it's very filling and substantial.

Overall, it's quite a good beer - very memorable.

Pours a cloudy orange. Lots of hops going on - El dorado, Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic and Armarillo. Good combination. Limited bitterness in aftertaste. Good head and mild aftertaste.

Pours an opaque orange that turns into a murky burnt-orange when the final ounces are poured from the can into the glass. Head formation is pretty good, netting a finger and a half of white foam. Head has good retention. Aroma is orange peel, tangerine, papaya, lemongrass, and melon-dew. There is a light biscuit malt note, but faint compared with the onslaught of hops. Flavor profile is dripping with hops, without being very soupy or confused. Hops hit notes of orange peel, tangerine, mango, papaya, and lemon zest. Biscuit and bread malts form a firm foundation and actually show throw the dense curtain of hops, making for a well balanced DIPA. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a lightly grainy texture. Overall, a great double-dry hopped NE IPA, showing good balance despite having an absolute onslaught of hop notes from the get-go. Mouth feel is not chalky, which makes it much better than other well-known NE IPA producers' double-dry hopped offerings.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

01/2017 - One of the better Other Half IPAs I've had to date; combines the big ethanol quality of that I've come to expect from OH with the fruity, zesty, yet still hoppy qualities reminiscent of NEIPAs.

On tap at the brewery, Brooklyn.
That OH look; lemon verbena, grapefruit rind, kronik, and mint; cream cracker, creamsicle, ganga, limeade, peach, watermelon… I could go on; dead creamy.

Mosaic, Citra, Galaxy, El Dorado, Amarillo

Deep nose. Hops duck and dive. Feathery, green, bouncy, and fun. Considering their usual standard, it’s insanity that there’s room for this to be so much better. Their best yet, and one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had.

No canned on date! Bummer, but It’s from the 8/11 release.

The pour is an awesome hazy deep orange, with a nice finger and half of frothy white head that leaves amoebas of laces around the rim of the glass.

On the nose, subtle hints of grassy, piney hops keep bursts of tropical fruits, sweet candy, and tangerine at the perfect level. Great balance of aromas.

Tropical candy flavors, subtle hints of lemon and grapefruit. Milk sugar sweetness and light booze in the finish. Slight bitterness initially, but finishes smoooooth.

Creamy, juicy mouthfeel. Moderate filminess and slight boozy warmth. Subtle but present carb. Great all around.

Probably the best all round hops I’ve had. So so drinkable with the signature other half mouth feel. Tropical fruit on the nose and mouth, can’t say enough how soft this is. A masterpiece

L - 2-finger high density offwhite head atop a vibrant, orange juice body. No light shall pass through this one.

S - orange, grapefruit, mango, cotton candy, a little pine.

T - grapefruit slices topped with a sprinkle of sugar. Only a little sweetness. Some dirt in the middle, along with a little unexpected sourness. Slightly chalky finish. Moderate bitterness. No booze at all.

F - medium-full body with expected level of carb for the style.

O - very pleasing, and goes down way too quickly, especially for the abv.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) bag into a conical pint glass; production date 11/18/18.
A: Pours an opaque, golden (slightly brown of that) color with a one inch, foamy white head, strong retention and rings of lacing.
S: Fruity. Aromas peach, tangerine, and maybe some pineapple mix with a graininess.
T: Dry. Tastes more on the grapefruit side of citrus with the pitted fruit secondary. Strong, lightly roasted maltiness forms a strong backbone with solid bitterness as a counterpoise.
M: Closer to full bodied than medium with solid carbonation. Drinks remarkably crisply for the style.
O: Really a treat. NE style IPA from NY -- ?NYIPA. Another home run from Other Half.

Typical OH NEIPA pour...leaves nice fine scattered lacing.

Juicy, juicy ripe pineapple nose.

Quite delicious stuff, with a load of more ripe and luscious pineapple juice, dry and soft hoppy finish....fresh, flavorful, over the top tasty....keep on rockin' OHBC

This one pours a hazy murky yellow-ish color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

The aroma just blasts your nose out of the glass- tons of tropical fruits, soft and sweet, with a hint of black tea and pine.

This is absolutely great- it's probably my favorite Other Half beer at this point. It's a maelstrom of tropical and citrusy hops, with a small amount of tea-like and piney bitterness.

This is soft, pillowy and juicy, with a good level of carbonation and drinkability.

This is absolutely awesome. This is as good as IPA gets.
