by Holderness from Massachusetts

Canned 3 weeks ago. Brewed at the DC location.

L -- Hazy golden orange with two fingers of dense white head produced with moderate pour. Great retention and lacing
S -- Vanilla, perfumed floral, citronella, creamy malts, orange sherbert, hint of mango. Not super expressive, but pleasant
T -- Sweet floral and tropical fruits, with a bit of citrus and green bitterness on the back
F -- Soft and quaffable, especially for the ABV
O -- Definitely one of the better Other Half offerings I've had to date. Lots of creaminess and vanilla throughout

86/100

No evident canning date. Poured into an Other Half snulip glass. It pours an opaque, bright, dirty tangerine color with almost a finger of fluffy, milk-white head and thick, clinging lacing. Lots of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, and pineapple on the nose along with floral hops. There is a good balance of sweet and tart citrus, including the aforementioned lemon, grapefruit, orange/tangerine, and pineapple, and notes of ripe melon but the malt provides a rich, earthy backdrop from the oats and wheat. Others have commented on the hop burn but I find the bitterness to be clean and manageable. The mouth feel is terrific: rich and fluffy with appropriate carbonation, and the 8.5% ABV gives it good substance without overpowering. Overall, I have a feeling that this can is past its prime. It's a fine NEIPA for sure but I can't justify the World-Class rating.

A high rating for sure but it's well deserved. Melon + grapefruit nose with a hazy appearance in the glass. Citrus notes abound with a creamy mouthfeel and satisfying finish. NEIPA lovers will swoon for this beer that's on par with Treehouse, in my opinion. Cheers

Pours a milky hazy yellow/gold; one finger of creamy white foam; excellent cap retention; heavy ring and medium heavy lacing. Earthy hoppy grapefruit nose. Taste follows with bitter grapefruit peel. Full minus body; no astringency; grainy/dusty feel; moderate minus carbonation. Overall, another drinkable (for me) hazy from OH; not too full or fluffy; enjoyable light bitter linger. Nice.

16 oz. can. Cloudy yellow. Smells of acidic fruit, sweet pale malt, earthy yeast. Tastes of sharply tangy hops: passion fruit, lime. Garlic and onion behind it, lingering into the finish. Sweet, but the sharp and earthy hops overwhelm it. Finishes dry and leafy. Medium body. It's intense. Not bad for the style, but abrasive and not all that easy to drink.

a: very hazy and fluffy looking dark orange color. a hint of creamy yellow in there with some copper. pours a 1.5 finger solid white head

s: tangerines and grapefruit upfront. mango, pineapple, peaches follow. some crackers, tangy citrus zest, and some creamsicle. a hint of guava, strawberry, and kiwi towards the end as well. aroma on this is so creamy

t: like the aroma, grapefruit and tangerines upfront. some decent earthy and grapefruity bitterness is apparent immediately. creamsicles, orange juice, guava behind that. some mango sorbet and a touch of that tangy pineapple. a nice crackery note and a bit of raw hop burn on the tongue

m: medium, super fluffy mouthfeel. medium carbonation

o: awesome beer, and another example for me of why NEDIPA should be a style. this does a great job of being tropical, and getting it's sweetness from the hops - not sweet sticky malts. mouthfeel is spot on. i'd like perhaps just a little bit less burn. still great stuff

16 fl oz pull-tab can courtesy of Edms79 - thanks, man!

Served into a nonical pint glass. 8.5% ABV. Imperial India Pale Ale.

Acidic and juicy with ripe citrus and pulpy flavours. Orange, mango, papaya, Naked/Odwalla juice.

Hop pungency could be better, but it's a lovely well balanced IIPA with a nice hop profile.

B / GOOD

My third Other Half IPA and it’s about a perfect example of the style as I have had.
Creamy and soft mouthfeel. Not too sweet and do too dry. Mango, orange, pineapple aroma and flavor.

10oz pour at The Blind Tiger.

Pours a hazy light orange with a creamy head. Smell is powerful -- very powerful. Lots of citrus zest and a little booze, light hop resin.

Taste is very boozy, somewhat floral, with a substantial resin bitterness.

Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth and pleasing. Overall, it's good, but would be better if it wasn't as boozy.
