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

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

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.

(16 oz can, 06/09/21; gifted a single... poured into a fat tulip)

L: beautiful, thick, dense, crusty foam atop an opaque, moonlight yellow liquid... excellent head retention; several rings of crystalline lace

S: pithy citrus w/ floral undertone... delicate musky tone slowly creeps out, even a bit of honeyed cereal grain... nice (maybe too) subdued yet layered array of aromas... herbal and marginally earthy-minty tone emerges to the fore

T: floral static, subtly gin-like herbal melange... notably dry aftertaste with a soft doughy note lingering on the sides of the palate in the cheeks... vague bubblegum hum after a few sips, obscured within the (again, dry) tropical candy powder fog... the alcohol is apparent, buried in the background, certainly affecting a burst in expressiveness about 1/3 through the volume... the booze-bitter interplay shapes a herbal accent over say capsicum heat or spicy spice... a pool of static; latent grapefruit milk

F: fortified, attenuated nectar; a sheet of resins and oils, lifted... quietly luscious and seductive

O: hmm... an ascent to the stars... a standout among the relatively few NEIPAs I've tasted... this is more to my flavor preferences, as in like a NEIPA-WCIPA-kellerbier hybrid(?)... The first of I hope several ventures into the world of Other Half (1822)

Who's rating these things? A 99? Come on now. Double Dry Hopped Double Mosaic Dream -- that's a 99. It is excellent. Space Diamond is really good. I've had about 8 other Other Halfs. Those other 8… average. No need as far as I'm concerned to get into the details, just head into these giant ratings with a bit of skepticism. It seems like if the ABV is high enough, the rating is less stringent. I mean this beer is fine. It's not objectionable in any way, but it's just an average higher-ABV DDH sweet Hazy NEIPA. Add it to the pile. Don't give it a 99. My can was less than a month old, so it's fresh.

Pours a hazy yellow orange color with a medium bodied white colored head that laces the glass nicely on the way down. Smells of sweet toasted malts then a big floral/piney and then mainly grapefruity hops. Tastes of sweet toasted malt and then mainly grapefruity hops and a hint of melon in there as well. Smooth, velvety, nice amount of carbonation. Overall, excellent beer!
