Poured from a can into my Tired Hands pint glass.

L: A super hazy almost cloudy light orange amber color. Glass lacing was spotty.

S: Loads of citrus, tropical fruits, some grass and dank and candy sweetness.

T: The Citrus really pops with grapefruit, tangerine and some lemon. Tropical fruits mix in pineapple and mango. The grassy Dank flavors mix with the huge cotton candy sweetness that comes waving through. Finish is fruity with the sweetness lingering. Not dry, but not cloying sweet.

F: Some alcohol, sweeter, and nice carbonation.

O: I’ve had a bunch of OH beers and this was not my fav. A little too sweet for me. Still, worth the try and still solid.

Pours a cloudy orange with a one finger white head that left spots of lacing. Smells of over ripe tropical fruits, citrus fruits and a hint of malt. Tastes of delicious over ripe mangoes and pineapple, sweet orange, a sweet malt presence and a bit of grass. Medium bodied and carbonation, minimal bitterness, creamy mouth feel.

This is a good beer but far from OH's best in its Green Series. Good look, smell, taste and feel but not outstanding at Green Diamonds or Forever Green. E

Picked this up at the brewery way back when and finally got around to it tonight. It's no secret that when you see "Green" in a beer from Other Half, that you're getting your hands on something deliciously addicting. This was one of those beers and one of their biggest juice bombs this side of the Mylar Bags!

Lovely pour to this as the beer had a wonderfully juicy appearance and hue to it with a near-perfect head to top it off. Not much lacing left behind though there were some scattered bubbles left on the side of my teku glass. A good amount of grass, orange juice, lemon, lime, and chalkiness were in the nose with all of those coming through in a wonderfully smooth manner in the taste. The oat malt and wheat gave this body as the lactose was a bit harder to pick out. This was probably due to the range of flavors found here as this was a bit too dank and juicy to let the sweetness fully emerge. Regardless, the carbonation was light to moderate but spot-on as there was plenty of bit and a crisp, bubbly aftertaste that kept this light and bright from start to finish.

As usual, the amount of alcohol here was higher than I would have been led to believe, as it could only be felt via a mild warming by the time I polished this off. Though canned on 3/17 with "MR. DAYDREAM" written on top it if, it held up well over the intervening 5 months. This was yet another example of how Other Half's nailing it right now, to the point where even yours truly was daydreaming in green!

Hazy golden, big white head and great lacing. Aromas of mango and dank. Notes of mango, angel food cake, dank, pineapple and vanilla. Medium body, creamy, smooth, soft and clean on the finish. Nice fruit forward and soft IPA.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, blue session. Milky, really hazy bright yellow color. Aroma is also milky, really hoppy with mango and dank notes. Taste follows, milky and dank with herbal bitterness.
