On tap at the brewery. Pours a super hazy yellowish orange with zero head. Herbal and citrus nose worth lots of melon and citrus. The taste is more of the melon with some herbal/floral/vegetal hop flavor. Hard to pinpoint really. Grapefruit, bread crust, and melon finish. Dry mouthfeel with low carbonation. Solid, but not one of my favorites by Other Half.

massive thanks to davidsoul for the local trades, psyched to get to try this one fairly fresh. from the 4/8 release a few days ago.

as you'd expect looks like a glass of juice w thin bubbly head that didn't hang out. nose is rich in hops...as if there are 4 giant hop thingies all pushing through a tiny opening to dominate but no one breaks through the crowd, so it has a nice round full scent to it. the taste is a little less frgicing and comes across as an all put hop assault...muddy hoppiness in flavor, kind of like broccoli with too much cheddar on it that everything is drowning...it's the beer equivalent of that. I'd take ddh broccoli or regular broccoli over this one if given the choice...or so I feel at this moment. and you know what happens to the moment don't ya? the moment ends.

What a crazy name(as it means nothing to the flavors in my opinion), and the can reinforces it. Short and brief, a good double IPA in that it is sweeter to begin with. More floral than citrus, and finishes pretty bitter. Not bad overall, I liked it.

Fresh 64 oz. growler.

Poured at ~45 degrees into a teku. Murky yellow-orange with a thin off-white head.

The nose is apricot, green melon, passion fruit, and cotton candy. Some skunky leafy green.

The taste is a soft blend of grapefruit pith, orange rind, and berry candy. Dry on the backend, with some white pepper and bread crust peeking through. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-minus.

Overall, 9+/10. A bit more restrained than some of the other Other Half DIPAs, which I like.
