look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Himmeriget.

Pours a hazy yellow, with soft, fine foam.

Smell is so juicy and sweet, with mango, pineapple and lemon augmented by some vanilla.

Taste follows the nose very well, and adds a superb hop bite and spot on bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and creamy, well carbonated.

Overall, this is great, so tasty and drinkable.

Given to me by a friend.
Decanted into from a 16 oz (453 ml) conical pint glass; production date 12/26/17 along with admonition to "Stay Zesty."
A: Pours an opaque, orange amber color with less than a quarter inch, white head with low retention but limited lacing.
S: Very fruity with orange, grapefruit, peach and definitely mango aromas. A little earthy.
T: Flavors follow the nose. Bitterness subsumed by loud flavors, but clearly present in nice proportion leaving a tingling on the tongue.
M: Light to medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Smooth and very creamy.
O: Another NEDIPA from Other Half that really delivers. The oats add dramatically to the overall effect. Would drink/serve/share.

On tap at Burial Beer Co. in Asheville. Interesting to find something from Other Half this far south and they did a collab with Burial on another beer called Sangies.

A - Poured into a tulip glass with almost two fingers of thick white head. A yellowish-orange thick color like fruit juice. Very light lacing down the glass and I was expecting more.

S -Citrus bomb with grapefruit, tangerine, and maybe some apricot. The mosaic hops really set this one off and that NE IPA comes through.

T - Fantastic mix of the citrus fruits and mosaic hops. So smooth and drinkable. A little bite of alcohol toward the middle of the pour.

F - Medium carbonation that balances the thickness.

O - A super drinkable NE style DIPA. I would definitely get another one if I could find it.

Pours a very cloudy yellow gold color with a one finger head. Aroma is pungent with grapefruit and lemon notes. Taste is similar but a pineapple note that come through in the finish. Really fantastic combo. Malt is light and bitterness is light to moderate. Feel is very smooth and creamy, hence the "oat cream" designation.

This is just an awesome beer. Perfect balance.

Bought this a while ago, as the date on the bottom of the can read 4/28 with "WET DREAMS" (really?) written above it. Uncomfortable feeling aside, this was an amazingly smooth beer that was taken to the next level because of the addition of lactose from the Daydream in Green. It didn't feel like there was any alcohol in this as the sweetness and fruit flavors took hold from the get-go and never let go!

Lovely pour to this as the beer had a dank, apricot hue with plenty of head to top it off. Not a lot of lacing to be seen as there were only scattered wisps of bubbles left on the side of my teku glass. That was about the only uninspiring aspect of this beer since I was hooked from the first sniff. Light tangerine, sweetness from the lactose, citrus, and mild oat all came through with more to be found in the taste. That was amazing given the intermingling of the flavors, fullness of the body, and softness of the hops. With a plushness that would put a pillow to shame, it's easy to say this *could* be the smoothest beer that I've ever had. Creamy like oatmeal and sweet as a vanilla ice cream cone, it's hard to say that I've ever had anything so inviting as this, the didn't feel like a beer in any aspect.

Oh sure, there was booze here but you'd only know that by looking at the label on the can. With a freshness like cut grass and mild dankness that could only be found in an Other Half brew, it was obvious there this liquid's roots lie. No wonder there's clouds in this label's design - you'll feel like you're on number 9 when you have this! Easily one of Other Half's best, which would be saying a lot given their impressive lineup...

Hazy golden with orange hues, small to medium white head and nice lacing. Soft citrusy hop aroma. Notes of pineapple, citrus pulp, tangerine, orange, and oatmeal. Medium, creamy, fluffy and dry. Really nice hazy northeast IPA.

L - Hazy orange juice which yielded a generous amount of head
S - Orange, stone fruits, mango
T - Slight oat flavor mixed with pineapple, papaya, orange, etc
F - Oat gives this beer an extremely fluffy mouthful with zero awkward astringent alcohol after-taste that some of these beers give

Absolutely amazing offering from Other Half, one of my favorites.

This beer is extraordinary. Pours a hazy yellow-orange, smells of fruity oatmeal. The feel and taste are both very creamy. Taste combines oats, cream, and mosaic fruitiness into a delicious package.

Wow. Double Mosaic Dream just got creamier. This is amazing. Fluffy mouthfeel with the same DMD profile. Other half seriously knows what to do with mosaic hops.

A combo of Daydream in Green and Double Mosaic Dream. Brings the oats and lactose from Daydream and the Mosaic from Double Mosaic into one... Medium gold, organic orange juice-looking beer, with a big off-white foam head and lotsa messy lace trailing behind... Aromas of orange and blackberry preview similar elements on the taste... Juicy, fruity, fluffy, and soft - some of the oat comes through on the taste, but mostly on the feel... Plush carbonation and feel, smooth and airy... Another great venue for the Mosaic hop... 4/28/17 canning

Love the beer. Confusing name. It seems as far as branding that the only difference between the double mosaic dream and the double mosaic day dream is the word DAY.

That said, the beers are different. A nice mashup of my 2 favorite Other Half beers.

I really love the double mosaic alone for what it is.

And I think daydream in green kicks assss. It's actually my favorite beer they make I think.

KAPOW!!! There it is!!! This is the one...HUGE mosaic hops blast through bigly, but massive balls on the backend to support the insane dosage of hops. the oats in these double dry hopped bombs really just makes it and I suppose that hint of lactose must be helping as well cause this has some magic to it. Best Other Half for me to date.
