Sweet tropical hoppy, bready-malty, and hint of tropical dank nose on this one! Taste follows with a sweet malty and mosaic dank finish...some sweet floral berry notes pop up as it warms. This is juicy-soft on the palate...really good!

Cloudy orange haze. Lots of tropical fruit and citrus. Very mild spice. Hefty orange and grapefruit, nice juice quotient, medium lighter caramel, oats, medium fuller bodied with soft carbonation, very mild floral and zesty bitterness. Great stuff.

Very dense hazy pour of pulpy orange juice hues. Rich and juicy tropical fruit aromas that rank with the best Other Half has to offer. Ripe melon, pulpy guava, pineapple and mango. The rich taste carries those hints and adds creamsicle and raw honey notes. This is some mouthful with all that fruit but you do get a hint of the oat grain that OH frequently employs. The Mosaic is just ever so noticeable but I wish it was a little more front and center. Great mouthfeel on this one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

16oz can, dated 03.29.2021, poured into a stemless wine glass.

The beer pours a very hazy and turbid orange color, amber hues with a foamy white head, about two fingers tall with good retention and excellent lacing. The aroma is pleasant, lots of fragrant tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, berry fruits, tangy citrus peel, some dank weediness with a nice bright floral bouquet, pale dough, lactose sugar and sweet yeast. The flavors are good, very bright and tropical, lots of orange and grapefruit, pineapple and mango puree, a bit of creaminess, berry fruits emerge as it warms with a nice floral quality, soft dank and weediness, mild earthy bitterness with lots sweet yeast, mineral water, and soft pale dough. The mouthfeel is good, coating, creamy, fluffy medium body that finishes easily, sweetly, and lightly dry.

Verdict: A nice NEIPA from Other Half. Super tropical and fruit forward with nice floral qualities. It borders on being too sweet for my palate, but there is just enough earthiness and tanginess that lets this one toe the line fairly well.

Hazy dark orange with a finger of pearl white foam. Other half does it again! Let's start with the body, super hazy, creamy, soft, yet juicy and bright, somehow is elevated by the hops on the finish, amazing. Taste and smell both harvest the juicy tropical fruits and grapefruit fully. Fruit is super ripe in the taste, more just juice in the nose. Leans sweeter but not to the extent of being a focal point. So smooth and delicious, well worth your time

Canned 11/5/20
Murky brownish orange, tons of foam and sticky lacing. Intense aroma, equal parts tropical fruit and dank botanicals. Candied orange, mango, jackfruit, peaches and cream, fresh sweet florals. Taste is fruity and fairly sweet with a nice bitterness to balance. Mango, jackfruit, tangerine, hints of bubblegum. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and ample hop bite. Overall it's pleasant and packed with a lot of intense hop aroma/flavor. Thanks to Thomas for this one!

A 1 pint can, canned on 7th May 2020. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.

Appearance: A hazy yellowish orange colour with a just over two finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.

Aroma: Sweet peach and apricot ice cream, mango, citrus zest, grapefruit rind, with notes of melon and dankness.

Taste: Light to moderate sweetness, overripe mango, orange creamsicle, mandarin, grapefruit rind and zest, light to moderate lasting bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to moderate bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.

Overall: Very nice and smooth. Sweet and bitter balance is perfect with lots of tropical and citrus fruits.

Pours straight orange haze. Nice white head. Sticks around with some lacing.
Smell is mango and tropical but muted. Not jumping out of the glass
Taste is balanced. Citrus tropical. Can’t pony any specific flavors. Finishes slightly dry with a touch of sweetness. Super easy to drink. Great beer

Big thanks to VaTechPhilly for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a J. Wakefield OG Club teku glass. I did not make note of canning nor consumption dates, but did note that the can was about three weeks old at the time of review. Batch is from early 2018.

A: Turbid gold with orangish highlights, with a half-finger of white had that has decent retention. Low visible carbonation, but is almost opaque.

S: Tropical fruits for days, orange-forward citrus juice with a touch of ruby red grapefruit. Pineapple and mango and some melon. Some dank and herbal hops as well. Light cracker malts. This is really juicy, but more melon pulls through here than some other NE IPAs – not a ding against it, but maybe not my preference. Nice.

T: Taste follows the nose pretty closely. Juicy tropical fruits, melon, and citrus. Mango, pineapple, and perfectly ripe tangerine. Milder dank earthiness, a mild citrus pith bitterness, and then more juicy citrus and melon. A light cracker malt body underneath, but the hops are obviously the star of the show. Maybe a touch of fullness and soft breadiness from the oats, but it’s not pronounced. Mildly bitter in the hang with an orange juice-like fruitiness.

M: A medium body but this does have a creamy mouthfeel from the oats. This is accentuated by the relatively low carbonation sensation, but it fits this beer quite nicely. Alcohol presence restrained.

O: Really tasty. I think this is my second Other Half beer, but the first that I’ve had a full pour of - and it was really enjoyable. Maybe a little more melon than would be a perfect hop profile for me personally. But very tasty.

Can poured into stemless teku.

Orange, hazed, thick off white foamy head.

Deep and layered hop aroma, punch in the nose of fruit/earth/resins.

Layers of tropical fruit flavors with resinous, grassy, earthy hops. Citrus zest and rind.

Moderate carbonation and medium body, soft.

Great mosaic flavors.

16oz can poured into a tulip

A- pours a slightly hazy orange color with a one-finger foamy white head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- herbaceous and loaded with tropical fruits on the nose; mango, guava, pineapple, passionfruit, cantaloupe and grapefruit zest. Undertones of milk sugars and vanilla

T- bold tropical fruity hops up front with flavors of mango, pineapple, passionfruit and ripe melon, followed by a zesty citrus note of grapefruit and tangerine. Mid-palate brings out some herbaceous notes, along with a hint of milky lactose that adds an element of vanilla. The finish continues with a onslaught of tropical fruity hops and lingers of citrus zest, mango and hint of lactose sweetness

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns into a creamy, crisp finish

O- an outstanding showcase of the mosaic hop that explodes with tropical fruits throughout

Pours a medium yellow color, hazy. Amazing hop aroma - lots of tropical fruits: pineapple, guava, citrus. Wallop of dankness. Very flavorful, I get lots of pineapple, dank guava, light pone, lemon zest. Carbonation is appropriate, kind of thick feel. Overall an outstanding DIPA.

Poured into a snifter. An opaque acorn yellow color with a medium sized soapy head. Blueberries, papaya, and tangerines on the nose. The taste was typical Mosaic (to me) with all the above flavors. Slightly sweet and the malt was restrained. The beer had some heft from the lactose, but not at milkshake level. Creamy, smooth feel. Outstanding.

Cloudy vibrant orange with a finger of yellowed head. Thick rings of lacing.

Clementines, light white pepper, vanilla and herbs in the nose.

Lighter tasting than expected. Watered orange citrus and dull, piney, somewhat-chalky bitterness show the most when cold. As it warms, there’s a hint more vanilla and herb.

Medium bodied, relatively slick, with moderate carbonation.

Very pretty looking and decent-enough flavors, but it comes across dull and watered-down for an 8.5% beer.

Pours a murky yellow color with a medium sized head, receeding to a small ring of lacing.

Smells of a profound, herb accompanied lime quality, freshly dried kush and blueberries. This is quite remarkable on the nose, bringing up a kiwi fruitiness, as well as dried green apple and pomelo, all helping to enhance the profound lime impression.

Has a fuller body, exhibiting a creamy mouthfeel with a lower, well fitting carbonation.

Tastes of a sudden lemon bitterness, inheriting a noble, old world vibe among wet grass and blueberries. Turns a little more refreshing then, although the mouthfeel seems to become even creamier with some kiwis and ice-bonbon cutting through. Finishes with even more intense flavors of herbs, lime and ice-bonbon with a lighter, lasting bitterness.

This tastes and smells equally intense of mosaic, highlighted by the beer‘s great mouthfeel. Very convincing on all levels, with just the right amount of bitterness in the end.

Pours a hazy golden orange with two fingers of tightly formed white head. The head fell faster than I expected.
Smells of orange, tangerine, some vanilla.
Taste follows, orange and tangerine, the sweetness isn't too over the top but just enough to give it an orange creamsicle taste.
Medium to full body, creamy texture, good carb levels.
Overall a wonderful beer, well balanced, hops and sweet cream combine nicely.

Hazy yellow with a soft film and thick collar.

This is a milkshake IPA in disguise. Vanilla and Orange Julius flavors come through a creamy body that has a soft but tingly carbonation expanding softly on the palate. This is accented by green eucalyptus and wild weeds before the semi-dry finish brings out some smoothing oats, brightening Smarties and kiwi.

Poured from can /OH Roc release 4/19.
Brief but beautiful plump fluffy head. Dissipated quickly but excellent lacing. Nose is quiet but noticeable rich orange/tangerine with some bubblegum. Taste is rich. Orange creamsicle with Mosaic on Mosaic. Rounded with mild Tangerine peel bitterness as beer finished. Lactose evident... milk/cream-sweetness. Feel is SO Smooooth. Easy sip/swallow with reasonable brightness in otherwise soft carbonation. Just about perfect for a DIPA... to my preference anyway.
Noticed when this sold out fast... so heightened expectations.
Oat / lactose contributions more in my wheelhouse, and swung this as more enjoyable than another fav... TH Julius.
Now I know why. Just a great IPA.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Captain Lawrence custom tasting pint glass; canned on 4/16/19.
A: Pours a cloudy orange-yellow color, with a no more than one finger, white head, limited retention, and nice complex rings of Brussels lacing.
S: Aromas of tangerine, tutti-fruity, grapefruit, and caramel predominate with a very light pine and oregano notes.
T: Surprisingly dry, certainly at least semidry in my estimation. Flavor is cracker with fruitiness more in the lemon, lime, white grapefruit end of citrus, some very real and pronounced graininess (which adds), a vegetable piece (celery, oregano, daring I say cilantro) and a cumin-like bitterness that is really, really interesting.
M: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy, juicy, and luscious.
O: Fascinating that an Other Half "oat cream" NEIPA really isn't that sweet. Not a criticism -- more an encouragement, keeping experimenting!

Recently canned, and it feels even better than the one I had in the brewery on tap a couple of weeks ago. And it was the same batch. For some reason, I think individual cans are generally better than keg.
Quite hazy orange and peach juice aspect with a thick head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Fresh tropical aroma to die for with notes of mango, tons of stone fruit, passion fruit, pine, fresh squeeze oranges, natural grapefruit and melon.
Flavor with notes of mango, pine resin, melon, white pepper, oat, faint but perceivable milk powder, grapefruit, pineapple, papaya, tangerine, onions, biscuit, lychees and guava. Dry aftertaste with a stronger bitterness that apparently feels. It made me sneeze after my first sip. Alcohol of 8.5% is very well disguised.
Medium velvety body with perfect carbonation.
Delicious DIPA with beyond expected tropical notes and green dank resins. Great complexity and wide range of flavors matched perfectly. At some point, I had to stop to further look for flavors. This has sat for 2 weeks and it sure better than the one I had from the same batch on tap in the brewery. I am start to think that we should drink the style fresh, but not that fresh.

DDH Double Mosaic Daydream has been on my wishlist for some time now - I was quite happy to try it when a fellow BA reached out to set up a trade. The cans were quite fresh - less than two weeks old - and the beer is tasting fantastic. Poured in to a teku, the color is a lovely golden orange with a thick white head. Carb is light and the mouth feel is very pleasant - just a bit creamy, quite rich, and the finish is decently clean. It's quite definitely on the sweeter side of the spectrum, and once it warms up, and trace of bitterness virtually disappears.

It's not a particularly balanced beer as far as hops go - it's definitely a very sweet IPA - but it's damn fine for what it is. That milk sugar is certainly present in the creaminess and sweetness! I wouldn't want to sit on these beers - I can't imagine they will age well.

Can to wine glass.

Biggest difference from Dream to Daydream is less citrus, more grassy.

Results in less nose and a bit of offputting flavors in the finish. Still excellent...just takes a backseat to the real "Dream".

Pours a turbid orange creamsicle like with a thick white head on heavy pour. Nose is of a fresh cut fruit bouquet. Citrus and tropical fruits mingle in harmony with stone fruit ;) The taste of this thing is amazing! Papaya, mango, melon, peaches, guava, grapefruit and lemon. Did I miss any fruit? Almost has a orange creamsicle like quality to it minus the lactos or vanilla of course. Light breads malts balance this one out superbly. Medium to full body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and smooth finish.
