Picked this up when it was released at the brewery a few months back, finally getting around to it tonight. This was true to name as it came across as incredibly smooth, drinkable, and soft, this had a lot going for it with enough familiar and unfamiliar flavors to keep it recognizable and yet fresh at the same time!

Nice pour to this as the beer was hazy, golden, and topped off with a sufficient and long-lasting head. The lacing left behind was full with two solid rings in the midst of it, where I had paused after taking sips - can't say that I've ever seen that before! Not a strong aroma to this but what was present was lots of melon, stone fruit, pineapple, and earthiness in the nose with a wonderful extrusion of those notes in the taste. White grape, mango, a Wild Ale-like yeast, earthy funk and booze coming in in the taste. To feel this go from something smooth to something heavier and more complex was amazing to behold as this warmed up and as I worked my way through it. Enough grape slickness was here to keep this light and enjoyable in the aftertaste, once the liquid went down as this was quite tough to fully process!

The amount of booze in here was on the mark as the flavors too as they too precedence over everything else that was going on here. It was great to have the Motueka here to offset and play with the familiar-feeling Galaxy as the result was a brew that was complex but approachable enough to leave my Teku glass in a hurry. One of Other Half's more underrated offerings, this had so much going for it while being totally unassuming - isn't that what one would want in a release?

On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Hazy yellow color. Aroma is really hoppy, herbal and dank. Taste is juicy, grassy, hoppy and herbal. Medium bitterness, quite dry mouthfeel. This tastes like pure hops.

16 oz. can dated 08/10/17

Pours cloudy hazy opaque gold with a creamy white foam head. Smells like zesty lime rind, pineapple, passionfruit, tropical mango, orange citrus, lemon peel, white grapefruit, bready caramelized malts, with dank floral resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like zesty lime rind, lychee, pineapple, passionfruit, mango, orange citrus, lemon peel, white grapefruit, bready caramelized malts, some tea, with dank floral resinous earthy herbal spicy grassy pine. Feels medium-full bodied, creamy smooth with moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice double dry hopped IIPA.
