Name: Triple Cream
Brewery: Other Half
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Style: New England IPA
ABV 10%
Date: Unknown
The label is hard to read, and I did not see a date on the can either. Using a tulip glass, I served the beer at 48 degrees. A frothy and creamy two-fingered head was created from the pour. The retention is above average, dissipating slowly and leaving some lacing on the glass. Charting the color somewhere near SRM 6, pale gold with light straw color hues. The clarity is hazy, with carbonation bubbles visible. The appearance of the beer is excellent.
Nosing the glass, I smell oats, lightly toasted malts, crackers, peaches, passion fruit, mangos, light floral esters, pineapple, oranges, and just a touch of green grass. Reminds me of breaking hops pellets in my hand and huffing for several minutes. This beer is fresh!
I taste loads of breakfast cereal with a parade of hops and a little bit of milk mixed in. The hops are bright and juicy. The flavors I taste are peaches, pineapple, floral, hints of pine resins, oranges, lemons, grass, toasted crackers, and slightly bready.
The mouthfeel is creamy and astringent. The body is medium, has a medium carbonation, and lasting pleasant finish.
Oh My God, this beer is incredible. I was nervous when I read lactose; I was thinking oh no, here comes another shitty Milkshake IPA. I stand corrected; the oats do something special in this beer. I want several more of these. Fantastic beer!

No canning date. Can to wine glass.

L: Pours a full and hazy yellow with a fluffy white head that leaves a huge layer of lacing. Loads of very fine sediment floating around.

S: Candied citrus fruits with notes of mango and pineapple cream.

T: Candied grapefruit and orange with hints of ripe strawberries and white grapes. Less sweet than its smell. Minimally tart and quite bitter.

F: Full and creamy with a medium low carbonation.

O: Looks a bit strange with all the floaters, but smells, tastes and feels great. Another fantastic triple by OH that feels more like a double with its subtle sweetness and its smooth body. The flavor combination is rather a classic one, but it's perfectly balanced. Very very good.

Had on tap at OH FLX.
FAIAP… each category was better than 4.25, but not really 4.5… thus the 4.25’s but overall 4.5.
A bit “lite and brite” on body; had hoped for thick velvety Daydream like body…but overall another extremely well crafted OH brew.
Gorgeous non murky but mildly hazy lemon yellow. No real head or lacing. Hop profile ended up a bit citric for my tastes but still tasty.
Won’t go down as as a fav, but still an excellent brew.

A great NEIPA. Strong, juicy, creamy, boozy. Citrusy and a big bold beer. The hops assert themselves like a mother, and plenty of oat presence. Medium to big bodied, subtle alcohol presence for a high ABV, slightly dry finish. These guys know how to make an NEIPA.

Look - thick slightly orangish yellow with a big lastin white head, sticky lacing and nice rimming
Smell - lots of citrus but also some nice tropical fruits like mango peach papaya. Really like oat malt backbone as well
Taste - delicious citrus and tropical... Orange, mango and papaya with a nice oat malt backbone too
Feel - creamy and pretty thick with a very light carb
Overall - this is just an outstanding Triple and drinks more like a double. Really can't tell it's 10% ABV. The citrus tropical fruits just smell and taste incredible.

On tap at Other Half Philly

The first beer of my Philly trip! Out here for 2 days to see The Wonder Years at The Filmore because I wanted to see them in their hometown. I tried to go to Monk’s before this but the parking was fucked, so that’s an activity for tomorrow now. Let’s get into the beer

Pours a hazy yellow gold with 3 fingers of creamy off white head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves decent lacing

This is super soft in the nose despite the 10%. I’m picking up on aromas of papaya, orange juice, vanilla bean, raw oats, doughy malt, grassy hops, and mango

It’s soft in taste too, but even better for the restraint it shows given the abv. On the front end of the sip I’m tasting tangerine, grassy hops, mango, vanilla bean, orange juice, and bready malt. The swallow brings notes of resinous hops, tangerine, bready malt, lemon zest, and creamy peach

A medium full body pairs with gentle carbonation, resulting in a thick and slick beer. Finishes a bit too sticky but nothing detrimental

This is damn solid stuff. Their use of oats in beers never really disappoints

Super creamy. Very tasty. Reminds me of a sour cream based sponge cake with a hoppy hint.

Pours out as a hazy yellow/orange color with a nice fluffy head on top. The smell of the beer has a big hop aroma. The taste is creamy yet hoppy, a very nice balance going on here. The feel is very creamy yet soft, hard to believe it's a 10% beer. No burn from either of the lupulin or the abv which is very nice. Overall it's an outstanding beer from Other Half, glad it showed up in my area.

The hop content of this must be insane. Very sweet, but expected with all the lactose added. 16oz is a bit much at this level of intensity. Overall, it’s very smooth and comes together very well @ 10%abv.

Can. White head with lace. Hazy golden orange sunset.

Tropical, juicy, soft, creamy. Orange and melon, honeydew, peach yogurt, mango and papaya. Drinks more like a double. Some hops and bitterness in the finish.
