Notes: Hand selected Mosaic and Motukea give this a fruity, light citrus balanced with a little pine from a small addition of classic Chinook hops.

Dense pulpy orange juice haze with ringed lacing very little head. Aromas of sweet root vegetable, grass, peaches and citrusy pine. Those notes are all evident on the palate. It’s like you took all those notes, macerated them and fermented it. Some tropics are apparent as well with overripe mango and guava. Lingering alcohol on the aftertaste.

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

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Broken Bow nonic pint glass; canned 04/17/19, no code.
A: Pours a hazy, golden color with orange highlight, a less than one finger, white head, rim plus retention, but decent, if spotty, lacing.
S: Aromas of grapefruit, caramel, grains, pine, and funk.
T: Sweet to semisweet. Flavors a melange of the nose. Solid bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with medium effervescence. Creamy and juicy.
O: A solid and delicious AIPA. Really in large part about the mouthfeel, though.

This beer pours a super hazy yellow orange color with a two finger, creamy, frothy bright white head. Retention is excellent and there are sheets of lacing left all over the glass.

The smell is dank mango, citrus pith, tangerine and pineapple.

Taste is the same, but the flavors come off muddled. There is some piney bitterness, green herbs and a touch of alcohol that combine with the fruity flavors from the smell and kind of muck it up. The mango almost tastes spoiled, really very weird.

Feel is medium, smooth and slightly sticky.

Overall this beer is so so. I don't want to say it's off, because it isn't bad, but it is far below the Other Half standard. I've had the regular version of this beer quite a few times and quite enjoyed it. This is my first time with the DDH version and it is a major step down. Will report back and edit after finishing the 4pk if it is warranted.

Picked this up right before I left to go away in November, finally getting around to it during this quiet week. Loved the original Green Power and this was just as good - smooth, tasty, and addicting from start to finish. This was one dank bomb of a beer that felt a lot less potent than 8.50% and really emerged once it fully warmed up!

Really nice pour to this as the beer poured a murky apricot with a near-perfect head. Tons of lacing was left on the side of my Teku glass in the form of rings that slid down to the next layer; with the end result being that much of the inside was covered in suds. Lots of dank, earthy hops, melon, tropical fruit rind, and onion in the nose with pineapple and passion fruit in the taste. Quite a bit going on here but somehow, it all meshed together as the bite from the onion ended up taking hold as this warmed up and the liquid went down. A basic malt and lively carbonation kept this from being too dank or biting and the wet residue left on my palate was nearly as pleasing as the beer itself.

Canned on 10/26 with nothing written above or below it, this held up well for being two months old. With just the right amount of booze in it, this once again proved that anything with "Green" in the title from Other Half was worth seeking out. Who needs weed when you can get your hands on something this good?

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Opaque apricot yellow-orange with a large white foam settling to a lumpy froth raised at the edges leaving minor lines of lace

Smell is nicely potent of dank and tropical notes, kiwi, yellow apple, passionfruit and pineapple with hints of white wine vinegar and ruggy biscuit in background

Taste is tart and tangy passionfruit, orange and pineapple with slight oniony dankness, hints of pine and biscuit with a nice medium body, a refreshingly crisp, soft froth, finishing tinglingly semi-wet.

Than you david soul. Missed this the first time around so supper pumped to try it. Definitely lived up to my expectations. Nose is dense w hops but earthy to. Taste is the same. Super tasty. Really perfectly balanced brew. Great hop bouquet of flavors, balanced by a ballsy malt backbone... just a perfect drinker.
