Really good oat cream beer with tons of different hops in including Amarillo, citra, mosaic, etc. Good creaminess and very smooth mouthfeel. Worth a try.

L: Pours a murkey yellow color. No real head to speak of.
S: Tropical hops
T: Creamy with some fruit flavors but nothing fron the hops stands out.
F: Nice creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation
O: A creamy mouthfeel is the main attraction of this beer. It's just oats and lactose. No real strong hop presence. Disappointing. Maybe it's a bad can.

L - on the duller side of OH fare. Brown banana yellow with a fluffy, yet spaced-out head. Fake out with the lacing that looks like it'll stick around, but is gone after you turn your head.

S - mango juice accented by slight oat bitterness. Peach skin, unsweetened honey (?), and vague green tea. Much less oniony and resinous than the other bagz.

T - lemon marmalade with hints of lime-ade. Quite a bit of earthy, chalky hops that leave loads of lupulin on the tongue. Black pepper, toasted grapefruit peel, and herbal hops. Grassiness mixes with booze to create a bittersweet concoction. FInish is dry and hop particulate..d.

F - smooth, rich, and full. Best part about this beer. Hits hard and fast with thick creaminess, then peters out with slight wateriness, leaving only hops behind.

O - I think the oats kinda overpower this one. I remember the MB variants showcasing a bit more onion and jammy fruit flavors, whereas this one seems dry hop heavy with prominent oat bitterness. Far from bad... quite good actually, just a step down from usual OH ilk.

Served on tap in a 12 oz (355 ml) snifter at the Other Half brewery in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
A: Pours a cloudy orange color (like OJ), with a one finger head, that rapidly resolves to a rim, but surprisingly quite a bit of lacing.
S: Aromas of citrus (orange/grapefruit), pineapple, honeysuckle, and white pepper.
T: Palate largely follows the nose. Bitterness very much in the background.
M: Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Pillowy and juicy mouthfeel.
O: An enjoyable, highly drinkable DIPA. Not surprised as I have had success with the other "Mylar" beers I have tried.

im not sure if all mylar daydream and ddh mylar daydream are the same thing, i assume so, and thus this is the one that was on tap at trve this weekend, so cool of them to do a little showcase out here, all we ever get to do is read about how great other half is, so it was really fun to get to drink through a number of these! this one is oat based and a little sweet, maybe some lactose in the mix, its heavy but truly creamy feeling, and hopped to oblivion, as is trendy right now. the thing is with this one, and frankly a lot of these from other half, is that they are just objectively better than what it seems like everyone else is doing. a soft haze to this, not as heavy as a lot of them look, and with an almost nitro looking head on it from the tap. a familiar hop profile in terms of the varietals used and what they contribute, both in aroma and flavor, but it just seems more up front, bolder, fresher, starting sooner and staying later than so many others. i like how well the alcohol is hidden in this one, its more drinkable than the all green everything by a mile, but still has a lot of structure and body from the oats, its slick and rich feeling but isnt overly sweet, the hops just burst and pop in here, citra and galaxy and mosaic heavy for me, a great combination and well timed and dosed. it gets a little burny when it warms up, but i cant complain, this is next level stuff, one of the better examples of this sort of thing i have had. thankful for trve bringing them out to colorado!

16oz. can into Night Shift stemware.

Cloudy and muddy. Nose is lactose, citrus and pineapple juice. Surprisingly mellow. Beer opens mandarin orange, grapefruit, mango and sweet peach. Huge fruity bouquet with little to no hop bitterness for balance. Waxy on the finish with a citrus rind aftertaste. Very good. Body is medium to full with moderate to low carbonation. Slick but prickly on the palate and goes down dry with a sticky, dry, lingering aftertaste. Really nice.

Great flavor with a rich, juicy body. One of the better OH IIPAs.

This one pours a thick and turbid orange color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like intense candied pineapple, lactose sweetness, light peppery hops, and grapefruit.

This has such a soft pillowy flavor to it- thanks to the oat cream thing. There's a very light bitterness- it's mostly sweet hoppiness- mainly a big pineapple flavor here. It's intensely juicy and fresh tasting.

This is medium bodied, very soft and very rich, with a great level of drinkability. There's no hint of any apparent booziness, despit the DIPA-level ABV.

I've liked basically every OH beer that ends with the word "dream' and this is no exception.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Red Session. Really hazy pale yellow color. Aroma has sweet and juicy tropical melon notes. Taste is well balanced and really hoppy with milky yeast notes and light bitterness.

Cloudy light orange with two fingers of somewhat airy, yellow-tinted head. Spotty, soapy lacing.

Light green herbs -- maybe cilantro and others -- are layered with some fresh-cut grass and lime on top of a muted base of tropical fruit and orange juice.

A little more delicate tasting than expected, but the depth of flavors grew as it warmed. The herbs, grass and citrus again stand out the most. Whatever other fruit is behind those, as well as a little malty nuttiness. There's no bitterness to speak of, but it's in no way overly sweet either. An herbal pepperiness lingers with some orange in the aftertaste.

It has a nice, creamy-slick feel with some great carbonation cutting through. Really tasty stuff.

Pours an opaque medium yellow with a one inch white head that left spotty lacing. Smells of tropical fruits with a hint of citrus. Tastes of ripe pineapple, orange, orange rind and an earthy presence. Medium to heavy bodied, moderate carbonation, thick and juicy mouthfeel, mild bitterness.

More ridulous fun from Other Half... This is an imperial oat cream IPA featuring Amarillo, Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic; double dry hopped with Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic... You just can't go wrong with these Other Half NEIIPAs... Typical orange-pineapple juice opacity with a finger or two of white head... Tastes somewhat like a creamsicle - like orange sherbet with a vanilla cream center... Soft and smooth with some tang and zest... Additional fruit impressions of pineapple and peach round out this moderately sweet and only very mildly bitter beer... A real treat - as usual... 4/4/18 canning...

The pour yields a turbid golden straw- colored beer with a pillowy off-white head. This sits between the hazy look of Heady/Focal and the milkshake look seen in many of this style. I prefer this to the milkshake look, but YMMV.

The first thing I notice on the nose is weed - actually, dank weed. This is followed by tropical citrus notes, with passion fruit the most prominent, but I also note juicy mandarin oranges and ... some pineapple.

The taste is orange rinds (an ever so slight astringent note), passion fruit, and gushingly juicy pineapple. Simply delicious, IMHO. The feel is soft-ish, but has some texture and bite. Most excellent, IMHO. Other Half continues to offer world-class stuff.

Missed the first release of this back in November but got this right after New Year's at the brewery. Given how popular any of Other Half's beers with "Mylar" or "Daydream" in the name were, this was set up to be a winner and sure enough, that was the case. Dank, slick, sweet, and solid, this was nearly everything that one could ask for in a beer without any aspect overpowering the others or feeling contrived at the same time...

Lovely look to this as this poured like dank orange juice with plenty of fluffy, white head topping it off. Tons of soapy lacing complemented that as it was hint of the complexity to come. Tons of tangerine, creamsicle, tropical fruit pith, and peach in the nose with tropical fruit, cream, dank hops, and cantaloupe in the taste. So much going on here but somehow, this meshed well as a unifying citrus slickness tied everything in together. Aside from the Amarillo, the other hops all contributed to the outward appeal of this beer in every sensual aspect.

While there was plenty of alcohol in this, it wasn't strong enough to end my session after finishing this off. A slightly light amount of carbonation and balanced mouthfeel were enough to let the range of flavors shine through. Combining the best of past brews with these aspect, this was a winner that deserved to have four variations of the label. Dated 1/3 on the bottom of the can with NO SPIN CYCLE written below it, I'd easily pine for another 4-pack should this come out for a third time!

Poured from a growler into a teku glass.

Pours an opaque bright orange color with a finger of fluffy white head. The head leaves a ton of sticky cobweb lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of pineapple, orange, grapefruit, and a hint of peach. The back end has plenty of sweet cracker malts and earthy pine.

The taste starts off with pineapples, grapefruit, and fresh berries with some lemon zest and peaches not far behind. There's a lot of sweet notes of caramel and doughy bread before an earthy finish of pine and spices.

The feel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Exceptional creaminess, like a fruit smoothie. Alcohol is well hidden. Drinkable as hell.

Overall, an absolutely fantastic DIPA that is beautifully balanced and jam packed with hop flavors. Despite the high ABV, this one is exquisitely drinkable. One of the best beers I've had from Other Half.

On tap at Haymaker, it pours like all OH beers, cloudy yellow gold color with a foamy 1 finger off white head that faded slowly and left good spotty lacing. Typical good looks.

Smells and tastes like grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, oranges, biscuit, graham cracker, flowers, tropical fruit, clementine, light piney hops, star fruit, peppery spices, faint caramel, dry floral hops and sweet citrus fruit. Another smooth brew that's easier to drink than it should be, which I assume is thanks to the malts and oats in the foundation.

Many thanks to jrnyc for yet another OH sample.

Pours an opaque orange-yellow very similar to freshly squeeze orange juice, with a frothy white head that slowly recedes to a ring, leaving ample lacing behind.

Aroma is nice, but somewhat generically tropical.

Flavor follows along the aroma. I get some mango and a little bit of orange, but overall it tastes "tropical fruit"-like. I can't say I'm overly impressed, but it tastes quite nice. There's a slight sweetness that I wasn't expecting based on previous OH experiences.

Medium-to-full feel, not much in the way of carbonation zing. A little resin/slickness on the tongue, very smooth.

It's very tasty. I am enjoying drinking it. That said, I wonder if I'm a bit off today as the beer doesn't blow me away as it has past reviewers. I think it's quite well made, I just don't think there's anything about it that really sets it apart from other IIPAs/NEIPAs. Perhaps I am not one for the oat/lactose combination? Hard to say -- I hope to find it on tap somewhere or they re-release to try again someday.

I tip my cap to my man rowmark...thank you my beer brotha for tossing me this tick. There's been a big backlash against all the cream IPAs from the pureists, but I for one...LOVE the new craze (so long as the tried and true juice bombs continue to appear alongside these dessert IPAs. So naturally as a fan of the style and a fan of mylar...and a fan of all things double dry hopped, I dig this. I don't know if I could drink more than one in a drinking sesh...but I am enjoying this can.
