Notes: Our 4th Anniversary Quadruple Dry-Hopped Imperial India Pale Ale was brewed with Pilsner malt, oats and wheat. We hopped it aggressively with Citra, Galaxy, Enigma, El Dorado, Mosaic and Citra Lupulin powder. The final two dry hop additions are just Galaxy and Citra Lupulin and Mosaic. Soft and juicy.

Tall can - 2/2/18

Great looking NE IPA, over hazed, on the lighter side of yellow squash soup, leaves great looking and plentiful fine bits of lacing.

Fruity juicy sniff, with bananas, ripe pineapple.

Over the top, juicy, flavorful, complex and simply delicious, 10% alcohol masterfully hidden...notes of ripe pineapple, mango, soft banana....world class....go get some....

4 years? Where has the time gone?!?!??? Much of it was spent drinking big dank, juicy monsters and it was only appropriate that quite possibly the best of the bunch was this winner brewed for Other Half's 4th anniversary. Soft as they come, I could finish this off in one long sip relatively easily. Yes, that's how good this was!

As usual, this had a fabulous pour as the beer was orange juice, minus the pulp and with a perfect head topping it off. That lasted for quite a while as the lacing left behind coated the back of my Teku glass quite extensively. Loads of orange juice, soft hops, melon, blueberry, and an underlying dankness that came out as this warmed up. All of those were in the taste along with caramelized peach, oats, grapefruit, wheat, vegetables, and a soft creaminess that tied everything in together. A light amount of carbonation and slickness to the taste and aftertaste kept the flavors crisp, as complex as they were together!

10%? More like 1% as I could drink this all day and night if I had to. I don't know they jam so many hops into a beer and have it come out as seamless as this but like so many of their other offerings, I just ended up drinking this in amazement. Dated 2/2 on the bottom of the game with GANSTA QUATRE underneath it, this was a lighthearted brew with a wonderful array of notes that paid a slight homage to the cat in front that serves as their unofficial mascot. Cheers to 4 years, all the good times inside (and in front of) their space, and to 4 more years of pushing the boundaries every week!

Unbelievable thanks goes out to Robbie for camping out overnight and then handing off some goandpickitupformebro cans. You, sir are a scholar and a gentleman!

As for the beer, very good but hot dog if this isn't an ipa on steroids. The abv is present but how could it not be at 10%. That said, my jaw is on the floor w the drinkability here. Flavor is what you would expect from other half...they pulled it off...attractive and delectable hops in quadruple overload. Juicy, but boozy...congrats other half. 4 yrs and leading the pack as you have been since open. Happy to have been around for the ride. What a great time to be a beer drinker and an even better time to be other half. Not thier best offering but good luck to anyone trying to pull off a beer of this magnitude with this quality. Winner
