Grabbed can at Perfect about 8 months ago. Lost/ Found in beer fridge today.
Unsure fresh, but this beer at 8 months is a monster across the board.
Gorgeous slightly orange hinted golden yellow; hazy with a creamy thick white head… which breaks down into layers of dense foam that cascade in multiple halos within glass.
Nose is citric orange; grass; melon, double bubble . Flavor mirrors with more noticeable apricot tartness and some banana like richness coming through as well.
Body is velvety smooth only lightly carbonated. Rich but not heavy or sluggish. Not for everyone but spot on in my wheel house. Seems almost hand pulled from cask. Absolutely no double digit ABV noticeable at all. Mastercrafting here.
Overall I just had to bump it up a bit the sum is even better than the amazing parts. Big bow here.

Poured a golden-orange body with two-finger head that slowly died and left a lace ring down the glass. Aroma struck me as a mix of mild grapefruit and citric hops along with smidge of tropical fruits and floral notes. Fuller-bodied, slightly sticky, a touch of booze and maltiness in the beer but mostly a tropical fruit sweetness that balances with a floral hoppiness and then a touch of citric zip on the finish. Great balance between different aspects and well-hidden booze make this an enjoyable beer.

So first question: Is this the same as the HDHC Triple Citra Daydream Collab with EQ? Second question. Have you ever walked into a brewery right after the brewers throw hops into the boil? Well that's exactly what this beer smells like once it's poured. Light hazy gold. Thick white head. Crazy, ridiculous long lasting head and thick lacing. Really something else for a beer of this ABV. Super green hops and sweaty gym clothes followed by bubble gum, berries, mango..... Taste is more bubble gum, grapefruit, green, mango. Feel is medium carbonation. Fluffy body. Overall, a hop lover's delight.

This is Other Half at their best with their patented oat and lactose backed juicy neipas. Murky opaque faded orange with two fingers of off-white foam and decent lacing. Aromas of melon, orange, mango, peach, lime, grapefruit, and pineapple with dank hops. Taste builds on the nose by taking all of those fruits plus star fruit, and making them lush with juiciness before ending the sip with dry yet dank and piney hops. Feel is juicy, thick, lush, soft, and full. One of their best in a long time

From the deep Orange hazy color to the phenomenal nose, this beer has everything going for it. Too bad I paid $15 per can at a restaurant - or else I might have ordered another!!

OK. Initially I thought the New Year’s Eve tasting was less than thrilling. Yeah, it was complex, interesting, potent. But hey it was New Year’s Eve yeah? So I figured I’d buy another can and drink later when my mindset might be more objective.

Fast forward, some of my beers got pushed to the back of the fridge and this was one of them. When I rediscovered the 2nd can this week, I immediately kicked myself for losing track of the inventory and dreadfully assumed this drink was going to be a very disappointing experience. Obviously MY BAD for waiting five months before reviewing this.

HOWEVER thIs 2nd can (5 months old this week) is still a wonderful, repeat WONDERFUL beautiful beer that has aged gorgeously over time. IMHO, the genius of a great brewing of IPAs is Calibrating the longevity of maintaining 1st day freshness or ensuring the aging tracks like the clocking of the finest of fine wines.

Fortunately, the folks at Other Half have figured this all out and this latest batch of Triple Citra Daydream at 5 months is nothing less than a masterpiece.

With this in mind, I plan to give New York a call to congratulate them and seek to understand of their mastery of the fountain of youth.
