look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: massive mandarin orange, grapefruit, pineapple and mango. Loads of Fresh fruit.

A: Orange juice in appearance. Light to moderate carbonation leaving a light cream head that falls to smooth cap.

F: Citirus with more orange and grapefruit. Some tart fruits followed by mango and star fruit. Full of bready malts but well balanced with medium bitterness in the flavor.

M: creamy and full bodied but not overboard. Lingering medium bitterness with pineapple and melon fruits.

O: exceptional! Wonderful hazy IPA that exemplifies the style. aroma, flavor, and body all hit the spot and wouldn’t even know this was a 10% abv.

L - pours a dark, hazy murk. Brownish orange. Flat. Pretty good headroom here. Fluffy with decent retention.

S - thick and resinous. Peachy cream and dank onions. Juicy fruit with hints of overripe jackfruit. Sticky orange candy and lime juice.

T - thicc. Might even need another "c" for this one. Jet Puffed Funmallows (those fruity multi-colored marshmallows). Lactose-infused peach candy, like a smothering blanket of flavor. Ripe banana, cantaloupe, and sweet, mildly zesty lemon lime Gatorade with berry warmth. Finishes smooth as can be with a dash of buttery grape candy. A little dry, a little numbing.

F - thiqq. Like bisquick. The oats and boosted ABV add a massive milkshake creaminess. Feels like drowning in quicksand, but the sand is beer, and it's not quick. Well, it can be quick, but you'll end up passed out in the neighbor's lawn fertilizing their grass.

O - this one packs so much punch and hits so hard. Usually not a huge fan of their Citra variants, but this hits every spot, even spots I didn't know I had. It's heavy and thiccqqck af which makes it a sipper, but that's a good thing because of the aforementioned backyard adventures otherwise.

Tall can...5/30/18...

Classic OH NEIPA pour, Light khaki cap, leaves fairly minor bits of lacing.

Over ripe pineapple nose

Simply loaded with ripe pineapple goodness, also notes of mango, lime, kiwi and general tropical fruit deliciousness.

Thick and wonderful, 10% nowhere in sight...World class creation

Welcome to act four of New @CanConPhilly Beer Sunday (Week 709)! It is like a Shakespearean tragedy & things are now at a climax.

From the CAN: "Imperial India Pale Ale".

I am lukewarm about Other Half, having visited once & been told that their CANs are release day-only items. That is totally NOT in keeping with the basic tenets of The CANQuest (tm), but I try to keep an open mind. I opened this CAN with a nice Crack! & began a slow, gentle Glug to maintain clarity. Ooh, that turned out to be a massive waste of time! Fellas, when a "Place Admin" has been identified & you still CAN't be bothered to update the Style designation on this site, then I have little to no, or below no sympathy for yinz! This was nothing more than another hazebro NEIPA disguised as something more palatable. Color was a turbidly cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). I have waded through swamp water that was clearer than this mess. Nose was tropical fruity (mango, papaya, guava & passionfruit) with vanilla. Hmm. No inherent bitterness, though, which is a hallmark of the DIPA style. Too bad that t wasn't designated as a NEIPA when I reviewed it … Mouthfeel was creamy at last, but it was too late in this play to save the utterly flawed protagonist. I beat upon the steering wheel of my now-stranded Jeep, crying "A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse!" as Malcolm, MacDuff & Siward make their way up high Dunsinane Hill, but to no avail. Rosenkrantz, Guildenstern & Ophilia are all mort & I must take up with Laertes as my bestie for life (short though it may be), Horatio, looks on. The taste was solely of tropical fruits and vanilla extract and as my throat beCAN to CANstrict, I could only gasp, "O, apothecary, thy drugs are quick!" World-Class?!? Not if you are reviewing to style & not to taste, or worse, to hype! This was to a DIPA what I am to Mr. Universe. The tragedy, the tragedy. The horror, the horror! Finish was an odd mélange of plays, characters, flavors, appearances & other such nuances. It was NOT, however, in keeping with the DIPA style. There was little bitterness, an emphasis on tropical fruit flavors, too much particulate & it led to a tragic outcome. 8=(

Can. White heads hazy dull gold. This is straight up pineapple orange juice. Tropical melon and mango. Very soft. Incredible drinkability. Does not taste anywhere near 10.5%. Wow.

16 ounce can dated 9/12/18. Poured into Lexan tulip.
Pours a milky, hazy orange juice. Yellow tinted, sticky white head Immediately upon cracking open the can I was met with all the Citra. Oj, grapefruit, mango, overripe pineapple.
Oranges, lemon peel, then mango and papaya. Finishes sweet, like honey and biscuits. Big chewy mouthfeel for a triple IPA. Overall, not your typical malty double (or triple). Hop bitterness levels out some of the sweetness.

This is really good. One of the best TIPAs I've ever had. Got some cans just a couple days old dated 9/10/19 from CBC. Got even better after a few weeks.
