Don't want to be a hater, but I somewhat recently had very confusing experiences with some of the most respected haze-makers from the East Coast: Other Half, Equilibrium, Aslin, Grimm... I remember having Other Half years ago and being utterly blown away by it, even comparing it to Monkish and other local breweries making good haze here in CA. The closest the West Coast could get to OH was Alvarado Street in its oil-driven, dank profile, and they are still killing it consistently. I recently had about ten of OHs beers, and they were all very, very disappointing, but above all they were unrecognizable from the stuff I had years ago. To be clear, I had: Small Citra Everything, True Green, Small IAECED in Space, Dream in Green, Ain't Nothing Nice, and 1000 Pounder, and four more growlers filled by HPB. These were all a lot sweeter, and had none of that dank, oily brightness I recall. Anything I've had from ASB, Green Cheek, or Monkish lately nukes these out of the water, as well as Cellarmaker and SARA IPAs. They were also fresh. Similar results with Aslin and Equilibrium. Very sweet, not nearly as bright or aromatic. Grimm fared slightly better. I haven't had Tree House or Trillium, so I couldn't say what they are up to. So my question is: what is going on? Did I just get unlucky or have these guys just fallen to chasing the market tendency towards tropical sweetness and low bitterness vs dankness and greenness?
