This is a beer that I had on tap at one of my favorite craft beer bars in New York City, The Ginger Man. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “In 2014, Sam Richardson, Matt Monahan and Andrew Burman founded Other Half Brewing Company, a local brewery in New York City with a simple mission: to create beers that they wanted to drink from a company that they wanted to be a part of. Their vision was to build a passionate team that brewed great beers in the state of New York—done so with effort and thoughtfulness—to represent the ‘Other Half’ of the industry. Today, the Other Half team crafts beers in their Brooklyn brewery. They’re dedicated to collaborating with breweries both in New York as well as across the world in an effort to constantly move the industry forward while elevating the craft. The Other Half team believes that local breweries play an important role in their communities which is why they partner with these other likeminded brewers and brands in local nabes across the country and the world—but always return to their home state of New York and their Brooklyn taproom.”
Random: This beer is now retired.
The beer poured with a one finger, pure white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was completely hazy and bright yellow in color. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was very hoppy with lots of pine and tropical fruit. I picked up a lot of pineapple. The taste had a lot of hops with pine notes, pineapple and grapefruit. There was only a small amount of malt in the flavor. The body was on the thicker side with a lot of carbonation. It had a sticky and lengthy finish with tropical fruit. I enjoyed this beer a lot and anytime I get to have an Other Half beer is a treat.
