COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the brewer: Brewing a balanced beer is always a top priority when it comes time for recipe formulation at Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. While Other Side IPA is hop forward as it should be, with nearly 3 pounds of hops per barrel - it also achieves balance. A blend of North American pale, light munich, light crystal and Carapils malts provide a light, malty backbone as foundation for multiple additions of Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Warrior hops. Hoppy, yet balanced - the sixth brew of our Project Hoppiness series is a nod to the IPAs we love from the other side of the country. Project Hoppiness is GHBC’s project to explore the world of humulus lupulus, the common hop. An ever changing variety of hop forward ales will excite your taste buds with new experiences, none quite like the last. Bringing forth happiness through hoppiness.

Light amber and copper coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of nice fresh grassy and herbal hops with hints of light pine. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal hops with a nice citrus finish showing a touch of sweetness, some subdued resinous notes and finishing with a good malt backbone that balances this out nicely. Aftertaste shows some malt and a faint bit of sugars, but this is all about the grassy and very herbal hops - very nice. Overall, a well-balanced IPA from the east coast that shows well and hits the highs of an IPA while being balanced by a nice malt body. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Beer Culture in New York (Midtown), New York on 27-November-2015 for US$3,00 sampled at home in Washington on 12-March-2016.

Gonzin (142) - ARGENTINA - SEP 17, 2015
Probada tirada en Salvation Taco, Midtown Manhattan, New York. Tono anaranjado tirando a claro. Espuma media. Sabor amargo clásico en una IPA en donde predomina el pomelo. Cuerpo medio. Buena cerveza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz - Nice pour and lace, nose was spot on with malt and hops. Metallic funk in the middle killed it for me.

dark orange pour, 1 finger creamy head that sticks around. looks great! smells really good. piney with some orange and grapefruit. an intense bitterness with some pine. This is a pine bomb I guess. the mouthfeel is good with a pellegrino finish.
