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.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Location: Growler from Superstar Beverage - Huntington, 9/11/14

Aroma: The nose is resin hops dominant, with plenty of tropical fruit, quite hoppy and very clean
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a sheeting white head and nice lacework
Flavor: The flavor is lightly sweet/fruity, but leans much more toward the hop bitter side
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth feel, soft carbonation, and a long, dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was an excellent IPA. It is quite dry and has a really enjoyable flavor. I am quite impressed by this one. It could be quite dangerous at over 7%. This is a very west cost style beer from a very east coast brewery.

Draft at top hops New York. Pours yellow with a half inch of white foam. Leaves a fair amount of lacing. Not a ton on the hops. Lovely grapefruit notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. Nice!

From tap. Clean basketball color in glass. Floral nose of hops, orange bitters and buffalo grass. Rate is mostly hops, some wheat, and a modicum of malts. Astringent.

ladnewton (1413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2013
On tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn NY on 3rd July 2013. Almost clear amber with white ring and film top/part lacing. Rich and intense hoppiness. Intensely bitter grassy hop in-mouth. Solidly hoppy bitter finish - very bitter in rear of mouth and tangy in front. Light mouthfeel and medium body.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Tap at Good Beer NYC. Hazy golden amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is sweet and hoppy. Lots of citrus and some tropical fruit. Assertively bittered with a nice fresh finish. Slight marmalade notes. Tasty.

patxa (189) - MEXICO - SEP 29, 2013
Local NY beer on tap at The Ginger Man. Accesible soft bitterness IPA, with hints of wheat bread and sweet malts. Aroma was good but went away really quick, thin white lace, good carbonation. Refreshing but not as astringent as it could be.

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Half growler at GrandCru beer and cheese. A solid showing for another NY brewery that I had not heard of. Piney nose and body. Stacatto hop bite then warming tones of hop infused grassiness. That little bottle went fast. Lots of nice lacing left behind.

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub - Nice hoppy nose, piney and citrus. Sweet, bready malts with some caramel. Finishes dry and with a bit too much astringency. But very fresh and resinous hops.
