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.

Tapnat Stagshead. Pours copper with white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of grapefruit and resin. Quite hoppy mostly of grapefruit, some pine, resin, vanilla, grass, some herbs. Quite drying and pretty bitter. Not bad

NYC Trip Beer #19. Hit up Mugs Alehouse in Williamsburg to grab a few last beers and watch the Kentucky Derby. Pours Amber with a grassy scent. Far too bitter in taste for me. Very average mouthfeel. Meh. Draft - Mugs Alehouse - Brooklyn, NY

Slipstream (1979) - USA - MAR 23, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Draft at Mugs Ale House, where it was called Otherwise, not Other Side - I am guessing this is the same thing. Also had some at the Bronx Ale House. Apparently it won a recent competition (local IPAs?) at Mugs. There is lots of pine in this fresh and well-balanced brew. Full-flavored, and with some nice floral notes, but there is also some metallic bitterness in the finish. Good overall.

Pith (123) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2013
1/6 keg from Port Jeff Beverage. Pours cloudy dark gold with puffy cream head, lasts medium length. Hoppy all throughout with a seamless transition into tart grapefruit finish. Undertone of dry malt and wood hops. Thetart sweetness, usually not to my taste, is balanced well by the hops and makes for a drinkable enjoyable beer.

Draft at Alewife & Pony I believe. Pours an orange golden body with thin white head. Aroma is bitter hop, some floral notes as well. Mouthfeel is bitter, dry and astringent with notes of bitter hop, dry malt and grapefruit.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
A - Served a clear copper orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some good lace. S - Aroma is full of pine hops with some light citrus hops, caramel malts, and a bit of bready malt. T - Start off with lots of pine and grassy hop flavor with some bitterness. Through the middle some sweet caramel malt comes through with some stronger bitterness. The finish is a mix of caramel and bready malts with some grassy hop and some strong bitterness. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice big bitterness, almost a touch too much. Could have used a touch more malt to balance the big hop profile.

On tap. Pours with a clear orange hued body with a fully retentive white head. Good lace. Aromas are hoppy, tangerine, citrus, grassy, pineapple, mango and tropical fruit. Mildly dank. Flavors are citrusy, spicy, grassy, resin, orange and lightly dank. East Coast style with some high dextrin sweetness. Good balance, medium alcohol content. Clean finish with a medium bitterness and alcohol. Good and mildly warming. Decent.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Growler filled at Big Z. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of grapefruit with some notes of pine as well. The flavor is abrasively hopped with sharp bitterness overwashing a mild malt backbone. Lots of grapefruit pith. A bit too aggressive for me.
