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 (6840) - 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.

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.

LilBeerDoctor (4235) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Growler from Big Z. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of hop oils, tons of grassy hops (pot hops), tropical fruits and citrus. Flavor of tons of rich hoppy goodness and some citrusy hops as well. Very West Coast IPA and a good one at that. 8/4/8/4/16 [4.0/5]

ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, 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.
