Beer Review: Triple Mosaic Daydream – Other Half

Today’s beer review is on the second of two beers my wonderful girlfriend brought me back from Other Half while on her trip to New York. This was the one that I was really looking forward to trying from the moment she sent the menu to me at the taproom she was at. ‘Triple Mosaic Daydream’, as implied, is a triple IPA of the oat cream variety. For those who are not sure what an Oat Cream IPA is, they are a style of classic hazy beer with loads of added oats and lactose (or in this case milk sugar) which aims to get the body super soft and silky and give a sweetness to the beer as well. This one comes in at a bold 10.5% ABV.

The beer pours with a very deep haze and a lovely golden colour. A nice off-white head sits on what essentially looks like fruit juice in a glass. The aroma is pure tropical fruit medley with a mix of tangerine too. The body exactly what I was expecting going into this beer. Silky smooth, incredibly soft and with a lovely sweetness throughout. Lots of mango, apricot and pineapple flavours coming through as well as a light but balanced bitterness on the finish. Incredibly easy and dangerous drinking for a beer of this ABV.

A quick note on the can art: A nice and simple can wrap playing on the daydream name. I rather like that the clouds have a marbled pink reflective hue to them.

Wow! What a beer! I was very excited to try it and maybe it is my perception of the brewery and what they make hyping it up but I personally think it exceeded my expectations. One of the most drinkable and flavourful beers that I have ever had in my honest opinion. While a lot of people are understandably not a fan of lactose in IPAs, I personally think it works incredibly well here, particularly with the fruity flavours being provided by the two types of Mosaic. I’ve been daydreaming about trying this again since I finished the last drop of the can. Highly recommended if you can get your hands on it!

Score: 10/10
