Other Half All Riwaka Everything Review

As far as our beer drinking is concerned, the most “unprecedented” part of 2020 was how much Other Half beers we drank. Also unexpected were the amount of Riwaka-hopped IPAs we tasted throughout the year. The unusual hop was introduced to us beer geeks over a decade ago by Hill Farmstead, and while it remains a relative rarity, has been popping up (hopping up?) around the U.S. this year. Other Half’s Riwaka ode packs layers of this hop oddity into its alluring aroma, at once dank and herbal and almost gasoline-like. The flavor has pungent herbs and tropical fruit, with a smooth, almost viscous texture. Shocking, yet delicious.
