Other Half HDHC Dense IPA Review

HDHC has only been around for a minute at Other Half, but Dense is already the best "high density hop charged" (HDHC) IPA I've tasted so far. The acronym HDHC may not reach DDH status, or even catch on for that matter, but it still shows Other Half is always a few pounds of hops ahead of the industry with its hopping techniques (and marketing, too). While they were inventing new hop-related terms introducing new acronyms to beer labels, OH has also been busy opening two new locations — this year, Other Half Domino Park opened in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, as did its production brewery Washington, D.C. Adding that to the Finger Lakes location (formerly known as "Other Half Roc" as in Rochester, N.Y., but now Finger Lakes because that's trendier), and its home base in Brooklyn's Gowanus area, count it: Other Half is dominating the hop game from four different zip codes.
