This Friday, Other Half brewing had an exclusive release of their Imperial IPA, Green Diamonds, in 16 FL oz cans. Not too long ago they released Superfun! (a session pale ale with Simcoe, Galaxy and El Dorado hops) also canned, in tallboys. With Green Diamonds, Matt and Sam (the brewers and owners) decided to only release it at the brewery, since it was a rather small batch.
Green Diamonds is a very popular beer with lots of delicious Australian Galaxy hops, and the hype around it has been big here in NYC and close by. I’ve had this beer twice on draft before and remember it as a great Imperial IPA with lots of hop aroma; flowers and fruits. So of course I wanted to get hold of some of those tallboys!
They used the services of Iron Heart Canning, a company with a mobile canning unit, both for Superfun! and Green Diamonds. Which beer will be next in line for canning? My four-pack was $16 and I’m glad I went early, because I just got the news that they were sold out yesterday afternoon. Sold out in one and a half days… Damn!
A review of the beer is coming soon.
