Other Half Brewing "Green Diamonds Imperial IPA"
On-tap at the tasting room, 23 August 2014

This is an interesting beer for me in that I didn't really find it "Imperial", it just came across as a hopped-up kind of west coast IPA. I was looking for more malt, I was looking for more strength, I expected more body... I didn't find it. In fact, I didn't even find the nose to be really bright. It was good overall, and I appreciated the pungent and citrusy hops, but it didn't slap me in the face. So is that good, or is that bad? I don't know. I think the "Imperial" designation kind of skews things. What I found was a very well-rounded, and well-balanced, lightly super-charged IPA. I'm sure it's strong, there's no doubt about that, but it didn't come off like that - this could be one dangerous beer!!! So beyond the hidden strength, what I can say is that I liked the different layers of flavor that I found. It was resinous at one point, and then citrusy at the next, and then more common fruitiness followed. The malt would come in, and then go out like the tide. And it was bitter, but it wasn't overly bitter. It didn't build at the back of my throat as some do. There was a touch of underlying (maybe outlying is a better word) fermentation character but it never really stepped in.

Ahhh, I think I just got the name... this is made with Galaxy hops which are hard to come by so maybe those are the "green diamonds".
