    I'm only slightly interested in it because I really enjoyed the Pineapple Coconut stout they did with Burial a while back.

    Also what are the chances of a City Slickers 2 rebrew after Green City? I feel like that's when it came out last time.

    OG City Slickers came out in April, I remember drinking some in the park under the cherry blossoms.

    Just double checked and City Slickers 2 came out July 2nd last year so seems about right as far as timing goes.

    When do they send out info on the VIP beers for the Green City ticket?

    RIP Recycling Center, wonder what’s going on there. More Citra than All Citra whatever is good but I don’t think it’s discernibly different

    gonna try it out tonight, I only had the 1st release of the More Citra and i felt like it was a bit hot/green and never got to try it again after. I did really love the Experimental ACE they dropped week of Pastrytown. Going to get my pour of Forever Simcoe first though!

    Yea this batch of Forever Simcoe is fantastic, its very tropical fruit forward which I like but if I were to nitpick its missing a little bit of that pine that's present in the best batches imo.

    Ahh, I do like the little bit of pine there, I remember the first DDH Forever Simcoe batch and it was just perfect to me at that time. looking forward to a pour tonight

    One of their instagram posts said they would be sending an email out this week. I don’t know anyone that got it yet.

    Forever Simcoe is on point. More Citra was good, but the experimental ACE was better IMO.

    In honor of being experimental I poured some Forever Simcoe into the end of my more Citra and named it’d Forever More Simtra. Would try again lol

    I would do mix 4 packs with you. Sometimes I prefer only two of each. Occasionally I can get some friends in town to split but often they want even more than a four pack of everything.

    Weird. Did they split those cans? Because More Citra is the stuff of legends and I almost always avoid triples. They got every bit of flavor out of that 10.5%

    Was taken aback to see that AGE was sold out by the time I got there. Must've been a standard sized batch split 3 ways (Brooklyn, Rochester, Mobile) and probably not equally. Missed out on that and Double Citra but I'm alright with that.

    First time trying Vapor Ringz and this is quite the consolation prize. Getting a nice fruit punch note that I've gotten off of some of my favorite OH IPAs.

    Just wait until some fire beer is brewed in Rochester and Brooklyn gets the "extra"...that'll take us all aback, waaaaaaay back.

    Ugh. I was hoping for an easy drop-in to pick up some Mylar and forever ever. Guess that won’t happen. How long will it take to clear the DFPF line and will there be any Mylar left?
     
  24. Tallerboy

    Tallerboy Initiate (96) Jun 17, 2017 New York

    They're selling it out of the taproom so OH doesn't think there will be a line... I gonna guess you'll get your mylar bags bc they just had batch two weeks ago.

    I think this More Citra is the best OH beer I've had this year but good Lord I pity those who bought VIP "all-in" tickets. Best of luck with those beers they're packaging for you.

    Glad I didn't go for VIP.... just need a 4oz at Green City. Thanks.

    I'm torn if I will be going to this Thursday's drop (I forget is there a green city non-VIP IPA?) or wait for all the collabs to hit in a few weeks right before July 4th...

    Kinda regretting springing for the VIP. All 10+ abv. 80% of the beer is probably gonna end up sitting in my fridge until they’re no longer good.

    A few years ago I talked with someone who brewed for Boulevard and they told me that they had agreed to not follow trend and make IIPA pint cans because it was "irresponsible." But I bet they just can't. #boulevardhatesalcoholics

    That’s like the equivalent of 8-10 bottles of wine. Insane.

    Help a brother out, I don't want to spend the afternoon drinking nothing but Heady Topper. Not that that's a bad thing, but what brews should I NOT MISS at this year's Green City? Who's bringing the buzz beers??

    God damn now I'm curious to revisit Heady Topper. It's been a good 3 years since I last had a can and I'm curious to see how it stacks up in today's frightening and confusing beer scene.

    I had it just a few months ago when it made it's way to NYC. Didn't live up to my memory and my tastes have obviously changed -- I couldn't even finish the can. Hard pass for me at the festival.

    I had a Heady last month, drank the whole can... It's still a solid beer, but I liked the last two WCIPA OH put out, it's nice to take a break from the straight juice.

    The cans I've had that hit NYC bars via distribution have all been almost totally different than the fresh cans I've got from VT itself. Even the appearance of the cans here is more of a medium-haze, but the cans I've had up there all poured totally opaque.
