COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden color. Citrus and piney hop aromas. Assertive malt backbone supporting the overwhelming bitterness. Dry hopped in the fermenter with four types of hops giving an explosive hop aroma. Previously known as 21A-IPA.

Can... Poured amberish/orange with a big, frothy white head. Big floral punch of hops on the nose with a crisp grain character. Really well balanced and with a soft palate that didnít assault the taste buds -- not that I have problem with beers like that ; ) -- Refreshing hops and a malty sweet, bready finish. Very enjoyable.

Can. Thanks Greg. Pours a goldish orange with aromas that are thick with caramel and metal with a little spruce. Flavor is malt heavy with a weak and unconvincing hops presence. Meh.

Can from Craft. Pours hazy orange with 2-finger fluffy white head and great lacing. Nose is hugr citrus, hops, tangerine, pineapple, black pepper. Tastes crisp, citric, hoppy, with heavy black pepper, trop fruit, and a very well balancerd and delicious taste and palate that leaves you wanting to chug the one you have and crack another. Good thing i bought a case!

Location: Had a pint of this on tap at the Ginger Man in NYC, 6/27/09

Aroma: Citrusy hops aroma, a touch of caramel
Appearance: Clearish orange-gold color, small white head
Flavor: Light but good flavor, mostly just light and citrusy hops, some sweet malts in the backing as well for balance
Palate: A nice, but light palate, call it light-medium bodied, and crisp
Overall Impression: Didnít realize this was normally a canned beer, Iíve not really seen a lot of beers from these guys around my area in stores. I thought it was pretty tasty on draft though, a nice IPA, my criticism would be that it is a touch toned town, but everything else was pretty good.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2009 Hearty malt backbone - a little cracker grain upfront - with full caramel character and subtle toffee notes. Full creamy mouthfeel. Impressive hop components with strong citrus accented by light pine and a grassy note. A little watery on the finish. Upgraded aroma from 7 to 9 - near perfection IPA nose. Update 7/15/09 - Glad I picked up the sixer of this; More lemon citrus prominent up front than previously detected.

As far as canned beer goes this is a pretty good one. I believe in saving the planet and all that, but beer or ale just doesnít belong in a can, sorry. That being said this IPA is appropriate for situations where bottles are a problem such as camping, backpacking etc. Overall not a bad IPA. Iíd like to taste it on tap or from a bottle.

On Tap. Pours a golden orange color with a white head, dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is citrus hops, not too overpowering - mellow, a nice balance between hops and malts. A much better entry than the other beer Iíve had from 21st Amendment (Hell or High Watermelon Wheat).

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Labeled as 7.0% ABV. Yellow orange with a medium white head. Sweet aroma, citrus hops mingling with but overpowered by the malt. Crisp on the palate, with a strong, lingering bitter flavor. Not too sweet at all, and bitter. Well balanced and very drinkable.

Can. Golden yellow orange pour with substantial head. This flavor was great with no fiery bite. Great ipa even stout lovers can enjoy.
