Super inviting aromas: big floral notes, grapefruit, tangerine, pine, fresh hop and caramel. The taste follows the nose pretty closely. Grapefruit, tangerine, pine, fresh hops, resin, and just a dash of lemon. Finish was a really nice rush of bready flavors with some spice mixed in. Not bad at all.

Can pours orange with golden hints with a persistent head. This is a well-balanced IPA: not too malty; not too hoppy. Overall, a classic IPA.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after a long stretch of work in the early spring. Happy that this brewery finally made it to Chicago! Appearance is a clearish darkened gold with a frothy and full white head that nicely laces to the glass. Aroma is citrusy and hoppy, with a touch of pine, smells great. Taste goes down very well, one of the better IPAís Iíve had of late, full bodied and flavorful, Iíve had more bitter beers and feel this one balances out quite well. Very enjoyable.

Amber with white head and gorgeous lacing. Aroma at once sweet and biscuity . Flavor starts sweet citrus, then goes bitter for a while. Lacks balance, but not a bad beer.

Hoop dat dit de goede is, op dr kaart stond alleen "21st amendment ipa" Niet zoín sterke geur. Dun schuim, goede kleur. Smaakt als een lekkere IPA. Bitter, maar niet te, en wel fris.

Golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, apricot, tropical fruits, malts. Malty flavour, light bitter hops, straw and malts. Quite bitter finish. Nice brew, feels a bit old, but keeping up well. Rating 3456.

On draft. Amber pour. Waaaaay too sweet at the start of the pint, served to cold. It still is way to sweet by the end but it is at least a nice drinkable east coast style ipa with tons of malt but also some hops.

Can. Enjoy by 6/12/15. These usually have a 5 month convention. So Iím going with almost 3 months old. Which is probably too old for an IPA. Funny that this beer has only been sold in illinois for 3 days and itís too damn old. Maybe it would be better fresher, but the brewer stamps 5 months on the can so Iíll play dumb and assume itís still in itís prime. In short. Itís garbage. In long. Stale hops that taste like dandelions. A strong overly sweet pale malt. Crap, donít buy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can served in a tulip. The beer pours a pretty clear golden orange with an inch of white head and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is bright citrus, pine resin, sweet caramel malts, and a bit of spice in the back. Taste is citrus and tropical fruits up front. It than turns into total dank pine with some caramel malt flavors showing up near the end. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and although the beer starts off pretty juicy, it finishes rather dry. At 7% abv there is no alcohol that I can detect. This is a really nice IPA and reminds me of the west coast style.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The surprising thing about this beer is the light finish. The aroma is really well balanced and pleasant. You know how some IPAs have a strong aroma but it doesnít really work or itís just over powering blah? Well, this is where this beer excels. The taste kind of tapers off the high hopes the aroma lends, but itís still a solid citrusy, resiny experience. The finish is somewhat lighter and less bitter than you might think. Itís sort of hidden under the malt and the hop flavors. Itís good but just not as punchy as you might expect. Overall, itís a really good beer--great with Thai or Mexican food.
