COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name is a tribute to the hop shortage a few years ago. A imperial IPA aged on oak using Columbus, Centennial and cascades as the bittering hops and dry hopping with Simcoe, Ahtanum, Amarillo, and Cascades.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2011
(Can, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Hoppy, fruity nose with notes of grapefruit, pine needles, resin and lots of fresh, citric hops. Hoppy, fruity, malty taste with citrus, caramel, dried apricots, grapefruit, pine needles and a smooth, hoppy finish with caramel, vanilla, citric hops and hints of oak wood. Almost full body, with some sweetness. Impressive hop character, with the oak wood firmly in the background. Lovely beer.

deyholla (8349) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Can thanks to Baker. Pour a clear deep amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma is full of sweet grains with a bit of pine hop and a good amount of oak that keeps the pine mellow. Flavor starts with sweet grains but transitions to oak, pine and a bit of resin in the finish. Barrel aging took away too much of the hops IMO, but still solid.

Decent, overall I don’t tend to live oak aged IPAs...in this case it was decent enough but a little old (guessing) and when you combine that with the oak aging the hop profile just wasn’t that strong. It was pretty smooth and drinkable, just not overly memorable. If I’m going to do a 10% beer I want it to be memorable.

Leighton (14430) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2011
Can at a tasting. Pours clear gold with a delicate, white head. Fresh pine aroma, some sugar. Very sweet flavor, some honey and light caramel, ripe citrus. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Sticky finish, oil, resinous, more nice pine, faint dirt. Great beer.

jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Can.  Pours orange with thick, frothy white head.  Aroma of citrus hops.  Taste of piney resin with light malt balance.  Creamy mouthfeel.  A good bit of the oak comes through in the finish.  The best of their beers I have had.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Can from State Line (I think). Nice pour, moderately hazy, pitched somewhere between yellow and pale orange. Head is fluffy, with a goodly amount of stick-ickies. I’m usually quite leery of the marriage of oaking and hops, since it often undercuts just the things I wanted out of a DIPA. But this one worked splendidly, with majestically understated wood imparting just a bit of a white wine quality to a heavily citric and floral brew. Good stuff indeed.

12oz can poured into a tulip glass. Pours dark gold with a white head. Aromas are grapefruit and sticky pine. Taste is earthy and well balanced, there is definite hop bitterness, but not overpowering. Notes of oak, grapefruit, malts, some pine. Overall, a very nice DIPA

omhper (21423) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2011
Canned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear deep golden, faint head. Rich lychee aroma. Sweet and marmelady with near full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Hugely hoppy with tangerine, lychee and seville orange. Really bitter finish. Hugely citric, but the oak is not noticed - which is probably good as oak and citric hops is a match made in hell.

williamherbert (1395) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2011
The aroma is dual woody and citrus (tangerine) hops. The oak comes through strongly in the second sniff. The appearance is clear, golden yellow. Slow, tiny bubbles. Big fluffy head. The flavor: hops abound, oak and pine sap. The oak is strong, but balanced by the sweetish malt. The malts are sugary but with a spicy rye component. Feels creamy, bubbly and thick. This is a harsh, hoppy, bitter beer. Heavy on hops but with a spicy finish. Very woody.

21ST AMENDMENT IS ONE OF THE LEADING CANNED BEER BREWERS IN THE COUNTRY THEIR PRODUCTS PRESENTATION AND CAN ARTWORK ARE ALWAYS EXCELENT, HOWEVER THAT CAN ONLY GO SO FAR THE BOTTOM LINE IS THE BEER HAS TO BE GOOD.THIS ONE IS A LIGHT CRISP RESINY HOPS AROMA, LIGHT FOR AN IMPERIAL IPA THAT IS. POURS SLIGHTLY ORANGE TINTED YELLOW WITH THIN WHITE HEAD, PRETTY BITTER HOPS NOT MUCH SWEETNESS LACKS THE SWWET FRUITY COMPLEXITY OF A GOOD IMPERIAL IPA. WHEN CRITIQUED AS AN UNCATEGORIZED BEER ALONE THIS IS VERY GOOD AND AN EXCELENT VALUE FOR THE PRICE, BUT WHEN COMPARED TO OTHER IMPERIAL IPAS ITS IS SLIGHTLY BELOW AVERAGE AT BEST. ONE OF 21ST WEAKER BREWS.
