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

Very juicy hop aroma, grapefruit, citrus rind, oak, and a toffee backbone. Drinks quite hoppy bitter. Grapefruit, juicy hop flavors and big bitterness and complex. But all with a smooth toasty toffee backbone that balances but still lets the hops shine through. A good DIPA, if a little too "textbook"

Beer of the night. A bold hoppy piney, honey aroma. A nice floral, grapefruit taste. With a caramel malt and pine finish. A decent blend. I liked it.

At a tasting, thanks Davidís Friend, pours yellow to orange slightly hazy with a small to medium head, powerful aroma of grapefruit, orange, malt and apricot, flavor of malt, bread, honey, guava, mint and grapefruit, medium bodied, pretty nice

This beer is an experience unto itself. One of the best IPAs Iíve had - 10% alcohol is so well masked as to be dangerous. Delicious.

Pours a very light amber color with a huge fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Flavor is a bitter almost pineapply butterscotch. Very warming alcohol. Aroma is a very resiny hop with some notes of bourbon and vanilla. Very smooth palate.

I love this one. Great aroma and taste of hops and wood. Maybe a little bit of vanilla from the oak. One of the best Iíve had from 21st amendment.

Poured a clear, golden from a 12-oz. can into a Duvel tulip. Smallish 1-finger head with a moderate pour. Head was white and settled to a coating which lasted throughout. Lacing was minimal. Nose was some pine and citrus notes, particularly grapefruit, pineapple, and lemon-lime. Taste: Hop presence but this was a malty IPA. Sweet caramel malts predominated with hints of fruit and oak. There was some alcohol warming/burn which I felt was a little out of control. Bitterness (especially at the end) was there, but moderate. Texture was medium, sticky, slick and with healthy carbonation. Overall, this was a decent offering but not one I would go out of my way to have again.

Can pours a golden straw color with white head. Aroma is fragrant grapefruit and light grass. Taste is medium sweetness, medium bitterness with a crisp dry finish. I would say the oak may take away from the beer a bit as I really enjoy the hop character in this one.

Tons of grapefruit in the flavor profile and the aroma. Very lively. Oak is subtle in the background. Abv is well hidden and bitter given the Malts needed for the abv. Great job!

Can sample at a tasting. Thanks Davidís friend! Clear golden-orange with a white foam. Hoppy aroma with pine needles, some malt and resinous notes. Flavor starts sweetish with a bit of malt and continues bitter and resinous. Medium-bodied.
