Absolutely not knowing what to expect, I cracked this one on a whim on a bright Sunday afternoon. Let's see what our boys in CA have cooked up and canned!
Well for starters 21st IPA is a pretty impressive looking brew... lots of lacing that falls off a big white head, a pale rich gold beneath that seems unfiltered. No problems here.
Smells pretty decent too, an initial big grapefruit / citrus hop rush and a bit of sharp alcohol (alas!) upfront, tiny sweet malt bits underneath. A little cheesy, resiny hop note is here; overall this is fine but won't win any awards.
Tastes surprisingly hoppy and sharp for a (canned!) IPA... interesting. This is West Coast goodness all the way, if you swing for that sort of thing - in your face bitterness, citrus pungent punchy, and just a little boozier than it has a right to be (7.2%?!). Rather drinkable all the same, this comes laden with a little astringent dryness that isn't all that welcome, just a touch more caramel malt richness would help even that out, methinks.
Mouthfeel & carbonation are fine. Typical IPA, rather quenching. Oddly drinkable for the abv too, seems more like a 6 percenter. Hmm...
21st Amendment IPA is a good IPA, perhaps a bit overrated on this site IMO, but don't let that keep you from trying it if you can. Get it? CAN?! I kill me.

A-Thin white head. Orange, rich amber body.
S-Nice aroma of citrus and hops. Faint pine.
T-For me, the taste is desirable. A nice balance of hops, citrus, and pine.
M-Crisp, nice dense carbonation in the mouth, medium bodied.
O-This is a very good, middle of the road IPA, in terms of drinkability. Not too light, not too strong. Very drinkable.
Serving type: on-tap
