A- Pours a nice clear orange, thick creamy 1 finger of head.

S- Smells like caramel and tropical fruits, hint of citrus. Sweet smelling. It's pretty complex and enjoyable.

T- Sweet caramel like flavor seems to hit first with a bitter finish. Not what I was expecting for an IPA but similar to the nose.

M- Smooth and creamy with a little bite on the end, medium to high carbonation.

O- An interesting IPA that I enjoyed and would drink again. But wouldn't be my first choice.

12oz can. A golden amber with a nice large lasting off white head on the pour with good lacing through out. Aroma is citrus piney hops, some caramel malt with some fruity notes. Bitter earthy piney hops dominate along with some good caramel malt and some grapefruit and citrus fruitiness. Palate is a med to full bodied clean crisp mouth feel. Finish is an earthy, piney spicy hops, some nice citrus notes with some good caramel malt on the end for balance. This brew has a big hop bite, a hop heads delight. Overall a very good IPA.

Enjoyed in a pint glass

A: pours a clear golden color with a few carbonation bubbles and three fingers of white fizzy bubbled head that lingers very nicely, and leaves spotty lacing around the glass
S: kind of an interesting scent that im not sure ive seen in an IPA before, kind of vanilla and interesting malt with just a slight grassy and slight citrus hop notes
T: hmm i guess id call it more malty than anything, interesting hop character, similar to the grassy scent id noted before, taste is decent but just not quite what was expected for the style
M: smooth, medium carbonation, slightly dry on the palate afterwards
O: just a decent brew, not one that stands out to me for the style but im glad i tried it, probably wont make the list for the summer and probably wont buy it again, there are just too many better IPAs out there

Canned On: 11/14/11

Bright, clear orange-amber color topped by a fluffy, off-white head. Sweet toffee and biscuit malt covered with an herbal and citrusy hop stickiness. Fruit, citrus, and pine bitterness works with a solid, sweet toasted malt base. The malt and hops are about equal intensity. Medium bodied.

Maybe I'll try a fresher can to see if there was something wrong with this batch, or if this IPA just can't maintain it's flavor for very long. Right now this is alright, but not up to par with the rest of the 21st Amendment beers I've tried. Not bad, but I expected a lot more looking at the hop profile.
