look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: from can into pint - medium gold beer with a full head of off-white foam, some lacing left behind

S: some pale malt and herbal notes

T: nice full malt flavors and hoppy overtones, bitter over smooth butterscotch

M: medium body, moderate carbonation, some fizz, some coating

O: A good, but not exceptional IPA - gotta try for fans of the style, as 21st Amendment is a great brewery - but wasn't anything that really knocked my socks off - let's call it a reliable representative of the style

12 oz can poured into a pint glass. Canned on 10/05/12 (just over 3 1/2 months old).

Pours out deep golden color with just a bit of a sunlight orange color. A nice fluffy, somewhat soapy looking 3 fingers of head after the pour. It eventually settles to a nice retentive layer while leaving some nice lacing behind. A bit of a cloudiness to it.

At first I get a real pithy orange/ citrus peel aroma. As it warms, some vegetal matter , floral,mand hints of onion become apparent, but the main focus remains the citrus peel. Just a bit of malt heft in the back.

Orange, grapefruit citrus, floral, and vegetal matter with just a hint of onion. Just a bit of a caramel, bready malt provides a bit of a backbone. Not a whole lot of bitterness for an IPA. A bit off in the flavor due to the weird vegetal flavors going on.

Smooth with a rather low amount of carbonation. Some resin left on the palate.

Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this beer.

12oz can poured into a room-temp pint glass.

A- Hazy golden-orange color with enough carbonation to show through the sediment. I poured this twice into two seperate glasses because the head and lacing were massive. A billowy, off-white colored 2-plus finger head that tapers to a minimal head; it never goes away. The lacing is so thick and clingy that it looks like foam on the inside of the glass. Amazing. If I didn't see it for myself, I'd question if it were for real.

S-Citrus IPA all the way to start, strong grapefruit aroma. The malts and sweets come alive as it warms.

T-Mld citrus flavor with a big malt backbone. The hops and yeast battle it out.

M-Light and crisp, it seems softer than 7% abv. The finish is malt sweet and yeast dry; can I get some hop bite here, please?

O- I took two of these just to check the accuracy of my pour, so it can't be bad!
