12 oz can into Duvel artist tulip

A - deep hazy yellow with moderate and quickly fading white creamy head.

S - sweet citrus rinds and grapefruit esters. Fairly strong hop aroma and quite delightful on the nose.

T - sweetness and hops are the profound flavors. pretty high citrus bitterness that lingers through most of the drink. This one is a heavy hopper indeed. This one would do nicely in a blind tasting I bet.

M - medium to full. Quite sweet and nears cloying but never exceeds it. It sticks with you and finishes heavy too.

O - had zero expectations as this was purchased on a whim. Not my favorite DIPA but damn it was pleasant to drink. The bitterness lingers wonderfully. I'm becoming more and more of a fan of 21st. This one is one to seek out if you havent had it yet.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

I lived 10 years a block from this brewer, a good friend is an investor, and I love their work. But, as solid as this is, it's not as good as the DIPA from my home town.

All the same: A must try and a great place to visit.

a - Pours a clear apricot amber with 2 fingers of fluffy white head, lots carbonation, and lots of lacing.

s - Smell is too subtle! What's here is of hops pine and citrus hops, tropical fruit, malts, and a bit of alcohol.

t - Taste follows smell. Hops forward! It's puckering as it zings your palate with pine and citrus hops, resiny, sweet malts, and tropical fruits. Long, heavy, peppery, zingy finish.

m - Clean finish. Nice feel! Medium bodied DIPA w low carbonation. Much bitterness, long finish, and pretty easy to drink. A bit too strong though for me.

o - Great mouth feel. SOMA San Francisco must enjoy this great, and growing, home town brewer.
