At Al's of Hampden.

A: The DIPA is an amber color, plenty of yellow adding a Central PA in fall look. A thin head, white, comes along.

S: The nose has citrus hops but generally the maltiness stands out. Balance levels things out, adding malty breads.

T: A moderate hop profile not as much as a DIPA should have. Citrus is present but the breadiness seems to overpower it. The pairing seems to be more IPA than DIPA, breadiness taking the place of bold hops.

M: Too balanced to be a DIPA. That seems to be par for the course for 21st Amendment, balance at the expense of the green gold. I enjoyed the ale but it didn't feel like a double IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
