Well....I am trying a can of Hop Crisis...from Cold Spring, MN...however....I am putting my rating on 21st Amendment out of San Fran....so how do you answer this Beer Advocate???? The beer pours a clear yellow with thin white head that appears to be lacing. The smell is grapefruite balanced by malt. The taste includes a hop coating on the tongue makes this beer very good. The mouthfeel is a fuller body with good carbonation. Overall I would sip opn one of these....not session....to powerful.

A - Pours a medium gold color with a thick, creamy, foamy layer of head sits, stays, and doesn't subside!

S - WEAK nose for a 9+% beer. Very light malt, mildly earthy, and smells pretty much like flavored water to me. (sorry to say)

T - Sweet crackery caramel malt up front, miniml hop character, maybe a little lemon rind, grapefruit, and oranges (and I'm really digging for that description).

M - Smooth and creamy but feels totally DEAD on the tongue.

O - I'd love to give this beer another opportunity with a fresher batch because I can detect it's potential.

Right off the bat, I knew something was different about this beer. I could smell a sweetness as I was pouring the beer, and I was quite excited for the first sip. I was a little disappointing at first, but then as the beer warmed up just a little, all the subtle flavors just popped. There was an awesome hop presences in the beer that was perfectly complimented with the strong oak flavor. Quite a fantastic beer, and one I'd highly recommended to everyone.
