12/2/17....pours medium copper but still see through with a heavy layer of patchy white foam. Sharp citrus and floral nose. Light sweet malt that shifts into a fast pointed sharp bitter with a fade out. Resin based burn lingers after the close. Edgy IPA>

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a conical pint glass; serial but no clear production information evident.
A: Pours a hazy, orange to amber color with clearing to a one inch head and good head retention. Significant, fine lacing evident.
S: Aromas of orange, peach, mango, and pine.
T: Flavor far more on the pine than fruit end of things. Strong bite, and bitterness evident early and throughout.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly slippery feeling imparts a smoothness during consumption.
O: A solid, very enjoyable representative of the American IPA class. Looks more like a New England, but definitely tastes West Coast.

Cloudy orange colored. 3- to 4-finger head dissipating gradually, leaving lacing. Tropical-fruit aroma, mango. In the taste, nice malt-hop balance. Reminiscent of Bell's Two Hearted Ale, but with a bit more slightly bitter citrus pith in the finish. Pretty good, and definitely the best brew I've had from 21st Amendment so far. —Reviewed 2017/09/16
