Notes / Commercial Description:
Last year, we partnered up with homebrewer extraordinaire, Mike “Tasty” McDole, to collaborate on a delicious, limited-release beer we called Tasty IPA. The beer came and went far too fast and since then, we have all been craving another Tasty cheers so we decided to bring it back for good!

Served on tap at Murphy's pub in Alexandria. Shaker pint. Coppery orange color with a finger of foam. Nice rings of lacing. Nice resiny and tropical aroma. Flavor is honey biscuit malt, tropical fruit and a finish of pine. Tasty, indeed

A: The beer is relatively clear amber yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that left a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of mangos, oranges and pine are present in the nose along with hints of caramel malts.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of mangos and oranges along with hints of caramel malts and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a very good balance between the malts and hops and goes down easily.

Serving type: can

Copper filtered with lots of carbonation and 2 fingers of off white head.

Smells of green hops, earthy, dank, and tropical fruit. So far it has a profile like Pliny the Elder.

Tastes of dank green leaf, and juicy resin.

Medium, sticky, resinous body with moderate carbonation.

Got in Sacramento, drinking in Redding, Nov 27th, 2018. Excellent brew.

DATE: November 25, 2018... OCCASION: a lot of house work was done today, and some protein is needed--and wondering aloud, how many IPAs can one brewery create?!... GLASSWARE: Stoudts pint... pours a light golden body with small, slow and steady effervescence... its head is dirty white, splotchy sudsy, with a smattering of coral arching above its horizon... bright resin, lemon, thick bread malts--which balance this at the nose, at least... some floral aroma as well, something botanical that presents a light, airy quality... this has a vibrant, energized body, alive and resonant at the teeth... its mouthfeel is similar to its boast--lots of oily smoothness, thicker in the middle and memorable at the finish... at 6.8%, proportionate and substantial... big on lemon, resin, hay seed, spring flowers, and a buttery bread--delivers on its nasal promise and a bit more... so, another IPA from 21st Amendment? why not, if they keep producing quality products like this... not sure what makes this a seasonal, but this is a worthy member of a fifteen-canner... maltier than the label or the brewer would suggest, and that's not a detraction....

I got a can of this off the single shelf at my local Giant Eagle. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had floral pine notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus and pine flavors with a slight chalk taste. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

Amber golden color with a thick off-white head with great retention.
Aroma with notes of mango, pine, tangerines and stone fruit.
Flavor with notes of pine, mango, green resin, tea bags, tangerine, guava and grapefruit. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Delightful and rounded 70 IBUs.
Light towards medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Very good piney and leafy American IPA for hopheads who like green flavors ahead of tropical. Me like it.

A: A pale apricot colored amber with a massive off white head.

S: Grapefruit and tangerine with a light tropical fruit aroma as well. Slight caramel malt aroma.

T: Some tropical fruits, and tangerine with grapefruit finish. There is a long herbal bitter cling that I don't love. It hits you with some hops right up front, but after that there is a long bitter cling with nothing really backing it up.

M: Medium light body, fairly high carbonation, and a dry finish mixed with unpleasant bitter cling.

O: Overall probably not one I would go back to.

Classic IPA making techniques and a blend of old hops and new hops give the 21st Amendment Brewery all the tools that they need to put together a tasty IPA.

And the beer that they call Tasty IPA pours with a breaming golden hue and a bubbly austere. Its frothy eggshell cap brings a bold citrus, tropical and pitted fruit perfume across the nose. Its caramelized, toasty and nutty scent leads to a malty sweet, slightly biscuity taste with a rounded graham cracker character of honey and caramel.

The hops roll into a middle palate full of orange, apricot, grapefruit and fresh dates. Growing into a bitter taste late, the classic flavors of hops have its resinous, piney, citrus pith bitterness applying a clean coat of peppery bite on the finish. Mango, papaya and plum notes can be found peaking through the lingering malt sweetness which trends rich and earthy with a hint of fresh tobacco.

Bittersweet and seemingly British-like in its balance, the beer's earthy malts and nouveau hops become a medley that won't draw hop heads like its catnip, but it is a fond ale that finds favor with hop lovers of a wide spectrum as an any occasion beer with a linger of spruce and spice.

Picked up a single 12 oz canned in Utica, NY. I assume this was contract brewed at FX Matt / Saranac.

Looks the part, smell is grainy with a little citrus. Taste is solid, but unspectacular.

I enjoyed this one and may have it again if I see it on tap, but don’t like it enough to buy a six pack. It’s pretty average by today’s standards.
