A - Hazy golden yellow with a one-finger white head.

S - Not much going on here. Some hops and faint tropical fruit.

T - Sweet with strong citrus right upfront. Hops bring a nice bitterness in the finish. The oak an vanilla only appear when the beer warms.

M - Thick and creamy with a medium carbonation.

O - Nice DIPA. Extremely drinkable at 9.7%, which makes it dangerous.

A: A nice golden yellow color that is transparent, a nice white head at the top that leaves some nice lacing around the glass the whole way through.

S: Lots of citrus and tropical fruit on this one with nice fresh hops and slight hints of roasty malts that subside the bite on the bitterness.

T: A biscuity taste up front that leaves behind the bitterness of the hops and some nice smokeyness on the tail end.

M: Medium bodied and a good amount of carbonation on this one.

O: This is a nice refreshing DIPA, from 21st amendment, very well balanced and leaves a good taste in the mouth when done.

Poured it from a can into. Tulip glass.

Smells and looks great, light lacing from the head that dissipated rather quickly.

Unfortunately the flavor profile doesn't really do it justice. It tasted a little boozy and too strong to properly enjoy. I prefer the Brew Free or Die IPA instead.

12oz can from Arbor Place Bottle Shop (Douglasville, GA). 9.99/ 4 pack. Canned 6/7/13. Served in a Terrapin goblet.

Pours clear, pale gold with two fingers of thick white foamy head which lingers and leaves large sheets of lace.

Aromas of piney and floral hops backed by an oaky sweetness.

Bitter robust hops lead. Flavors of orange peel, pine, sweet bready malts, oak, floral notes, peppery spice and a little alcohol. A favorable balance of hoppy and sweet.

Oily medium body with subtle yet present carbonation. Coats the tongue for a prolonged hoppy, oaky finish.

My favorite from 21st Amendment and one of my favorite IPAs in a can. I've always enjoyed the balancing sweetness provided by the oak. When it's in season I'll pretty much always have some in the fridge. Definately worth a try if you've never had it.
