21st Amendment "Brew Free or Die IPA"
21st Amendment Brewery - San Francisco, California USA
IPA (ABV 7%) (IBU 70)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a clear medium golden amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that diminished down to a few puddles and a large collar of residue, creating some excellent sheeting of sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a straw like malt, floral and grassy hops and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).

The taste was lightly bitter, mildly malty and a tad acidic with a hint of caramel from the start and then became very hoppy with a strong citrus peel bitterness and a decent alcohol presence towards the end. The flavor lingered for a decent while being of a bitter hoppy citrus taste.

Mouthfeel was a few steps beyond light in body with a dry oily texture and a nice lively carbonation.

Overall a brew with a good balance of bitterness and maltiness with a great hoppy citrus feel...
