It's a Hop Crisis! At least that's what the folks over at the 21st Amendment Brewery want you to think. Clever packaging and a freakin' killer Imperial Ale combine to make this one a repeat buy for me. First impressions are the most important and this one gives you a nice 2 finger head with a cloudy golden haze that made me wonder what my taste buds have in store. This one is 9.7 % Alc. with 94 IBUs and is aged on Oak Spirals. What - Oak Spirals? Come on - what kinda marketing is that? Don't know if I can taste the oak (is this supposed to be a Chardonnay?), but the finished product is awesome - highly recommended. Citrusy, Crisp, Malty and the alcohol is very well balanced. My crisis now - I need to grab another 4-pack.
This one was a tenner for a 4 pack down at my local Beer Shoppe - well worth it!
Propoganda from 21st Amendment --> Hop Crisis!
