21st Amendment Blah Blah Blah IPA

I saw this beer sitting in the cooler at my local beer store and since I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, I threw it in the cart.

ABV: 8%

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We are huge fans of IPA and love our hops like anyone else, but we also like to have fun. Our Blah Blah Blah IPA is a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the popularity of this style and all the sub-styles that have become part of craft beer conversations and offerings. This is a deep gold color, double IPA (of course) and jammed packed with hop flavors and aromas. With nine different hop varietals, on top of late-kettle boil additions, this beer has a juicy, hop chewy flavor. IPAs are here to stay and Blah Blah Blah in many ways is a tribute to their prevalence and popularity and we love it. So, grab yourself a Blah Blah Blah IPA and celebrate this plentiful style and hoppy indulgence.”

Random: This beer came in at 65 IBUs.

The beer poured with a finger and a half of pure white head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing with a significant crown as well. The body had a slight haze to it and was orange in color. There was moderate carbonation as well. The nose was filled with pine needles and some tropical fruit, specifically mango and pineapple. There was no malt on the nose. The taste was also incredibly piney with some cat urine that was to the point of being off-putting. It had some orange peel too. Alcohol came through next and was very prevalent. The body was medium thickness with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with pine sap. A can of this was $2.08, which broke down to $.17 per ounce. This beer was alright, but a bit simple. I wouldn’t buy this one again.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
