Last year, 21st Amendment Brewery partnered up with homebrewer extraordinaire, Mike “Tasty” McDole, to collaborate on a delicious, limited-release IPA. The beer came and went far too fast so the brewery decided to bring it back for good. Releasing in six-packs, 15-packs and 19.2oz cans, Tasty IPA returns this September through March 2019 – though it may look a little different than you remember.
“The original artwork featured McDole laying in a bed of hops, which inspired the direction for Benjamin Franklin, a man who was an advocate for homebrewers,” said Nico Freccia, co-founder of 21st Amendment Brewery. “This new design fits perfectly into our brand portfolio and we are excited for its permanent place as our fall to winter seasonal.”
Derived from test batches of McDole’s own homebrew recipe, this 6.8%, gold-colored IPA is the perfect beer to have on-hand when you have history to make. With bright, fresh flavors and aromas of hops, tropical stone fruits and a hint of spiciness, it will be difficult to have just one.
“If you like hops, and you love IPA, this is the beer for you,” said Shaun O’Sullivan, co-founder and Brewmaster of 21st Amendment. “We used Calypso, Ekuanot and Azacca for flavoring; CTZ for bittering and Simcoe, Calypso and Ekuanot in the dry hop.” Ben Franklin once said, ‘well done is better than well said’ and this beer is sure to prove that theory.
Coming into the seasonal slot as Hell or High Watermelon winds down with summer, Tasty IPA will be available in all 21A distribution markets including AK, AZ, CA, CT, DE, FL, GA, ID, IL, KY, MA, MD, ME, MN, NC, NH, NJ, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, SC, VA, VT, WA and Washington D.C.
