21st Amendment Brewery (San Leandro, California) has officially announced that Tasty IPA will be released as the next offering from the brewery’s Insurrection Series.
Dropping as the second release in their newly established Insurrection Series, 21st Amendment Brewery set out to create Tasty IPA so that they could both honor and collaborate with Mike “Tasty” McDole – a legendary craft beer personality, respected homebrewer and regular on The Brewing Network show “The Session”. Sourcing inspiration “from test batches of Tasty’s own homebrews,” the brewing team built this “hop forward creation” to feature Citra and Mosaic Lupulin Powder and Ekuanot hop pellets. Their efforts resulted in a 6.8% ABV India Pale Ale that “is rooted in friendship, created for the common love of homebrewing and dedicated to the American beer beauty known as Tasty McDole.”
“If you like hops, and you love IPA, you’ll definitely enjoy this beer… even in spite of the naked guy swimming in hops on the front of the can,” jokes Shaun O’Sullivan, co-founder and Brewmaster of 21st Amendment. “In all seriousness, this beer is delicious. The lupulin powder is made from the “heart of the hop,” where the hop resins and oils reside, giving this beer bright, fresh flavors and aromas of tropical stone fruits and pine, with a hint of spiciness.”
Tasty IPA will officially debut in September 2017 with availability in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft. You can expect to find this Limited Release brew at select craft beer establishments located in Florida, California and throughout the rest 21st Amendment Brewery’s distribution network. Prost!
