21st Amendment Brewery (San Leandro, California) has announced that Tasty IPA will return in September with some new artwork and a reclassification making it the newest addition to the brewery’s Seasonal lineup.
Introduced in 2017 as a Limited Release collaboration between 21st Amendment and the well-known, highly-respected hombrewer Mike “Tasty” McDole, the new-look Tasty IPA is back to hit hopheads with the same India Pale Ale recipe that was “derived from test batches of McDole’s own homebrew recipe.” Thanks to a hop bill that uses “Calypso, Ekuanot and Azacca for flavoring; CTZ for bittering and Simcoe, Calypso and Ekuanot in the dry hop”, Tasty IPA (6.8% ABV) rocks “bright, fresh flavors and aromas of hops, tropical stone fruits and a hint of spiciness.”
“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.”
Tasty IPA officially returns in September and will hang around through March 2019. You can expect to find this Seasonal offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 15-packs of 12 oz. cans, 19.2 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer-friendly retailers, bars and restaurants located in Florida, California and throughout the rest of 21st Amendment’s distribution footprint. Prost!
