21st Amendment (San Francisco, CA) announced the return of Hop Crisis today. Those who love hops, you’ll be glad this one is back. Hop Crisis is an oak aged imperial IPA, available on draft and in 4 pack cans.
“A few years ago, when hop prices shot through the roof, making it more difficult to brew bitter beers, we decided there was only one thing to do. Make the biggest, hoppiest beer we could imagine. And we really wanted to celebrate the Imperial IPA style by doing something a little more original. Aside from the higher alcohol and intense hop bitterness, we felt aging the beer on oak would add some additional layers of flavor. Because oak can overwhelm the hops, we chose a light, subtle oak character to accentuate the dry hop bitterness and add a unique character to the beer.”
