E-Malt.com News article: USA, CA: Hop Crisis from 21st Amendment Brewery returns for 2012
21st Amendment Brewery announced on August, 10 the re-release of Hop Crisis, an oak-aged Imperial IPA at 9.7% alcohol by volume and 94 IBUs.
Hop Crisis is the latest installment in the 21st Amendmentís Insurrection Series, a limited edition, once-in-a-while, four-pack release of a very special beer that rises up in revolt against common notions of what canned beer can be.
21st Amendment co-founder and Brewmaster Shaun OíSullivan says of the idea behind the beer: ďA 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.Ē
Hop Crisis is available in four-pack cans and on draft beginning August 13th at bars and stores in all seventeen of 21st Amendmentís current distribution territories.
