Beer Review 34 // Down to Earth by 21st Amendment

This time we leave the Canadian borders and head to the slightly crazier states. The following beer I actually picked up whilst visiting family in Boston, a trip I get to do once every four months. The sole reason for wanting this beer was due to the can art. It just puts a smile on face and I can't help but love it! Cheeky monkey's just always makes me smile.

Details

Name: Down to Earth
Style: Session IPA
Brewery: 21st Amendment
Country: USA
Price: $12 (US) for 6 cans
ABV: 4.4%

Commercial Fluff:
"Whether you have a long mission behind you or a full afternoon ahead, this session IPA will help keep things real. More relaxed than an IPA, but with all the hop aroma and flavor. Down to Earth is our Tribute to unsung heroes and unplanned adventures. Down to Earth is the natural evolution (pun intended) of Bitter American, our original session ale. We thought it would be fitting to bring our space chimp home and let him chill. Down to Earth is available year-round in six-pack cans and on draft and pairs nicely with a variety of things, including lunch."
Own Opinion

Sight: Pours a Golden straw yellow with a foamy white head that lasted for the whole drink.

Aroma: Quite sweet with aromas of pineapple, grapefruit and other tropical inspired sense. Rather pleasing.

Taste: A good crisp mouthfeel full of citrus pith, piney resin and a pepper spice on the tongue. Finishes with a good strong bitterness. Really enjoyable.

Would I buy it again? Yes. After destroying the six pack I can say I would buy again. It makes for a great lazy afternoon drink and is perfect for boardgames and house parties!

What more can be said. This is a perfect example of a Session IPA, lower alcohol but still packs a massive flavour punch! This beer is true competition to my favourite Session IPA called Neck Oil by Beavertown Brewery.

So have you tried this beer? What did you think of it? Hit me up here or on google+ I would love the feedback. Cheers.

Comic Review 86 // The Outside Circle: A Graphic Novel by Patti LaBoucane-Benson

Time for something completely different. Been reading a lot of sci-fi comics and graphic novels but I wanted a bit of a palette cleanser, so...
