I appreciate the endless innovation of craft beer. Craft brewers continuously test boundaries and bend rules, coming up with new versions of classic styles all the time. If there’s one area where this has gotten a bit out of hand though, it’s IPA. As of this week there are approximately 63,000 IPA styles. It’s a world gone mad when classic West Coast IPAs like Stone IPA are overlooked, and English IPAs are considered malt bombs. 21st Amendment‘s Blah Blah Blah IPA is a reaction to this trend. It hearkens back to classic west coast double IPAs, and it does a damn good job of it.

Blah Blah Blah IPA pours a deep gold with a thin white head. Citrus hops dominate the aroma, with some tropical fruit. The flavor also has lots of citrus hops, with a piney finish. It has enough clean malt flavor for a bit of balance. It is very smooth drinking for a double IPA, giving little hint that it weighs in at 8% ABV.

The joking continues on the label with the overly precise 63.3015 IBU measurement and a nonsensical .0528 “Wetness Factor.” IPAs have fueled the growth of craft beer the past couple decades. To try to destinguish themselves breweries have started throwing some crazy stuff into their hoppy brews. You won’t find any fruit, vegetables, or black malts in Blah Blah Blah IPA. You will find a flavorful beer and a dose of tongue in cheek humor. I enjoy the humor and I could drink this great IPA any time!
