During the hop crisis of 2008, some breweries chose to skimp on hops, watering down their brew along with their integrity. During the same time, 21st Amendment chose to develop a very hop-forward imperial IPA. The packaging conveys the engaging story that the federal reserve was hoarding hops in a remote warehouse in San Francisco – Sean and Nico have to escape from Alcatraz to free the hops. 21st Amendment was hailed as the hero!
