New Beer Blog 21st Amendment Brewery Down To Earth


In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from 21st Amendment.  It is their Down To Earth Session IPA.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery.  Let us get into this IPA.

It has a clear golden color without a head on this session India Pale Ale. The smell has a sweet malty to citrus notes. The taste has a light body of citrus to sweet malty notes. The aftertaste is quick and does not last.

Here is a description from their website (

Down to Earth » 21st Amendment Brewery

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. 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 available year-round in six-pack cans and on draft and pairs nicely with a variety of things, including lunch

In the end, let us face, session IPA’s are pale ales.  It has just a weaker malty backbone.  There is a few good session on the United States.  The one from New Belgium, which is Slow Ride, is pretty good.  I just found that the Founder’s All Day IPA is not really good.  I believe the craft beer drinkers are starting to see it now.  When I saw 21st Amendment made one, I was a little nervous.   I was hoping it would be good.  I have to say it is a good session IPA. I love this one. It became one of my favorites.  They found a way to let the hops shine but kept a nice malty backbone.  This is a great beer and I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Meta lit!  \m/
