COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BREW FREE! OR DIE IPA is brewed with some serious west coast attitude. This aromatic golden IPA starts with three different hops to the nose, quickly balanced by a solid malt backbone supporting the firm bitterness. Our top selling beer at the pub, this IPA starts big and finishes clean leaving you wanting more.

Aber color with a generous white head. Citrus aroma, taste grapefruity with a clean finish. An excellent IPA, worthy of a hop-head.

Honestly when drinking this after a glass of red wine the fruitiness really comes out. Really solid IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bitter and hoppy, but not overly so. I appreciate an IPA that isn’t just a hop-bomb, this one is on that list. In a world where hoppiness is appreciated, a lot of IPA’s tend to taste similar, but this one tastes just a bit smoother than a lot of others.

On tap at the brewpub Sf. Clear golden / light orange coloured pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is nice floral citrus hop with some orange rind, poperie and hints of pine needle hop. Flavour has a down solid malt backbone with hints of caramel, toast, pine needle , citrus rind and bitter lemon. Reminds me a lot of sn torpedo. Palate is medium bodied, some sticky hop resin. Assertive clean hop bitterness. Very good.

Poured from can, haven’t seen this around here before, cool, pours a clear orange with a thin white head and some lacing the aroma has some citrus touches with a little bit of earthy notes as well, the flavor has a strong citrus front end with a nice crisp finish, not bad at all.

rjplumer (934) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Sweet grapefruit aroma. A golden amber body with slight haze. The head is an inch or so and laces the glass nicely. It has a good solid bitter bite but is surprisingly well balance with a malt that makes it taste bud friendly. Has rye like zest with a refreshing bold finish.

Slight fuirt scent followed by a yeasty bready smell. Taste is all hop and yeast taste with nice crisp finish. Has a nice light yellow golden color. I have been on a 21 amendment kick and this one hit my tougue just right wanting me to try more from you. Keep the good stuff coming from the west coast.
