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.

deyholla (9917) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Can. Pours a pale golden amber with a white head that laces nicely. Aroma is full of pine hops, but is quite one note. Flavor is a bit more complex with a balance of sweet grains and pine hops throughout.

12 oz. can to tulip glass. Poured yellow golden color with off white head. Aroma is mellow citrus and honey with grapefruit scent. Taste is honey grapefruit and citrus. Palate is slick bitter and finishes dry. Overall it is a pretty tasty brew.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2010 A very decent brew. Poured from a 12 oz can (!). Color is light orange, with some very large carbonation bubbles showing. Carbonation is about on finger but it quicly dissipates. Aroma is certainly piney, but not overly strong. On first impression, this beer comes off as hoppy mostly in an aromatic way with not as much bitterness. There is a very strong malty backbone, reminiscent of sweet bread dough. A very decent beer, just donít drink it expecting it to bust your hop palate.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Enjoyed via draft in an English pub glass. The beer pours a medium amber color, with a moderately sized and thick head. The nose carries the obligatory American IPA nose of citrusy/piney west coast hops. Also present is a note of low crystal malt, which becomes more prevalent as the beer warms. The palate is moderately bitter up front, before showing some mild to moderate English caramel malt sweetness in the mid-palate to the finish. The lingering notes on the palate are balanced between residual notes of hop bitterness and English character malt sweetness. The yeast leaves little evidence of its work. Overall, a nicely brewed example of the style.

A decent IPA. Aroma as the commercial description says is AMAZING. From the moment you pop the top the hop aroma hits you. Very nice. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger white head. Taste was alright. More malty than hoppy to me. I was expecting a good west coast hoppiness but the caramel malt and hops seem to battling for control. The aftertaste is all caramel but has the mouth drying hoppiness there as well.

Had to pour this one out. Had a skunkiness to it that that rare IPA has that for some reason just tastes offensive a bit. I liked this beer in some places but the hops for me were off, they tasted too planty, like drinking cactus juice or juices squeezed from a mesh bag of fresh cut grass. I just couldnít take them. For me this was a similar experience to Andersen Valleyís Hop Ottin IPA which I could not drink. Just too much dryness astringent plant material to it. Not my fave.

can poured into a goblet. pours dark amber with large frothy head. Arouma of hay, grasss clippings and grains, some grape fruit notes too. Nice light caramel base thatís almost (but not quite) overwhelmed by the huge hops presence. Finishes bitter but not lingering so Iím pretty impressed came out of a can.
