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.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Thanks to riversideAK. Big coniferous hops aroma, a bit of a floral element, too. Pours a light, hazy gold with a thick off-white head and glass-coating lace. Flavor has a floral front against a husky malt backbone, soapy hops bitterness that overpowers the aroma hops a bit. Medium body, smooth and soft on the palate.

Best beer I’ve ever had in a can, directly out of the can, unfortunately. Surprising hop aroma and taste, not too bitter. Nice.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Pours a transparent dark golden bronze with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramely malts with a mild grassy and grapefruity hop character. Starts with pretty good fullness and malty sweetness with a pleasant citrusy hop balance before a crisp, bittersweet finish. Could use a little more hoppy assertiveness, but is still quite drinkable.

12 oz can received in a trade a while back, poured into a tulip. A bit old, so lack of freshness may affect scores, but we’ll see. Pours clear amber with creamy, frothy off-white head. Aroma of very sweet caramel malt and floral/citrus hops. Taste is very sweet and caramel-ish, with some sweet fruit and pine. Crisp medium mouthfeel. Very good, I’d like to taste it fresh!

12oz can. I have had this numerous times since it showed up in the WA market a few months ago, but figured it is time to rate it. Nose is biscuity pineapple and malty peach. Tastes like a cracker up front. Moves into some citrus and tropical fruit and then malt and piney bitterness.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2009
GABF 2009, day 1: Fluffy carbonation along with a smooth texture. Rich malts but not overly malty. Moderate bitterness. Zingy hop finish. Not overly exciting but it’s a solid beer.
