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.

12oz can at home: Thanks to Sully himself for sending this to me! As soon as you pull the tab back, a wonderful hop aroma rockets up your nose. Pours a hazy dark gold with orange edges. Nice lightly off-white head fades but sticks to the glass. Man, thats a nice full aroma with big piney hops. Definite citrus twang also. Lightly tropical, almost going to pineapple. An undertone of sweet malt keeps this from being one sided. As it sits and the hops blow off a little, sweet pineapple juice and deep malt come to the forefront. Once tasted, the hops turn more grassy. Still pine and citrus zest notes in the hop character but a little more subdued with grass laying on top. Very nice upfront hop complexity. Malt is a little shy in the beginning but it works up the courage to step through the hop fog, Slowly rising from the back. Caramel swirls through the malt at the end. Medium body finishing with caramel and a full range of hops notes from pine to slight tin. Very nicely put together beer. Well balanced and flawlessly brewed. Tasty crack can!

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2009
Can pours golden color with thick pillow-like head. Aroma is some caramel, citrus, and pine hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follow the nose and mixes sweet caramel upfront with pine and citrus. Finish has the hop flavors linger for a while. I enjoyed this can of brew.

Can courtesy of snojerk321. Pours medium gold with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves great lacing. The nose is caramel malt and floral hops. The taste is sweet caramel upfront with some earthy hops in the middle followed by sweet citrus in the finish. Medium bodied. Decent IPA – thanks Torry.

Thanks to cloudskipper for this awesome IPA in a can. Crushed with Jakebra as usual. Excellent citrusy, hoppy, sweet nose. Flavor is pretty solid as well, just as not as much awesomeness present. Really dug this brew. Thanks again, Chris.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Can courtesy of WeeheavySD. Pours amber with a white head. Smells of citrus, pine and spicy. Tastes citrussy and sweet with a hint of melon on the finish.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Can, courtesy hopscotch. Pours a hazy, glowing, orange-amber color. A compact, foamy, off-white head is lasting, and it leaves sticky, broken sheets of lacing behind on the glass. The nose shows a sweet base of toffee, light biscuit, and malted wheat, while substantial, perfumy citrus blossoms, grapefruit and grassy hops lend significant bitterness. There’s a heap of buttery diacetyl, a trait I see is somewhat common in the canned version. Flavors follow suit, well balanced between sweet toffee and biting, bitter citrus and grass, yet again plagued by that buttery, chemical taste that is just off-putting. The body is substantial and well carbonated, but its cloying nature isn’t something I’m willing to forgive considering all of this brew’s other flaws. There’s a decent IPA lurking somewhere within, but the diacetyl is rampant.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Can... Cloudy golden ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is malty and fruity - Minneola and other tropical fruits - with an oddly spicy quality. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. Bittersweet, biscuity, fruity flavor. Lengthy, raspy, semi-dry finish. Thanks to WeeHeavySD for providing the can!

notalush (5732) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Thanks to WeeHeavySD for this one - pours a hazy gold, with a sudsy, lasting head - the aroma is of pine, grapefruit, and heavy sweet malts, with some tanginess/tartness that seem like the beginning stages of an infection - the flavor confirms these suspicions - starts with some chewy malt sweetness, tangy citrus/apricot, and grassy hop bitterness, but there is a tartness (almost a sourness) and earthy character in the background that definitely tastes like an infection setting in (judging by some other ratings, I am not the only one to encounter this problem) - tastes like a pretty good beer aside from this - I guess they just need to work on the quality control.

GABF 2008. Hazy pour with small head. Hoppy nose with citrus and malts. Flavor was malty goodness with tangerine, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Went back for many of these.
