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.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass. A: Pours an amber color with tiny specks of yeast floating around. The head is a creamy two finger offwhite shade. While retention isnít the greatest, I love the texture and the lacing it leaves behind. S: The hops have faded a bit on this one, but it still provides hints of pine and grapefruit. Thereís a lot of caramel and toffee malt featured here, as well. Decent aroma here. T: I first notice some minor piny hop flavors to start, before it washes away with a lot toffee-esque malt. The finish is earthy with touches of fruity esters (unheard of in an American IPA, it seems); to the point where one could mistake the back end for excess booziness. The earthy nature of the malts arenít my cup of tea, but itís okay otherwise. Seems to be a bit more complex than many others in the style. M: Itís well attenuated for all of its maltiness, creating a fairly dry brew in spite of the faded hops and creamy feel. There is a bit of lingering sweetness on the front of the palate, which is expected. O: Gotta love a canned IPA, even if this one isnít fantastic. Iíll have to give this a second chance fresh.

Citrus pine mix of hop arona. Good blend. Medium high in strength. Clear gold with a white cap of head. A bit sweet, with I think crystal malt bringing the sweetness. Pretty thun body but bubbly.

Can poured into tulip. Very little head but great lacing. A bit malty for an IPA. Some citrus notes, but not overpowering. Slight aftertaste. Decent and not a typical IPA. Cool can as well.

gripweed57 (1325) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2016
12 ounce can. Honey gold color topped by a large rocky white head. Aromatic piney hop nose. Toasted malt and spicy hops. Typical west coast IPA. Spicy hops balanced by a crisp, nutty, toasted maltiness. Overall, easy to drink with a solid malty backbone. Spicy hops are there for the taking.

Kind of a strange IPA. Bright citrus, a little pineapple. Dry, thinnish, a lot of grassy bitterness at the finish.

Cloudy medium yellow pour, thin but white head. Nose is citrus. Bitter. Middle is a little soft fruit, and buckets of grapefruit zest. Finishes bitter and long.

12 oz can with very cool artwork. The malt stands up well to the hoppiness of this ipa. It's got the standard citrus hop flavor with a little more earth or herb touch, very nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ciocanelu (1073) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 12, 2016
Clear orange color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet citrus fruits like oranges, tangerines and a slightly dank note. Taste starts with the sweet citrus fruits backed up my some malts, gets more floral in the middle and finishes with medium bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall itís a really well made IPA.
