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.

Out of the can into a pint glass - nice nose (caramel and mild citrus). Orange color with a nice 2 finger head that dies fairly quick down to a slim white topper. Little carbonation but nice lacing. Goes down smooth as silk with big malt backbone nicely balanced with bitter hops. Not a hop bomb at all - a near perfect balance of malt and hops. Will buy again.

CacheManyHose (604) - HONG KONG - OCT 24, 2016
Can from Safeway poured into a tumbler. Drank in SF whilst staying at the Beacon. Clear dark orange with small white head. Smells of quite strong caramel malt, bubble gum esters, moderately piny and spruce/grass hops. Body is oily, touch of malty/doughy sweetness, mostly bitter, light carbonation. Decent, good malt/hop balance (though malt is a bit strong/doughy in the nose).

Vaiz (4334) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2016
Can at home. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, tropical fruits, lychee and somewhat floral. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and very refreshing. Nice brew.

ineedbeer (1860) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz can with a best by date of 11/11/2016. Aroma is hop forward with a lot of grapefruit, pine resin, and dank notes. Medium malt notes with cracker, toasted bread and some lighter caramel. A hint of alcohol. Pours a fairly clear, pale, golden orange with a medium sized, thick, white head that slowly recedes to a thin film that lingers. Moderate lacing and no legs. Flavor has a moderate sweetness with cracker, toasted bread and some light caramel malt notes. Medium high bitterness and a hint of alcohol spice with a fairly dry finish. Medium strong hop notes with a definite woodiness, but also some grapefruit and pine resin. Hints of other citrus and fruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty boring IPA. Too malty and the hop profile is old fashioned and woody as opposed to fruity and tropical. It is a clean beer though.

lownote (530) - Austin, Alabama, USA - JUL 24, 2016
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.
