Pours a golden yellow-orange, white head with minimal lacing. Some caramel on the nose mixed in with citrusy, spicy hops. Plenty of sweetness and fruitiness on the tongue followed by a substantial, but nicely balanced hop bitterness. Goes down nice and easy, medium mouth feel and just a bit oily. Very good representation of the style.

Tap at brewery with commonmac and rosskyle and wildcard. Gold with white head. Typical ipa aroma. Solid hoppy flavor profile. Some resin. A good standard ipa.

sawbuck (410) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Some citrus in the aroma and a tiny note of pine. Nice deep yellow, almost gold, with a huge off-white head with some staying power. Sweet malt in the beginning. Rich mouthfeel. Bitterness oozeís in nicely. Some citrus, pine notes with bitterness....fresh. Finish is a smooth bitterness, doesnít overstay itís welcome, Solid IPA but nothing special.

SotallyTober (75) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2015
amber pour with a thin eggshell color head. has a pineapple, mango, pine, and a light citrus aroma. flavors of caramel, hay, pine resin, citrus, nutty, and faint floral notes. has a very strong malt backbone that some what over powers the hop notes. medium body that was sticky and chewy on the palate, with a mild bitterness that stuck around. not a bad brew overall.

edwardbass (621) - Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Clear amber color and a smallish white head. Aroma is pineapple, tropical fruit. Taste is a bit disappointing. Slightly astringent piney hops and not a lot of citrus hops. ABV is obvious in there, but not too much. The malt backbone is more prevalent than the hops flavor, which isnít to my liking. Citrus rind bitterness is long lasting with the dry finish. Not bad really, just not to my liking.

bigda83 (368) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Poured a clear amber color with minimal white head. Aroma was mainly citrus hops with a hint of floral. Flavor was grapefruit, lemon, and a bit of sweet malt. Lighter body and think texture. Average carbonation and bitter to finish. Solid IPA for sure. Doesnít really stand out, but Iíd gladly drink more.

Sask89 (498) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
On tap at 21st Amendment. Pours a hazy light amber colour with a frothier white head. Aroma is heavy in hop and fruits scents: peaches, apricots, slight grapefruit. Taste is mildly sweet but is balanced by a good bitterness throughout. Medium body, smooth on the palate, and lively carbonation. A really good IPA overall.

A nice IPA with medium carbonation. A nice choice of hops that blend well with the grains.

This is one IPA that does not satisfy my IPA palette. The malt is too extreme for me to taste the hop and pine resin and citrus load I expect in an IPA. Donít get me wrong, if you like more malt than hop and this is your style of IPA beer then have at it because its not my thing. Itís gross for me, and my other craft beer experts concur this is NOT a favorable IPA for us. Iíll suffer through this point because dumping a craft beer is abuse, but one thing is for sure is Iíll NEVER buy another Brew Free Or Die Young. 21st Amendment has SO MANY OTHER great beers to choose from.

Poured from the can of a fridge-pack (6), not sure why they bothered with the fridge-pack since all 6 are usually gone in about an hour and a half. I have bought about 4 sixes of this beer in the past week or two. Get some bitter in one drink and some fruit in the next, itís like a flavor adventure. I like the graphics on the can, but Iím not sure why Abe would be roughing up the other Mt. Rushmore presidents, but then again why does anyone do anything?!
