COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I thought I rated this so going from memory. The main thing I remember is a nice orange citrusy taste with a good malt but not too sweet background. Nice.

Can on Virgin American flight. Aroma is pine, ammonia, something sweet and fruity, maybe melon and orange. Taste is mild marmalade-y with bitter peels.

BigBeer45 (1395) - Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Drank from a tulip, poured from a can, this IPA had a light to medium orange pour and gave a one finger white and faint off-white cover that was somewhat lasting, there was a faint haze in the glass, the nose had orange and grapefruit citrus hop aromas, light toasted malt and faint bread, orange fruit and some melon like notes as well as some orange jelly sweetness, the flavors were fruit and grass hops with some pine and resin, light toasted malt, there was less sweetness than on the nose, there was a good hop bitterness that dried the tongue a bit with a little malt following, the mouth feel was less than medium, it felt light for a 7% alc. beer, it was creamy, and had average to lively carbonation, the hops were light tropical fruit with a touch of grass, light malt and fruit sweetness, the flavor had a good hop bitterness, a nice drink.

Pours a golden color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready malty tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste.

Golden pour. Nose of light hop with more sweetness. Initial taste is sweet malt with a quick transition to bitter. Very drinkable beer.

S_Side_Smitty (689) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2016
Pours gold with a medium white head. Aroma is deep dark dankness with some malt. Taste is rich tamarind sweetness with deep deep hoppiness and a dry aspirin-bitter finish. A truly interesting palate.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

hoptimusPrimed (154) - SPAIN - MAR 30, 2016
A nice IPA with good notes of fruit. From can and a little metallic. Good balance and not crazily hoppy.

Pours dark orange with medium head. Aroma: ripe tropical fruit, biscuit. Taste: again a lot of tropical fruit, nice pine bitterness in the taste and good long bitter palate. V good.

TXBadger (2388) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Pours a cloudy/hazy yellow golden color with white head. Citrus, pine, and some floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes much like it started. Decent but average IPA.
