Im getting amazing smells of herbal pine and an almost pink lemonade grapefruit smell as well. Its very smooth in the beginning with the caramel malts coming through with an exceptional smoothness which then turns into a strong dry herbal pine bitterness. I also get that grapefruit taste as well mixing in with the herbal pine bitterness. There’s really nothing else you could ask for in a beer. This is the best IPA I’ve ever had in a can.

draft offering...have had this before but never a proper rating..oh well here goes without all the technical jargon...this is the type of offering that I was pleased to see at an establishment that claims to have good beer but really doesn’t so this is kind of like the lifeline..a pretty standard ipa that isn’t gonna knock anyone socks off but at the abv is enough to get you going after a few..as usual another good product from 21st amendment...not bad overall...

Brilliant golden pour with thick white head. Aroma is juicy oranges and mango with tart grapefruit. Flavour has all that juicy goodness with great balance. Bitter throughout. Really nice.

On tap @ the brewery during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours a golden with a white head. Slightly dank hops in the nose with a bit of pine and cracker but not that overly aromatic. Moderate plus bitterness and moderate sweetness. Nice toasted malt flavor with some citrus fruits and mild dankness. Average. Clean but boring.

Can - Dry hop flavor, not a strong or pronounced hop which is nice. Very little sweetness from the malt. A good balance in flavor, something I can drink regularly and not just as a one off.

4 oz draft part of a flight at 21st Amendment’s brewpub. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of pine, citrus, floral notes. Tastes of caramel, citrus, pine, resin, light honey. Medium body with a dry finish. Solid.

Very sweet. Aroma has a whiff of Jolly Rancher (who cares what flavor) and the taste is about as good, with fruit swimming in white sugar.

Pours clearish golden with a med white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, big malt, bread. Taste is nice big bready malt & bitter hop finish lingers. Pretty good balance, decent ipa.

Brew Free or Die is a phenomenal West Coast IPA from the bay area. A potent mix of grapefruit and pine dominate the aroma and flavor. Appearance is light orange and the head has a creamy look, feel, and taste. The hop sensations are dry, sharp, resinous, and slightly oily. It doesn’t really bring anything new to the table for the style but its excellent flavor and balance still make it a must-have for lovers of hops.

Pours pale yellow with creamy white head. Grapefruit and pine aroma. Great hop bitterness with complex malt backbone. Tastes like a touch of wheat and some victory malt. I love this beer one of my top 5 west coast IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
