12oz can. A golden amber with a nice large lasting off white head on the pour with good lacing through out. Aroma is citrus piney hops, some caramel malt with some fruity notes. Bitter earthy piney hops dominate along with some good caramel malt and some grapefruit and citrus fruitiness. Palate is a med to full bodied clean crisp mouth feel. Finish is an earthy, piney spicy hops, some nice citrus notes with some good caramel malt on the end for balance. This brew has a big hop bite, a hop heads delight. Overall a very good IPA.

Enjoyed in a pint glass

A: pours a clear golden color with a few carbonation bubbles and three fingers of white fizzy bubbled head that lingers very nicely, and leaves spotty lacing around the glass
S: kind of an interesting scent that im not sure ive seen in an IPA before, kind of vanilla and interesting malt with just a slight grassy and slight citrus hop notes
T: hmm i guess id call it more malty than anything, interesting hop character, similar to the grassy scent id noted before, taste is decent but just not quite what was expected for the style
M: smooth, medium carbonation, slightly dry on the palate afterwards
O: just a decent brew, not one that stands out to me for the style but im glad i tried it, probably wont make the list for the summer and probably wont buy it again, there are just too many better IPAs out there

Canned On: 11/14/11

Bright, clear orange-amber color topped by a fluffy, off-white head. Sweet toffee and biscuit malt covered with an herbal and citrusy hop stickiness. Fruit, citrus, and pine bitterness works with a solid, sweet toasted malt base. The malt and hops are about equal intensity. Medium bodied.

Maybe I'll try a fresher can to see if there was something wrong with this batch, or if this IPA just can't maintain it's flavor for very long. Right now this is alright, but not up to par with the rest of the 21st Amendment beers I've tried. Not bad, but I expected a lot more looking at the hop profile.

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip

A: A very clear amber color with a very think white head that leaves a nice amount of lace.

S: Citrus and pine leaps out with a sweet malt to it. A little bit of a fruit or caramel aroma also

T: The hop bitterness jumps out at the front end but is not overwhelming. Very smooth with a sweet bite to it

M: Very smooth, medium carbonation. Very easily drinkable

O: This is a fantastic IPA. One of my favorites and is a normal rotation beer for me. Highly recommend this.

I was in Ohio and the local store had 21st Amendment beer and we picked up a six of Brew Free or Die IPA. The beer pours a darker clear copper with a thick foamy head, which laced nicely. Nose is not quite what I expected, definitely hop presence but lots of biscuity malt too. Taste is similarly balanced as well. Strong hop flavor mingles with a lot of murky malt flavors. The bitterness is a bit muted by the malts but definitely still there. Medium bodied with a crisp finish. Overall a well balanced IPA that is a nice change of pace from the typical hop-centric example.

Obtained as a thank you for bringing back some Great Lakes Blackout Stout for wintbs379 - thanks!

Poured into a pint glass from 12oz Can.

A - Pours out a clear orange with about two fingers of white-head. Good amount of lacing left over.

S - Tropical fruits, toasty malts come through predominantly.

T - The tropical fruits come through, as well as the toasted malts. Almost seems to have a caramel or toffee flavor to it as well.

M - Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. It finished very dry, not too bitter.

O - It was a good IPA - I hadn't had anything from this brewery before so it was a nice treat.

Consumed on tap 01/18 at a Taco Mac restaurant; reviewed from notes

A - nearly perfect clear medium-amber hue, but very little head and lacing (perhaps a result of a sloppy pour?)

S - Lemon and caramel aroma with ever so slight a whiff of alcohol

T - citrus bitterness is present and noticeable, but not potently bitter; lemony presence in flavor as well as aroma

M - almost unbelievably smooth and creamy, but finishes with a nice zip from carbonation

O - outstanding spin on IPA, bitterness is present, but subtle; beer is smooth (almost too much so)
