Notes / 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.

F: Slight grassy finish with strong scent of hop.
Overall: decent IPA on the more bitter spectrum. Not too bad for supermarket beer.

Picked up a variety pack from this brewery on sale for the same price as a variety pack of Southern Tier- already tried Southern Tier, thought it was alright, thought I'd give this brewery's offerings a try. First impression was very good considering the price I got them for... stands up against Deschutes, Voodoo ranger and my other Go-To IPAs.

Tasted better than it looked/poured. Perfect amount of bitter... hoppy but not in a distinct or fruity/piney way. The way I think an IPA should be.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look: Rich amber, cloudy/hazy. Looks like beer
Smell: mild hop smell, more malty i guess. Pleasant.
Taste: sharp, good hop flavor without being overwhelming bitter. Mild aftertaste, which is pleasant
Feel: light, crisp

Final Thoughts:

After a hard day mining internet for some rich fuck with a dumb idea about changing the World, I turned off my computer, ignored my family's pleas to spend time with them, and poured my first beer. Decent lacing and head, she looks good on the pour. Let me tell you: I've seen shit. Blood and bits pouring from orifices, sinew stretched and snapping. A major outage on a popular internet service brings out the worst in people. Project managers tearing each other limb from limb to appease their ewspective Gods in the Various Departments of Generic Internet Company. UNWHOLESOME EFFLUVIA MIXED WITH TEARS AND SCATTERED AND DISPARATE LOGS FILES. True horror.
