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.

While I love the style, an IPA brewed with a lager yeast (Great Divide did this many years ago), and whilw this Cold IPA from 21st Amenent is not a bad beer, it is also quite forgettable. It does not stand out in any positive way, other than that it‘s well done, very clean and extremely easy drinking. Aside from that, I can‘t recommend it to my friends -it‘s almost a very well made beer without character.

It's a transparent gold with a white head. The hops are present in the nose, but sadly not as much on the taste buds. I feel like it's missing that bright bitter notes that most IPAs have as their trademark. The mouthfeel is also rather muddled. I hope it's just a bad tapline.

Large long lasting foamy off white head with great lacing over a modestly hazed amber/gold body. Hop focused aroma hosted notes of citrus and pine. Taste mirrored those qualities, perhaps just a bit more intense, as they lingered in front of the emerging malt framework. Moderately bitter mouthfeel as the pine comes back around.

Pours a cloudy gold with a nice persistent rocky head. Smell is citrus hops- lemons and oranges. Taste has a nice malt backbone. Resinous piney hops through the middle and finish. Very solid IPA flavor profile. Full bodied. A nice IPA overall.

12oz can into a pint glass.
L: Pours dull lightly hazy apricot amber w/a 3/4" soapy off white head. Light sediment in suspension. Good carbonation. Some head retention down to a thin cream. Some light lacing & banding.
S: Pineapple, stone fruit, melon, light grass, earthy. More malty as the beer warms.
T: Moderately sweet, caramel malts, pineapple, orange, melon rind, over ripe plum, citrus rind, some breadiness as the beer warms. Gentle bitterness in the finish with a medium length linger.
F: Semi-juicy medium bodied mouth feel w/a medium dry finish that lingers a bit.
O: A fruity tasting & fairly full flavored hop frwd American IPA that is quite refreshing. Sweetness & bitterness are poignant, lightly sharp and are well balanced. It is very good in it's style.

Very delicious and refreshing IPA. Has a west coast flair to it, with the pine and tangerine profile mixing nicely together for a clean finish and crisp taste.

Pours a rich gold color with a creamy white head. Well balanced with a caramel malt flavor. Mildly sweet bitterness. A very drinkable west coast IPA.
