21st Amendment Brewery
California, United States

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.

Pours a deep gold color, finger of white head. canned 11/11/13

Smell is big on pine, caramel, bready malt, a nice grapefruit and tropical smell to it aswell.

Taste is pine, herbal dankness, resin, underlying citrus chrachters, a little booze, bready malt, caramel, biscuit malt, tropical undertones, finishes with a dry piney bite

Mouthfeel is pretty full for a single IPA, dry, oily but not to hard on the palate at the same time

Well it is certainly a older school IPA, a lot of dank pine an light citrus notes. Frankly it was a nice change of pace from all the tropical bombs that are out there nowadays, huge malt backbone... Based on todays standards some might confuse this for a high ABV APA. But damn is it tasty, balanced and o so drinkable!
