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.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 9/5/2013. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, lemon zest, light honey, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, lemon zest, pine, light honey, bread, floral, grass, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, pine, floral, grass, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice complexity of hop flavors with moderate malt balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good IPA. Good complexity and balance of hop and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
