Brew Free Or Die IPABrew Free Or Die IPA

Brewed by:
21st Amendment Brewery
California, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

12oz can dated 10/08/13 – purchased at Boynton Liquors San Jose, CA
Hotel tumbler glass – 11/20/13

A: Light caramel color body with very fine clarity to it. Thick and heady topping of beige whip displays some awesome hang time and leaves behind a mess of chunky remnants upon the glass all the way down the glass.

S: Piney with some dank herbal flowers and lacings of citrus fruit. Tangerine and orange mostly. Light and subtle cracker malt base of pale malts coming through. Not terribly aromatic but nice aromas none the less.

T: Firm bready cracker malt graininess with some moderate and smooth hop bitterness. Pine and dank weed mostly which is slightly resinous on the palate. Alcohol is really well disguised throughout. Not as hoppy as the nose leads on but nice and balanced for that matter.

M: Moderate to light fullness with a smooth and creamy texture. Nice dry snappy crisp finish with a slight resinous linger.

D: A fairly nice IPA with good balance to it overall but there are much better offerings on the shelf these days. Hops are a little boring by today’s standards.
Not something I would go out of my way seeking….again that is.
