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.

Fortunate enough to get a sixer from a friend in DC. Served from a can into a Citizen Cider snifter.

A: Vibrant orange, a very attractive IPA.

S: Some hops, but not as strong a hop aroma as I would have expected.

T: Floral hops overpower the underlying citrus hops that come through only very briefly. A spicy malt backbone is ever present--a bit too strong for my liking yet not entirely off-putting.

M: Pleasant and inviting.

O: I was excited to try this beer from a well-regarded brewery that does not, of yet, distribute to my current home-state of Vermont. And, while I must say that I was in no way blown away, this is a solid single IPA I'd buy fairly often if I could, even if I enjoy the can art more than the beer itself. Try it if you can get your hands on it, I'll be sticking with some local IPAs.
