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.

This is a good beer. I'll have it again. Good aroma and taste. This would be a great summer beer, chill'n on the deck under my hops.
Worth a try. Cheers

This is a pretty unique beer I think. The color is very gold, and quite clear (too clear!). The smell is really amazing, lots of hops but also lots of malty sweetness, a great balance. Taste is definitely more hops than malt, but still a good balance. Feel is crisp, can definitely tell it's 7%. abv though. Overall a very enjoyable beer.

Bonus - the packaging is fantastic. A 6 pack of cans in a box where Abe Lincoln dismounts from Mount Rushmore to kick ass? It is literally why I bought it in the first place.

Soft, round flavor for a west coast ipa, note on front is subdued and finish does not linger as expected.
