12oz can at the spring 2017 ASMF.
Puts with a lightly hazy body topped by a large, durable, foamy, bone - colored head.
Pine and fruit hop notes dominate the aroma and the flavor, with some biscuit from the malt appearing in both. Moderate bitterness for style.
Medium body and carbonation.

Brew Free Or Die IPA | 21st Amendment Brewery. Poured from the can into a pint glass, the head is three fingers thick, with solid lacing, and medium golden amber body.

I smell an abundance of pine and citrus malts with a honey biscuit malt foundation.

Tastes like mildly sweet malts upfront with the hops doing a top job accenting this brew with pleasant bitterness.

Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Overall, I'll give Brew Free Or Die IPA | 21st Amendment Brewery 4.5.

a really smooth west coast IPA, hoppy and malty but not too bitter. Lots of citrus/tropical flavors with some honey for balance. Very drinkable.
