21st Amendment 'Brew Free! Or Die' IPA

2st Amendment Brew Free or Die IPA 1
21st Amendment Brewing 'Brew Free! Or Die' IPA. 7% abv. 70 IBU. Orange-honey color. Nearly two fingers of white foamy head. Excellent retention and lace. Nose of sweet light fruit, citrus, floral hops. Front taste of light malt, sweet grapefruit peel, mild bitter floral hops. Aftertaste of bitter herbal hops, citrus rind, mild flowers. Light body. Mouthfeel is warm, tangy, slightly thick, slightly carby.

This is an excellent IPA. The light malt taste is behind each step if this tall hop bill, a mix of several tastes ranging from mild bitter to sweet-fruity and floral. This is one of those IPAs that tastes just a step away from an imperial IPA. Very good brew. Well recommended.

From the brewery:

"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."
