Brew Free! Or Die IPA

Brew Free! Or Die IPA from 21st Amendment Brewery of San Francisco  California is a canned beer that is worth buying just for the artwork on the cans, and on the cardboard box that a six-pack comes in.   Now, I know that the beer needs to stand for itself, but the packaging is seriously cool.   So now that we have that out of the way, how is the beer?   Well, in a word, excellent.   It’s a traditional IPA, with citrus and floral notes in the nose, orange and a bit of bread in the middle, and seriously biter hops in the grassy finish.   It’s clean, well-executed, and the transitions are well balanced with nothing overwhelming or under-stated.  My verdict is that this is a really good IPA.

I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
