Brew Free or Die IPA

Brew Free or Die IPA

Ratebeer 3.64 93rd percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +4

The first sniff lets everyone know that this is an IPA that means business. It is big on citrus and pine hops with those pale malts barely peaking through. Despite the big nose, it is a very drinkable IPA. Every sip is creamy and smooth with pale malt. This is followed shortly by a big, but not overwhelming, pine hop bitterness. I place this one just above Brockton but below Pliny.

Aftertaste +1

It was nice and wet finish with lingering pale malts and sweet pine hops.

Alcohol Content +1 7%

Value +1

If I could get it at home I would drink it all the time.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Is this a dream, am I still in Seattle? With all these great beers my palate has gone to heaven.

Overall 8/10

This is yet another tasty, bold IPA.
