Brew Free or DIE! IPA

Hey guys,

Long time no talk, but here’s a review of a pretty damn good beer to make up for it. I picked up a 6-pack of this independence brewery beer from the corner store the other day, mostly because of the packaging. These 6 cans come in a cardboard box with an awesome depiction of Mt. Rushmore on it, take a look.

Needless to say they have flawless marketing, I think Ol’ Abe would agree. On the cans the same awesome design, making this beer a visual pleasure as well as potable one.Brew Free! or Die- low res

Drinking straight from the can, I got mostly grassy/hoppy flavors up front, with a subtle citrus notes mixed in. The malt component of this beer is noticeable, a medium to dark toasty/bread flavor. The aroma is subtle, consisting of muddled hoppy smells. The real seller for this IPA i guess would be the overwhelming bitterness on the back-end which is what most hop heads nowadays look for in their dryhopped or hop infused or hop bombed bitter brews. With that aspect in mind this beer is favorable I would say for veteran beer drinkers who appreciate hoppy beers, otherwise you might find this brew a tad too bitter for your palate. Also at 7% alcohol this is not your sit down and watch the football game 6 pack either, in fact its more like sit down and sip at a beer garden or with your hipster friends at their Orwellian themed dinner party. All in all it’s not a bad beer.
