Brew Free or Die IPA, 21st Amendment Brewery, San Francisco, CA

Now, while back, I introduced many of you to DPA, perhaps the finest beer ever produced in a can. Many of you were doubters, but were believers after trying it. I am here to introduce you once again to a great can of beer, The 21st Amendment Brew Free or Die IPA. Now with a name like that, you expect the beer to come out of New Hampshire, but in actuality it comes from the left Coast, San Francisco. The Brew Free or Die isn’t overly bitter, but it does have a kick of bitterness. The taste more resembles a heavy IPA as compared to an IPA. The 7% ABV is a bit overpowering and dominates a solid malt flavor. And more importantly, it did not explode all over me like the Elm City Lager. Now, I am not saying this is a 5.0 beer, it’s not, but it’s a solid addition to the IPA family. The Brew Free or Die IPA gets a well deserving 3.5.
