Tampa’s Cigar City Brewing has teamed up with Massachusetts’ Grammy-nominated heavy metal band Killswitch Engage to brew an American IPA in honor of the 15th anniversary of the release of their seminal metalcore album “Alive or Just Breathing”.

Featuring bassist Mike D’Antonio’s signature artwork on the label, “Alive or Just Brewing” celebrates a landmark album and a classic style of beer.   Loaded with Citra, Mosaic, Motueka and Neslon Sauvin hops, this unique beer style uses white wheat and flaked oats to add additional body resulting in a full, juicy hop experience.  What better beer style to celebrate the New England band’s aggressive and innovative brand of metal than an aggressive and innovative take on an American IPA!

The release of Cigar City and Killswitch Engage’s Alive or Just Brewing IPA will coincide with the release of an LP version of “Alive or Just Breathing” hitting stores in May 2017.

Tasting Notes

Tangerine and fresh cut grass aromas set the stage for a big, fruit-forward IPA with a massive nose of mango and clementine. Assertive bitterness and pine needle flavors are tempered by a soft caramel malt character and a subtle sweetness while ripe citrus lingers on the palate.
