Athletic Brewing Free Wave NA DIPA Review

Free Wave is a fantastic IPA, that isn't an IPA, per say. It's a non-alcoholic (NA) IPA. It's also packed with citrusy, resiny (dare I say, dank?) hop aromas and fresh, chewy grain flavors, achieving an undeniably and exceedingly tasty balance of malt, hops, and moderation for the category. It's not only great for an alcohol-free beer, it's great as an IPA — ideal for those times you're ready for a beer, but craving the ritual more than the buzz. It's time to fess up: I crave this NA IPA.
