3.1/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Color is light yellowish amber. 2 finger foam that dissipated slowly. lacing on glass.
Aroma is floral hops, bready. Pretty subtle, though.
Taste: Surprisingly bitter.
Mouthfeel: pretty good, silky mouthfeel. Ample carbonation.
Drinkability: Above average.

One of the better Independence brews I've had.

3.85/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear golden amber with an impressively sturdy head that leaves quite a few shards behind

Smell: Bready, almost biscuity, with a woodsy, slightly resinous aspect

Taste: Surprisingly sweet (but light) with a real biscuity character; in the middle, there is a Juicy Fruit element that joins with a slightly resinous hop flavor; the sweetness lingers on the palate, in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Quite different from the typical APA, with a little bit of an English character; I rather enjoyed it

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity

2.04/5  rDev -43.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

A: 12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Very clear medium amber. Virtually no head with aggressive pour what little there was dissapeared fast.

S: Some lightly pungent hops, faintly resembling an IPA. Diminished after a while.

T: Some resiny hop flavors, tasted a bit like chalk or a bitter medicine. Lingers unpleasantly.

M: Mild carbonation, watery, doesn't want to stick around.

O: I call cheaply and carelessly made hoppy beer like this hop water. It's like they say "let's just throw something together to compete in the $8-9 6 pack market, nobody knows what they're buying anyway". Couldn't finish it after smoked chicken was gone. Too bad, was pulling for a local beer.
