12 oz can served cold into a pint glass.

Independence Pass has a golden amber color with a slightly hazy appearance. It has thick head at first but settles quickly to a thin layer with spotty lace.

Aroma is hoppy and fresh with lots of citrus fruit.

Flavor is bold but balanced with more of that great hop character. Malt adds some sweetness up front but there is some good hop bitterness to balance it out.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated.

Overall an underrated IPA and certainly one worth trying.

12oz can from a sixer that cost $8.99. Appearance was terrible, cloudy orange with chunks floating off the bottom. Aroma was sort of grainy with mild hop hints. Flavor was grainy malts and then some fruitiness from the hops. Overall a disappointment and I wonder if it was old?

2.28/5  rDev -42.1%

12 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with some floaties. It has a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet bready malts with some piney, grassy, slightly metallic hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little tropical fruit and a fairly sweet sugary finish and a little bitterness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, overly sweet and bready. More English IPA than American. Needs more hops.
