Amber hued with great clarity. A fingernail of white head rests on top. Light Brussels lacing. Sourdough aroma with a piney hop note. There's much more pronounced piney hop flavor. There is a coppery malt taste that is a minor player. The mouth has a hard water note as there is slight grittiness.

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.
