look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dark copper color, extremely clear with plenty of bubbles streaming up from the middle of the glass. The head is thick, fluffy and white with a medium lacing.
Smell: grapefruit, citrus rind, pine, and honey.
Taste: Hoppy, mild malts, lemon zest, medium spiciness and a nice grapefruit aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, crisp and full of carbonation and just mildly dry.
Overall: This is a good IPA, full of flavor and the hops are great tasting and well balanced.

The only other IPA from Independence that I've had is the Stash, which is awesome. So I was hopeful for the Liberty Lunch (which was also the name of a great old live music joint in Austin that I used to go to in college) as well.

Pours an amber with golden hues when held up to the light. One-finger head with good lacing. The nose contains lots of pine and citrus. Big on grapefruit with notes of grass and miscellaneous tropical fruits. Really nice. The taste is very crisp with, again, a strong citrus presence, mostly lemon and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is clean and refreshing with faint hoppy finish. A lovely beer overall, and so much better than so many other "session" IPAs on the market. Cheers.
