3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Independence Pale Ale has a very thin, egg shell head, and a clear, golden orange appearance, with lots of streaming bubbles and thick lacing. The aroma gives a whiff of Orange Julius, and then mostly clean water. Taste is quite strong on bitter hops (the predominate flavor aspect), and there are underlying barley malt and pine notes. The mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and Independence Pale Ale finishes mostly dry, crisp, sharp, and good. Drinkability is moderate to high. Even though it’s rather one dimensional (hops), overall, this is a very good ale.

Draft 4/14/10 (Opal Divine’s Freehouse)-Pours a light amber with a full white head. Aroma of hops. Taste of the same with some citrus. This medium bodied pale was not too shabby.

Not a bad little Pale Ale. Nice overall flavor from a solid Austin brewing company.

On tap. Hazy gold pour. Hoppy aroma, not much else. Rather bland except for some bitterness and a metallic aftertaste.
If I was harsh, I’d say it tasted like someone added hops to a budweiser.

On tap at BD Riley’s in Austin, TX. I had this immediately after a nasty malt bomb porter, so it might have tasted better than it would have otherwise because of the contrast effect. Pours clear bright amber, tastes full of fruity hops, light and crisp, a great session pale ale.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden with an enormous, fluffy off-white head. Smells strong of floral and spicy hops with a mild sweet aroma. Taste is sweet at first, like caramel, and the some solid bitterness and back to sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Independence Brewing Independence Pale Ale finishes with a touch of sweet and a touch of bitter.

Pint at B. D. rileys in Austin. This is very much a classic American pale ale. It is a bit coppery in hue with pine and floral hop notes. Some balancing malt. This beer breaks no new ground but was a tasty start to the NYE festivities.
