Amber color with a quickly disappearing head. Sour hoppy aroma...flat crispness. Mediocre...not horrible, but barely worth the time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nix. Tyvärr inte mycket indepensance här. Bara en anonym måttlig IPA med väldigt lite beska ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maybe it's not my type of beer, but it was hard to finish. Bitter after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Tap @ brewpub. Clear gold with a white head. Mildly amount of citrusy hops in the aroma with some caramel underneath. The flavor had a mild but stiff citrus note that grew into a moderate bitterness. The finish was fairly dry and not very refreshing. It was almost a tongue scraper from the bitterness.

Prcaus (159) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2007
Draft from Independence. Orangey-Amber appearance with light amounts of head. Light on hops, easily drinkable, but not as good as other IPA options.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUN 4, 2007
On tap at the brew pub. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a medium creamy/bubbly off white lacing head. Aroma of various citrus, pine, orange, caramel. Flavors of the same. Nice touch of hop bitterness with malty sweetness to balance. Slightly thin.

shrubber85 (7293) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Tap at brewery. Sweet orange/pinapple aroma - minimal hops. Medium amber color with small head. Slightly sweet orange-pineapple hops flavor. A mild easy drinking beer but probably closer to an APA - probaly wouldn’t please an IPA lover.

TheBeerLover (1025) - DC Metro Area, USA - APR 14, 2007
Sampled on draught at the brewpub in Philadelphia, PA. Pours to a bright, amber color, with a creamy, white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose is nice on this beer, with good flowery/grassy hop aromas, with hints of fruity esters. The palate is firm, with good biscuit, and stewed malt flavors, paired with some juicy, estery fruit flavor. This beer finishes with more good malt and fruit up front, then ends with a grassy hop bite that slightly lingers. Well done BIPA, with a good balance of malt, fruit, and hops. Tangy, and very drinkable, it has a nice hop bite, and is a makes for a nice pint to enjoy at the brewpub, or to have with a number of dishes on the menu.

On tap at Independence Brew Pub. Not so good it had more of a sweet flavor couldn’t pinpoint it. Not a typical IPA.
