COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our highly hopped, high-altitude rendition of the classic India Pale Ale redefined as Independence Pass Ale. Like the high mountain pass, this copiously hopped brew is not to be trifled with. Our IPA marries generous amounts of Columbus, Cascade and Simcoe hops - the floral and citrous flavors are perfectly balanced by our secret malt recipe. Don’t pass this one up!

wheldfond18 (12) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 13, 2017
Enjoyed a pint while at the Aspen Brewery Company. Less bold IPA, simpler favor profile. Good beer for a post ski brew to recharge the batteries before a night out in Aspen.

RedSox2004 (1970) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 18, 2017
On tap at the Aspen brewery. Hazy copper color with a generous two-finger head and decent lace. Pine aromas with a hints of caramel and citrus. Bright hoppy notes above a substantial caramel malt backbone and sharp citrus. Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp, lightly bitter finish.

2.6
ALLOVATE (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2017
Hazy, pastel orange body with a huge, pluming white crown that holds and laces well. Phenolic, plastic, Band-aid™, mace and pine-needle aroma with a hit of fermenting fell fruit and dusty soil - slightly mineral-like and alkaline. On the palate it is rough and hardlly integrated but drinks with ease. Bitter, herbaceous hops; low esters, again like fermenting fruit but with a lingering taste of vitamin ’C’ tablet. Soapy, alkaline feel. Phenols and a grapeskin puckering astringency. Burnt rubber, apricot. Lasting phenolic kick. Puffed rice and toasted malt. A big lot of what I don’t want in an IPA. Alcohol amazingly well hidden. Just weird!! (12fl.Oz can, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

3.4
r464 (2370) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2017
Nicely balanced. A good dose of citrus and bready malt. Slightly bitter and quite hoppy as the finish comes on. Smooth and full.

3.5
Dredd (972) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2017
Nice sweet aroma with light pine and citrus notes. Good light malt notes with a affirmative but not too grippy bitter finish. Quite sessionable for a 7% beer.
