If you don’t think you like IPAs but want to give one a go, I suggest starting with Aspen Brewing Company’s Independence Pass Ale.
Coming in with 62 IBUs this beer isn’t overly hoppy and only 7% alcohol this IPA is relatively easy drinking. Even our friend Dani, who normally doesn’t like IPAs, likes this one.
The hops are more citrusy than floral and we all enjoyed that. Check out the video for our pairing recommendations, including peanut butter and jelly, rafting and camp fires. You seriously can’t go wrong.
This was our second time reviewing this beer. The first was in a snow storm after a day of fly fishing. The beer was great then as well, but the focus of the camera was not.
Give the Independence Pass Ale a try, whether you’re a hardcore beer snob or brand new to IPAs. I guarantee you’ll like it either way.
