American ale yeast strain, slightly ester forward and loves to play with hops.
Independence is the strain for bringing some new character into your hop-driven beers. Higher in esters than Flagship, this yeast will give some fruit character that will take your hoppy beers to a new level. While it shines in pale ales and IPAs, Independence is a great all-around strain and will also work well in stouts and English ales.
