MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2004
Poured a dark gold, almost orange body. Very thin head that went AWOL after about 10 seconds. Aromas of citrus and hops in the mix. Tastes great, as there is a nice hops bitterness from finish to end. Crisp and clean, refreshing as well. A great IPA.

rajendra82 (960) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Pale clear golden color with a frothy white head fed by lively streamers of carbonation. The head is fairly short lived, and the beer fizzes out leaving a film of soapy bubbles on the surface. Floral hop aroma with a hint of spice and grassiness, bready malt is also apparent on the nose. Taste is dominantly bright grainy malt with only a touch of earthy hop bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel with apparent esters and a butterscotch like aftertaste. The body is much too delicate to hide the alcohol content, and as a result the beer ends up being a bit one dimensional.

This is a really decent IPA that is very clean and crisp. Hops were decent with a dry finish. A very solid IPA

Duke (117) - New York, USA - MAR 13, 2004
Bright yellow gold with a big foamy white head. Heavy hop spicy aroma and flavor to match. Very clean bitter dry finish.

SpeedwayJohnny (18) - Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2004 The best balanced micro-ale, IMO. There are certainly bolder, stronger ales to be had, but Liberty is almost perfect. The fruity, refreshing flavor balances the hop bitterness. Pours a deep golden hue, with foamy head and good retention. Taste reminds me of grapefruit. Body is just right, with a little of hop-oil to wash it down. If I could only have one micro-ale, this would be my choice.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - MAR 4, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2004 Bottle, 12oz. Almost crystal clear medium copper/tan color. Off white straw head that dies quickly. Minimal lace. Mildly malty aroma with a nice spiciness. Medium bodied, slightly ambery flavor. Fashoned after Bass IMO but would qualify as Bass’ bigger brother. There is a sweetness in the malty creamyness and a definate hop bitterness on the palate and finish. A very good pale ale but the price is a bit sharp @ $8.50/6. Just another $1 and I’m in Stone territory. 10/30/04 I’m getting Stone IPA for $6.49/6 now instead of the 22oz/$2.99

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2004
Dark golden color with no head. Nose is citrus hoppy. Flavor is heavily hopped with a lasting bitterness. Very low malt sweetness.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 3, 2004
UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 Gold with red hints. Smells of citrus, lavender and a bit of sulfur. Very hoppy in flavor, with white grapefruit and some white grape flavors. Not much malt flavor at all. Good carbonation helps to give it a nice refreshing quality. Hides the alcohol very well. Long finish. I would definitely buy this again.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Hazy gold. Good nose, sweet with caramel malts and a lingering citrus hoppiness. Bit thin on the flavor, definite bready malts predominate, bit of a bite and the end from hops, but lacks a middle end, drops off into something a bit too watery. Aftertaste is pleasant enough and lingers. Creamy as well.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2010 Bottled. Orange coloured with virtually no head. The aroma and flavour are both mildly spicy. An excellent moreish beer which belies its strength. Score 3.7
Subsequent rating scored 3.8. Score unchanged
