One of the better IPA’s. Still a little light and harsh for my tastes.

Good all around, but not as hoppy as the better NW IPA’s that can be found now.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2003 This beer makes me proud to be an American. Let's face it... 'American Beer' is a phrase like 'American Cheese'. ;) But this is a world class pale ale. The aroma is spicy and sweet with the hops ready to greet you. There are lots of hops but more complexity than the usual pine-sol tase of many beers that attempt this style. Liberty pulls of ultra hoppiness without that being the only good attribute. The head is fluffy and beautiful, and the finish is long and like the afterglow from great sex. ;) A top pick for me. I must say with patriotic verve that this should be classified an AMERICAN pale not an India... ;)

This beer is all about the cascade hops. Ok appearance, slight to medium head with some cloudiness, but a nice golden/copper color. Good floral and citrus aroma. When I was drinking this i though of an american pale ale, rather than an IPA. Not enough bittering hops to make it a great IPA. Still great all around beer and goes down smooth.

The hops make it a little excessively floral, but very smooth and excellent appearance.

Very dry and bitter, with a lot of hops. Nice for hot days when you want something to wet down with.
