Originally brewed in 1975 to commemorate Paul Revere's ride, this brew is a heavily hopped ale (Cascade hops) with a copper color and a hoppy nose.

Golden, light carbonation, white foamy head. A bit whitebread malt, fruit, spices and with a nice peppery shot of hops (lime,pine,grass). Medium bodied and more elegantly balanced than many of the ultra-hoppy IPAs out there.

Good old Liberty Ale. Every time I open one of these the splendid hoppy aroma reminds me of the first time I had wort boiling on the stove. Pours a medium amber color, not much head and with a slight haze to it that I don't remember seeing the last time. It has the tasty caramel maltiness of the Steam beer, but the hops are the main event here. Finishes on the bitter side. I don't drink this ale as much as I used to, but now and then it is just perfect. I've kept bottles of this refrigerated for several months and it seems to hold up very well. Gotta love those hops!

This is the everyman's everyday IPA. Not too extreme to drive away open minded beer drinkers. This beer pours up a massive white head. Light golden in hue, the beer smells of floral hops. The flavor backs up the aroma. Moderate hops. A good beer.

Bottle: deep golden color with a white head. The aroma is terrific - very fruity. Now maybe the bottle I had (purchased as a single) had been there a while and was stale, but it just did not knock me out as I expected. Maybe I just prefer my IPA's from a bit further up the coast.

Amber color, heavenly hops. Citrus tastes but that just seem to compliment those wonderful hops and keep you wanting more. Very good pale ale...

Dark amber color, some head and okay lacing, medium-bodied. Citrus, floral, bittersweet chocolate are aromas I detected. The taste has a grapefruit like tartness countered by a tactile sweetness. Well balanced, nice lingering aftertaste that not bitter. Top notch IPA!

Nice deep amber color with small head even with a heavy pour. Lacing is minimal but consistent to the finish. This is a nice rich IPA and seems a little heavier than others. Cascade hops obvious from the get-go and a great malt/hop balance. I found this full bodied for it's style.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Batch 4L7(7-31-04).Pours out a solid orange/ golden w/a nice head that quickly dissipates into some decent lacing..The taste of this beer is wonderful.This one is a bit more quafable than most IPAs IMO.Can't stop buying regardless of price.The aroma is a nice amount of englishy malts met with a decent amount of fresh Cascade hops.This is one finely tuned very enjoable IPA(more of the English nature)I personally think Stone's IPA reminds me of a heavier hopped version of this great ale.Alot of times people probly end up with old bottles, because of the price and a tricky bottle dating scheme.Just know the first number represents the last number of the year,middle letter represents the month(Y=May,U=June, L=July, and G=August, the other months represent themselves by the first letter,it's whack but I get it now...An american classic.
