COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Liberation IPA Is an Imperial IPA, which means that we took the malt and hop character of a regular IPA and kicked everything up a few notches. Liberation is a malt and hop powerhouse that drinks smooth and hides its strength. Drink this one fresh to preserve all the hoppy goodness.
Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Columbus
Malt: Pale, Crystal, Wheat

On tap @ Collective on Tap. Pours dark brownish amber with thin off white head. Aroma is thin, sweet caramel malt. Taste is clean medium caramel malt with tannic bitter hoppy finish. Somewhat harsh notes of oak, pine, and grass. Not bad, but I wouldn’t seek this out.

A nice one. Many times with this style -- particularly at high ABV like here -- the flavor is way too resin-forward. No such issues here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle:   Fiery amber, fairly clear, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Stale musty hop nose.   A little dank.   Cerealy up front, dank, sweaty, not all that hoppy.   Backside is very mealy, a bit biscuit, like honeycomb cereal on steroids.   Hides the 9.5% well, but isn’t bright nor all that fresh.   Finishes like it started, cereal like grains, a muted hoppiness, with a touch of heat.   Not a fan.

Cloudy dark amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is a great carbonation of soft and smooth but with good fine carbonation providing a nip. Lovely bittersweet pine hops, trace of mint. Underneath is good creamy malt with a touch of caramel. Finishes creamy soft with more piney hops, mostly sweet this time. Touch of fresh orange. Slight aniseed. Well joined up and super drinkable DIPA.

22oz bottle, pours a brown ambe. Bold aromas of grassy citrus and pine. Heavy flavors, fruity and orange, big bitterness. The flavors are disorderly and do not blend well together. Dry with a little sharp astringent finish.

Draft at the brewery. Semi cloudy yellow amber pour, with a white head. Citrus, sweet bread, caramel, herbal, bittering hops, sugar, and some alcohol. Not dry enough for my tastes and the body is heavy.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy amber with a small and sticky beige head leaving great lacing. Nose is aggresively hopped up grapefruit and tropical tones. Very grassy stuff. Heavy pine in the taste with a load of grapefruit. Quite tangy and bitter. Aggressive without being too muddled. Good stuff
