COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Youíve made a discovery--a well-hopped IPA inspired by the revolutionaries of Cincinnatiís Northern Liberties. North of Liberty St. and beyond the reach of municipal law, the area was known for tolerance of beliefs and behaviors, which were shunned in Cincinnati proper prior to 1849. Moerlein Northern Liberties draws inspiration from these free-spirits with this hoppy, well-balanced, copper IPA in pursuit of Life, Liberty, and Hoppiness.

LilBeerDoctor (3506) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt, tropical fruits. Flavor of tropical fruits, floral hops, and light bready malt in the finish. Some bitterness in the finish too. A fruity IPA, reminds me of the Mikkeller hop series. 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)

Denverdiv (30) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Pours amber with copper tint. Minimal head. Little to no hop bite, incorrect pallet for an IPA, tastes more like a lager with grass notes. -To IPA is to be.

Patrickctenchi (3969) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Pours orange-amber with a steady, light tan head. Aroma of sweet orange malt. Taste is malty, fruited, grass/herb hop bittering...a little bread. Slightly bland in the hop department, but itís ok.

Bottle, Tap: this is a great beer. I think that itís my favorite offering by Moerlien. Itís malty, with a great grapefruity citrusy pine hop presence that just sits right on top. Good Stuff.

Bottle pour into pint. Hazy amber color. Nose of breach fruit. Taste initial mild sweetness followed by astringent bitterness. Not much aromatic hop. Long lasting bitter aftertaste.

Pint at Flipside at Easton. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Malty nose with grassy and earthy hop notes. Malty flavor with grassy hops and an earthy finish with a splash of grapefruit.

fauxpunker (76) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Very crisp hoppy scent. Nice golden color and a bit cloudy. Very bitter, but not unpleasant. Tastes even a little citrus. More of a standalone beer rather than one for drinking with food. Probably not for someone just beginning to develop a taste for beer. Though Iím not much of an IPA fan, but this isnít bad.

Draft to pint. Looks alright; dark for an IPA though. Smells and tastes malty and hoppy, but mildly; more like a hoppy Amber. Average on the palate. Meh.

Bottle pour into shaker. Dark, hazy amber. Not real hoppy, but has a nice malt touch; bitter aftertaste. Overall a nice IPA, but I didnt take away anything to distinguish if from the many other nice IPAs.
