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.

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.

This is a good beer but just an average IPA. Almost taste a hint of chocolate and not a fan. Will drink again tho

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.

blackflag321 (477) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2012
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.

clubber (4) - Milford, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2012 does not count
The Cincy version of Bellís two Heated Ale. It is a bouquet of floral citrus and grapefruit aroma and flavor. It has a nice malt backbone for balance as well. A fine beer and a worthy entry into the moerlein family.

Sheerbrewing (117) - Athens-Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Aroma- very hop focused that is citrus and fruity american hop not very much malt comes through at all. Appearance- pours a clear medium amber, kind of like a reddish gold, with a white foamy head and lots of nice Flavor-Hops, american hops, citrusy like the aroma but the malt comes through once the bitterness coats the mouth. Balanced pretty well but definitely hop heavy Mouthfeel- smooth with lots of little bubbles rushing over the tongue, feel like there is a liitle yeast ester or astringency, may be the hops still. Not a huge body but good for the style overall impression- I like this drinkable IPA, and Iím trying not to be biased about local ohio craft brew but I do like this although it is not even close to my favorite for this style, the hop mixture left me wanting
