You’ve made a discovery--a well-hopped IPA inspired by the revolutionaries of Cincinnati’s 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.

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 I’m not much of an IPA fan, but this isn’t 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.

The Cincy version of Bell’s 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.

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 I’m 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

Taste of Cincinnati. Good and smooth, yet crisp, taste. Refreshing for an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8983) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2012
This brew is a slightly cloudy amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of fruit and sweet malt in the background. The finish is short and hoppy. Slightly above average overall.

On tap at the lager house. Hazy orange color with a thin sticky off white head. Grassy hop nose. Flavor of bitter orange, grapefruit rind, and grass. Some bready malts but mostly hops. Not your usually pnw ipa, but still pretty tastey.
