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.

Dogbrick (7634) - 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.

Clear, light yet bright orange color with pillowy white head. Herbaceous and floral hops with a slight basement feel on the nose. Bold palate that has a lingering bitter finish. Slight hints of minerality throughout the palate as well.

Somewhat mild for an IPA, I like this one. A good amber color with minimal head, it goes down very smooth.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Bottle. Poured amber with an off-white head that left light lace. Aroma of citrus, caramel malts, and slight earthy. The flavor found citrus rind, and a background of earthiness and caramel. Medium body and mild bitterness.

rondphoto (1814) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pours a bright medium amber with a good looking head and full lace. There is a little malt here, but really the taste is overwhelmingly piney hops. The hops arenít so strong that they ruin everything, but if you donít want hops, you donít want this. Near the finish there is an interesting buzz on the tongue from carbonation followed by bittering that lasts long after the finish. An interesting brew, one that Iíll sample again.

Chudwick (1986) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - FEB 1, 2012
35cl bottle - pours pale copper with rich off-white foam and OK lacing. Nose is pine. Aroma is caramel and forest greens. metallic aftertaste. Taste hints at sweetness but that bitters is dominating. Medium body and sticky texture. "northern liberties" what a bittersweet concept when one lives in Kentucky.
