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.

Pours a hazy pale amber with a decent white head. Aroma is citrus. didn’t expect much of a hop presence from Moerlein, but I was pleasantly surprised. Although not enough to please a real hophead, this IPA has a real good citrus and pine character to it with moderate bitterness. Sweet toasted malt also comes through along with a little maple syrup. Very good effort!

A cloudy orange appearance with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus like oranges. The flavor is tame and malty not very good. None of the bite I expect in an IPA. Easy drinking and boring. I’m not a fan of this at all.

12oz bottle from Chucks poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with about 1 finger of frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is medium-light bitter and very lightly sweet. Taste of light citrus and heavy pine. Medium bodied with an oily and slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, pretty good. I would drink it again.

I like it- thanks Jungle Jim’s. Not a Stone or a Torpedo or a Two hearted but I like it quite a bit.

SpringsLicker (3452) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2011
The pour is a slightly hazy gold with a sticky off-white head. Juicy sweet malt aroma is played off by the fresh citrusy hop aromas. The flavor is towards the bitter side, but not overly so. Nice long dry hop finish. Medium body.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Looks light, fading yellow and a sloppy head. Light hops and grapefruit, nothing special. Tasted great, but again nothing special except for a refreshing lingering bitterness.

Finhead (1620) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2011
A dark gold pour with an off-white head. The aroma is mostly grassy hops. The medium body has an oily texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter from start to finish.

Drjohnrock (690) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Draft at Arnold’s on May 19, 2011. Moderate to dark ambe color, small off white head, moderate piney nose, body a little thinner than expected, good bittersweet flavor with the hops really coming through after somewhat watery initial mouthful. Not spectacular, but overall a solid IPA

Drank this while the power was out so I couldnt see it very well. Clear gold best I could tell. Aroma of fruit, pine, tropical citrus. Taste is mostly malt heavy, mild bitter finish.
