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.

SpringsLicker (3196) - 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.

Draft at sausagefest 2011. Orange color, off white head. Drinkable. Lightly pine, some citrus. Refreshing.

Finhead (1260) - 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 (518) - 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

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2011
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.

Nephilium (1445) - Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2011
This starts with a touch of grassy hops. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. There’s a nice blast of pine and citrus to start this beer off, a bit of sweetness, then a decent biter finish. Slightly slick mouthfeel, and an easy drinking IPA. It’s a solid one, but there are better ones out there.

nearbeer (3936) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2011 12 oz bottle. Clear copper with a little ring of creamy bubbles and nice lace. Earthy pine, cereal, and citrus nose. Flavor is similar, but has some soap and plastique; a slightly odd bitterness. Light medium body is oily and soft, a bit too frothy, but pretty well-balanced.

Suttree (5318) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2011
Clear orangey copper, nice white head. Nice aroma - grapefruit, fresh mown grass or hay. Some biscuity notes, too. Clean and crisp, and a little lighter bodied. Some grassy, lightly floral hop notes and a caramelly, toasty finish. Simple, but tasty.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle from Midtown. Pours translucent amber with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet breads, and fruity ale esters. Medium bodied with average carbonation, but texture feels a little over filtered. Flavor caramel malt and piney hops. Finish has a bitter citrusy bite. Soapy astringency lingers on the palate. Very "budget" tasting for an IPA
