Bottle. Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bitter flavor with a moderate bitter finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Pours a light slightly hazy amber with a big off white head. Aroma is citrusy fruity hops. Flavor is grapefruit with a nice lasting bitterness and nice biscuity malt backbone. Not bad.

not balanced. Light malt. Light color. Hops are not up to an ipa. Needs refinement.

From a six pack of twelve ounce bottles purchased at "Kellerís IGA" - Okee-dokee, this is a good copy of Mid-California hops heavy IPA, but thereís no shame in that... I just wish my friend Greg Hardman (the capo de capo of Moerlein) wouldíve been a bit more individualistic with this brew. Still, itís tasty enough... but itís no O.T.R.!

UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Draft at The Lager House. Pours a clear gold with a white head that leaves a lot of lace spots. Aroma of leafy and grassy and citrusy hops, pale and caramel malts, sweat, and straw. Flavor of grapefruit and lemon citrus, grass, florals, and sweet malts. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter mouthfeel. Good IPA.

About $8 / sixer - Northern Liberties is not a bad IPA, but doesnít have the smoothness and polish of a top-notch IPA. Quite hoppy, as advertised, but a bit acerbic and medicinal on the tongue. Straight forward brew that is not bad.
