3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a six pack of twelve ounce bottles purchased at "Keller’s IGA" - Okee-dokee, this is a good copy of Mid-California hops heavy IPA, but there’s no shame in that... I just wish my friend Greg Hardman (the capo de capo of Moerlein) would’ve been a bit more individualistic with this brew. Still, it’s tasty enough... but it’s no O.T.R.!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 doesn’t 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.
