No-Li Big Juicy
Touchdown #2 Bengals 2016 season. Jeremy Hill. Celebrating each touchdown with a new rate. 12 oz can poured. A strange copper color with an odd greyish tint. I checked in all light forms. For a minute I was concerned, but its good. Fresh can, citrus bitter aroma. Flavor is a citrus juicy fruit hop, with a strong malt backbone. Smooth, cool, and refreshing. The type of beer I would take hiking, or you know, watch football with.

Very nice ... Piney, resin aroma with a solid malt backbone, resin hop flavor and a good, not over powering bite to the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No-Li Oyster Stout
Bottle. Mine came over-carbonated, to the point that over half the pour was head. Nose has some roasting to it, along with some subtle brininess. Not a huge amount of taste, though you do get some dry roasting. Very underwhelming to me.

No-Li Brass Monkey
Rating #1915 - 2015.09.24 - #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 14 - Bottleshare - Pours a bubbly ruby colour with a decent off white head that fades rapidly. Aroma is caramel malt, orange rind, mild grapefruit, mild pine. Palate is bold, medium-high alcohol warmth, medium carbonation - Alcohol present on the tongue, adds bitterness to the Cascade vibe of the brew. A booze-forward DIPAesque concoction that struggles with identity.

Silky smooth and a sneaky 8%. Medium carbonation and I love how they use the ginger to keep it dry. Chestnut and oak notes. A simple yet extremely effective effort.

No-Li Born & Raised IPA
Sampled the last of the 4-pack on National IPA Day. This grew on me with each sample. Bought on clearance for about a buck each, then sat around for a few months, so the aroma and flavor may be weighed down a bit. Still has that bold hoppy west coast flavor. Heavier on the malt...maybe some rye added too for extra sweetness. A hazy dark mahogany appearance. Piney aroma. Kind of forgettable, yet still a solid brew.

I have a weakness for coffee beers, especially stouts. This smells a bit like iced coffee, with a hint of toast. Taste is coffee, some chocolate, and a dry, piney finish. Tasty.

On tap. Pours a hazy copper with a thin, off-white head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet, pungent aroma of grapefruit, caramel malt and pine. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, tropical fruit, caramel malt, pine and grass with a dry, bitter, hop resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Nice, very aggressive.

No-Li Copper Donkey
Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Hazy amber color with compact head. The aroma is mild, but the flavor is more potent; the body is lean, would think more in the 7% range, quite food caramel flavor, with a light spicy, peppery note from the ginger, a hint of chocolate, and a light minty touch in the final.
Wisely made, very nice winter warmer.

Bottle. Pours a clear red copper with a one finger beige head and minimal lacing. Smells of rust, pine, fruit. Taste is of black coffee and is malt heavy. Bitterness hits hard and lasts. Aftertaste is the best part of this one, when the actual flavors show through best.

Bottle from Costco. Pours a copper red color with average head. Not sure if this is a mental trick but tastes more like a red ale than a imperial double IPA. Caramel, spices a slight bit of hotness on the back end. It's fine but not outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

COMES ON STRONG WITH LITTLE BEHIND IT. better to come in easy and give you something to think about. decent hoppy aroma. dry and a little thin in body. some hop mostly citrus in the taste. this could be a nice base and then one might get a little creative and add dimension to a beer like this and.......imagine what could happen! seeing as one gets some good blonde malt in there.

Bright clear gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and decent fine carbonation. Soft pale malts, mildly sweet. Fairly spicy mid. Touches of dried fruit and citric peel. Smooth semi dry spicy finish. What is this beer supposed to be? Fine.
