Notes / Commercial Description:
Liberty IPA is our reimagining of craft-brew classic Liberty Ale, envisioned through the lens of today's IPAs. We first brewed Liberty Ale in 1975, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Paul Revere's midnight ride. This revolutionary forerunner of the modern IPA introduced America to the Cascade hop and the nearly lost art of dry-hopping. Like it's processor, Liberty IPA is made with two-row pale malt and Cascade hops. It is the combination of Cascade with new hop varieties - in both brewhouse and cellar - that creates the mouthwatering complex and robust aromas of pine and citrus in this crisp, American-style IPA. The label, like Liberty Ale's, features a bald eagle, whose symbolism runs deep for all Americans including Native Americans. "A very great vision is needed," thought Crazy Horse, and the one "who has it must follow it as the eagle seeks the deepest blue of the sky."

Poured from tap into shaker, 1 finger cream colored head, good retention and lacing. Slightly hazy golden in the glass. Simple citrus and pine on the nose. Sweet malt on the front with citrus and pine following good solid bitterness with a lingering pineapple. Nice mouthfeel, good solid drinking IPA.

Bought a single bottle $1.79 Don Quijote
Floral hop smell
Hazy golden orange color
Medium-light mouthfeel
Medium carbonation
Bitter, slightly sour taste
Overall nothing impressive about it. Glad I only bought a single of it. Lots of better beers at a lower price. Would not buy again.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into chilled glass mug. Colour is amber/copper with a off white head and some sticky lacing. Smells of mild hops and a little biscuity malt. Taste of mild hops and a malt backbone with a hint of citrus. Good mouthfeel. Nothing overpowering. Prost!

From Elcervecero. In Teku glass. Playing Planet of Mubu. Delicious and fresh caramel sweetness, with just the adequate level of strong bitterness but without much hoppyness. May not be fresh? Still great and repeatable.

This pours a light tan gold color with a great foam cap and a big bouquet. Very green in aroma, fresh and vibrant. I get a lot of pine aroma and some hints of lemon pledge on the back. A touch of biscuit malt with a thin finish. A mixed bag to be honest.
