22oz bottle of No-Li's 7%, 85 IBU, single IPA, Born & Raised. Beer pours surprisingly muddy, red in color with a brownish tinge. I get a floral and fruity aroma, rather than the classic pine / citrus I'd expect from a "native" PNW IPA. Flavor features bright, playful hops. Looks like a red ale, smells like a tropical hop IPA, and the label promises DIPA proportions, but what's actually delivered is a tasty and very reasonable single IPA.

Single bottle copped at Total Wine and More. I was pleasantly surprised by this latest offering. A good, well-rounded, solid IPA. A pretty decent stab at the style with a strong hop backbone balanced by mild malts. Piney, fruity flavor with hints of citrus and lemon zest. Good stuff.

22 oz. bottle:

Pours copper with an off-white head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of citrus (grapefruit, with some orange and some mango), pine, some black pepper.

The taste follows the nose - citrus and pine. Firm caramel sweetness balances it. Black pepper (and tea-like)spicing in the finish.

Smooth, medium body.

A classic example of a "more balanced" American IPA. Alcohol reasonably well-covered. Enjoyable.

Pours an Amber color with a light haze. Aroma is semi sweet malts with a little line hops. Flavor is piney with a little citrus. Pretty well balanced but finishes a little sweet. Feel is ok and overall this is a solid IPA but nothing special.

The Born & Raised IPA with 85 IBU and 7.0% is really great for the price. Its a perfect IPA when your a budget.
Look: this beer has a dark amber color, you can tell its a malty beer.
Smell: It's malty and piney smell.
Taste: dark malty with large piney taste. This beer is mostly a malt bomb with some hoppyness.
Feel: Like a malty 7.0% IPA
Overall: Like i said before its solid IPA for the price. $4.75 for a 22 ounce bottle.
Also i needed this beer for the bottle cap! The map needed it!! :)

No Li IPA
Nice sweet and tropical nose. Taste falls short of the nose, though. It taste like either there is excessive early kettle hops used or hops with huge alpha acid content used early in in the boil. Really big bashing hops pummel the taste buds. The hops are piney and resinous without being over sticky. Big general bitterness without much nuance or floral notes. There are traces of pineapple and some candy like sweetness in the finish. If you search deep enough there is a sweet, malt under-toned back bone. The malts are slightly bready and contain some caramel. The malts barely contain the bitterness, any more bitterness would be way overboard. When Pliny is only 2 hours away and you can get Enjoy By and Alpine down the street, you have develop high expectations. This beer falls short to living up to (relative) standards.

Appearance: An impressive pour, with a big bubble show that produces a three finger head; a clear amber liquid develops below; clumps of lacing hang around

Smell: Very malty, with pine and tea tones underneath

Taste: Caramel dominates from start to finish, with the tea and pine adding an earthy bitterness; through the middle, there is a hard candy sweetness that tastes of guava paste and cherry syrup; the finish is a blend of all the flavors that appear

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: At first, I was ready to dismiss this as another old school IPA that time has passed by; over time, I grew to enjoy it, thinking it more of a strong ale with an interesting blend of sweet flavors
