No-Li Brewhouse Born & Raised
No-Li Brewhouse Born & Raised is an American IPA, brewed with hops and barley sourced from within 300 miles of the brewery in Spokane, WA. This 7% ABV beer features Cascade, Chinook and Columbus hops.
I got an insanely dark pour for the style, more of a grayish Amber Ale color rather than a brighter golden IPA color. The aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of melon, mangos and papaya, and only increases as it warms. The taste is classic American IPA and is reminding me of some of the first IPA’s that I tried. (and helped me fall in love with craft beer!) A good bit of sweet caramel malt is highlighted by some orange citrus, mild pine and earth, and some bread crust. The finish is dry and aggressive on the bitterness.
Apart from the appearance this is just some quality classic American IPA goodness. Not sure how many states this is distributed in, but I can see myself drinking a few of these the next time I’m in Florida where I picked this up.
