No-Li Born & Raised

CIMG7907

This is my first beer from No Li. They’ve recently been getting a lot of buzz, mostly due to their marketing campaign. I must say, their bottles are eye-grabbing, and that can’t be a bad thing for Washington state. They don’t say what malts are in here, but do say it was brewed with Cascade, Columbus, and Chinook hops.

Stats:
American India Pale Ale. 7.0% ABV. Washington.

Fairly dark on the IPA color scale. Can’t see through this one. Great head on here.

It’s got a nice nose. Lots of hops, with a mostly piney aroma. Fairly earthy and grainy on there, too. Smells like a Washington IPA should.

Wow, this has some body. Medium-full with medium-low carbonation.

Piney, earthy, with a nice bit of grapefruit and hint of orange. Grainy middle and finish. Pretty legit bitterness. Grapefruit sticks onto your palate for days.

When I think of a Washington IPA, this is what I have in mind. If this is the kind of beer this brewery is producing, then I cannot wait to taste more. 91 points.
