look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle in Sam Adams glass

rating this as a "session IPA" vs an IPA

A: Dark gold, thin white head, more lace than I expected
S: Citrus and pine, reminds me of a dry-hopped version of SNPA
T: Good American hop burst up front, followed by a subtle malty/caramel sweetness.
M: Somewhat thin, but not surprising given the "session IPA" category, lots of carbonation
O: One of the better session IPAs I have had, but I am not sure I would pick this up vs. SNPA. If they could keep it close to this but shave off another .5% alcohol, then this would be a winner. Glad I tried it, but I think I would prefer a dryhopped version of the PA vs. this even with the extra alcohol.

3.46/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a light haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a thick finger of frothy white foam. Not bad.

Smell: lightly sweet malt aroma with earthy, ever so slightly floral hops. Not bad, but not terribly exciting.

Taste: much like the aroma, although there's a little bit more graininess to the malt and a little bit of an astringency.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess for a session IPA.

Overall: this beer isn't bad, but it really doesn't excite me.

12-oz bottle into Belgian ale glass

A - 4-finger off-white head over a body of cloudy gold/amber, moderate amount of visible carbonation

S - citrus, light malts, fruity and floral notes, peppery spice

T - light malts, lemon, pepper, slight caramel sweetness, grassy/floral notes, balanced with a dry finish

M - chewy medium body, medium/high carbonation, fairly dry

O - Nooner is a nice brew in general, but many other IPAs on the market are more interesting.
