This beer has gone from meh to fantastic over the last few months. Excellent, lightly bitter, with a cantaloupe and honeydew aroma and a firm malt backbone. Don't miss it, and get it fresh!

Wasn't expect too much from this beer but was pleasantly surprised. The aroma is earthy pine and a candied orange flavor. The nose isn't out of this world but is a great representation of a solid ipa. Taste is dominated by zest of lemons and grapefruit. It is very bitter, the kind that lingers. Mouthfeel is good and this beer is drinkable at just below 7%. This is a good year round offering from noble. I just wish the would rerelease tongue tickles double ipa.
