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.

I have had this on two separate occasions. The first instance I drank it while watching Night of the Living Dead and felt the film was "Hard to Follow." I drank the beer over an hour or so, enjoying every sip. The beer changed flavors half way through for me. I really like this IPA. This is my go to IPA.
