Half growler fill. Enjoyed immediately. Nice clover honey notes in this one without being overly malty.

Received this as a gift growler (the best kind) and it was labeled "Hop Ticket #4 Noble IPA" so I can only assume this is the correct beer (even though it is not labeled as #4.

Hazy golden brown in color with a nonexistant head. Thin aroma of grass, malt, and dirt. Flavors are earthy, but to a salty extent. Malt flavors are not adequately kept in check by hops, and which leads to an overall middling beer. Mouthfeel is a bit chewy and neutral, with none of the bitter feels one assocoates with an IPA. Overall its a miss, but only because there are so many great IPAs out there to try instead.

Virtually zero hop bitterness for a supposed ipa....honestly tasted like a mildly hopped pale ale

On draft, pours a clear straw yellow with a thin white head, good carbonation, lots of bubbles.

The nose is very herbal and earthy, a little wet carpet. It smells like a wet dog and that is a very hard smell to get past once its in your head. The flavor is way different, the noble hops are actually really well balanced with the malt, a little caramel sweetness, citrus and lemon.

The smell really hurts this beer for me, but the flavor is good.

Pours a light golden color with a white head. Aroma is full of pungent noble hops, very herbal and a bit stanky.

The taste is hoppy and bitter, slight buttery toffee, bread and pine. Solid bitter and earthy herbal notes. Pretty good flavors, it tastes like a pilsner though.

Light bodied, well rounded brew. Overall, interesting, but the hops really lend one to think euro lager, not American IPA.

3.85/5  rDev +4.1%

A - Pours medium gold with little to no head retention and leaves a very thin white ring of lacing. Carbonation...none.

S - Light crackery malt, floral, grassy, light lemons and earth.

T - Starts bitter up front with lemons, pine, floral, and some honey malt on the back end with some lemon citrus tang at the very end.

M - Medium body, semi-dry finish, dry in the middle of the tongue and zesty on the side which makes the mouth salivate. Has some earthy spicy character as well.

O - The honey aspect of this beer reminds me more of an uber hopped pilsner.

Decent Session IPA. Light on the hops for an IPA, but a nice flavor and feel.

a well made and tasty, but largely unremarkable ipa from victory here. i think it does only a so so job of highlighting the grassy zesty features of the noble region hops, and may have been caught in a catch22 of tradition and distinction, where tradition calls for copious early kettle action, while a better showcase of these hops would ignore their buttering prowess and add them late for a more flavorful interpretation of their uniqueness. this beer is lost in the middle i think, too bitter to really let the hops stand out as special, but not traditional enough to fit with the classic ales of the region. the result is a highly drinkable, yet generic tasting ipa. pale in color, frothy and patient looking, smelling and tasting only faintly like fresh noble hop varietals over its bitterness, and with a light and soft mouthfeel. good beer, cool project from victory, but this one may not have reached its full theoretical value...
