16 oz can from Tavour. Very pale golden body, initial foamy head, fades to skin. Very light aroma, citrus peel. Not getting any dank notes as mentioned in other ratings. More citrus in the taste, sweet, then bitter. Pretty subdued for a DIPA.

Clear golden yellow brew with average foam in the Tripel Karmeliet tulip. Loads of aromatics. Sweet and tangy lemon-lime is the flavor from start to finish. Hard to find fault unless you were hoping for something harder to drink. Even the bitterness comes along just as the sugar peaks in the brain.

I don't taste the mango as much as some candied grapefruit peel for the finish. Overall, it's a very good DIPA, and so much better than about anything I"ve had in the hazy New England style brews we can't get away from. From the 16 oz can. I think this and the Mosaic are the most expensive IPA four-packs I've ever seen.

16oz can served in a pint glass. I don't see a date. Gift from @mr-jj.

Pours clear golden with a smallish head. Smell is pretty straightforward citra hops -- fresh, clean, and citrusy.

Taste is surprisingly bitter -- still lots of citrus flavor, lots of citrus zest bitterness comes through. It's nice and very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp and dry. Overall, very good beer.

Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip. Pours a golden orange hazy body with a big frothy white head that reduces to leave spotty lacing and a layer of retention.

On the nose is heavy citrus and zesty rind, grapefruit, raw hops and a sweet malt backbone. On the tongue are citra dominated hop notes, grapefruit and lightly zesty peppery notes, sitting on a semi-sweet malt backbone. Crushable body, medium carb and very drinkable for 8.8%.

16 oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a darker golden color. Not very bright in appearance. White head that dissipates and leaves sticky lacing to the glass. Aroma is insane. Citra all up in my face....citrus, mango, grapefruit....smells amazing. Taste follows the nose. Tons of citrus....mango and subtle grapefruit notes. The citra in this beer really pops. Feel is medium bodied and sticky/resinous. Really coating and leaves behind wonderful flavors of orange and grapefruit. Overall, this is a tremendous beer. Really love the showcase of Citra here. Noble did a great job with this one.
