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.
