Noble Ale Works makes a lot of great beers, my favorite is still naught sauce but this IPA from them is great. The hops are great. Nice west coast style IPA.

Beer is not what it once was. Could be my pallet changing more then the beer. Originally had in a bottle in 2015. Pretty clean refreshing beer bought not that juicy. Disappointing mouthfeel.

Poured from 16oz into Snifter. Canned on June 13th 2017.

L: Hop haze honey gold, finger width head dissipates quickly leaving behind a thin ring.

S: As you would expect an entirely Citra hopped DIPA to be this smells entirely of citrus, orange, mango, grapefruit.

T: Again entirely citrus flavors as previously listed.

F: Medium body, average carbonation, slightly syrupy, dry finish.

O: This could be better. Not bad though. I don't get how this gets rated as high as it does to be honest, not complex, simple.

Heard good things. "Best by 9/30/15" Printed on the bottom right of the label.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange. About a finger off white head. Pretty rapid dissipation, with larger bubbles condensing. Not much in the way of retention or lacing. Looks kinda mediocre.

S: Hoppy. Slightly citric and tropical. Not much malt presence in the nose. Smells very "bright", if that makes any sense.

T: Lemon, lime and orange zest on the front end. Slightly savory onion/garlic. Tropical flavors on the mid palate. Again, not overly complex but fairly "bright". Tropical spiciness on the end. Bit of alcohol warmth after the taste.

M: Feels both light on the palate and undercarbonated.

O: I'm pretty dissapointed. Perhaps I got a bad batch.

Nose has a decent amount of malt and honey like sweetness and then dank hops. After a swirl it smells like you lit your nose up to a bucket full of fresh hops. Nice creamy mouth feel and low bitterness on the finish. This one is right at about a month old so it's fresh but the malt backbone is a little over done on this for me.
