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.

p- dark orange
n- med-bold sweet juicy citrus hops; mandarin orange; light vanilla; very inviting
t- follows nose; bursting with citrus flavor, as anticipated; orange, grapefruit, tangerine; mod bitterness in the fin; semi-sweet bready malt supports
mf- med-bodied with med-high carb; clean and crisp
o- just as expected... Love it! packed full of flavor and so drinkable; I'm becoming more and more convinced that these guys do not make a bad ipa/dipa

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.

Lots of Citra in the aroma but overall the beer was a little bitter and not as good as other DIPA's on the market. Not a bad beer by any means, but I have had much better

9/29/2016 bottle drank in a chalice on 10/11/2016

L-solid white head, clean with nice clarity, golden

S-clean and smooth citrus. pretty pungent and bold. not complex but the grapefruit, pine, grass, and orange come through nicely.

T-follows the scent

F- super drinkable. I had to double and triple check that this was 8.8%. Went down very fast and easy. Not overly juicy like the new haze-bombs, but amazingly crushable. really nice

O-a very nice showcase of the citra hop and a great west coast IPA. Certainly unique when compared to the new age hazy style IPAs, but this classic old school (correct now I think) aggressively hopped IPA is fanastic. First beer from Noble, but won't be my last. Reminds me of how ZD used to taste super fresh
