22oz bottle dated 1/31/17 poured into a Trillium snifter. Crystal clear apple juice body with two fingers of tightly packed white head that left moderate lacing as it slowly receded to a thin layer on top of the beer that was continuously replenished by several lazy bubble streams. Aroma is sweet Citra hops heaven; stone fruit, citrus, and slight alcohol. Taste is a stone fruit citrus bomb with a alcohol notes. A perfect example of what Citra hops can do. Mouthfeel is my only complaint about this beer. It's juicy and sugary up front, but the finish is incredibly dry. While I had zero difficulty finishing the bottle, I was definitely thirsty afterwards because of the drying effect of the alcohol. I would absolutely buy this again.

Beautiful clarity, two inch white foam head on a clear amber pour
Heavy on the citra, smells of lemon/lime rind, sweet malt, slight grass, orange, peach
Wow, (initially underwhelming) juice bomb without any bite, the sweetness and full flavors come in towards the mid-back, tad too sweet for me
A bit thin and lacking on the mouthfeel
Worth seeking out, really great stuff!

Pours a clear and beautiful bright golden orange color with a thick and foamy white head that persists and laces well. Insane amount of bright citrus aroma. Hops, hops, and more hops! Appropriately named "showers." Flavor follows in all its citric glory, with just enough sweetness from the seemingly simple malt bill. Feel is crisp, dry, bitter... what more could you want from a Citra DIPA? Overall this is an outstanding DIPA with exceptional use of Citra hops. Cheers!

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.

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
