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

Clear golden color. White head. On tap. Side by side with juice box and this is crap compared to it.

Bitter and sticky. Resiny. Where is the citra? Grassy and floral.

Not sure how or why this one is rated so high. Tough to drink a lot.
