A Fresh bottle and a good nose,the bitterness definitely there, some grapefruit and orange rind. But no distinct hop flavour.Either my nose is stuffed more than I think or its their hopping(and malt).Bottle from OCBeerSociety, thanks RB. Not overall so drinkable

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass.

A- Clean golden yellow body, decent amounts of uniformed carbonation, little head and retention but a nice saturn ring hugging the sides of the glass.

S- The pale ale from noble I had before the IPA was a bit more hoppy, this seemed a tad dull, though there was some grassy pine and citrus notes. More on the bold side though.

T- Pine hop, tangerine and citrus zest, kinda floral finish with the rosemary. Interesting IPA. Nice complex and well balanced flavors.

MF- Surprisingly light-medium body with a medium sharp carbonation. Flavor resonates for a good minute or two.

O- Very solid and complex. I really enjoyed trying Noble, and look forward to so much more from them. Nice to see some local boys making some outstanding ales!

On tap at Toronado San Diego, $5. Yellow-orange color, fluffy head, lacing up the sides, typical west coast IPA appearance. Aroma is bitter hops, pine, west coast style. Flavor is super bitter, some citrus, again this was a typical west coast IPA. It wasn't anything overwhelming but I love this style of beer so this was enjoyable.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

LOOK: Crystal clear amber hue, superb looking head

SMELL: Parsley, mint, lemongrass, biscuity, nutty, bread crust, grassy, hemp

TASTE: Smooth, slightly crisp, doughy biscuits, bitter, soft resin, thick herbal hop, mandarin oranges, a bit chewy, dried grass, thyme, peachy esters, hint of alcoholic warmth, finish hoppy and dry

A solid example of the "West Coast" IPA that is not loaded with crazy amount of citric hops, a lot more depth within the hop profile here which certainly grabbed my attention. Great all around.
