Pours a bright golden yellow color with a white head that leaves tons of lacing. Nose is full of citrus, tropical fruits, and grass. Taste follows the nose. Loads of grapefruit, guava and mango with some grassy notes. Some pine as well. A very faint malt backbone. True west coast IPA right here. Mouthfeel is super dry and light. Very easy to drink and not too bitter. Overall another awesome offering from Noble. They continue to impress.

Bright citrus and tropical smell with some grassy notes. Well balanced alcohol, citrus, and bitter taste. Not terribly complex, but delicious in its simplicity. A favorite behind Russian River's Blind Pig.
