Poured a copper body with two finger head that died real slow but left a lace ring around glass. Smell is intensely citric with touches of piney and soapy hops and minor caramel malts. The beer is real hoppy, dry, citric/piney hops, dry cracker/bread base with hint of biscuit and some sweet caramel. Beer has great balance and smoothness making it real easy to drink (more yeasty than other IPAs). Even a touch of grape sweetness and finishes crisp thanks to lively carbonation.

500ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Nice and classic Nogne bottle art. Pours a clear light orange color forming a huge and bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings formed and left in the glass

S: Strong fruity and citrus notes. Grapefruit, pine and pineapple. Sweet pale grains. Flowery hops

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Very citrus notes. Grapefruit, pineapple, pine. In overall, a slightly sweet taste followed by a strong and pleasant hops bitterness. Well hidden 8.5% ABV

M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fruity, citrus and piny aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Another Nogne classic
