Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a crystal clear looking gold body supporting an off white head. The aroma offers up a big inviting mix of aromatics that include mango tropical fruit and malt sweetened grapefruit like citrus. Nice. The taste is pleasing with a firm level of grapefruit hop bitterness and what seems like a dash of malt sweetened mango tropical fruitiness here and there as well. There is a hop resin bitterness that helps dry this out a tad into the finish. This is a delicious robust IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours translucent amber with a slight white head. Strong citrus, nee cat pee, aroma. Med body. Flavor is very, very citrus, with something else that’s very fresh hop, and the caramel backbone is very, very back. This is arguably a hop monster. Finishing quite hoppy and bitter. Excellent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Texas Liquor: My bottle states 6.9% ABV. Appeared as golden blonde with some burnt orange tinting while a fluffy topping of head quickly retreated. Upon the pour, an instant olfaction of hops dominate suggesting lemon zest and grapefruit juice as well as other hints of citrus fruits. The drink is balanced well between the hops and malts even though there is a bitter bite of hops that bring out the flavors of citrus fruit. First beer I was able to taste by Noble Ale works and it made a good impression with a solid IPA offering.
