On tap at Noble before my first Angels game of the season. Pours a deep orange with small white head. Aroma is dank, tropical fruit. Pineapple for sure. Taste is a little more muted on the mango, pineapple and lemon but way more than most DIPA out there. Great resinous lingering bitter finish. Another great beer in the series.

Bottle. Glad this came back! Pours quite hazy orange, large pillowy white head, slow to dissipate and nice to lace, if a little clumpy. Aroma is not overpowering, lots of dankness, pine, passionfruit, cat pisssss. Flavor is light sweet and light plus bitter, dank and sticky. Medium body, creamy soft mouthfeel. Another solid entry to the Noble lineup.

22 oz bottle courtesy of an extra via trade. Awesome. Pours a glowing golden amber hue, gentle haziness, orange amber glow is strong with brighter white cakey head, small layer sits atop and laces ok. Good crown with lively carbonation streaming through the body. Aromas are potent and evident from first pour, bigger juicy fruit Citra hops shows tropical fruit, mango, and grapefruit and oranges. Some bready malt, straw, and cleaner malt bill. Florals, firmer bitterness with some green leafy hop spice. Bigger bursting fruity Citra life, pretty fresh and vibrant. Initial is mediuum bodied, big juicy tropical fruit, melon and mangos. Some bubblegum, grapefruit and florals. Lively juicy fruit flavors with bread, florals and soapy bitterness. The sweetness is fruity, hop derived while the malt base still remains fairly tame, cleaner and crisp comparitively for a DIPA. Dry, bitter backend shows some spiciness, florals and a bit of warmth. Nice hop character and presence. Fresh, flavorful, and fruity. Some bubblegum like flashes at times but the maltbase isnít the big brute that would ruin a beer like this. Well constructed, fresh exciting hop profile. Good stuff. Perhaps a touch thin overall, but that makes it pretty damn drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 Bottle: thanks, Jason! Bright, yet super-hazy sunshine, burnt-yellow body with a barely off-white head that fades in moments to nothing but a bubbly skin. Aroma supplies an amazing blast of Citra hops; lupulin oils, oranges, grapefruit, passion fruit, juicy pineapple, with hints of grass & green onion. You get a beautiful combo of citric & tropical notes with a great blend of raw hop greenery. Taste is very crisp, dripping with wet citrus peels, pineapple flesh, brash pines, mango, passion fruit, orange peel... Wow. Lots of hop oils abound with a sharp, grassy finish that leaves your mouth rather dry. Who the hell is Noble Ale Works? If they keep putting out beers of this quality... well, you better get to know them. Great DIPA for Citra hop lovers.

Bottle: The aroma consists of dark citrus, tangerine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, and a touch of pine. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze. It has a small white head that quickly fades to a soapy ring around the edges of the glass. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose citrus and tropical fruits. The finish has moderate grapefruit, lemon, dank notes, and pine. Itís light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, if you like Citra hops, youíll love this.

Poured from 22oz bottle. Pours dark golden in color with slightly hazy look and thick creamy white head. Aroma is a citra shit storm of awesomeness. Some mango, papaya and grapefruit in there too. Taste is a hop bomb, loads of dankness and a nice bitterness in the back end. Super tasty.
