Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a cloudy golden with a white head. Spicy, biscuity aroma. Medium body, some sweet fruit and then a massive hop load that leaves a rather unrefined bitterness. 230213

fiulijn (17487) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle from Lee Discount Liquor, Las Vegasbr>Hazy amber color with medium sized creamy head. Nice aroma of hops, and quite strong caramel too, fruity, a bit earthy, light vanilla. The body is lean, not too thick; good caramel and toffee flavor, with light crystal malt presence; very strong hopping, mainly resiny, but also a bit fruity.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle:   Fiery amberish in color, hazy, moderate to large frothy white head, sticky lacing.   Citrusy and pithy aroma.   Similar tongue, bitter but not biting.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Strong pithy finish.   Not a unique example, but solid for the style.   Verty citrusy and pithy without being overly bitter.   Solid example.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle... Cloudy golden ale with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is an intermingling of tea biscuits and peppery, musky hops. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor profile is flat-out bitter - citrusy, rindy, musky bitterness. There is a rumor of acidity in the lengthy, bitter finish. Bottle generously shared by growler!

Ibrew2or3 (7777) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a clear copper body that supports an off white head of foam. The aroma gives up spicy hops and a little bit of citrus as well as a sense of floral like hops. The taste delivers straight up rich hop flavor and bitterness with grapefruit and tangelo with just a sliver of mango tropical fruitiness. It seems to get a little resiny into the finish which help dry it out a touch. This is tasting mighty fine for a IIPA.

Not my favorite of the IPA’s from Nobility but for an uber strong tasting, near barleywine, it is pretty good. Some muddle of hops in the middle and the cheeks do warm but on the edges this has a unique taste to it.
