3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was sold to me as a "Pliny clone" by the guy usually sells me Pliny. It’s a decent DIPA, but one thing is for sure... it’s not anywhere close to being a Pliny clone.
It has a nice nose, and you can smell some hops. It’s a little darker than Pliny. Taste-wise, it does offer some nice piney, citrus-like hop flavor at the front, but I would describe it as being slightly maltier than Pliny and the finish-- something which sets Pliny apart is the extremely short, clean finish-- the finish of Nobility is closer to Blind Pig than it is to Pliny.
As my glass warms up, the finish is getting longer, and I have this bitter aftertaste that lingers several minutes after the last sip.
These are $8 for a 22 oz bottle at my usual supplier, and I won’t be buying this again. At that price it needs to be *better* than Pliny to make a convert out of me. But it’s not.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
