COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nooner IPA is light in body but big in hop aroma and flavor. This session IPA delivers a dose of citrusy and grapefruit hop character from the use of whole-cone American hops.

There is no better way to start a lazy afternoon than with a group of friends and a few beers. Nooner IPA is a session beer that’s light in body yet big in hop flavor. By using intense, whole-cone American hops in our Hop Torpedo we pack this small beer with a hefty hop punch.

Not my favorite from Sierra Nevada. From a bottle at Billy and Jennifers. Pours golden with a decent white head. Grass and grains on the nose. Same on taste- bit of hops. Easy to drink but somewhat boring. Light mouthfeel and refreshing in a summery way. Kept looking for more complexity/ flavour. Would rather drink less, and have the pale.

BOTTLE. Hazy orange pour with small fluffy white head.. Citrus bitter hops on the nose.. Solid hoppy bitterness upfront, some biscuit malt in the middle going back to citric bitterness to end.

12FL OZ ($15.99 12pack) pretty good IPA, really expected a high IBU coming from Sierra but its pretty easy going. Very drinkable and has a pretty fluffy head to it that has a good balance with the beer itself.

Pours copper with a HUGE foamy head. Aroma is pine with a hint of off citrus. Taste has some citrus, good bitter finish. Watery palate. Sessionable but there are better session beers.

12 oz. bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear pale golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had herbal, light citrusy hops, grass, pale malts, and dry toasted malts. Light bodied, with a dry, clean mouthfeel, decent session IPA but nothing stands out.

bottle-Friday Night Flights @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light amber with a white rim head and a star field of lace dots. Taste is light caramel malt that takes a direct hit from carbonation on the swallow, then settles into a finish that includes light floral hops. Heavy on the carbonation. Otherwise, the malt and hops are solid.
