4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a lovely thick off-white foamy textured head with plenty of lace. Color is a clear amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is dominated by hops but with a hint of skunk. Great hoppy flavor. Good mouth perhaps a tad thin. Very good beer overall and I wish I had another.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Letís start off by saying this... Nooner is not a bad Session IPA. It looks fantastic and has a smooth, clean mouthfeel. Unfortunately, the aroma and taste are not what Iíve come to expect from Sierra Nevada. Aroma is light but it is pleasant. Biscuit-like malt, caramel, and some lemon. Taste is refreshing but surprisingly unbalanced. The hops are understated and the malt character is a bit too sweet for my taste. I never thought I would say that about Sierra Nevada but there it is. Sadly, Nooner isnít a beer that Iíll return to in the future. Thatís too bad because Sierra Nevada could use a good, hoppy session ale in their inventory.

Pours blond with medium off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, fruits (tropical). Taste is of citrus, pine, fruits, bitterness. Palate: Light-medium carbonation. Overall: Very nice session beer. Good balance. I wish there was a beer like this available in my hood.

T- Citrus, bitter, dry, piney.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, dry finish.
O- This one was beautiful on the aroma, however that certainly didnít translate over to the palate. The taste was a weird dry bitterness and just felt really unbalanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12 oz). Bottle on 05-05-2014. Courtesy of Minderbinder, thanks! Hazy bright golden with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of grapefruits, malt and a kind of spiciness that usually comes from the rye. Taste is of grapefruits, citrus, malt and light spiciness. Moderate bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. The alcohol is perceiptible, which is weird for a 4,8% abv beer. Lack of balance. Drinkable, not as much as what you could expect from a Session IPA.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Hazy gold with a nice fluffy white head.
Soft hoppy nose, citrus and floral.
Resinous flavors, light malt, high bitterness, citrus peel.
Dry, effervescent, easy to drink though a bit too bitter and carbonated.

Not much of a Session beer. This one has 4.8% alcohol. Itís Torpedo IPAS Light. It actually tastes pretty good. Like nothing Iíve had before.

At a tasting, many thanks DSG, small bubbly head, a little hazy light orange, colour, flowery fruity aroma with some hay, flavour of rose petals and tropical fruits, medium and noticable though not overpowering bitterness. Nice and easy.

Okay IPA. Not too strong but still has a good flavor. Not much aroma though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a decent, well balanced IPA that does work well as a session beer (something to be said about living up to your billing). Nice hops, a little citrus, but not overpowering in either flavor or alcohol. Tasty and straightforward.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Floral citrus hop aroma with some piney and some almost earth aromas, or light malt aroma. Flavor is descent, but almost has a cheap ish malt flavor that overpowers some of the hops. May just be the balance of malt and hops, but that is the impression I get from the flavors. Not fully balanced. Descent for a session ipa, but a step or two below stone go to and the top session IPAs.
