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 thatís 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.

Dapierce17 (88) - Pasco, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pours golden orange with frothy off white head. Nice aroma of pine and a crispness. Initial bitterness that leads into a slightly malty balanced with pine hop flavor. Not a ton of flavor. Would classify it as a bitter pale ale rather than a session IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

R4N5H (54) - SINGAPORE - AUG 23, 2014
GBBF 2014 on 13-Aug. Cask. Golden amber but with no head at all. Flat tasting beer, with little complexity. Light malts and hops. Not too impressive, seemed not to have travelled well.

pinkzambia (1458) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle: Having this nooner at midnight. Hope this is allowed. Cloudy but clear gold with a all off white head. Light citrusy aroma. The flavor is citrusy hops but not grapefruit or juniper. There is even a little skunk in it as well. Seems just a bit hoppier than the pale ale. Would I drink this again? Yes. Will I soon? Probably not.

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
[Bottle {12oz)] Pours a deep gold with a large lasting fluffy off-white head. Some lacing. Citrusy, fruity, floral hop aroma with some grain and biscuity malt in the background. Flavour of floral hops and biscuity malt, citrus and a bit of spice. Moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. A gateway IPA, just good.

PhillyBeer2112 (2522) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Well its a good try but Iím not sure if I can endorse it fully. Nice golden color, large fluffy head, strong piney hop nose. Flavor similar, big chewy hop cone, resiny, thick piney, resiny, chewy resiny, grassy, and resiny. Light bready malts provide just a hint of background, fairly bitter finish but overall the chewy green resiny hop flavors overwhelm here. Hop juice.

planky84 (2102) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Cask at GBBF, 2014. Light hazy gold pour with a white head. Floral hop aromas, splash of caramel and citrus in there too. Citrus and herb flavour. Not bad.

Benzai (8111) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF. Slightly unclear yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, lightly bitter, lightly fruity. Decent session IPA, but not as good as I had expected.

unclemattie (4158) - Georgia, USA - AUG 18, 2014
12oz bottle, 4-way IPA Variety Pack. Very floral nose. Pale orange color, huge lace. Very thin flavor. Tastes of floral hops, a bit medicinal, hints of skunky bitterness. Pale, very refreshing. Nice and poundable. I donít understand why there is a new style, but this one is nice. (4154)

Dogbrick (7907) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Sample at Winking Lizard. Hazy golden color with a medium white head that burns away steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and toasted malt. The finish is crisp and mildly bitter with a lingering herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

crazyvin (1930) - New York, USA - AUG 15, 2014
A clear golden body with a white head that had nice retention. Citrus hops and floral hops upfront. Malts seemed generically sweet. Flavor was mostly grapefruit hops, some mild pine hops balanced it out. Some sweetness through out. Moderately dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
