22oz bottle. Rating #7. Beautiful bright orange color with a dirty white head. Big piney aroma, great bouquet. Lots of bite, citrus and a huge hop aftertaste, quite a good IPA by the T-Man. (1395) beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Sampled on 8/28/2010. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is citrusy hops, caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and herbal. A medium to high bitterness IPA. Good carbonation. Nice balance of the malts and hops. Definitely in the west coast style of IPA and very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.

Orange with a yellow tinge and a puffy, persistent and finely laced off-white head. Light smell of fresh hops coming off the pour followed by a grapefruit and citrus pith flavor and bitterness that dominates. Almost a little bit of soapy taste that I’m sure is from the hops and not a defect. Medium bodied with the malt in the background where it should be. Nobel Ale Works is a new brewery here in the OC and it tastes like they’re off to a good start! BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Bottle at the Blue Palms Brown Bag IPA tasting (tasted blind). Bottle thanks to IPAfiend (I think).Pours with a hazed golden body and a small white head. Aroma is fruity, dank, with some raisins or molasses (odd). Taste is fruity, and grainy. Maybe a bit faded, or didn’t translate well to the bottle. Dry mouthfeel.

Taps brewfest...pours a slightly hazy golden orange. Aroma is citrus hops.. Verrry verry bitter lingering citrus hop flavor. Good carbonation..I really like this one. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 23, 2010
I had this on tap at Pizza Port San Clemente
Nice looking pour with a good floral/piney nose and hoppy flavor. I think that this is nicely done IPA. mcbeyond (104) - Newport Beach, California, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Pours dark brass. Subtle, aromatically complex nose. Flavorful on the palate with pleasant bitterness. Balanced, yet powerful.
