Noble Ale Works Citra Showers

Nobel Citra Rain8.8% ABV. Double Imperial Stout from Noble Ale Works in Anaheim, CA. Ended up trying this brew from a vendor straight out of California after seeing repeat photos of this beer in Instagram. Being a DIPA fan, I just had to give this puppy a try! Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head that retains nice oily webbing throughout. Dank citra hop in the aroma along with some mango, kiwi, grapefruit, tangerines, and pine. The flavor is almost as good as the aroma, which was a mild let down. Juicy layers of lemograss, citrus, pine, mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. Medium-bodied, well carbonated, and fairly dry throughout. Overall, a solid DIPA and falls just slightly below the big DIPA boys from SoCal!
