Noon Day

Style - IPA

Commercial Description:  Our flagship, an aggressively hopped India Pale Ale. Piney, grapefruit flavor with a big nose. An IPA brewed with pale malts, generous amounts of crystal malts and an abundance of whole hops. The hops are showcased through a hop back process, which along with dry hopping, produces a piney, grapefruit and floral aroma and helps contribute to a crisp, dry finish.

Editor’s Notes:  There are a lot of great IPAs to be found in the mountains of North Carolina so I was excited to try Noon Day. The aroma is equal parts citrus and sweet malt – hopefully the taste will be more interesting. Unfortunately the taste is similar to the aroma, with caramel malt and lemon and grapefruit hops sharing the stage. There is some bitterness in the finish, but nothing worth noting for an IPA. The strength of Noon Day is its dry delivery, which helps give the bitterness a little more oomph. Overall Noon Day is a balanced, drinkable IPA that is enjoyable but not one that I would recommend.
