4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Turbid to the point of cloudy. Dark golden in color. Very light head, but it sticks to the glass in nice lacing.
Fruity hop bomb in the nose. Some tropical notes, I get smell some mango.
FLAVOR- really complex balance of fruity hop forward flavors with just enough resiny hop backbone for balance.
NOTES- after my first sip, I wasn’t surprised that it’s a 99 (as of 7/2015) on RB. It’s exactly what IPA lovers are really wanting today. Many of my reviews of IPAs say that they are part of the 80% of the same that Shidadeyo proclaims are the same. NOT this one. It stands out amongst single IPAs, especially those from small breweries.

2015.07.19-NoDa Hop Drop n Roll-Sampler flight at Charlotte Airport.
Definitely the best of the flight so far. I'm not a huge IPA fan but this is pretty good. Seems closer to a DIPA/IIPA as it seems balanced with maltiness or maybe that's the touch of wheat. It's pretty good, repeat worthy.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can courtesy of McBeer. Wonderful creamy hop aroma. Murky Amber. Some lace. Creaminess softens the hops which have a bit of a peppery finish. A very nice IPA and some uniqueness for the style.

Can pour avg gold with orange hue and large white head. Nose juicy, resin, pineapple, hint of dank hop. Taste big bitter bite up front, dank and grassy hop flavor. Mid palate sweet malt leads to moderate bitter that lasts through the finish.

16 oz can shared by Eric at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours orange copper with a huge off-white head and a strong citrus aroma. There is a full-bodied raspy pale malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. A very nice brew.
