4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Stopped by Duckworthís in Charlotte last week and having never tried anything from these guys, I stared out the evening with this.
The beer presented in a tall tulip glass. A slightly hazy dark amber/gold color with a good bit of froth on top. Big hoppy aroma. Grapefruit, orange slices, honeydew melon, freshly-ground hop cones. Thatís what Iím talking about. Very nice aroma. Iím excited for this one.
Moderate heft, holds up to the alcohol and flavor profile nicely. Crisp finish. Fresh hops all over the palate. Nothing tastes artificial or cheap here. Lots of fresh citrus fruity flavors, mild veggie greens, sweet honey malts - great balance! This was surprising. Such a great IPA. I am continually impressed and excited that NC is finally making some strides and improving their IPAs offered. One of the top-3 in the state IMO. Nice work, NoDa.

3/8/14. 16oz can thanks to b3shine! Mostly clear amber pour with a small khaki head but plenty of lacing. Crazy hop aroma, very dank, very grassy, dank, bitter, some cat pee. Bitter flavor, a bit astringent and soapy, grassy, dank, cat pee, lingering sweetness. Was more enthused by the aroma. Not bad.

Can: pours a nice orange color with a smallish white head. Aromas are sweet citrus fruit. There is a nice wheaty backbone to it that balances the bitterness out superbly.

16oz can shared. Pours a hazy deep orange color with fluffy white head. The aroma citrus hops and hops and hops. Yes you get the malt in there but this a hop forward beer. The flavor is not as bitter as you think. Solid malt backbone laced with hops and hops. Really good flavor and not jumbled like some can be. Overall great job.
