COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop, Drop Ďn Rollô IPA For us this is where it all started! The rich golden color comes from a blend of English and American base malts accented with substantial amounts of Victory and Wheat malt. The American citrus hops take center stage with emphasis on late boil additions of Citra and Amarillo. This signature ale is hopped before, during, and after the boil!

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.

Stumbled on during a layover in Charlotte. Can poured to shaker. Honey gold in the glass. Fluffy white head held up. Nose is all about the hop resin. Big sock in the tongue of an IPA. Grapefruit, pine, really well balanced and the hop board is ridiculously complex. Thanks for making my layover enjoyable.

High class hop bomb. Medium bodied with fluffy pillowy head. Big juicy hop upfront with explosive citrus and resin lingering from the dry hopping. Pretty bitter finish but extremely full flavored. Great fresh one!

Tap at Charlotte airport, NC. (rated while having a cold, such a shame for a beer this good but hey, I have a layover in NC and you donít skip trying a beer like this under any circumstances). Pours slightly hazy straw, creamy white head, prominent lacing. Aroma is lots of lemon drop, big citrus, bit of tangerine, mild spot of grapefruit and dankness I notice if look for it. nice malt backbone. Flavor is lemon, citrus, grapefruity, ooh, floral and lots of pine, solid hop bite, but also a decent malt backbone. Good mouthfeel, kinda soft, a bit dry. It reminds me of two hearted. Itís a well-balanced citrusy ipa. Itís not a big tropical fruit punch or a West coast ipa, but it is damn balanced.

Alcohol is still pretty high at 7.2%, but this beer has everything you want in an IPA. Citrus, pine, light malt, and a lingering hop bitterness. A winner.

Cloudy pour, somewhere between yellow and orange with a huge foamy head. Aroma is full of citrus with a slight bite to it. Kind of floral as well with hints of very overripe fruit. Taste is incredibly juicy. Full of citrus and passion fruit. Insanely balanced, which makes it so drinkable. No alcohol detectable. Medium bodied.

16oz can from Busick! Much thanks bro! Pours out a darker Amber color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of citrus rind, caramel malts, light grapefruit pulp, and pine. Taste is much the same, with a dry grassy finish. Solid

Pint can from the brewery. Citrus aromas, grapefruit, orange rind. Clear orange with a mostly lasting off-white head. Dry, hops dominate, pretty bitter, light caramel flavor. Medium bodied.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Aroma of hop resin and malt. Good lookin deep Amber with lacing. Big pine and citrus hops with lots of resin. Sweet bread and pepper as well. A slow drinker, but excellent.

On draught at the brewery, this pours a deep golden-amber into the glass with a huge 4-finger head that leaves a nice froth cap with thick ring lacing. The nose is beautiful, floral and citrusy with woody pine accents. Flavors have grapefruit, pine needles, lots of rind/peel notes, light biscuit, light lemon (with zest) and finishes with plenty of citrus zest and pine bitters, lingering appropriately. The medium body offers a smooth, creamy mouthfeel that quenches the palate superbly. Pairing it, on-site, with fresh seafood was a delight. Complex, substantial, fruity, floral, bitter... what's not to enjoy? Perfect flagship brew for a very nice brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
