COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop, Drop n Roll 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!

This tasted like a DIPA. Very good offering from an unknown brewery to me. Hope this is a taste of good things to come. I love beer trading and extras!

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/18/2016. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel/nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel/nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon/orange rind, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.2%. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, despite the aggressive bitterness. A very enjoyable offering.

16 oz can poured into an IPA glass. Hazy light orange color with a medium off-white head that mostly dissipates. Aroma of citrus, pine, bread. Taste is pretty well balanced with tropical fruit and hop bitterness working in tandem with biscuity malt. A bit thinner in body than I was expecting. Finish is bitter and lingers. A very tasty IPA and one of the better ones Ive tried from NC.

Can. I kinda quit rating, being in the industry has changed my perspective. However, this is an excellent example of an American (West Coast) IPA. Piney, citrus, grassy, everything you want. I wish I could find these guys in Cincy.

Draft at CLT airport. Golden orange and moderately frothy. Nice tart aroma followed by a downright citric-acidic amusement park ride for your tongue. Quite nice. (#6190, 5/14/2016)

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.
