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!

On tap at VBGB in Charlotte. Orange color with a big white head. Lots of citrus in the nose and in the palate, with a great hop finish. I really liked this one.

islay (1620) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2015
5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Charlotte, North Carolina. Consumed on 9-20-15. Pours a hazy, bright, orange-gold-brass. Light beige head. Produces good, very extensive lacing. Apricot nectar-like appearance. Good, dank, piney, sweaty aroma. Quite hoppy. Very good smelling beer. Invitingly funky aroma at first, but it gets a little old on multiple sniffs. Definitely memorable in smell. Really nice, hoppy flavor. A touch of apricot fruitiness. Really pleasant. Well above average IPA. Really well done. Funky, dry aftertaste with a touch of spice. Soft, frothy, and smooth in the palate. These palate effects work really well with a good IPA. Quite impressive.

This might be one of my favorite IPAs. It pours a cloudy orange color with a decent head/retention. Citrus nose. Definitely can taste the citra hops. There is an IPA bitterness, but not overly so. Perfect amount for a citra hops IPA. Malt backbone, but once again not overly done. I am reading how others are getting a mango taste. I am getting a bit of a peach, with an orange zest to it. Bitterness lingers after the taste is gone. Upset that this is not available in my state, otherwise this would be one I would regularly get.

Maltser85 (357) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - SEP 15, 2015
The beer pours a very hazy golden orange color with a small off white head. Juicy, fruity nose. Some grapefruit, non descript citrus along with some sweet malts. Seems to be a yeast element as well, maybe some tropical notes (peach??). Tremendous flavor the whole way through. A grapefruit citrus pop up front rolls in to some tremendous malt/wheat notes and the finish is amazing! Extremely dry, pleasant lingering bitterness. So much going on in this beer, its a really nice surprise for an IPA! Huge body on this one from the grain bill...fits nicely with the insanely dry finish. 7.2% ABV isn’t noticeable at all. Excellent, Thanks Jeff!

Draft at Carolina Beer Co in the Charlotte airport terminal. Pours a deep hazy golden orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is melon and other citrus fruits. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with prickly carbonation in the finish and notes of bitter grapefruit and mango. Nice stuff, not sure how fresh but it hits the spot after a stressful flight.

Scouser (312) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Pours a cloudy golden copper color with a little white head and good lacing. Mild aroma of malt and mango. Tastes of mango/tropical fruit followed by a grapefruit citrus bitterness. Not a bad beer.

16oz can pours a hazy yellow amber color with a bit of frothy head. Intense hoppiness. Tropical fruit and very resiny at the end. A bit harsh.

APPEARANCE- Turbid to the point of cloudy. Dark golden in color. Very light head, but it sticks to the glass in nice lacing. NOSE- 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.
