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!

Poured from a can dated 12/10/2014. About 5 weeks old. Aroma - sweet tropical notes - not overwhelming, but good. Appearance - Golden color, nice looking beer. Taste - medium mouth feel - plenty of malt backbone. Palate - nice fizzy after taste. Overall - it is a very good beer, not sure I think it is a 99/100 beer, but certainly a solid beer.

Poured from tap @ NoDa, a medium golden color, forming white foamy head. Aroma of hops, herbs, lite tropical fruits and biscuits yeast and field grass. Flavor pleasantly pungent, bitter hops, mango, yeasty rolls. Deliciously fresh and quaffable.

Aurelius (4445) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Slightly catty, slightly soapy, lightly diacetyl AIPA aroma. Slightly foggy. Slippery mouthfeel. Pleasant diacetyl, staunchly bitter, mineral, not fruity or sweet in particular. Way drinkable. Thanks to someone for sharing this at Baby Proof.

rxeight (1573) - Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2014
This is a 99?!? Can is dated 10/7. Older than I prefer, but in range with stuff I commonly see on the shelf. Kind of a bitter sweetness, too malt heavy. Skunky old hops.

MartinT (8236) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This textbook American IPA pairs caramel malts with mango-like hop aromatics before leaving salient earthy hop resins on the palate.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thin veil of foam floats atop the misty pale amber.
-Bitterness lingers quite long once again for a NoDa brew.
-There is too much caramel for my tastes in IPA, but I respect the craftsmanship in the beer.
-Carbonation is prickly and the mouthfeel sweetish.
-I prefer Foothills Hoppyum IPA in North Carolina IPAs.

On tap at the brewery taproom.
