West coast style of IPA on the east coast. Definitely on the better side of IPAS I have had recently.

Hop, Drop 'n Roll pours a copper color with a small but lacing head. There is a bold hoppy aroma. The taste has a smooth but hoppy flavor, with a hint of bitterness and dryness at the end. Very easy to drink, good body. Overall, its a full bodied yet easy drinking slightly bitter and dry IPA.

As fine of a beer as I've ever had. No wonder Hop Drop won the World Beer Cup Gold Award this stuff is indeed liquid gold. Huge hop and grapefruit flavor but it could not be smoother going down. Can drink this every day! Cheers and thanks to NoDa Brewery!

American IPA brewed with Citra, Amarillo, Centennial, Warrior, and Chinook hops. Poured from a 16oz can into a Goose Island tulip. The pour is slightly hazy, apricot in color, and sports a creamy eggshell white head that retains quite well. Lots of bitter, oily, sappy hop aromas on the nose. Pinetrees, flowers, grass, and grapefruit.

Medium body and hop-forward flavor. Marmalade, honey, bread, and citrus fruit. Kind of a syrupy, resiny bitterness instead of the bright, fruity bitterness that I prefer. The balance is not bad, but the hop bill just isn't working for me. I'm no brewer, but is it a good idea to use five different hop varieties in one beer? The beer can't decide if it wants to taste like pinetrees, rosehips, or a big juicy orange. Everything is muddled and the resulting bitterness is not all that pleasant.

I was anxious to try this beer because I heard some great things about it, but I was a little disappointed. Perhaps I got a bad (old) 4-pack, but I just wasn't impressed. I will likely try it again though.

Incredible and unique. Crazy flavor profile. I almost get cashews or something at the end. Not everyone will love this but man alive I do...

Acquried during a trade from @wmjones3, thanks! Great to have tried this. On my want list for some time now. Great nose. Citrus notes. Major hops up front. Drinks like a DIPA. Great balance with a nice kick. Alcohol present but not much, still juicy. Well done

Good looking: amber and cloudy with plenty of head and sticky lace. Caramel and tropical fruit aroma.A bit boozy for a single IPA. Very West Coast, pine, tropical fruit a big hop punch at the finish. Leans toward the sweet side. Heavy-ish body for the style

All I can say is that I think this beer deserves serious consideration in the top 10-15 IPA's in the country. Talk about balance, I think this beer is on the precipice of genius

Unpleasant taste, bitter and lacked that fresh hop taste I had expected. Color was cloudy and dreary.

Pours opaque amber with a fingers width of off white head. Good lacing and legs that linger for a little while. Very aromatic, tons of tropical fruit and citrus, followed by slight resin notes and malt sweetness. The taste is of grapefruit, mango, and citrusy fruits. Light biscuity notes & malt sweetness that balance the bold forward hops. Very sweet and hoppy. Mouthfeel is very silky with medium carbonation. The hops linger on the tongue and coats the mouth well, the alcohol not overly present but is still there in the background.

Overall this is a very balanced, hop forward IPA. Very sweet, but balanced out by the heavy hops. This doesn't disappoint.

Received via trade from @humuloner22 and poured into my SN IPA glass.
Appearance: Kind of a murky orange, two finger fluffy head with enough lacing to cover an old lady's end table
Smell: Piney resin and over ripe sweet fruit on the nose.
Taste: A sweet fruity malt taste is up front. This is normally something that would be off putting for me but not in this beer. Piney hops follow up the malts and sweet fruits like tangerine and melon roll in after the pine. The sweetness is offset with lemon rind bitterness that balances it out nicely.
Feel: Fuller body and almost syrupy, but good carbonation, slight alcohol burn and bitterness balance this out.
Overall: Very good IPA. On the sweeter side but well balanced and very drinkable. As I read my notes, it sounds like something that I wouldn't like. But this is really good and I look forward to finishing off the 4 pack that I have.

Delicious beer with just the right amount of hops but also has a slight citrus/fruity taste.

Not a hop head and this was a damn fine brew. Very balanced with hops and malt. No discernable alcohol taste. Could crush these any time of the year!

This is a really nice IPA...aroma is nice and stays strong throughout. Flavor starts out kinda fruity...grapefruit and mango are present....the malt provides a nice balance and sweetness during the sip. And then come the hops to finish and stick around til the next sip...they hang on the tongue for dear life!
I applaude any IPA that stands out from the crowd and this one did not disappoint!

I got this one via trade with @CHSASVbeer. Poured from a pounder can into a standard pint glass.

Look: Appearance was a medium orange color with a two finger white fluffy head. Minimal glass lacing.

Smell: Sweet malts, citrus, tropical fruit and some pine. Very hoppy nose.

Taste: Citrus and tropical fruits first with grapefruit, huge pineapple, mango, fruit cocktail flavors. I then get this huge sweetness that is candy like. It tastes almost like a fruity candy, kind of like the red candy apple coating. The sweetness really carries all the way through the finish which adds some pine and bitterness.

Feel: Full prickly mouthfeel with some bitterness and slight alcohol. Nice carbonation.

Overall: This is a solid IPA, but not one that I would say can stand up with the best. Still, I would drink this anytime. Good solid beer.

Silky smooth IPA. Alcohol hardly noticeable. Lots of flavors going on. Delicious! Much deserving of its accolades!
