Thanks to kubrick215 for picking up and sharing this growler. My first beer from NoDa.
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with tangerine hues and a 1.5 finger white head. Good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Splotchy lacing left behind.
Spicy hop aroma with tropical fruit and resinous pine notes along with bread and a pale malt backbone. Slightly grassy with hints of pine, mango, pineapple, lemon peel bread/yeast and biscuit.
Medium bodied with crisp hop bitterness that lingers over the sweet malt backbone into a dry finish. Resinous oils with grassy pine and earthy bitterness countered by subtle fruit sweetness. Malt backbone is stronger than expected but doesn't interfere too much with the hops giving off notes of biscuit and graham cracker. Well balanced yet still retains a strong hop profile. Enjoyable and easy to drink.

No canning date that I can find.
A: Pours a clear amber with a big frothy light tan head. Head fades out at a moderate pace. Substantial heavy lacing left behind. Great retention.
S: Nice bitter grapefruit aroma. Further sniffs reveal a spicy, resinous pine backing it up. Smells pretty dry, no real malt to make note of.
T: Again with the grapefruit briefly, but there is a big, big spicy, resinous, dank pine here too. Malt is just a side note here, I get some dry breadiness briefly. Heavy, sticky dankness pervades the finish and aftertaste of this beer along with waves of bitterness. Dry and mildly bitter dankness lingers forever between sips.
M: Nice light-medium body, smooth and dry. A bit of mouth coating resin.
O: Pretty intensely hoppy IPA that goes down surprisingly well despite a simple malt. Not too bitter but quite dry as a result. Big bold hop flavors everywhere thought. Lots and lots of spicy, resinous pine for sure, giving it a dankness that can't be understated. Very tasty.
