4.33/5 rDev +0.5%
Good to see I can get bottles of this beer now in GSO.Poured into an imperial nonic a deep burnt orange with a great looking lacey white head,it looks creamy and left a nice sheet of lace as it settled into a frothy mass.Tropical fruits abound in the nose along with some sugary sweetness and more mild herbal hop notes,great hop complexity.Tropical fruits on the palate as well along with big herbal/grassy flavors,there is a sugary base along with some biscuit but it doesn't interfere with the big hops.For me this is easiest the best beer I have had from NoDa,the hop profile is just great,probably one of the two or three best "big" IPA's brewed around here.

A hazy, glowing light copper color with an orange hue. An aggressive pour produces a good head stand of rock to creamy off-white bubbles. The foam has a lasting head retention and leaves a light lacing on the glass.
A strong hops aroma, smelling of citrus, orange, pineapple and a bit of resinous pine. There is a fairly strong herbal and grass dry hopped aroma in there along with a mostly clean malt sweetness with notes of caramel. There is a slight alcohol sweetness as well.
An aggressive hops bitterness with lots of citrus hops flavor dominate. The hops bring strong flavors of pineapple, orange and a bit of orange peel along with a bit of pine and moderately-strong herbal flavors. There is a moderately-light sweetness that is mostly malt along with some alcohol towards the dry finish. There is a lingering hops bitterness with a citrus aftertaste.
A medium bodied beer with a moderate creaminess and a medium-strong level of carbonation.
A remarkable IPA, the hops really shine in this beer with a depth of American Citrus hop aromas and flavors dominating. The bitterness is solid but balanced making for an awesome beer.

A: poured into a snifter, this beer pours a clear golden caramel color. The brew leaves a little lacing, not as impressive as the high end west coast IPAs that I've had.
S: For an IPA with citra, the nose is lacking in the hoppy aroma. Raw hop notes, pine, some pineapple. A little hint of toastiness in the background.
T: this beer is not lacking in flavor. Sweet maulty background, excellent bitterness from the hops.
Mf: this is not a pallet wrecker, the hop profile is strong up front, but doesnt stick around long enough to kill your pallet. Carbonation is excellent, chewwy, and full for an iPA
Overall an ipa worth having.
