Got a can of this from my beer guy following one of his other number one customer's trip ti the east coast. Can't get this in Michigan so I was quite excited to try it. This ipa pours a very handsome, hazy orange hue with a two finger white head that gives way to a nice film and silky lacing. The nose is very fruity; lots of tropical notes of mango, papaya, grapefruit, and even apricots. There is also a pine and resin dankness present in the aroma. There is a little malt but it is subtle at best. The mouthfeel is smooth and a little sticky. Very nice coating hop resin and easily sippable. The flavor is more citrus and pine than the nose. The tropical notes are lost but taken over by bitter grapefruit pith and pine resin bitterness. This is actually a good thing in my opinion as I was concerned about an overly fruity taste based upon the nose. The finish still reveals some of these tropical flavors and ends with a dry bitter bite on the tongue. Overall, this is a very good and unexpected ipa. I look forward to sampling more NoDa offerings the next time I'm in their distribution area.

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.

Poured from the 16 ounce can into a snifter.
Copper in color, but dark enough to be approach amber, the beer is darkened by a bit of haze. A nice, persistent head sits atop the body, creamy, fluffy and frothy with a cream color. Lace forms in abundance around the glass. 4.25
So much fruitiness is on the nose of this beer. It's got the citrus but also strawberry that with the sweetness suggest strawberries and cream. My daughter would probably mistake this for a smoothie. There is a resinous aroma beneath the more prominent sweetness. 4.5
There's just as much fruitiness on the tongue, but also a huge bitterness. This is an aggressive brew. Still, it manages to be quite sweet as well, and I get a bit of caramel. Towards the finish the strawberry rears its head again and I love it. For me, this is entirely unique. I haven't had another IPA with that level of fruitiness. 4.5
I mentioned strawberries and cream on the nose, but this feel like a creamy concoction. It's smooth and medium- to heavy-bodied and very filling. There's big sweetness balanced by huge bitterness, and a dryer finish with a tad of astringency. 4.5
This beer is exceptional. It's a gem in all rights, but the huge berry aromas and nose are just stunning. 4.43
