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.

Appearance is deep golden, large pillowy head, a little cloudy.
Smells is pine resin, grapefruit, orange, tropical fruit with some dank Mosaic-like notes some malt makes it through.
Taste is full on bitter with a malty backbone, all the flavors that you get in the nose
Mouthfeel is medium body and finishes dry.
Outstanding if you can get it!
