Friends down in North CANolina sent me this CAN to further The CANQuest (TM) and I am deeply thankful!

From the CAN: "Proudly Brewed & C[AN]ned by NoDa Brewing Company, Charlotte, NC."; "Recycle, Reduce, Reuse."; "Our West Coast style IPA hits you with a ton of juicy hop flavor that shines out from a substantial and complex malt backbone. We use Citra, Amarillo, Centennial, Warrior and Chinook in 10 separate additions to provide the intense hop blast found within this [CAN]!"

The Crack! was a welcome sound, but given that this was a tallboy CAN, I went with a gentle Glug since I was curious to try all of those hops and I did not want to take a chance on an overflow. I still managed to get a finger of foamy, tawny head with decent retention. Color was an oh-so-slightly-hazy golden-yellow (SRM = > 7, < 9), but although I did not mind it as filtration strips flavor, the Golden Boys eschewed it, leaving me to my own devices. Clarity is overrated! Nose was magnificent, but I leaned in and really got a snootful of hops. If they could make this scent into air freshener, I would be a happy man! Earthy, pine, grass, grapefruit, peach and just a hint of caramel malt were what I could parse from this melange. My mouth was watering like one of Pavlov's dogs at the ringing of a bell and I could not wait any longer. Mouthfeel was medium and the hops hit like a charging rhino, assaulting my tongue like the first wave of soldiers hitting the beach at Normandy. If Ethelred was the Unready, then my tongue was a close second! I know that some would say that this is unbalanced and I am not going to argue that point, but the hops flavors were riotous. It almost seems cliche, but this was everything that each hops variety could impart, rolled into one big hops blast. Pine and grapefruit were the prevalent flavors, but there was an earthy note that ran through it all. The finish was gaspingly dry and now I could taste the cooling peach and caramel flavors noted on the nose. This was a beer that was truly th sum of its parts and then some. Nice lacing formed in my glass as I CANtemplated just how many of these I would want or would drink at 7.2% ABV. Hmmm.

Excellent beer!

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!
