Pours a fairly clear deep copper with a frothy cream head that slowly dissipates leaving moderate lacing.
Resin, sweet caramel malt, sharp citrus, cannabis, and pine form the aroma. Onion lingers in the background. Pretty dank.
Flavor reveals a slightly sweet body of caramel malt, underneath of which lies resiny, grassy hops, which finish fairly bitter and piney. There's a bit of grapefruit throughout, along with peach.
Body is moderate, with carbonation a touch high, accentuating the bitterness.
Good malt and hop flavoring, fairly complex, but the bitterness is a little too harsh and overwhelming for my tastes.

Received as gift from Mark Rodda. In a can. Bottled on 4/28/14. Poured into a nonic pint glass.
This is a beautiful beer with a great aroma. Good bitterness from beginning to end. A very good IPA but at 7.2% ABV comes off more as an imperial. Very drinkable. 4.25
A – Pours a clear golden with a two-finger white rocky frothy head, good lacing, good show in the glass. 4.5
S – Beautiful aroma with apricot, grapefruit, orange blossom and sweetness. 4.75
T – A balanced beer with good maltiness and an herbal bitterness in the finish. 4.25
MF – Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Under carbonated. Sort of a flat mouth feel. Smooth yet a lasting bitterness on the palate but not a biting finish. 3.5

Thanks to LGB362 for a couple of these cans: one went down during our last poker session, this one is for the review. 16 oz. lime green can.
Pour is a pleasant young orange IPA. Carbonated. Nose is mild orange, candied sugar. Smells more like pop - or soda, as you have it - than beer.
Hop, Drop 'n Roll gives off the same impression the second time around: too sweet. That candied orange sugar with corn syrup just won't stop: it runs the taste buds down & stickies them up. After the invert sugar blitz comes a modicum of conifer bitterness that tastes & feels secondary & doesn't meld real well; the hops give the dominant orange a bit of a medicinal taste, maybe a touch dank. Half the can is fine: my wife is enjoying the other half more than I am.
This one just doesn't finger my joy buzzer. Too much sweetness for an IPA, too gentle & loving. Decent enough.
