Thanks Kegatron for sharing this pounder can with me. Pours a pale copper color with slight haze. Decent off-white cap with typical retaining powers.

The smell is primarily compromised of citrus hoppiness with a bit of rindy quality. Little to no malt and alcohol inclusion. Overall nice.

The taste is piney hops with bitter pith and rindy fruit elements. A slight indication of grass and like the nose, little to no alcohol and maltiness.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. This brew has a good balance of character and is easy drinking. I would have this again.

16oz can poured into an Idle Hands tulip. No date on the can but I am told that this can is less than 2 weeks old, so should be very fresh.

A - Pours a darker than expected, medium amber color with average clarity - just a mild haze throughout. A finger thick cap of cream colored head lingers for a minute or so and leaves a thin coat of lacing on the glass.

S - Juicy grapefruit up front and plenty of it. Mildly sweet smelling, sugary, a very faint buttery aspect, a touch herbal, some pine, followed up by more grapefruit. Definitely smells fresh - nice, inviting citrus forward IPA...so far, so good.

T - More piney than the aroma shows, sticky and resiny. Still plenty of fresh grapefruit up front with an appropriate bitterness accompanying the fleshy, pulpy fruitiness. Mild, sweet malt presence that presents a solid base below the hops.

M - Medium body with a nicely balanced mid-level carbonation somewhere between tingly and a bit foamy. Piney hops up front moving to citrus in the middle and finishing again with pine. A bit sticky with a dry, bitter finish.

O - Very good IPA...heard a number of people talk this one up, so was pretty excited to get to try this. Definitely didn't disappoint - really good, fresh citrus and pine components. Sad to see this hit the bottom of the glass. Definitely have to get more of this in the future.

16 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden orange body. Small head that doesn't last. No collar or anything.

Smell - Bright citrus. Orange. Quickly gets overwhelmed by a grapefruit hop. Doughy sweet malts.

Taste - Orange hop again, but it's even more brief. Intense grapefruit and grassy hops. Caramel malt. Faint sweetness. Intense and grassy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Slightly creamy. Very bitter. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Good stuff. First time I had it, I thought it was good without justifying the hype. Now I tend to agree.

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.
