This beer is phenomenal. Amazing, thick aroma with grapefruit, orange, grass, and a biscuity dankness. Taste is ridiculous. Just a juicy, dank, hoppy, resinous IPA with great balance and flavor. The hops are in your face, but the right amount of maltiness softens the blow. Feels a bit sticky, which I love in an IPA. One it warms a bit it really opens up and almost drinks like a DIPA. Props to NoDa for this beer. Its easily one of the best IPAs I've ever had.

Also - Just did a side by side with Heady and this beer easily won. I don't know how fresh the Heady is that I got in a trade, but it couldn't stand up to the HDR. Call me crazy, I'm just calling it like I taste it.

A-Clear amber, not much carbonation, one finger head that tries to leave some lacing.

S-Good bit of hops, earthy grass notes and slight citrus.

T-Starts with nice citrus and orange. Good bit of hops, earthy and grassy.

M-Medium bodied with a harsh hop bite.

O-Thankful to have tried it but it didn't live up to the hype for me.

Thanks to Jlindros & Rudzud for this one.

App- On the darker orange end of the spectrum with some ruddy brown on the outside. A bit more of a bright center with some golden yellows and oranges intermixed. A big 2 finger head was there and stuck around for a bit. Great cling down the sides of the glass. Nice webbing as it slid down the glass.

Smell- This was more of a pungent hop aroma with more bitter and malt behind it vs. citrus IMO. I liked the big pine aroma with a bit of a backing citrus vs. the star of the show. The pine intermixed nicely with a bit of caramel malt as well.

Taste- Was not what I was expecting. I was thinking again for the east coast they wanted to make a West coast IPA and that was not it. The malts continued to come out and had more of a pine flavor with just a small floral citrus flavor to it.

Mouth- A very solid medium body with a medium thick carbonation. A bigger bodied beer and I could appreciate that for a change. It was nice to have some sustanance behind it and left some residual pine and citrus.

Drink- It was an above average beer for me, I liked and enjoyed it, but dont think I would crush a few in a sitting with the body and carbonation. A one and done drinker for me. Thanks for the tick to my RS guys.
