This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking copper color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving light streams of lacing. The smell had a glossy sweet citrus to light bitter citrus imparting a light spice to balance. The taste was sweet to bitter and added the light spice to enliven and help to accentuate a nice bitterness rolling into the aftertaste and adding a decent dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation rolls over my tongue nicely with a good IPA harshness. The bitterness level is at a medium level. Overall, I say this was a nice AIPA that I would have again.

Not sure how to phrase with all the wine review like adjectives but real good hops, strong but pleasant and still juicy and malty. Drink it often on frequent nc visits.

Gold with vibrant carbonation and a half inch of dishwater white. Moderate lacing. The aroma is of citrus & piney hops with some light malt. The taste is a scortchingly intense citrus hops burn with some piney hops in the fade. The mouth is moderately sticky and chewy.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear medium golden pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Moderate retention... great lacing.

S: Resinous pine and citrus... lots of hops here.

T/F: Biscuity malts and grains... lots of pine notes mixed with grapefruit and citrus. The malts are rapidly replaced with raw bitterness which is definitely my thing. A little unbalanced towards the bitter, which is in no way a criticism. Body is medium. Great carbonation. Finish is oily hops.

O: A pretty damned good IPA... drinks almost like a DIPA. Tasty, bitter, flavorful... this ones got it all.

As a Charlotte native, I'm obligated to love anything by NoDA brewing. This one I enjoy not begrudgingly, but enthusiastically. Perfect blend of hoppy and sweet. Nice color.

Sparkling clear amber with a large fluffy white head and garter lace.

Smell is mostly harsh, dank pine, onion, wood, bark, resin and rubber, but there are some fruit notes of grapefruit, orange, and peach layered in.

Taste is spicy and sharply bitter pine, bark, and grapefruit, with caramel, resin and rubber coming in as it warms.

Light frothy and dry.

L: Light golden color with a big white head that really lasts.
S: Hops and more hops, then a little pine and maybe a hint of a sweeter malt.
T: A blast of piney hops and resin and then more hops in the finish.
F: A little on the lighter side of an IPA, but it does have a dry finish which I like.
O: Really liked this IPA. Since the west coast IPA is my favorite style and I live in cali I usually find others attempt at this style lacking. This one however had everyone a good west coast IPA has, the look, smell and taste are really great.
