Bottled on 9/11/17 (one month old)
Look - opaque golden orange with a three-finger off-white head that has good retention and a ton of lacing.
Smell - grapefruit, orange, and pine resin dominate, but there are notes of caramel and dense bread lingering in the background.
Taste - similar to the nose with a superb blend of the hop and malt notes mentioned above. The bitterness is pretty high, but isn’t over the top since it adds to the overall flavor profile instead of taking the spotlight.
Feel - high carbonation, dense body for the style, and incredibly smooth.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky,, bright copper color with a medium sized off-white colored head. The aroma is full of hops and has a nice dose of orange and pineapple mixed in. The taste follows the nose with a nice pine hop finish.

Absolutely awesome! NoDa Brewers you nailed this IPA. I drank this IPA a number of years ago, before I ever heard about rating a beer. Nothing's changed. It's awesome all around.

Tall can of Noda Hop Drop 'n Roll, about 55 F, poured into a glass in September, 2017. The temperature of the beer was perfect for the hoppy character. Beery aroma and a nice head, leaving lacing on the glass as the beer was drunk.

This might be just another modern american IPA from the can description. This brew is better than the run of the mill IPA. The assertive bitterness from the hops has a depth of character most do not. The brewery promises fruity and citrus, but those elements are, to my taste, in the background. There is a malt body that is just enough to balance the hops.

Wonderful explosion of hoppy deliciousness. Perfect level of carbonation. This is the equal to the revered Vermont IPAs.

16 oz can dated 6/26/17

I have these in my refrigerator probably nine months out of the year and never bothered to rate.
Appearance is amazing in my opinion. Shiny clear orange gold-copper. Frothy pure white head, fairly persistent with spotty lacing.
Yeasty scent with a touch of resin, low key. I think all the NODA IPA's share his aroma.
Pear, pine, a little pepper, slight citrus balancing the malt.
Smooth, medium feel with a little bitter kick on the back end.
I've experienced some variation from batch to batch, but overall rate this as a favorite Carolinas IPA.
