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.

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.

Appearance - Pours nice deep golden color with a thick dense white head.

Aroma - Light tropical aromas some orange and pineapple along with light caramel and bread. There is a faint pine aroma as well.

Taste - Hop and resin up from along with a good amount of grapefruit bitterness. The malts come in at the end to finish it off.

Feel - Medium bodied nice carbonation slightly dry finish.

Overall - A well done west coast IPA would have liked to have seen a little more hops the malts were a touch more than expected.

Tall can, 6/15/17 on the bottom....gotta love fresh high quality IPA in a can!

Pours typical Amber, long lasting khaki cap, leaves loads of thicker froth and lace

The nose is loaded with resiny hops....pungent

Full flavor and well hopped up ipa....more resins, citrus and hoppy goodness

Well worth a try

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.
