This beer use to be worthy of the gold medal it won but not so much anymore. It's like chewing on a flower and not the tasty kind. They ruined this beer.

I don't like hoppy beer so this wasn't a beer for me. It smells like a Christmas tree and taste like hops.

Looks a light Amber, clear and semi approachable but, meh.
Smells like piney dirt after a rain storm in the campground forest....
Tastes dirty and old (even though this can is only 2 weeks old) - not my favorite- huge malty characteristics and not good.
Mouthfeel is smooth and half way balanced but can't get over the malt overload.
Can't dig this beer to much, I've given it 4 different opportunities now to change my mind but this is my last go, just too malty

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.

What the hell happened to what was once the greatest IPA in all the land? Whatever it was, it isn't good. Something has changed and NODA needs to undo it. What a disappointment.

Way too piney for my taste, and I'm not a fan of IPAs with a strong malt backbone like this one. If you are a fan of Sculpin, Tropicalia, Jai Alai, etc - this will not be to your liking. Other than having a citrusy smell this drinks like an East Coast IPA. Really disappointed.

I got a lot of bitterness and not in a good way. So much that it tasted like a home-brew with residual hops in the bottom. The malt didn't seem to match up well with the brew either. Not sure if it was just the can I got or how the beer actually tastes. Can't say I recommend this one.

Thanks to LGB362 for a couple of these cans: one went down during our last poker session, this one is for the review. 16 oz. lime green can.

Pour is a pleasant young orange IPA. Carbonated. Nose is mild orange, candied sugar. Smells more like pop - or soda, as you have it - than beer.

Hop, Drop 'n Roll gives off the same impression the second time around: too sweet. That candied orange sugar with corn syrup just won't stop: it runs the taste buds down & stickies them up. After the invert sugar blitz comes a modicum of conifer bitterness that tastes & feels secondary & doesn't meld real well; the hops give the dominant orange a bit of a medicinal taste, maybe a touch dank. Half the can is fine: my wife is enjoying the other half more than I am.

This one just doesn't finger my joy buzzer. Too much sweetness for an IPA, too gentle & loving. Decent enough.
