Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice citrus forward hop presence all around.

this beer really impressed me. on tap at the charlotte airport for some nine bucks, I was unsure at first for obvious reasons. it pours a hazy goldenrod flower color, dense looking but with very good carbonation amounting in an inch or so of white fizz. the nose is unbelievable, really yummy. tons of citra hops and other high alpha varieties, way more fruity than bitter, with notes of grapefruit and lemon candy, fresh peach, and dried grass. the malt is rather unremarkable, which is okay because the hops complexion is just so big and interesting. I love the way the hop flavors come though without making this supremely bitter. it is a bigger beer, and drinks like one, with a fuller body and a slight boozy warmth on the finish. a couple of these is enough, but the use of citra hops here is something to behold. best airport beer ive ever had, no contest.

edit: i much preferred the canned version, more pronounced bitterness and a cleaner feel, but i have to admit, drlovemd87's effort to share it with me may take the cake for most extremely generous beer share ever, ill have to nominate it.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high fluffy white head that died down but consistently left a head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of pine resin hops are present in the nose along with hints of citrus.
T: The taste follows the smell, but has a little less in the way of pine and some more in the way of citrusy hops. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has very nice aromas and flavors. It is rather easy to drink.

Riding high with the acclaim of 2014 Gold Winning status, this hop bomb of a beer employs some of the sexiest hops on the planet and with a dry, bready backbone acting cleverly in support.

Hop, Drop 'n Roll pours a froth mid-amber, bronze color with a creamy and frothy off-white cap. Citrus, tropical fruit and an herbal, grassy medley align on the nose with toasted succulence and a verbose perfume. Its taste is bready-sweet with a toasted caramel, pecan and lightly honied taste to coat the tongue early.

The sweetness drifts across the middle palate, lifting gently to make way for the hop onslaught to come. Pink grapefruit, tangerine, nectarine, cantaloup, pineapple and apricot pull from the hop and ester tandem and develop into a resinous but smoothly bitter finish of fresh grass clippings, muddled herb and soft pine needles.

Medium-bodied, creamy and retaining a light starchy body, the hops are well supported by malt but the associated sweetness has largely dissolved, leaving behind a light tea-like semblance with a bright fruity finish. Citrus peel and pine roll into a long-lasting aftertaste of spruce and juniper.

Thanks to Wil for this one!

Pours a dark saturated orange, slight haze, but the light streams through. Creamy foam on the surface, sticky collar around the edges with a good amount of fine lace in the glass.

Fresh sliced oranges, pungent fresh bitter greens in the aroma.

Green hop bitterness lingers long in the aftertaste. Citrus peel, dandelion greens, and buttered biscuits comprise the range of flavors. Light to medium bodied, carbonation is at a pleasantly soft level. Fresh hops really shine here, nice complexity and intensity.

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy amber color; the head is respectable and leaves a bit a lacing here and there

Smell: Grapefruit and tropical fruit elements

Taste: A hint of sweet malt and then we are off to West Coast hoppy paradise, with grapefruit and tropical fruits; the bitterness builds, in the middle and through the finish; just a touch of residual sugar lingers in the aftertaste, taking a back seat to the grapefruit

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A first class IPA from a state which doesn't produce many of them - nice to find this and would love to see it in bottles

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/18/2016. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel/nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel/nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon/orange rind, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.2%. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, despite the aggressive bitterness. A very enjoyable offering.

Golden bronze in color with a bib fluffy head. Grapefruit bomb. Very juicy. A lot of floral hops. Hop resiny stickiness with some dankness. A bit piney. Has a fairly big malt backbone, but it isn't too noticeable or distracting because of the hops. Fairly bitter.
