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.

Draft. Smells only slightly of hops. Poured a cloudy yellow orange with a thin layer of white head. Didn't linger long. Slight hoppiness upfront. Little bitter on the back end. Tastes like dry hops. Not insanely impressed. Good. Not great.

2016, can, dark orange hazy color with an off white head. There is a little bit of a soapy lacing. The odor for me is pine, grapefruit, honey, orange, rock candy, pineapple, herbal, onion, malty. The taste for me pine, tropical fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, honey, orange, bread, malty. Some bitterness throughout.

Pint-sized can:

Pours golden with a lasting foamy white head. Lacing sticks down the glass:

The smell is of robust floral and spicy, piney and citric. Wonderful hop aroma!

The taste is floral with lemongrass, pine, some general citrus. Hops tied together with a caramel-ish, bready backing.

Very smooth. Alcohol dangerously well hidden.

A great brew with a pleasantly aggressive hop character.

Nice nose, citrus and pine and very effervescent with a nice creamy head. An assertive bitterness suppresses the fruit slightly. Still, a very pleasant IPA.
