Beer Review: Hop, Drop 'N Roll

Reviewing Hop, Drop 'N Roll from NoDa Brewing Company out of Charlotte, North Carolina.

Score: 95

16 oz can served in a Mikkeller & Friends stemmed taster and enjoyed on 05/21/14. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: Pours a golden amber color with three fingers of foamy sea-foam head that slowly recedes to a thin layer. Okay lacing, solid retention and good cling. 4/5

Smell: Primarily grapefruit and piney hops. Nice fruitiness and grassy character. 4.5/5

Taste: Resinous pine, grapefruit, lemon and a little spice. A light dose of sweet caramel malt as well. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Light plus bodied, appropriate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Nice bitter bite. 4.5/5

Overall: An IPA lover's IPA. With a good bitter bite and tons of pine and grapefruit, this is everything you want in your hoppy beers.

Cost: $11.99 for a four pack of 16 oz cans.
