Hop Drop ‘N Roll by NoDa brewing is a 7.2% ABV World Class India Pale Ale.

Label:
Our West Coast style IPA hits you with a ton of juicy hop flavor that shines out from a substantial and complex malt backbone. We use Citra, amarillo, Centenial, warrior and chinook in 10 separate additions to provide the intense hop blast found within this can.

==Introduction==

It has been a while since I traded with my good friend Aaron Mendiola from www.beermetaldude.com but recently he has brought me a great number of beers to put on the site for your viewing and reading pleasure. Give my friend Aaron a like and read on his site as he has had a lot of experience in the Metal and Beer fusion category.

This beer is not from Texas but the last beer I tried from NoDa was the Tart Attack. This one is considered a very good IPA. Even for just an IPA, I really want to find out what this one is all about. So if you join me, we can take a look at this one. Hop Drop ‘N Roll into this IPA. Cheers!

Aromas:
Rich orange, grapefruit, citrus, piney, grassy and herbal hops, tangerine preserves, mango, biscuit bread, guava notes, papaya, pineapple, vanilla, caramel, dank onion and garlic hints, honey dew melon, tangerine candy an sugar cane.

Flavors:
Grapefruit, citrus, piney and grassy hops, Oranges, mango, tangerine preserves, passion fruit, guava, papaya, biscuit bread, vanilla, caramel, pineapple, strawberry hints, hazelnut hints, sweet grapes, sugar cane, tangerine candy, herbs, dank onion and garlic hints, honey dew melon and cantaloupe.

Aftertaste:
Finishing with Tangerine, piney, grassy and grapefruit hops, citrus oranges, honey dew melon notes and biscuit bread. No alcohol in the taste, very drinkable, crisp, refreshing and almost creamy mouth feel and hazy orange full body.

Overall:
This one is a perfect example of a great citrusy IPA with good balance. A beer like this has its place to be one of the best in the style. While I mainly prefer the more tropical forward IPAs, this one is very enjoyable and is one I would love to try and drink all the time. I would highly recommend it and thank Aaron for the share. Cheers!

Anime Corner:
Vocaloid Hatsune Miku was used in this pairing to pair with the name and the label as well as the colors of the label. Hop Drop ‘N Roll sounds like taking off in a hurry or speeding in a race. While the beer is very drinkable at that it flows super well which corresponds with the speed of how fast you want to drink this one. The car may not be the same as the label but you kind of get the idea.
