NoDa Brewing Co. Dreamsicle India Pale Ale

I saw NoDa Brewing Co. Dreamsicle, India Pale Ale, 7.0% in my local grocery store and picked up a four pack. This is a local west coast style IPA from Charlotte, North Carolina and is brewed with Amarillo, Centennial, and Citra hops with a little sweetness of vanilla beans and orange peel. Dreamsicle pours a light copper color with a billowy three finger fluffy white head that leave nice lacing behind with an aroma of west coast fruit flavors with a subtle yet faint sweet note that carries you into a light yet faint sweet fruited flavor with nice west coast tropical fruits like mango and pineapple with citrus orange and little bit of grapefruit with nice hoppy noted on the back with a hoppy yet smooth fruity finish and a mild hoppy semi-sweet aftertaste with a somewhat medium mouthfeel. NoDa Brewing Co. Dreamsicle, India Pale Ale is a good beer but I didn’t get much vanilla sweetness that I was hoping for so I give this IPA a B+. NoDa Brewing Co. Dreamsicle, India Pale Ale was taste and fruit with the right amount of hop notes but would have liked more vanilla beans. Would I have this again? In a heartbeat and so should you! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
