I was surprised by this beer. Its definately a really good session beer and good competition for the likes of sierra nevada. Although lighter in abv it is good in the flavour and aroma departments. Will be trying this one again.

Lukaduke (2194) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Pours a deep golden orange color with two plus fingers of white sticky foam. Nose is slightly cheesy with some dank citrus, pine and grassy sweet malts. Palate follows the nose with nice fruity citrus front end than round out with some toasted malt and hints of caramel sweetness mid palate. Finish brings back some hoppy goodness with crisp bitterness and a lingering citrus character. Solid offering.

SlovakSniper (3172) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Une canette de 355 ml. 4.3%. Un beau petit liquide orange. Une belle mousse à grosses bulles. Un nez d’oranges et de fleurs avec une lichette de caramel. Des saveurs florales et moindrement fruitées. Une présence bien feutrée des sucres maltés. Une bouche de moyenne densité avec un pétillement qui m’apparaît assez bas. Une finale bien sèche et fraîche. Une belle bière de soif. Trop facile à boire.

crazyvin (1942) - New York, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Golden yellow body with a white head. Toasted malts and grapefruit hops in the aroma. Maybe a bit of floral hops. Slight sweet flavor. Malts were mostly toasted. Hops were delicately bitter but mostly grapefruit. Floral notes were mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3332) - Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Pours an appetizing golden amber with a thick and fairly persistent pale tan head. Aroma is very hoppy, with a fruity underpinning. Flavor echoes the strong hoppiness promised by the aroma and adds citrus and a bit of malt to the mix. Firm, strong texture has plenty of fizz. Dial it up a notch!

Beerathon (1171) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2014
A solid, sessionable IPA. A bit sticky mouth feel, tropical fruit and pine in the nose, nice ending bitterness with spice kick.

BroSpud (1695) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUN 18, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Another impressive brew from Notch given such a low abv. It is thin and a bit watery but compared to most others on this end of the dial it is a notch above.

AirForceHops (3200) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Draft @ The Ale house. Gold with an amber type hue when held to the light, not completely clear. Decent head retention that had spotty lace down the shaker glass. Hints of citrus, weak pine and grain.

The flavor is citrus rinds or oranges and grapefruit with a somewhat balanced malt backbone. The body is thin with a watery texture. Very light. Caramel / toffee malt kind of subdues the hop profile. Low bitterness that ends abruptly. Really nothing wrong with it but I enjoyed the Victory Hop Ticket I had before it, much more.
