COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. It’s balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

Pours a clear amber with barely any head. Smells of grapefruit and spruce. Taste is bitter and sweet - spruce and bread - very balanced.

Bière cuivrée, trouble, peu effervescente et vêtue d’un moyen col mousseux. Le nez propose un panache houblonné herbacé alléchant. En bouche, nous avons droit à une belle amertume résineuse de verdure. Le tout est enrobé d’une mince couche sucrée. La finale est longue et l’arrière-goût se prolonge en amertume pendant de longues secondees. C’est bon. Très bon!

Can from Specs. Pours a golden copper with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, citrus, grass. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and has a medium body and good carbonation. Good beer. Cheers!

12 oz can from neighbor Bob B. - thanks! I hate to say this but I felt overwhelmed and blitzed by the profusion of hops. Pull it back a bit and you might have had a beer worthy of such high ratings, but not this one as it is now. I can’t comment on the other flavors because I couldn’t taste anything else.

Really nice overtones on this IPA. Very great flavor of hops and a wonderful aftertaste too.

Aroma of pine, citrus, wet hops. Pours copper with white head, medium carbonation and body. Taste of pine, bitterness, alcohol, citrus, caramel and hay. Interesting, multidimensional palate. Overall a solid IPA for someone looking for a more bitter forward beer.
