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.

As far as ipas go this was a good example. However i am not a big fan of ipas so im a bit biased against it. Poured a pale yellow with very little head. Taste was of grapefruit with other citrus undertones. A strong bitterness but a little flat long finish.

Aroma - hoppy aroma of pine, with some citrus, sweet fruit mango/pineapple, floral qualities, as well a caramel malt. Appearance - hazy orange w/ a white head. Taste - piney hops and grapefruit Palate - medium body, lively carbonation, and a big hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours partly clear orange brown with off white head. Nose and taste is citrus and pineapple bitterness with some sugary sweetness. Tastes like a double IPA.

Pours a murky copper with a huge off-white head, Fresh scent - cut grass with hints of citrus. Taste is average. Malt back, slightly burnt. Tingles on the tongue. Hop presence, but nothing too stanidng out. Not too citrusy, not too piney. Just hops and malt. Overall, I am just not impressed. Doesn’t seem complex like the deScription.

Hammy78 (949) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear copper, huge white head, lots of lacing. Nose is sweet caramel and citrus, some pine too. Tastes sweet, a little bitter, gives way to caramel. Really nice and balanced.

This is a good IPA with plenty of caramel-malty flavor and the right amount of hops, not overly bitter easy to drink would recommend.

Cool brewery idea, using solar energy to brew beer! Body is a little heavy but taste and hoppy aroma make up for it.

rosenbergh (9745) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2015
12 oz bottle. BB 10/03/14. From a kiosk in Portland, OR.
Hazy orangey golden color with a small white head. Citrusy hops, lemon, mild bitterness and dry grainy malt in the aroma. The flavor is... old hops... shit... I didn’t check the BB date before buying... There’s old hops, mild bitterness and dryness in the flavor. Needs a rerate.
And the rerate is coming much sooner than I thought...
12 oz can. BB 1/8/16. (Beermongers) Portland, OR.
Deep golden color with a small white head. Citrusy and piney hops, some bitterness and dryness in the aroma. The flavor is... fresh... citrusy and piney hops, moderate bitterness... Tasty.

Had it in tap. Pours beautifully clear and copper with a thick head. The aroma is a mix of malt/citrus & hop, but weak. The taste is of a smooth hop malt IPA, I could use a little more punch for the effort.
