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.

ryecatcher (804) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nice deep orange with a medium white head that dissipated quickly,nice lacing though. Nose is slightly malty,but then pineapple and resinous hops. Medium bodied and surprisingly fresh tasting for a bottle of IPA that is probably 2 months past its prime (bottled in August of 2012), with some grapefruity notes mingled with the malts and some tropical fruit, then a lingering bitter finish. Nice IPA.

MmmcKay (1051) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Hard to believe this 7.3% abv. It doesn’t taste like it. Great IPA. Certainly pushing to Imperial but it doesn’t there. Good balance. Hops are citrusy crisp but weighty which this needs to cover that ABV. Does it so well though. NIce light honey sweetness. Label is not my favorite.

DSG (6106) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at LiBira Pub in Haifa. Hazy orange. Aroma of slightly stale hops, a bit piney. Flavor has slightly stale hops bitterness with a bit of piney and citric hints. Medium-bodied. Seems a bit too old.

tomer (1746) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 5, 2013
At a tasting, thanks DSG, smallish head, hazy orange colour, aroma of herbs, tobacco and bread, flavour of citrus and almonds, strong and a bit coarse grapefruit bitterness. Nice but a bit over the hill.

cheap (4118) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2013
On tap at the mad mex robinson. Smell is fresh IPA, quite floral. Pale yellah, no head. Big bitter mouth coating on style experience. Yes, terribly on styla and fresh too!

nuplastikk (4569) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange-brown-tan. Clean, refreshing IPA. Bold lemony citrus hop tones, with a clean, steady malt backbone. Approaching resinous and oily too, in a detracting way. Overall pretty enjoyable, quality offering, minty crisp. Flavorful, but has a burnt oily hop tone that I don’t enjoy.

12 oz. bottle. Poured clear orange with scant head. Flavor grassy with orange, peach, and grapefruit notes. Also some grapes present at the finish. Solid IPA.
