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.

Reid (1899) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2012
12 oz single from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in Salem. $1.39 Pours a slightly darker burnt orange then usual, with a large rocky dirty white head, that fades fast and leaves large amounts of lace down the glass. Slightly resinous hop aromas, with a good doze of caramel from the malts. A nicely balanced IPA in taste. Sure the hops are there but they are equaled by a strong caramel malt. Nice strong mouthfeel to this one. Overall a nice IPA and very drinkable.

PorterPounder (5542) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, medium thick off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma has some patented resiny spruce notes, floral notes in the back end. Flavor is solid IPA with plenty of citrus grapefruit bittersweet notes, some maple syrup notes. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Solid west coast IPA - liking what I see from this brewer.

Beerathon (1164) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Big citrus nose with a bit of a unique sweetness that was unexpected. Earthy hoppy flavors come through slightly. Not heavy on the tongue. Orange with great lacing. Very good!

rdixon77 (706) - Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Solid IPA that was bit more on orange-citrus side than the spicy side. Orange-colored with floral hop nose. The taste was well balanced - strong citrus with grass and bread in there too. easy to drink. Very passable IPA.
