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.

thebeertourist (4769) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle at Bishops Arms Vasagatan. Amber, some froth. Tropical fruit, orange zest hop nose. Malty flavours balanced by quite complex hop flavours. Nice one, but lacking the extra kick?

puboflyons (2070) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 18, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz bottle with an expiration date of 07/25/14. Cloudy copper-amber pour with a full cream colored head that diminishes and laces. Subtle but notably floral and piney hop aroma mixes well with the roasted malts that are hanging around the background. A keen sweetness with that bitterness. Medium body. Solid bitter finale that is not explosive but balances well with the quick roasted malt character to start.
