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.

Not much of an aroma on this but it is dense and orange in color. Very clean start and finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Head was almost non existant. Had a decent aroma remeniscent if a lot of west coast, citrus styles. Tasted delicious, went down easy. Grassy and piney with a solud amount of hops throughout. Would have ranked higher with a better appearance, that’s all it lacked.

Arcadia (59) - DeLand, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from ABC. Pours a dark murky orange with a very thin head that's gone almost instantly; surprisingly good lacing, though. Aromas of flowers, grass, pine, and maybe some orange as well. Very sweet on the tongue and on the way down. Light body, considering the abv, and even a somewhat watery finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. Acquire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jus floral hyper aromatique à la sécheresse infinie. Les céréales se collent à l’amertume dans une longue finale. Frais et délicat.

probstblueribbon (3160) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Sample at Syracuse Beer Fest. Murky deep golden with a tight off-white head. Nice tropical fruit with some woodsy and spicy notes, fairly sticky caramel malt, a little phenolic (wet ash), interesting. Fruity, resinous, spicy and woodsy with fairly sticky caramel malt as a backbone; lightly sweet with firm bitterness and a long, caramel, spicy, pine, fruit finish.

BVery (7267) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Can from Binny’s. Slightly murky orange pour with a big pillowy white head. Lots of malt and pine in this. Clearly well made, but not really my style of IPA.

In a glass from a bottle. Good aroma with nice floral pine smelll. Very good drinkable flavor but a little on the bitter side.

sudomorph (774) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly opaque orange/brass with a frothy looking head and medium sediment in the bottle. Aroma has nice notes of orange citrus, bread, caramel, pine, and resin. Taste is balanced. Citrus and pine mixed with resin, and them bready caramel, and a medium, resiny aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. A bit resiny in the mouth with a soft carbonation and dry finish. Overall a nice brew. Citrus and resin over top of a nice bready/caramel backbone.

MarkBarnes (385) - Waterville, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Nov. 3, 2014; 12 oz. bottle. First sight of this in the area. Cloudy, amber pour. Underwhelming aroma. Heady, sticky lacing. Piney IPA with strong malt backbone & impressive bitterness. A winner.
