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.

Wow, very unique. Aroma of honey and cereal. Color lighter for an ipa. Cloudy. Taste: flowers, honey, cherries, bit of reefer. Malty too. Nice sweetness. Mild carbonation, not very bitter for American ipa. Really really unique hop profile. Me gusta

Can while in Seattle. Pours a murky browny gold with a white head. Big tangerine lemon pine aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice and juicy with tangerine, a little pineapple, pine, lemon, woody resin, grapefruit, very light caramel, light marmalade on toast... Nice finish. Tasty.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 7.2%. Appearance: The body is cloudy with a super fine sediment inside a rich amber liquid. This is topped off with a nice tall creamy head which hangs on well and makes tons of sweet lacey patterns on the glass. Smell: The aroma is full of sweet fruity hop notes. I get notes of peaches, white grapes and some mango. Taste / Palate: The base malt adds some grainy bready maltiness and some sweetness which props up the fruity hops. The hops bring a full on blast of mango, peach and a touch of white grape up front. This quickly moves on to more bitter notes of citrus rind. It seems to finish quickly but a light pine like hop bitterness creeps back in on the tongue. The palate feels fairly full and we’ll carbonated. This as well as its 7.3% abv makes for a nice slow sipping beverage.

Tap at Macgregors East Av. Dark amber color with lace. Big fruity nose, orange, lemon, 7-Up, cherry. Sweet and fruity, some pine, slightly earthy. A bit too sugary.

Pours very cloudy yellowish with good tan head and lacing. Aroma is orange-ish and malty. Very mellow taste, not bitter or dry. Good body. Very good, will try again.

Not too bad for an easy evening IPA, not too strong, not too light. I'd get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark clear gold with a huge rocky white head. Aroma is melon, citrus and pine. Taste follows and adds lots of grapefruit. Soft pillowy mouthfeel. Nice.

not sure of the freshness of this one, but it’s what they were serving at Canfest. Medium bitterness and florals. Understated hop aroma and flavor as far as the citrus and pine is concerned. OK, but definitely nothing that makes me see the high rank. i like the Trader Session Ipa MARKEDLY BETTER.

I cannot say anything bad about this IPA it is a fantastic IPA. Hop nosh has a remarkable flavor with a nice bite hop nosh tastes like grapefruit and a little bit of lemon. I rated this high because it is a great IPA and one of my very favorites hard to drink just one
