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.

Really nice overtones on this IPA. Very great flavor of hops and a wonderful aftertaste too.

Pours a clear amber with barely any head. Smells of grapefruit and spruce. Taste is bitter and sweet - spruce and bread - very balanced.

Can from Specs. Pours a golden copper with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, citrus, grass. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and has a medium body and good carbonation. Good beer. Cheers!

czar (4362) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
can. pours hazy golden-orange with a small white cap showing minimal retention and lacing. doughy and spicy toasted malts, some well integrated caramel, fruitiness, pine and juicy resins, grass, citrusy grapefruit, pepper, touch of booze. moderate carbonation, light body - fairly oily, balanced grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. tasty but seems a tad muted.

Bottle. Hazy dark orange. Fray white head. Grapefruit rind. Orange. Tropical. Peach. Some pine. Moderate plus bitterness. Moderate sweetness. Lighter medium body. Dry and a bit earthy, spicy, and almost chalky. A lot of flavor elements. Its better when its not over analyzed.

patrick767 (3571) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2014
bottle - This orange colored brew has an assertive grapefruit hop aroma. The flavor features good, crisp bitterness and citrus flavors preceded by a touch of nicely balanced malt sweetness. It’s medium bodied, finishes with a fresh tasting bitterness, and is overall a very pleasant quaff.

On tap Orangish amber with slight white head. Fruity aroma, wither the fruitiness mixing decently with the hops for a refreshing summer IPA. Citrus remains in aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange pour, off white head. Light fruity citrus aroma, quite mild floral fruit hop flavor. Okay.

Zymurgeist2 (1016) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Grass and earthy hop aroma with a minor citrus hop hint in the back. Orange aroma comes out as it warms. Biscuity malt. Pours a clear orange with a full white head. Flavor leans toward a balance of citrus and sourdough bread malt. Moderate high bitterness and a sweet finish. As it warms, some alcohol warmth starts to show. Overall, a little underwhelming and not robust.
