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.

The nose is malty with some floral hoppiness. The taste started with a mild maltiness next comes moderate floral and citrus hops. Finishes clean and dry. Nicely balanced beer. Fruity and refreshing.

Draft at a Taco Mac. At first blush, this is another cookie-cutter, orange-amber beer. This does drink with a nice creamy appeal, however, and is super pleasant to drink. But it lacks any real hoppy kick I was expecting, just a floral flourish at the end instead. (#4512, 2/27/2012)

On tap; poured an orange color with a whitish head. Aroma of orange, citrus, caramel, and bread. Flavor of citrus, orange, earth, bread, and some yeast and pine. Crisp flavor, but not great.

1 march 2012, bottle. yellow, clear, steady bubbles, foamy head. big oily, resiny hops on the nose and nothing else. thin/med body and a bit fizzy. dried resiny hop flavor. really not much to this. resiny hops and a bit of malt balance to differentiate it from a west coast ipa. okay.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some pine, oranges, and lemons. Flavor is quite bitter with a strong citrus flavor. Some malt presence but this certainly one for the hop heads and I am one. Aftertaste is also bitter.

Great hop aromas. Very good hoppy citrus flavors. Easily one of my favorite single IPA’S.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 29, 2012
12oz bottle. This is a really attractive pour - a crystal clear golden amber with a thick creamy beige head that leaves a soapy cap and delicate lacing on the sides. Aroma is a mixture of light sweet citrus and floral notes. There is some pineapple and mango with some lemongrass and pine resin. The malts are also present with a light doughy bread character. Taste is less citrusy than the aroma, though there is a hoppy bitterness up front. It just doesn’t take on much citrus flavor. The malts are more prevalent than in the aroma and there is caramel malts and some toasted bread in the background. The finish is bitter with pine resin lingering with some alcohol burn. Mouthfeel is lively with strong carbonation and spritzy and bitter in the finish. This is a decent IPA but the bitterness is a little too much considering the lack of underlying hop flavors. OK.

reggiedunlop (3109) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Pours a clear golden with a medium white head...nice lacing and decent retention. Aroma is lightly fruity with some sweet citrus...grapefruit, mango, pineapple. Flavor follows suit...adds some peach and firm bitterness...slight sweet malt backing. Mouthfeel is medium and oily yet lively and the finish is bitter,dry, and a bit fruity.
