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.

Draft at the Pine Box. Pours a clear golden with a scant tan head. Plenty of steadily rising carbonation. Nice fragrant balsa wood and pine cone nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Reedy, woody mid palate. Toasty. Approachable and clean and refreshing, but unremarkable despite not having any big flaws.

Wonderful inviting floral and fruity aroma. Tastes hoppy up front, wet, juicy with a touch of dryness setting in halfway thru. Not too bitter, a wonderfully flavorful easy drinking ipa that's easy on the palate. Absolutely fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsmerig (1291) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours a golden yellow. Aroma of ripe green hops. Saaz or other Noble variety. Taste is candied sugar with a slow building peppery spice to balance the sweetness that still wins out in the end. I haven't had an IPa with these hops before. Very interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yeah! Now we’re talking. Nice pine / hop nose. With a good orange peel and grass taste. The brew was blended well with caramel malts. Yeah Boy!

r464 (1944) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Aroma of hops and grassiness. Light and crisp, full of hops. Citrus zest, a touch of malt, spice, and earthiness. A bit buttery in the finish. Some flavors remind me of an ESB.
