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.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Fantastic! Best of the best. This is what an IPA should be. Wonderful strong aromas, great bitter hops and loooads of flavor. Great Beer.

PhillyCraft (5896) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Backlogged blackberry Tick, had bottles of this many times with Annie but this tick is from a North Jersey booze brew fest in 2012. Pours light hazy copper golden with 2 finger white head. Notes of pine, bitter lemon, grapefruit, toasted malt, and herbs. A little thin but not bad. Haven’t had this in years but I only imagine its gotten worse like most craft beer.

Poured into a glass from a bottle. Hazy appearance. Aroma is outstanding with strong citrus and pine notes. Taste is consistent with the smell but a underwhelming bitter and grainy finish leaves a lot to be desired. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at SBWF 2016. Hazy dark golden with a white head. Hoppy with grapefruit, grass and malt. On the sweet side with a medium bitter finish. A decent one.

canary dog (743) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - SEP 22, 2016
I really have trouble writing reviews for these IPAs because they all, relatively, taste the same to me. High quality, fresh-tasting IPAs are a dime a dozen and very few examples are doing anything dramatically different or re-inventing the wheel. At least not the ones I am drinking. And there’s nothing wrong with that. This is another fine tasting IPA I would qualify as high-quality.

Gold orange. Creamy head. Strong fruity candy, powdery resin. Nice aroma. Same taste, with pine citrus. Mild malty but clean and hoppy. Strong bitter. Good balance.Full body, nice character, all around nice IPA.

GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Can at the Lincoln Wine Bar. Pine and fruits: peach and grapefruit. A little fizzy to me--I don’t like it as much as their Detour, but a solid beer.
