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.

Bought this on a whim and am pretty happy with the purchase. For the price, I wasn’t expecting much, but this is a really solid IPA. Tastes fresh with all the usual "notes" that everyone else has already gone into. Pretty poundable, even with it’s 7.3% abv. I could go back to this one and probably will as it’s tasty and respectably priced for what you’re getting.

Brilliant apricot. Citrusy piney aroma. Taste- biscuity malt and slightly resinous, tropical fruit and citrus flavors. Nicely balanced. Solid IPA. I'd buy it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (3072) - Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2015 Bottle: Semi-golden, light amber color with a very small amount of haze to it. Off-white, eggshell cap recedes over the course of a few minutes. Hop heavy aroma; dense pine resin, very dank & oily with grapefruit, citrus, & white pepper in the periphery. Flavor loaded with pine needles & pine sap. Resinous, loaded with hop oils, & quite pungent. White pepper, grapefruit, mild pineapple, pear, & an earthy, bitter finish. Mouth feel gets a bit watery at times. Decent IPA.

Palidor19 (3047) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2015
This IPA unlike other has more of a malty dominance than the bitter emcee that is usually associated with the style. Rich malt and mild soapy flavor. Just the right amount of strength ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1pintatatime (107) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Pours a nice amber color with an aroma of citrus and resin. There’s a hint of caramel but grapefruit and a hop stickiness dominate. Good mouth feel. I’d drink it again.

From Beer Wine and Co. Nice amber color. Nose is hoppy, grapefruit, citrus. Taste is lots of hope, some grass, and citrus galore. Enjoyable.

Good. Aromas of grassy malt with citrus and pine hops. Nice color and average-weight palate. Nice malt background to support citrus hop flavors.
