Golden caramel in color with a satisfying aroma of pears and citrus fruit. Utah is not that far from California. ..right? I can taste that similarity. Delicious! A +plus

Dark clear orange with one inch of white sticky foam on top in a pint glass poured from a bottle. Fantastic hops aroma with pine and citrus dominating - this is what an IPA should smell like. Taste is solid hop bitterness, exactly what it smells like. Slight maltiness, smooth going down and a lingering of piney hops on the palate. A terrific IPA!

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Amazingly outstanding IPA! Hop Notch pours a very dark golden color with a beautiful off-white, cascading head. The nose is very inviting, with notes of spicy and floral hops, pine, grass, sweet malts and a touch of lemon. The flavors are very well-balanced and delicious, and the body is smooth, creamy and extremely drinkable. This is one of those IPAís that I could sit hang with all night. Notes from the flavor include dry hops, grass, lightly toasted bread, grapefruit, lemon, pine and a touch of sweet malt. The finish is dry and spicy.

Superior IPA. One of the best Iíve had in awhile. Great balance of sweetness with a citrus and pine hoppiness. Jay brought this one back with him from Utah in spring, 2013.

Bright hop aroma, gorgeous head that leaves perfectly symmetrical rings down the glass as it's consumed. Perfect balance of fruit and IPA bite. A staple beer for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grabbed a six pack from the local liquor store ($10+) but it was oh so worth it.... Color: Beer was golden/amber in color and looked like apple juice. Clarity: Beer had normal clarity and not much cloudiness. Head: Beer had nice head retention, about the size of my pinky fingernail. Aroma: Beer smelled so good! I really enjoyed the fruity aromas like citrus, pineapple, mango and topical fruit notes. There was also a strong hoppy presence and a pine smell. It was quite refreshing. Bouquet: Beer had hints of fruity hops and toasted malts. There was also a hint of caramel that really came together nicely. Off Odors: no off odors noticed, just a strong hoppy smell. Balance & Flavor: I thought the beer was very well balanced and not to overwhelming in any area. The tropical fruity notes and strong hops produced an excellent beer. Off Flavors: No off flabors noticed. The beer was just a little bitter but not too bad. Mouth-feel/Body: Beer was light-bodied and had a soft mouth-feel. Once the beer hits your lips, itís so good! Very easy to drink. Tail: Beer had a nice tail that coated your throat but didnít stay longer than necessary. Carbonation: Not too carbonated- just right Overall, this beer has a great flavor and can easily be a picnic or lawn mower beer. The refreshing taste makes it great for spring and summer!

Mmm good citrussy and grassy aromas, fresh. So refreshing and bright, floral, piney, honey. Smooth and silky.
