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.

Nice and hoppy but not a complexity of hops. I'm not seasoned enough to pick out which variety of hops they use but kind of one dimensional.

Frothmeister (717) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2016
12 fl oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with some sediment floaters, and a one finger light tan coloured head. On the nose, lots of resinous notes, with grapefruit, passion fruit, faint lemon, and a hit of booziness. Medium bodied with some mild sweetness hiding under the bitter grapefruit, citrus pith, light caramel, and tropical fruit notes up front. Then it heads into more pith-like bitterness, mineral notes, with some above average bitterness with some heavy fruit notes in the finish. It’s not extraordinary, but it’s solid.

shigadeyo (3633) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Bright tangerine hops, sugary citrus, slightly floral aroma; hazy orange color, thin off white crown; floral and citrus hops, fresh hops, hair enough malt, but a bit soapy in the finish; medium body, slick mouthfeel; good, but not really that great. Draught at Marty’s Hops & Vines in Cincinnati, Ohio.

ordybill (1302) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear copper to orange color. Has a medium sized white head. The aroma is all hops with some citrus. The taste is a big hop rush with some citrus at the end. An outstanding beer.

It was hot out and this IPA hit the spot. Had it on draft at Citizen Burger in Carytown.

Can. Hazy amber. Citrus zest aroma. Bitter, citrus peel and the slightest oxidation (old can). Medium body, fizzy, a little green and bitter finish. Nice.

A really tasty IPA from a solid brewery. This one clocks in at 7%+ but you would never really tell, really nice balance and of course the hops plow through the taste. Nothing crazy going on here -- just a solid IPA. And that’s not bad at all.
