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.

Pours a nice light orange copper with a nice fluffy off white head. Aroma of nice orange peel with a hint of pine and malty sweetness. Taste so big sweet caramel malt that leads into a large grassy pine hop. Med smooth oily body with a long hoppy but not too bitter finish that's gets smoother the longer you drink. Overall a delicious beer with the perfect marriage of strong hops and sweet malt. I will be getting this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can from neighbor Bob B. - thanks! I hate to say this but I felt overwhelmed and blitzed by the profusion of hops. Pull it back a bit and you might have had a beer worthy of such high ratings, but not this one as it is now. I can’t comment on the other flavors because I couldn’t taste anything else.

Aroma of pine, citrus, wet hops. Pours copper with white head, medium carbonation and body. Taste of pine, bitterness, alcohol, citrus, caramel and hay. Interesting, multidimensional palate. Overall a solid IPA for someone looking for a more bitter forward beer.

BiereLuc (859) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Bière cuivrée, trouble, peu effervescente et vêtue d’un moyen col mousseux. Le nez propose un panache houblonné herbacé alléchant. En bouche, nous avons droit à une belle amertume résineuse de verdure. Le tout est enrobé d’une mince couche sucrée. La finale est longue et l’arrière-goût se prolonge en amertume pendant de longues secondees. C’est bon. Très bon!

Really nice overtones on this IPA. Very great flavor of hops and a wonderful aftertaste too.
