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.

12oz bottle, pours copper amber, small head retention. Pine and citrus nose followed by some lite tropical fruit. Citrus bitterness up front, gives way to pine, citrus and lite pineapple flavors in the background. The bitterness continues to balance the mild caramel sweetness. Good IPA.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a pale, toasted malt base with some mild caramel sweetness, grassy, mild pine notes, some citrus character. Decent enough.

Orange color pour. Palate is sharp and bubbly. Initial taste is good, but aftertaste is wheaty and grainy. More wheat than hoppy in the aftertaste. Wouldn't buy it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (520) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle poured into a shaker. Aromas of pineapple and bread crust greet the nose with touches of orange zest and lemon. It pours a light, unfiltered hazy orange-yellow with a creamy, off-white, bubbly head that recedes to a medium puffy ring with puffy islands and leaves behind lots of clingy, bubble lace. It’s nicely balanced between medium bitter and medium sweet. The texture is creamy with an abundant, but lightweight carbonation. The body is medium / medium-light. Notes of pine come through more on the mouth than nose and it pairs with bread crust and orange cream. The finish is clean, dry, and crisp with a light pine aftertaste and some citrus coming in late.

Right from the can. Nice blend of summer hay, hoppy bitterness, pine cones and booze. Mildly bitter finish.

Au nez, on sent bien le cote vert du houblon mêlé avec un petit côté citrus. En bouche, c'est amère, malté et résineux. La finale est assez persistante et encore bien amère. Genre de bière que tu peux boire toute la journée! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a medium orange with a fluffy, lively head. Soft nose go grassy hops. Pleasant in the mouth with nice malt balancing the hops.
