3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange pour with a creamy single finger head. Lace is present. Slightly dish soap like. Lots of citrus and dank fruits, but not overwhelming. Grassy with some hints of melon. Refreshing and dry. Medium bodied mouth.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a straight-up orange translucent color. Tons of thick, foamy white head dirties my glass and overstays its welcome.
Smells nice, but lacks the pungent hop punch of its peers. Hops bounce on & off the palate; fresh citrus for a few moments before things turn bitter. Finishes with lingering bitterness and traces of citrus. Pretty nice.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy orange. Thick, long lasting off-white head. Smells of grapefruit and pine. Taste very similar to how it smells. Very sharp pine followed by a candy like grapefruit and tangerine. Bitterness lingers but isn't overwhelming. There is a nice resiny finish. Very refreshing beer. Good west coast IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pine aroma. Citrusy, bitter hops with a sweeter finish. A bit sticky in the back of the throat.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours a dark amber wit a high, creamy, large-grained off-white head. Nose is a nice balance of floral and citrus, with orange and hollyhock predominant. Bitter on the front of the tongue, but with an oddly hollow mid-palate. I just don’t get much beyond the initial burst of hops. Finish is light and a bit flaccid. Enh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange-golden pour with a white head. The aroma has some pine and floral notes as well as a good bit of biscuit malt. The flavor is a mix of orange citrus with some pine and biscuit malt. Low bitterness with a good bit of sweet malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange/amber. Head disappears rather quickly but good lacing. Smells of pine and mango. Taste grassy, earthy and spruce. Medium body, nice malt sweetness though a tad of resin. Long, lingering herbal, slightly metallic finish. Case expires in one month, this bottle still says Hop Notch. I might have rated it higher had it been fresher.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brilliant orange/amber colored pour. Plenty of carbonation. Big white head that slowly falls. Plenty of lacing left behind. Big citrusy hop aroma. Some malt and yeast character. Taste is malt with a bit of earth and lemony hops.

2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Great hop aroma. Taste is overwhelmingly hoppy with a sweet malt background. Hops used seem like a fresh hop or otherwise wet hop that soured in a bad way. Hops, which are the feature of this beer, come across as swampy. I’ve had better homebrews.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Money IPA, one of the best I have had. Big hop flavor with a malty background. Dark color for such a bright beer, easy drinking palate without being thin, on the edge of being Imperial, can’t wait to try their double!
