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.

Beautiful pine and hops on the nose. Pours a clear amber. Very clear taste and great balance. Little bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hoppy but not at all astringent. I liked it. Nose is great for a hoppy ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber color. Sweet malt and hop initial sips. High alc is masked by big malt sweetness. Slightly grapefruity and chewy. Not the first ipa I would reach for, but definitely if I was to recommend a sweet brew. With high hop content.

Interesting, another Utah beer. For years never had one, then went to Utah and got some, and ever since I’ve been seeing Utah beers finally get imported to NY. Nose is nice - flowers + grapefruit. Silky fruity mouthfeel. Very dry hoppy finish, also noticed tropical notes in the palate.

Une canette meilleure avant le 4 février 2014. Cette IPA a une robe cuivrée et un col mousseux qui ne tient pas la route. Au nez, elle offre principalement des parfums de pamplemousses et d’arbres à aiguilles. En bouche, les houblons citronnés sont très puissants. Heureusement que des bons malts peu sucrés offrent un réconfort à mes papilles. Au palais, le liquide n’offre rien de déplaisant. Les bulles piquantes soulignent chaque trait d’amertume mais possèdent aussi un pouvoir nettoyant. La texture qui est huileuse ne souffre jamais de cette agitation. La finale est bien verte comme une huile tirée d’un sapin bien jeune et fringant. Une IPA bien ficelée.

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, it’s so good! Very easy to drink. Tail: Beer had a nice tail that coated your throat but didn’t 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!

Bottle. Light amber body. Frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, resin, toasted grain. Hint of tropical fruit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The usual resin and grapefruit hop flavors, but some sweetness help balance those along with some fruit flavors.

Best by 03MAY13 Nice golden with a solid quilt of fine creamy foam. Smells classic west coast: resin, weed, pine, grapefruit and BO. Nice nose. Flavor is up front bitter with a malty (crackers, biscuit and some sweet english crystals) backbone. There is a good resin bitterness with a spicy flavor and some good midpoint purple kush. Medium on nearly full bodied with fine, moderated carb and a watery finish. Nice beer. I probably won’t go out of my way for this one, but would drink on tap locally, particularly with a good spicy meal or pizza.
