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!

Very nice IPA in a bottle in Southport, NC Lowes. A little darker, plenty of aromatic hops and nice creamy head and lacing.
