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.

Bottle from Arminettis in Mundelein with a good by date of October 25, 2013. Pours a golden orange with a white head leaving a lot of spongy lacing. Aroma has pine and fruits and citrus with a very floral happy aroma. Faint toffee. Taste is off bitter citrus, spicy pine with resin and some sweet toffee underneath. More citrus down through the glass. Light to medium bodied and neither syrupy nor sticky. Slightly dry, easy drinker. Finishes more bitter than sweet and tasty. This is a nice one!

Perhaps mine was too old? Felt very thin and a little bit sour/astringent on the malt side and the hop profile was too mild and earthy. Very little character. Meh

Beautiful hoppy, tropical fruit aromas. White foamy head and nice orange body. Fresh hops and citrus flavors some slight earthy pine. Crisp with a nice hop bitterness on the palate. Delicious!

Berard (429) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep golden yellow with white head that is thick and lingers, particularly unusual for an ipa. Sweat grass aroma and above average carbonation. Very drinkable ipa with nice complexity ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
