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.

Aroma of citrus zest and fresh juicy hops. Pours a light gold with a thing head that leaves a solid lacing. Smooth thick hops on the first taste. Loses complexity altogether as it warms with only resiny hops on the taste.

Boutip (5207) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle: Poured a orangey/bright amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh citrus and light piney notes with lightly sweet malt backbone is quite enjoyable. Taste is a mix between some citrus notes with some light piney and fruity hoppy notes as well as a lightly sweet malt backbone (but no caramel malt which is nice). Body is quite full with good carbonation. Easy drinking with plenty of flavours.

Hopsclation (89) - Chicago, - AUG 13, 2013
A top notch ipa, pun intended. Bright, clean citrus flavors mixed with a pleasant grassy strawberryness. One of the smoothest, most easy drinking ipa’s i have had in a long time. Really good stuff and reasonably priced, im glad this brewery is starting to get nationwide recognition.

Fritz123 (1360) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at D’Agnese’s Trattoria in Akron, OH. Draft in American shaker. Orange-golden yellow pour with thick, lasting white head. Very nice aroma with significant pine, resin, floral, and citrus. Taste similar with the pine and resin dominant. Bitter, but floral finish. Very well balanced with the malts. Medium body, medium carb. Crisp finish.

AWISLguy (1826) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2013
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!

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
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
