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.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Draft at Commercial Taphouse. Pours a medium orange, nice head. Good caramel accented malts with a pleasant hoppy finish, the standard grapefruit and pine, touch of earth. Palate synchs up with the nose. Although nothing groundbreaking here, it is a very solid brew.

Narnad (1448) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Pours a nice clean orange color with a modest, dense white head atop it. Hopes can be smelled as soon as you pour it in the glass. Huge citrus notes - lots of grapefruit acidity and orange sweetness, light caramel malt late in the nose but the hops really dominates it. Strong grapefruit up front with a nice pine middle and a sweet orange citrus finish. Body is modest with low carbonation. Overall a very tasty brew. I wish there were just a tad bit more carbonation to deliver a slight bite to compliment the grapefruit and pine notes.

12oz bottle. Light amber with a nice light biege head. Some resin, hint of grapefruit, nice malt characters. Moderate but somewhat mild body, moderate carbonation, nice and bitter with a hint of sweetness, malty, long tasty finish.

Reid (1848) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2012
12 oz single from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in Salem. $1.39 Pours a slightly darker burnt orange then usual, with a large rocky dirty white head, that fades fast and leaves large amounts of lace down the glass. Slightly resinous hop aromas, with a good doze of caramel from the malts. A nicely balanced IPA in taste. Sure the hops are there but they are equaled by a strong caramel malt. Nice strong mouthfeel to this one. Overall a nice IPA and very drinkable.

PorterPounder (5341) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, medium thick off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma has some patented resiny spruce notes, floral notes in the back end. Flavor is solid IPA with plenty of citrus grapefruit bittersweet notes, some maple syrup notes. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Solid west coast IPA - liking what I see from this brewer.
