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.

There’s no secret about this beer. It’s pretty hoppy. that said, I am a big fan of ipas and this one does not seem to distinguish itself in any particular way.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottled 6/09/12. Enjoyed on IPA day! Pours orange with a small off-white meringue-y head. Citrus zest aroma with sugary orange, papaya, grapefruit rind, and pine. The flavor is sweet citrus and pine, bitter earthy notes of bark and dirt, with a bitter citrus pith finish. Verging on creamy, with a dry finish. Nice. [1125]

This is a great IPA. Perfectly balanced, you get all the hop without it being overpowering. A beautiful citrus/pine aroma. I'll be picking this one up again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ADesenberg (630) - Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle: pours a very light copper, or a very dark golden color with a nice off white head. Aroma is grapefruity. The taste is, nice... not overpowering. It still has a great solid bitterness, and the familiar cirtus. But there is a solid malty or breadiness that keeps it all in check. Tasty. I just picked this up at random at the store the other day, and have to say... it was a solid lucky pick. Good Beer.

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with great lacing. Aroma is apricot, mango, and pineapple fruity esters, citrus and pine hops with honey and biscuit malt. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, supporting light malt, tropical fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
