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.

12ox bottle from a six pack that cost me $7.99. Clear orange color, creamy head, good lacing. Smells like caramel and orange rind, not bad at all. Flavor is hoppy, citrus orange rind but has a pretty good malt backing to it. Overall, not bad and a good value but I am s biased towards west coast IPA’s.

Dark and cloudy orange pour from bottle at Gsp. Sticky head. Mild and subtle aroma. Very dry and bitter, tons of hops which I love. Dominated by that. Can't complain! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

halfonit (1164) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2012
On tap at battleship. The beer pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Aroma is quite floral with a little bit of grass and pine. Slightly sweet malt aroma, mostly bread. The flavor is moderately sweet without a ton of hop flavor either. It’s mostly grass and line with a touch of floral hops and citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice and crisp IPA..

Leighton (10769) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London - many thanks to Sledutah! Pours clear, rich gold with a frothy, white foam head. Sugary grapefruit nose, toasty malts, ferns. Medium sweet flavor with lots of juicy citrus, toasty bread, light pine. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lots of sticky sugars to finish, pectin, dry caramel. Very nice IPA.

anggrec (65) - Delaware, USA - NOV 2, 2012
From bottle to tulip. Clear copper color. I am a hop lover and this is the perfect combination of malty, citrusy, hoppy flavor. I like it a lot.

Aurelius (4115) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bright, grapefruity/floral, hoppy malty aroma. Great embossed bottle and label. Clear, gold beer, big head. Bold hopping, but well-played. Sour fruits, a little salty. Good execution, good balance. Not the most complex but intriguing. Substantial body, west coast finish. Very good. Bottle, Mellow Mushroom, Augusta, GA.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV
Hazy amber color with generous head. The hoppy aroma is partially fruity, nice. Medium body strength; good malt and toffee flavor, with resiny hops. Long final.
Good, bitter, but easy and too caramelly, therefore hiding the qualities of the hop.

arondee (561) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Pours an orangish color with a small white head that fades quickly. Aroma is sticky hops and malts. The taste is orange peel, grapefruit, and a good malt backbone. A good IPA.
