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.

12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Sacramento. Fairly thin, disappearing head, nice bitterness. Bonus point for the renewable power stamp.

CPDalton (67) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle. Deep orange, looks like a thick IPA. Pinky finger of white head, lacing will occur. Nose is very fresh with a strong presence of esters, for some reason I think of a sugary apple. Taste is fruity and slightly malty up front; this is accompanied by a lasting, yet somewhat mellowed, bitterness. Mouthfeel is slightly thick like I predicted; sweet with very little carbonation. Good brew, would like to see a better malt backbone though.

highibus (718) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Deep straw with slightly fluffy white head. Light hippy aroma, too light to pick out maybe a bit grassy. Flavor is a decent hop profile that lingers throughout to the finish. Not bad

Derek881 (1004) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a semi-cloudy amber color with an average sized foamy white head with good cling and lacing. The aroma featured citrus hops, with touches of pine and straw, and a very light malt presence. Its taste had a bitter citrus flavor with a grainy component, and a slight sourness as well. It was a very dry beer with average carbonation to go with a full body and mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 Bottle from Canal’s. Pours out an attractive copper color with a small, fading white head. Aroma is of citrus, light pine, grains, light darkness. Taste is crisp, nice bitterness, pine citrus, light malts. Tasty! (Re-rated a fresh can)

12 ounce bottle. Hazy deep gold color. Foamy white head. Caramel malt nose with a wonderful fruity citrus hop character. Smooth toasted malt flavor. More citrus hops. Medium body with a creamy soft mouthfeel. Finish is brief but pleasant. Well balanced and very drinkable.

obxdude10 (2031) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Amazingly outstanding IPA! Hop Notch pours a very dark golden color with a beautiful off-white, cascading head. The nose is very inviting, with notes of spicy and floral hops, pine, grass, sweet malts and a touch of lemon. The flavors are very well-balanced and delicious, and the body is smooth, creamy and extremely drinkable. This is one of those IPA’s that I could sit hang with all night. Notes from the flavor include dry hops, grass, lightly toasted bread, grapefruit, lemon, pine and a touch of sweet malt. The finish is dry and spicy.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2013 Smells earthy and citrusy, like a grass and orange peel blend with a light malt presence. Has a gorgeous clear gold appearance. I poured a three finger . Taste like it smells. Medium body. Good beer.
