COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. Itís balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 12oz bottle. Standard orange colored IPA with thin white head. Hops are quite noticeable, but take a backseat to the malt profile. More of a piney hop flavor and a bit stinky in the nose once it warms. Meh, it’s okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours light amber with a white sticky head. Nice lacing. Light aroma of pine and orange/tropical fruit also some sweet bready notes. The flavor is pretty subdued yet well balanced with the pine and hop resin dominating. The body is fairly light with medium carbonation, the bitterness lingers nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at 1702. Pours a mostly clear orange-amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is citrusy, tropical fruits and some resin. Taste has a nice sweet malt backbone with dry bitterness. Medium bodied and oily. Bone dry finish. Pretty good and super bitter.

nj_BierMaven (98) - Flemington, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours a deep golden-approaching-amber color. Aggressive bottle pour yielded a 2-inch head that slowly dissipated, left a nice lacing on the glass. Disappointed in the aroma, guess Iíve been spoiled by the floral aromas of competing IPAs. Solid bitterness, but not balanced entirely right with the malts. A good beer, but not one of my faves and IPAs are one of my favorite styles. Something missing in the malt complexity, so itís a little too hoppy. Wonít be plunking down cash for another sixer of this too soon.

Nice big hoppy aroma when the cap is popped. Primarily a peppery bitterness that lingers for a bit before departing. I was halfway done before Iíd even realized it.

TheJestersBeer (2032) - SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2012
355ml bottle. Pours a pale gold, white head. Hoppy, resiny aroma, grapefruit, apricot, spruce, quite spicy, dried fruits, yeast, caramel. Off-dry, medium body, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Fruity, hoppy taste, grapefruit peel, spruce, pine resin, apricots, caramel, rather floral and spicy. Nice. (2012-05-13)

rollinsr (365) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - MAY 19, 2012
Pours a light amber with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma is sweet citrus hops. Taste is slightly bitter but not overly hopped. Good easy drinking IPA with a serious ABV. Good stuff.

kryon (1323) - SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2012
Pours amber wth medium white head Very hoppy aromas of citrusy fruits and caramel malts. Nice! Mmm. Palate is low sweetness with medium bitter ending. Its a bit frizzy, has nice citrusy tones. Well balanced from start to end. Not as hoppy in taste as in aromas but overall id say this is top notch!
