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.

A great everyday IPA. Pours gold with a nice white head. Floral, grass, and pine on the nose. Sticky resin sweetness and grapefruit on the tongue, with a dry bubbly finish. Very fine.

Can - very slightly hazy light amber colour with slim white head. Citrus hoppy, piney aroma. Taste has similar elements, some nice sweetness, nicely dry, long bitter finish. Medium bodied, fair bit of carbonation, my sort of IPA, very good.

Rated based on notes taken 30 Dec 2014 -- On tap. This was a sticky, resinous, cloudy IPA. And I really enjoyed it.

Clear gold pour with a finger of foam and good job with the lacing. Grass, pine, a bit of grapefruit in the nose. Pine, grass, light citrus, light malt that’s mostly some bread. Not at all balanced but I’m digging the bitterness this brings. Medium body, medium carbonation. A very good IPA fresh, for sure. Mine are best before April 2, 2015.

Not that a label is important, but I dig the old school paper wrapping this 12oz bottle. This beer flowed out of the bottle a quite cloudy golden yellow-orange, not a real pretty beer. The aroma of orange, tangerine, sweet citrus with a little pine. Good flavor, lighter carbonation yields a medium feel and boosts caramel, almost malty flavors. I enjoyed it.

EKGoldings (603) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2015
On tap at Sharkey’s, Radford. Pours hazy amber with nice head. Balanced taste, fairly dry finish. Pretty standard IPA, good but not knocking socks off.

Can. A good, sturdy IPA. Bitter and hoppy, there isn’t much else going on with this beer, but it fits quite firmly in the style. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special.

clint404 (1) - Dublin, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2014 does not count
IPA perfection. The alcohol heat is almost hidden with the caramel malts and hop profile. I truly believe the secret to this beer is in the uinta yeast strain. Maybe the micronutrients also set the hops off. And as I said that’s balanced with the malts. Liquid copper gold. Decent head. My favorite.

Poured an amber orange body with one finger of white head. Nose is florals and sweet nectar. Tasted of fresh hops, oats, and traces of pine. Smooth and very drinkable.
