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.

355ml bottle. Looked unfiltered. Citrus and pine aromas. Citrus hop taste, reasonably well balanced with some caramel malt. Average body. Nothing ground breaking, but a solid workhorse IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ericdevin (788) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from New Frontier Market, Eugene. Pours a golden orange, some white head. Nose crisp and citrusy, just a hint of pine. Body full and lively, finish has a resiny bitterness, but really complex, a tangy sweetness as well. Surprised at how much is going on, especially for the price. Not to be slept on.

Pours a nice light orange copper with a nice fluffy off white head. Aroma of nice orange peel with a hint of pine and malty sweetness. Taste so big sweet caramel malt that leads into a large grassy pine hop. Med smooth oily body with a long hoppy but not too bitter finish that's gets smoother the longer you drink. Overall a delicious beer with the perfect marriage of strong hops and sweet malt. I will be getting this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can from neighbor Bob B. - thanks! I hate to say this but I felt overwhelmed and blitzed by the profusion of hops. Pull it back a bit and you might have had a beer worthy of such high ratings, but not this one as it is now. I can’t comment on the other flavors because I couldn’t taste anything else.
