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.

Clear, medium gold, tall head. Full body, dense flavor, rich, low alcohol heat, good carbonation, vibrant and smooth mouthfeel, great balance, lingering aftertaste. Very bitter but more than supported by background sweetness. Very hoppy and equally malty, resiny. Delicious, addictive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear amber, tall but loose knit and quickly dissipating head. Slightly earthy nose. Medium body, full flavored, low carbonation and acidity which results in a flat mouthfeel, long aftertaste. Very bitter, overpowering the abundant malt background, resulting in a dry beer with a bitter finish. Hoppy, grapefruity, earthy, malty. Powerfully bitter, very nice drink if you are in the mood for that much bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iznogud (1318) - CROATIA - FEB 12, 2015
On tap at Mugs Ale House, Brooklyn. Pours hazy golden with white head. Nice hoppy and fruity aroma. Tropical fruit, hops, pine, caramel in flavor. Good balance and nice IPA.

theOptimator (305) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Aroma is sharp citrus and apricot. Hazy amber with almost no head. Taste is pronounced bitterness, almost like an earwax. Im having a hard time with this beer. Im not sure what my problem is with this but to be honest I am going to pour this beer out. The malt seems good enough and aroma hopping is great, but the hop bitterness is just awful. Possibly an astringency mixed with high IBU’s. Maybe its a bad can.

Scents and taste of citrus, pine, and grass. Cloudy with a light lacing. This is a very good IPA and pretty well balanced IMO. Very enjoyable hoppy bite with smooth dry finish. I’d definitely buy this baby again as it satisfies my need for hoppiness.

Caramel, doughy and slightly sticky up front. Blends and fades to grapefruit, tangerine and pine as it becomes less sticky. Almost clean finish with a slight return from the caramel. Great winter warmer on this cold winters day. Good with spicy chili, I suspect it would compliment lamb or beef stew.
