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 oz bottle. Orange in color and slightly hazy. A rocky off-white foam lingered a bit and left decent lacing. Citric hop aroma. Smells fresh, fruity, sweet and a little earthy. Medium body, slick and creamy with some carbonation. Starts off hoppy and piney with a solid malt profile in the middle giving it nice balance. Smooth flavor. Dry and bitter hop finish that lingers. Pretty good IPA.

Very good brew. Bought this in Portland, ME and had never heard of it before (I’m from Wisconsin). Was very pleased by its taste and hops.

The brewers explanation of this beer is spot on. Pours an amber-golden color with an outstanding sudsy white-ish head that laces the glass, circles the top of the beer and sits nicely. Aroma is balanced, moderately floral and malty sweet. Flavor is clean and floral up front with a "strong malt backbone" for balance and an earthy hop finish. A real nice flavorful IPA that is not over the top in any way.

On tap. Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Earthy hops and cereal grain aroma and taste with a decent bitter bite on the back end and a crisp dry finish and smooth bright medium bodied palate. Lingering hop oils round this one out. Not bad.

Had it on tap. It is not a bad beer, but just not my style. It has a fantastic aroma and great copper/amber appearance, but a little too heavy in the flowery hop aroma and incredibly bitter finish with not as much spice as I like in my IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SUprisingly solid ipa. Rich and citrusy, slight pine, medium bitterness, way better than I expected.

A shared 12oz bottle. Best by 4/18/13. Clear orange - yellow color. Real thin off-white head, decent lace. Nice resiny, pine nose. Nice lighter carbonation - very dry texture. Caramel malts, but a good big bitter hoppiness too. Interesting malt profile. A sweet hoppy finish, too, with a good resiny aroma in the aftertaste. This is interesting... Malt-forward, a little sweet, but still has a very good interesting resiny hop profile. One I need to revisit, I think.

gpekar (477) - Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Poured a very lightly hazy golden amber. There was a 2 finger creamy light beige head that left a decent amount of lacing as it reduced. The aroma was a sweet apricot and tangerine with hints of pine. The beer had a nice thicker body and a good hops citrus rind bitterness and some pine resin right off the bat. There is some roasted caramel malt sweetness that comes through towards the middle. The hops bitterness continues on and hits the roof of the mouth and lingers on the back of the throat during a long flavorful finish. Very good and flavorful IPA!

After reading "Cheap’s" rating on this beer, I knew I had to try it. And it was everything he said he was going to taste like. Hoppy, complex, balanced brew. Can taste the pine and grass hops...nice!!!
