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.

Elwood (3079) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Serving: Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a hazy amber color with an off white, pillowy head. The nose has medium pine notes and not much else. The flavor has weak pine notes, a touch of tin, with a light malt backbone. A little weak in the flavor department. Somewhat surprising given the ratings it’s gotten. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Run of the mill IPA in my opinion.

Loved the color and the head. could be a bit more bitter, but smooth crisp slightly fruity taste is nice

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - MAY 28, 2012
aroma of pine/grapefruit gives way to an amazingly balanced hoppy ale with some nice malt and aromatic hop aftertaste. Could use just a bit more bittering hops but otherwise a great beer.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Copper pour with nice, creamy tan head. Aroma is of caramel and piney hops. Nice carbonation and a resinous mouthfeel. More of the piney hops with a solid, earthy malt backbone. Long bitter finish. Pretty solid IPA.

BelgianBeerGal (3139) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Fresh bottle via trade. Pretty nice IPA overall. Nice malt balance to the slightly sweet and slightly citrus hops. Medium bitterness. Pretty good.

Did not live up to the hype. Not hoppy enough, and flavor profile rather boring ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drfabulous (3937) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 26, 2012
12 ounce from mix six pack at Foodery. Sweet and malty IPA. Little bit of that fruit flavor some give off. Not a hop bomb by any means.

hivemind (708) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2012
12oz bottle from Rockland Beverage. Had in Manford. Pours dark amber. Aroma and palate are very dry hoppy. A hint of citrus on the tongue. Fresh. Pretty good.

BK7 (731) - Turner, Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle. Pine balanced with sweet malts. Resiny. A bit thin in the middle. Sweetness comes out strong towards the end. Dry and bitter finish.

FriarHop (121) - Long Beach, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2012
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
