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.

sfontain (790) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Copper-amber pour, lovely thick pillowy white head dissipates into a medium ring and retains gobs of lacing down the glass. Aroma exhibits lots of pine and citrus, bready. Flavor grassy, caramel, sharply bitter. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, almost silky; nice. I don’t think the malt -quite- stands up to the hops here and so I think this is a nice beer but I don’t find the balance to be quite right. Tasty, though.

Flaska@Monks Sveavägen. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med fingertjockt skum. Doft av citrus och ananas. Fruktig och kraftig beska i smaken. Lite tunn munkänsla. Bästa hitills från detta bryggeri.

EyeAmBaldman (184) - Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Pours straw yellow from the bottle with a thin white head. Aroma is strong, spicy. Taste just belts you in the face with hops, and they are strong and spicy. The backend burns down your throat. Not bad but maybe a little too strong for my liking.

Jay_Dubbz (77) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Poured from 12oz bottle. A wonderful shade of burnt sienna with a ivory head worth noting. Hints of pine and lemongrass open the senses. Well balanced hop profile with a slight bite in the finish. A well rounded IPA good for any occasion. --you've been Dubbed.

HeistAlmighty (1110) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
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 (658) - 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.

pnesbit (93) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - JUN 19, 2014
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

Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, floral hops, mango, peach, resin and pine. Crispy, yet balanced body. Bitter finish with grapefruit, hops and pine. Excellent IPA.
