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.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle from Scott. Aroma of ripe grapefruit, as well as some in the taste, but this one falls flat on the palate. Bitter waves, which leave me unimpressed. Good idea, but unexecuted. Okay beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice appearance head that lasted Nice citrus aroma. But flavor is harsh and not very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rrauth (1115) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle. Powerful hop aroma. Light orange pale crystal clear color with light tan head. Lacing Down the whole glass. Super bitter taste and long aftertaste. Awesome beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sherm1016 (1110) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2013
12oz can at DMK. Pours a clear amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, some orangy citrus. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, biscuit, muted citrus hops, some pine, some grass, with a light bitter finish that lingers for a little while. A nice IPA.

HeistAlmighty (1109) - 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

mikedR (1068) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2013
Respectable IPA. Pine and grapefruit aroma which carries over to flavor. Nice malt backbone (as foreshadowed by a beautiful copper color pour), coyly hidden under massive bitterness. As such, I disagree that this is a balanced IPA. It's West Coast style, old school, all the way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerathon (1066) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Big citrus nose with a bit of a unique sweetness that was unexpected. Earthy hoppy flavors come through slightly. Not heavy on the tongue. Orange with great lacing. Very good!

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2012
pours clear golden yellow with white head. Very floral aroma with a little citrus. Nice even hops, not too bitter. Very good.

degbert (1060) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Can. Pours a dark amber wit a high, creamy, large-grained off-white head. Nose is a nice balance of floral and citrus, with orange and hollyhock predominant. Bitter on the front of the tongue, but with an oddly hollow mid-palate. I just don’t get much beyond the initial burst of hops. Finish is light and a bit flaccid. Enh.

Hangover (1056) - 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.
