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.

zgaier (1673) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Can. Pours a clear orange gold with a white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is bitter up front, nice citrus, pine, hops, grapefruit notes with some caramel leading to a very bitter, dry finish. Enjoyable IPA

freekyp (1669) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Pours a murky amber with a slight white head and oodles of lacing. Citrusy resiny west coast classic nose. Flavors of orange, pine and bong water. Medium bodied with a long hoppy, but not overly bitter, finish. A fine single IPA.

zizzybalubba (1626) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2011
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with a frothy almost white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. The flavor does not disappoint; bitter grapefruit and pine needles are the most noticeable flavors with just a touch of spiciness from the hops. The beer is as balanced as I would want it to be while still showcasing the hops. Very well done.

charule (1619) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2014

Emeister84 (1609) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2013
Pine, grass, and citrus fruit on the nose, along with subtle caramel notes. Clear dark orange with a mostly lasting, splotchy, white head. Bitter with a touch of malty sweetness. Medium body, lively carbonation, and finishes with aggressive yet quick, snappy hops that linger for quite some time.

strongpieman (1601) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle. Powerful floral hop aroma. Clear golden beer with a nice white head that clings to the glass. Sharp bitterness with some spice in the lingering finish. Overall a very good IPA that I will go back for lots of flavor.

drsordr (1592) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2015
Draft pour dark gold with orange hue and moderate white head. Nose good pine, resin, floral hop. Taste moderate bitter up front, then floral and papaya. Later palate light dank hop. Lighter bitter finish. Nice nose and reasonable flavor.

rdixon77 (1591) - Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Solid IPA that was bit more on orange-citrus side than the spicy side. Orange-colored with floral hop nose. The taste was well balanced - strong citrus with grass and bread in there too. easy to drink. Very passable IPA.

Beerathon (1590) - 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!
