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.

wxman (1538) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with a big full rocky white head that laces and stays. Mild pine cone aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, grapefruit and bread. Hop bitterness is certainly up front as well, but not as much as 82 IBU would indicate. Quite good; refreshing and balanced.

TEJA (1536) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
Sampled at SBWF 2013. Semi lasting beige head. Almost clear golden color. Balanced aroma of both hops and a medium caramell malt. Big and fresh hop taste that is balanced by a smooth caramell. Also a balanced bitterness to give a fine IPA.

Psytron (1533) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Smell of hops. Golden colour, high white head. Aroma of hops, mango. Sweet. Lively carbon.

mikedR (1532) - 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

italarican (1520) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with medium khaki head. Aroma is a bit mild of pine, crystal malt, and orange peel. Flavor is heavy of orange peel backed by pine. Lots of bitter citrus rind. Fairly solid IPA.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Found as "Hop Notch IPA" in Williston, VT. - Draft - Poured a nice orangish-amber in color with a small white head. Nice hoppy aroma... piney with citrus. Flavor was citrus/lemon with some pine resin that lingered. Medium dry, bitter finish. Liked it!

Scrapersnbeer (1504) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Knotty, piney, resinous aroma indicates a strong, bitter IPA. Glowing hazy orange does not contradict that prediction. Flatly bitter with a good malt contrast that tries very hard to balance the beer out. A solid IPA headin towards the heavy extreme.
