COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. Itís balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottled 6/09/12. Enjoyed on IPA day! Pours orange with a small off-white meringue-y head. Citrus zest aroma with sugary orange, papaya, grapefruit rind, and pine. The flavor is sweet citrus and pine, bitter earthy notes of bark and dirt, with a bitter citrus pith finish. Verging on creamy, with a dry finish. Nice. [1125]

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 donít get much beyond the initial burst of hops. Finish is light and a bit flaccid. Enh.

Bootle from provisions for $1.99. Clear golden pour with white head. Grassy and Piney aroma. Nice sweet hop profile with nice malty finish.

HeistAlmighty (1133) - 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

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Pours orange, white head....this is an IPA thatís relatively complex...not just bitter and dry, but floral, citrusy with a significant body to it. The bitterness is still there, and itís well places, but the other parts of the body are there as well. Less sessionable and better for one or two glasses because of the body. Very good beer.

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

Near perfect. Drinking with jambalaya. Copper with incrdbly sticky white head. Aroma of hops and malt and citrus and more hops. Perfect creamy balance.

jhamp9 (1080) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Clear orange pour with a nice white head and great lacing. Aromais really nice sweet citrusy hops, a little toffee, and pine. Taste is pine up front with slight sweetness and then grapefruit in the finish. Nice bitterness. Medium light body. Good beer.

EtTuCthulhu (1077) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 18, 2013
The appearance fuses a hazy orange color with a large off-white head that has a good retention, and the aroma is reminiscent of resin and floral hops the second your nose gets close to the rim of the glass. The taste is quite bitter, a touch sweet, and a touch sour, but the flavor doesnít really balance as a large product; furthermore, the palate combines a sticky texture, bitter finish, soft carbonation, and a medium body.

pours clear golden yellow with white head. Very floral aroma with a little citrus. Nice even hops, not too bitter. Very good.
