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.

Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours an orange color with a slight copper tint. A distinct floral aroma. Taste is very floral and grassy. A bitter IPA aftertaste that didn’t linger. Overall a simple IPA that surprises with a hint of citrus.

Amber color. Sweet malt and hop initial sips. High alc is masked by big malt sweetness. Slightly grapefruity and chewy. Not the first ipa I would reach for, but definitely if I was to recommend a sweet brew. With high hop content.

Great hop aromas. Very good hoppy citrus flavors. Easily one of my favorite single IPA’S.

Beautiful golden amber with a thick head. Lots of lacings. Pine and caramel aromas with bright citrus notes. Caramel body with moderate hop flavors and bitterness. Bitterness lasts thru the finish.

Bottle at D’Agnese’s Trattoria in Akron, OH. Draft in American shaker. Orange-golden yellow pour with thick, lasting white head. Very nice aroma with significant pine, resin, floral, and citrus. Taste similar with the pine and resin dominant. Bitter, but floral finish. Very well balanced with the malts. Medium body, medium carb. Crisp finish.

scarletfire65 (904) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Pours a hazy deep golden, with a fine bone white head, recedes to a thin cap and leaves a lot of thick lacing. Very nice looking pour. The aroma is powerful, with fresh floral hops, spruce, peach, sage. Medium bodied, solid carbonation, slightly sticky, lots of piney, grassy, and orange hop flavors, with a crisp, clean, bright, bitter finish. Doesn’t feel like 7.3%.

ccex (903) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a clear orange with two-finger white head and good lacing. The smell hit me a foot away before the first sip. Aroma is full of caramel malts, citrus hops (especially grapefruit), and some good dank earthiness. Taste is bitter at the start and finish, with lots of sweetness in the middle. Body is medium with below average carbonation. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky and alcohol is mostly hidden. A well balanced IPA I’ll be sure to try again.

Pint on tap. It’s dark yellow, clear, and has good lacing. Bitter, bitter bitter, though. I kind of disagree with the description...I didn’t find it exceptionally malty or complex, actually. Kind of a basic IPA, just fine, but you’re not missing anything.

I don’t want to say it, but this is not a great IPA. Very one-dimensional experience and most of it is dry grapefruit. Lots of alcohol on the finish. Uinta, I know you can do better than this!
