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.

Six pack of cans from Julio’s. This is a hazy light amber brew. Frothy off-white head into the glass. Strong aroma of spice and spruce. Flavor is malty up front with layers and layers of bitterness. Slightly muddled, with a very bitter finish. Not very refreshing at all, but a solid IPA.

RedSox2004 (1426) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Clear golden amber with a two-finger creamy head that dissipated quickly bu left very nice lacing. Aromas of citrus - mostly grapefruit - and pine with generous caramel malt for a backbone. Caramel sweetness up front gives way quickly to the sharp hop profile, dominated by the grapefruit with the pine in the background. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a crisp bitter finish.

Hop nosh is a brassy hazy beer with a fine head of small white bubbles. the Aroma is of floral hops and a bit of natural sweetness. Taste is more natural sweetness on the front with a bit of hop bite. The body is fluid and lively. a very nice beer.

Big tan/white head, nice retention great lacing clear golden amber... grapefruity fairly pungent green hop aroma... very green, tastes like the hops are added very very late, like chewing on a hop, grapefruity, piney... Dry medium body lightly creamy mouthfeel fairly carbonated...

12ox bottle from a six pack that cost me $7.99. Clear orange color, creamy head, good lacing. Smells like caramel and orange rind, not bad at all. Flavor is hoppy, citrus orange rind but has a pretty good malt backing to it. Overall, not bad and a good value but I am s biased towards west coast IPA’s.

Pleasant aggressive hop aroma, fairly predictable flavor and color profile for a flagship IPA. Nevertheless, this is a tasty brew - and in our area at least, a very affordable higher alcohol IPA.

Bottle. Pours a very orangey pale amber with a medium-sized off white head. Aroma is heavy on the hops -- very resinous, with some citrus and pineapple. Flavor is balanced. Lots of caramel malt and resinous, citrusy hops. Thick mouthfeel.
