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

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.

Well well well.....on tap at the local steak house. Served in an NON icy glass...the world must be ending. medium piney nose. Hop bite is flower in body and soft. A lovely deep amber in the glass. A solid IPA which is neither in your face with hops or a watery excuse for an IPA. I had two. Alcohol sneaks up on you in the parking lot.

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.

Six pack of cans from Julios. 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.

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!

Pours a nice clean orange color with a modest, dense white head atop it. Hopes can be smelled as soon as you pour it in the glass. Huge citrus notes - lots of grapefruit acidity and orange sweetness, light caramel malt late in the nose but the hops really dominates it. Strong grapefruit up front with a nice pine middle and a sweet orange citrus finish. Body is modest with low carbonation. Overall a very tasty brew. I wish there were just a tad bit more carbonation to deliver a slight bite to compliment the grapefruit and pine notes.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2012
THOUGHTS: Lots of hops but lots of balance, too. Nice malt backbone, but still lots and lots of hops. But the hops are never overwhelming. Rather complex hop profile. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, medium to dark, brownish orange with great carbonation and and average, off-white head that kept a nice sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel malt; moderate to heavy pine, resin, grapefruit and orange hops; and mango. The initial flavor was slight to lightly sweet and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was light to moderately sweet and moderate to nearly heavily bitter. There was caramel malt, orange hops, grapefruit hops, resinous hops, pine hops, and a little tropical fruit hops. The medium body was a little oily and then dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is bready malts, some tangy melon and some dank, resiny, piney hops.

The flavor is a little sweet fruit with a big resiny almost charred bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a little watery.

Overall, a pretty solid IPA. A little more sweet fruit and less char in the flavor to better balance it and a little more body and this would be excellent.
