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.

Bottle. Powerful floral hop aroma. Clear golden beer with a nice white head that clings to the glass. Sharp bitterness with some spice in the lingering finish. Overall a very good IPA that I will go back for lots of flavor.

Beaver (1647) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2011
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.

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.

Finhead (1621) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Clear, deep amber-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. The aroma has orange rind with light pine and some faint cereal. It has a medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a relatively mild finish.

GMCC2181 (1591) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle via stateline. Poured into a snifter, amber colored orange, decent head. Danky aroma of hops on the nose. Reminds me of a "wet" hopped brew. Taste isnt bitter but still hoppy. Flowers, a little danky/wet hop taste. Well balanced, easy to drink. Body: Light, low/medium carbonation. Overall: Nice IPA, that I would drink/buy again. Thanks to Matt for the recommendation.

mikedR (1561) - 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
