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.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Copper-amber pour, lovely thick pillowy white head dissipates into a medium ring and retains gobs of lacing down the glass. Aroma exhibits lots of pine and citrus, bready. Flavor grassy, caramel, sharply bitter. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, almost silky; nice. I don’t think the malt -quite- stands up to the hops here and so I think this is a nice beer but I don’t find the balance to be quite right. Tasty, though.

Bottle poured a slightly hazy orange hue w/ a frothy beige head and very nice lacing. Big aromas of grass, citrus, and hay. Initial light sweet with a light to moderate bitter finish of short duration. Taste is grapefruit and pine. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, and a warming alcohol dry finish.

stchloe (784) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Disappointing IPA, hoppy but with a muddled profile, lack of distinction in flavors.

ryecatcher (773) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nice deep orange with a medium white head that dissipated quickly,nice lacing though. Nose is slightly malty,but then pineapple and resinous hops. Medium bodied and surprisingly fresh tasting for a bottle of IPA that is probably 2 months past its prime (bottled in August of 2012), with some grapefruity notes mingled with the malts and some tropical fruit, then a lingering bitter finish. Nice IPA.

garrison (768) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2014
This is an outstanding IPA (India Pale Ale) with an upfront citrus-hop blend taste that was a lasting flavor with a pleasant finish!
