Gold orange. Creamy head. Strong fruity candy, powdery resin. Nice aroma. Same taste, with pine citrus. Mild malty but clean and hoppy. Strong bitter. Good balance.Full body, nice character, all around nice IPA.

Knotty, piney, resinous aroma indicates a strong, bitter IPA. Glowing hazy orange does not contradict that prediction. Flatly bitter with a good malt contrast that tries very hard to balance the beer out. A solid IPA headin towards the heavy extreme.

Can at the Lincoln Wine Bar. Pine and fruits: peach and grapefruit. A little fizzy to me--I donít like it as much as their Detour, but a solid beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with some earthy notes. Flavor is strong of the citrus hops up front that leads to the floral hops and caramel malts. Decent bitter finish as well.

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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Honey orange color, nice deep head (out of the bottle, that probably makes a difference). It leaves a lovely lacing on the glass.
Aroma is serious pine hop, very resinous and pungent.
The taste is equal parts spicy pine hops and earthy malt. Itís nothing revolutionary but itís damn nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
