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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled on 5/31/2012. A - Great dark amber body. Very clear with tons of rising bubbles. 3 finger high off white head settles down to a one finger high cap. Nice amount of lacing. S - Grapefruit and spice. Its actually pretty amazing how this beer blends together the sweetness and the juiciness off the hops with some bready and spicy malts. T - Juicy grapefruit, orange juice, bready caramel malt and a spicy finish. Aftertaste is just amazingly grapefruit heavy. Not overly aggressive but it has a nice bitterness to it. Mouth feel is slick and coating. O - A nice IPA. Not the best, but damn tasty and refreshing. Really hits the grapefruit notes but still maintains a nice malt backbone.

Cloudy orange amber. Decent lace. Aroma is orange and pineapple, with a little pine. Really fruity taste, malt coming through. Very tasty, earthy and solid. Well rounded. Good beer!

Light, bright orange color with small white head and nice lacing. Aroma has wonderful, huge, citrusy hops. Flavor is super bitter, then sweet, with grapefruit and pine, and a woody malt finish. Love it all around. Pretty good price too.

What a wonderful IPA. After the pour you get a little bit of a head and a good golden color. The aroma is of sweet, sweet hops and the taste follow suit. Little lacing but mighty enjoyable IPA.

12 oz can from DMK with sherm1016. Pours a rich yellow with modest head. Mild hops in the nose; mild bite in the taste. Nice mild bitter finish. A much better than average IPA.

Pours a clear straw color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel, and some light pine hops too. Flavor of very strong citrus hops with a nice amount of caramel malt balancing the hops. Quite refreshing.

smaynard6000 (659) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with minimal off-white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma with a touch of pine. Bitter hoppy flavor with long lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied. A very good IPA- reminiscient of Heady Topper.
