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

Bought this on a whim and am pretty happy with the purchase. For the price, I wasnít expecting much, but this is a really solid IPA. Tastes fresh with all the usual "notes" that everyone else has already gone into. Pretty poundable, even with itís 7.3% abv. I could go back to this one and probably will as itís tasty and respectably priced for what youíre getting.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste pine, citrus, lightly bitter. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The nose is malty with some floral hoppiness. The taste started with a mild maltiness next comes moderate floral and citrus hops. Finishes clean and dry. Nicely balanced beer. Fruity and refreshing.

Westkyoto77 (502) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2014
On tap at Barracuda Tavern, Boston. Nose of soapy hops, some fresh pine. Standard IPA look of dark amber. A little astringent, perhaps some detergent in the palate, but nice citrus flavours and a sweetish clean aftertaste. Taste more mellow fruit than pine, with a touch of honey detectable. Thought all American IPAs were beginning to taste the same to me, but this was a nice change up. Solid stuff

Very light orange in color. So much so that it appears to be a light ale. Little white head. A strong hop aroma. A citrusy hops but a light flavor.

Vir4030 (496) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Found as "Hop Notch IPA" in Chicago. Pours from a bottle into a DFH IPA glass. Good color medium-to-light gold and clear. THick head with big bubbles, very nicely holding up. Iím sure the glass gave this extra head, but I think thatís the point so no points off there. Aroma has a distinct apricot and alcohol and a bit sour like a lager. Nice hoppy flavor, a bit bitter dry finish.

Dark amber color, huge foamy head leaves lots of lacing. Pine aroma. Medium body, malty and sticky oily mouthfeel. Tastes pine, hops bitter. Pretty good.

Nice IPA. Piney hops character in the aroma and flavor. Iím more a fan of citrus hops, but this one isnít in-your-face with the piney hops, so I really enjoyed it.
