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.

Brilliant apricot. Citrusy piney aroma. Taste- biscuity malt and slightly resinous, tropical fruit and citrus flavors. Nicely balanced. Solid IPA. I'd buy it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

DenverLogan (856) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Poured from my home keg from Argonaut. Pours amber gold with large head in a Scotch Silly chalice. Aroma of light malt sweetness, grains, hops and citrus. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich malts, grains, straw hops, hay, earth, minerals. Overall rich, flavorful, and decent enough for multiple pours!

Bottle. I usually end up rating about the same as everyone else, but I am far from think this is a 97. Maybe I will have to try again, but this one was unforgettable and the taste was slightly off...maybe the heavy malt profile instead of hops? Nope this one was not for me.

Clear, light copper pour. Finger of off white foamy head. Nose is pine cones and grapefruit. Bitter. Middle is bread, caramel, and light wood. Finish goes out bitter and lingering. Good.
