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.

BLADT (627) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle pour. Clean gold-amber in glass with a thick, off-white head. Nose is reserved: earthy, basement notes with mellowed hops, some orange rind. Very nice, I just wish more pronounced. Taste picks up the slack. The subtle orange from the nose is in full force, along with a robust, grainy earthiness. A good helping of sugar cookies in the middle. Ends bitter. A worthy export.

gururyan (611) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 24, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2013 Poured from bottle into snifter, clear golden color with healthy head. Smells quite flowery like a farmhouse saison, yet still very hoppy. Reminiscent of SNís Hoptimum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ADDITIONAL: Having some more tonight, and damn...I really like the nose on this. Itís growing on me quickly even more so I had to bump the rating a little.

Really nice overtones on this IPA. Very great flavor of hops and a wonderful aftertaste too.

Dodgrblu (610) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 23, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Sacramento. Fairly thin, disappearing head, nice bitterness. Bonus point for the renewable power stamp.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Draft, gold pour with a thin white head. Nose is sweet and piney. Taste is sweet malt body with a bitter hop finish thatís mostly piney. Not bad but a bit sweet.

nathan30533 (605) - Dahlonega, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2012
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.

Bottle - cloudy orange pour, strong aroma and taste of pine with some sweetness mixed in. Slightly metallic on the finish.

Bricks (597) - Delaware, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Struck me as your typical IPA, just a little more bitter and a little more smooth.

ADesenberg (597) - Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle: pours a very light copper, or a very dark golden color with a nice off white head. Aroma is grapefruity. The taste is, nice... not overpowering. It still has a great solid bitterness, and the familiar cirtus. But there is a solid malty or breadiness that keeps it all in check. Tasty. I just picked this up at random at the store the other day, and have to say... it was a solid lucky pick. Good Beer.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours a dark golden color with a off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is tropical fruits and a really sweet malt backbone. Taste is grapefruit and mango, strong caramel backbone that helps balances out the bitter grapefruit taste, then it goes back to a lingering bitter finish. Solid IPA .
