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.

Quick3Beers (984) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Pours a hazy dark amber from a bottle, off-white head, a quick pour left some surprisingly large bubbles. Lots of lacing. Grapefruity/pine aroma, similar flavor with a nice underlying sweet maltiness. Well balanced simple IPA that gets it right.

Disappointing IPA, hoppy but with a muddled profile, lack of distinction in flavors.

After reading "Cheapís" rating on this beer, I knew I had to try it. And it was everything he said he was going to taste like. Hoppy, complex, balanced brew. Can taste the pine and grass hops...nice!!!

Pours a cloudy orange with some sediment and huge white pillowy head leaving great lacing. Aroma is pretty standard fare with citrus and a hint of buttery malts. Taste is.... Iím not sure here. Itís a bit too buttery, malty, and tart . Almost like itís too old, maybe? Maybe itís better fresh - but thereís just too many better IPAs out there to take another risk on this one.

bookman10 (962) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2015
Very good IPA. Pours a clear gold-copper, with smallish head. Strong aroma of hops, citrus. Very bitter flavor, pronounced hops, lots of citrus, with pine and grass. Crisp, clean mouthfeel with bitter finish.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear copper, huge white head, lots of lacing. Nose is sweet caramel and citrus, some pine too. Tastes sweet, a little bitter, gives way to caramel. Really nice and balanced.

12 oz can from neighbor Bob B. - thanks! I hate to say this but I felt overwhelmed and blitzed by the profusion of hops. Pull it back a bit and you might have had a beer worthy of such high ratings, but not this one as it is now. I canít comment on the other flavors because I couldnít taste anything else.

Amber color. Sweet malt and hop initial sips. High alc is masked by big malt sweetness. Slightly grapefruity and chewy. Not the first ipa I would reach for, but definitely if I was to recommend a sweet brew. With high hop content.
