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.

Aromatic and restrained for an IPA. Not the regular brassy hop flavor. An ipa a little more friendly for the masses, but sure to please the devout followers. High points include the round palate, the floral aroma, and the nicely balanced malt. ---This rating is likely a compilation of my and my roommates' musings over our latest beer pick up. We are all self-proclaimed beer connoisseurs. All ratings and comments are decided through deliberation, discussion, and (frequently) bloodshed. Let this not be in vain.

Pours very cloudy yellowish with good tan head and lacing. Aroma is orange-ish and malty. Very mellow taste, not bitter or dry. Good body. Very good, will try again.

Not too bad for an easy evening IPA, not too strong, not too light. I'd get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark clear gold with a huge rocky white head. Aroma is melon, citrus and pine. Taste follows and adds lots of grapefruit. Soft pillowy mouthfeel. Nice.

not sure of the freshness of this one, but it’s what they were serving at Canfest. Medium bitterness and florals. Understated hop aroma and flavor as far as the citrus and pine is concerned. OK, but definitely nothing that makes me see the high rank. i like the Trader Session Ipa MARKEDLY BETTER.

I cannot say anything bad about this IPA it is a fantastic IPA. Hop nosh has a remarkable flavor with a nice bite hop nosh tastes like grapefruit and a little bit of lemon. I rated this high because it is a great IPA and one of my very favorites hard to drink just one

MaBeer1972 (1292) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Six pack of cans from Julio’s. This is a hazy light amber brew. Frothy off-white head into the glass. Strong aroma of spice and spruce. Flavor is malty up front with layers and layers of bitterness. Slightly muddled, with a very bitter finish. Not very refreshing at all, but a solid IPA.

Cloudy orange color with big chunky white head. Nice resiny hop aroma. Good malt body and resiny hop finish. Delicious.
