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.

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.

Delicious, simple enough. Tons of citrus notes on the aroma. Grapefruit like crazy here. It’s just awesome, exactly like what an IPA needs to smell like. The taste is just nuts. Tons of bitterness right off the bat. Lots of grapefruit juice here. Super smooth. Insanely good. Theres no way to describe it without just tasting it. One of my favorite IPA’s. Try it asap if you haven’t. Cheers.

It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of citrus, pine hops with some earthiness. The taste was of citrus and floral hops with caramel malts. Thanks Hayduke.

Flaska@Monks Sveavägen. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med fingertjockt skum. Doft av citrus och ananas. Fruktig och kraftig beska i smaken. Lite tunn munkänsla. Bästa hitills från detta bryggeri.

Pours straw yellow from the bottle with a thin white head. Aroma is strong, spicy. Taste just belts you in the face with hops, and they are strong and spicy. The backend burns down your throat. Not bad but maybe a little too strong for my liking.

Malty cereal aroma with some orange/grapefruit citrus. Pours thick orange with a thin white head. Nice flavor with a cereal finish.

Poured from 12oz bottle. A wonderful shade of burnt sienna with a ivory head worth noting. Hints of pine and lemongrass open the senses. Well balanced hop profile with a slight bite in the finish. A well rounded IPA good for any occasion. --you've been Dubbed.

355ml bottle. Looked unfiltered. Citrus and pine aromas. Citrus hop taste, reasonably well balanced with some caramel malt. Average body. Nothing ground breaking, but a solid workhorse IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from New Frontier Market, Eugene. Pours a golden orange, some white head. Nose crisp and citrusy, just a hint of pine. Body full and lively, finish has a resiny bitterness, but really complex, a tangy sweetness as well. Surprised at how much is going on, especially for the price. Not to be slept on.
