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.

Bought this on a whim and am pretty happy with the purchase. For the price, I wasnít expecting much, but this is a really solid IPA. Tastes fresh with all the usual "notes" that everyone else has already gone into. Pretty poundable, even with itís 7.3% abv. I could go back to this one and probably will as itís tasty and respectably priced for what youíre getting.

Great golden amber color, nice nose, lotsa pine and citrus with ginger saying Iím here on your tongue... here comes mouthy malt and some nice lacing. Very nice IPA... best fresh naturally.

Awesome pine citron aroma with spruce grapefruit orange rind and light biscuit malt flavors. Finishes on the bitter side of balanced. A total hop bomb for a single IPA. Drinks like a double. For me that is a good thing.

JMerritt (1816) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottled. Super hazy/chunky yellowed-brown with a giant, light tan head. Big pine cone aroma with sweet grapefruit and orange rind - generally heavy on the citrus fruits but with a definite spruce front end. Heavily bitter flavor, one that grows slightly in intensity through the flavor profile, will a little white malt backbone, but donít kid yourself - this is hop centric, big time. A bit of white pepper in the finish, which ends just a touch watery (which, surprisingly, is a bit refreshing).

Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a very nice dank citrus hop. Flavor is also a nice dank pine hop. Very hop forward and bitter. This is a great drinking IPA.

theisti (3259) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 10, 2014
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Whole Foods in Coral Springs, Florida. Best before 11/02/14. The pour is a hazed orange yellow golden with a well formed light tan head. The aroma is dank resin, rounded citrus fruit and floral. The taste is peanut shells initially, then opens to floral, bitter resin and finishes with grass. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and dry floral grass finish. Smelled better than it tasted, perhaps not so fresh.
