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.

Bottle. Powerful floral hop aroma. Clear golden beer with a nice white head that clings to the glass. Sharp bitterness with some spice in the lingering finish. Overall a very good IPA that I will go back for lots of flavor.

Aromas of resin, pine, and hints of citrus/grapefruit, some bread like malt as well. Clear golden body with loads of head. Great lacing and retention. Light medium honey like sweetness with a medium high bitterness. Pretty nice IPA all around. Might pick this up again a few times. Probably no time soon though.

Pours a golden yellow. Aroma of ripe green hops. Saaz or other Noble variety. Taste is candied sugar with a slow building peppery spice to balance the sweetness that still wins out in the end. I haven't had an IPa with these hops before. Very interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear amber appearance with a large, off white head and good lacing. Appealing aroma of pine and citrus. Hop flavors are a bit more mellow than anticipated; more floral and herbal. Modest sweetness, but bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with an average length finish.

Nearly clear amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head. Aroma of juicy citrus, fruity and pine hops, some biscuit, caramel, spicy hops maybe a touch of pineapple and mineral water. Flavor is sweet caramel up front, toast, cereal, spicy hops coming in rather quick, followed by a little toffee and melon, citrus, and pine hops to the fairly bitter finish. Medium body with a creamy to syrupy entry, more syrupy feel after that and a medium strength, slightly sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, I like the juicy, fruity hops up front.

Deep gold-light copper, clear, off white head. Aroma of piney hops, biscuity malt. Flavor: grainy/biscuity malt, piney-resiny hops with mild citrus, clean and crisp with a little lingering bitterness in the finish. Refreshing and well- made.

Mep3222 (1099) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Great aroma of floral and citrus hops. Some grapefruit, peachy citrus like hops with a nice malty backbone. Taste is malty with the same hop profile but maybe a bit of piney resinous finish. Almost tastes more like a double ipa. Full flavored and very good. A bit more bitter finish than I like but an ipa I would definitely buy again. I like the aroma better than the flavor, but if you want a mix of piney and citrus this one works well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Jungle Jims / Eastgate - Clear dark copper amber with a snow-white head that drops to a head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is caramel malt that fights its way to the finish before finally being overtaken by pursuing pine hops. Both bitter and sweet linger deep through the finish. The delay makes it interesting, as well as recommendable.

Tasted from can. Pours a clear gold with white head. Big citrus aroma with hint of pine. Taste is citrus hops, pine, flowers. Just enough malt to balance it well. Nice crisp dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle - grapefruit and resin nose. Sip is less specific in its citrus qualities. Fairly bitter. malty backbone: yes.
