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.

@ 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

Shinskyweiser (49) - - FEB 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange. Thick, long lasting off-white head. Smells of grapefruit and pine. Taste very similar to how it smells. Very sharp pine followed by a candy like grapefruit and tangerine. Bitterness lingers but isn't overwhelming. There is a nice resiny finish. Very refreshing beer. Good west coast IPA.

Clear, medium gold, tall head. Full body, dense flavor, rich, low alcohol heat, good carbonation, vibrant and smooth mouthfeel, great balance, lingering aftertaste. Very bitter but more than supported by background sweetness. Very hoppy and equally malty, resiny. Delicious, addictive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
Earlier Rating: 12/21/2014 Total Score: 3.7
Clear amber, tall but loose knit and quickly dissipating head. Slightly earthy nose. Medium body, full flavored, low carbonation and acidity which results in a flat mouthfeel, long aftertaste. Very bitter, overpowering the abundant malt background, resulting in a dry beer with a bitter finish. Hoppy, grapefruity, earthy, malty. Powerfully bitter, very nice drink if you are in the mood for that much bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vyvvy (4540) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Pours clear copper with a large off-white head. The aroma has pineapple, mango, sweet malt, orange, caramel and really nice balance. It has a medium body that is ultra smooth and then has some pretty prickly rough carbonation at the end. The flavor starts with citrus zest, caramel, pine, woodiness, crackers and some spice. The finish is dry and has lots of woody / earthy / tropical hoppy notes. Really nice IPA.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 This is a super hoppy, delicious beer. It?s got one if the best aromas of any beers I?ve had.
