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.

12 oz - nicely laced, wonderful head of white froth. Looks a little fizzy, but the malt is there. There’s nothing I’d change about this one.

A top notch ipa, pun intended. Bright, clean citrus flavors mixed with a pleasant grassy strawberryness. One of the smoothest, most easy drinking ipa’s i have had in a long time. Really good stuff and reasonably priced, im glad this brewery is starting to get nationwide recognition.

In a 12oz bottle. Tangy sweet hop aroma. Huge nectarine-hop flavor. Finishes with sweetness, sweetness and more sweetness. Hops overwhelm the malts just like you’d expect in a booming West Coast-style IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pours a a bright golden orange, a bit hazy with 2 fingers of lacy head and good carbonation. Aroma is ripe orange, mango, peach, earthy hops and pine. Flavor is lots of sweet citrus up front with a slowly escalating hop bitterness towards the back. Some resiny earthy hops and grapefruit to go with the slightly bitter aftertaste. Some sweetness lingers in between. Definitely a first rate IPA, reminds me a bit of a Bells Two Hearted.

Nice citrus (tangerine/orange) and spicy hop aroma and flavor. Bready and sweet malt flavor. Moderate bitterness.

Nice and light, crisp without that baked bread malt character. Very nice. Hop character is citrus, pine and very clean, no metallic notes at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Pours a clear light copper color. Decent tight head. Aroma is hoppy upfront with a grapefruit and orange peel note. Taste follows the Aroma with some hops bitterness hanging around. This is a great hop foreword beer. Medium mouth feel. Good price aswel $9 for a 6 pack
