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.

Tap at Owl Farm. Slightly hazy golden pour. The nose is quite bright and fresh. Citrus and a bit of fruit. Bright and fairly resinous. Some orange marmalade and a touch of Spice retro nasally. Nice IPA

Best by 03MAY13 Nice golden with a solid quilt of fine creamy foam. Smells classic west coast: resin, weed, pine, grapefruit and BO. Nice nose. Flavor is up front bitter with a malty (crackers, biscuit and some sweet english crystals) backbone. There is a good resin bitterness with a spicy flavor and some good midpoint purple kush. Medium on nearly full bodied with fine, moderated carb and a watery finish. Nice beer. I probably won’t go out of my way for this one, but would drink on tap locally, particularly with a good spicy meal or pizza.
