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.

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.

sudsmeister (66) - Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2011
This is less hoppy and more malty than most IPAs I have tried. Still, a nice balance. Pours a pale amber with a quickly settling head. Finish is on the dry side. Alcohol well hidden. Goes down easy. Nice.

GMCC2181 (1557) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle via stateline. Poured into a snifter, amber colored orange, decent head. Danky aroma of hops on the nose. Reminds me of a "wet" hopped brew. Taste isnt bitter but still hoppy. Flowers, a little danky/wet hop taste. Well balanced, easy to drink. Body: Light, low/medium carbonation. Overall: Nice IPA, that I would drink/buy again. Thanks to Matt for the recommendation.

Gription79 (2683) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 3, 2011
12oz bottle
Aroma: citrus, pine, toasted malt, floral
Taste: resin, citrus, toasty malts, caramel
Not a bad IPA, but a little out of balance. This is a very resinous IPA.

emacgee (4426) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours soft golden amber with two fingers of sticky white head. Very resinous and fresh nose, lots of citrus zest and a hint of pine with a very oily hop profile. Dry and zesty palate with a very resinous and oily hop character. Citrus rind bite and a very light sweetness.

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Love the label design, especially the text on the left side. Nice-looking beer, too; bright gold with a frothy-foamy head. Has some bright flavors and aromas. Lots of snappy fruit (lemon, grapefruit, tangerine) and evergreens (pine, spruce). It’s also spicy, floral and grassy. Malts are nutty, bready and cracker-like, with a caramel-like sweetness at its core. Somewhat bold, but also balanced. Solid beer.

sloth (2663) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Thin white head with fair retention and decent lace. Lightly hazy gold colored ale. nose is gentle with spicy hops, light citrus and faint malts. Lightly medium body, nice carbonation, lil oily. Nice balance of citrusy hop flavors and light caramel malts, lil grainy and bready, light earthyness. Finishes fairly dry, lightly fruity.Easy quaffer for the ABV. Bottle from statelineliquors.
