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.

Orange-golden pour with a white head. The aroma has some pine and floral notes as well as a good bit of biscuit malt. The flavor is a mix of orange citrus with some pine and biscuit malt. Low bitterness with a good bit of sweet malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft from Southern Growlers. A very drinkable and balanced IPA that is not as bitter as you would expect from it's listed IBUs.

RedSox2004 (1233) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Clear golden amber with a two-finger creamy head that dissipated quickly bu left very nice lacing. Aromas of citrus - mostly grapefruit - and pine with generous caramel malt for a backbone. Caramel sweetness up front gives way quickly to the sharp hop profile, dominated by the grapefruit with the pine in the background. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a crisp bitter finish.

Very good IPA, smells of hops as soon as I popped the can, the pine/citrus was well balanced and not overbearing.

Nice floral aroma, clear copper pour with a pillowy white head. Taste is pine and citrus, with a resinous finish. The finish is quick, but not dry. A solid IPA.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Aroma is strong and hoppy. Lots of grapefruit initially and it becomes rather catty at times as well. Some dough and pale malt sweetness. Pours golden, hazy, decent creamy head and lace. The flavor starts with some grapefruit, moves through some cat and some feety funk, pale malt backbone, lightly sweet. Long lingering hop notes. Nice and hoppy, light malt just how I like it, but the hops are a little too catty. Not bad.

Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours golden/amber with a thin white head. Nose is oily and resiny. Pine and citrus. Similar taste. A bit too resiny for me.
