On draft. This knows exactly what it wants to be -- an easy drinking, pretty hoppy, session IPA -- and it pulls it off well. Light and dry, but the hop flavor jumps in quickly, building up to a moderately bitter finish. Absolutely great on a hot day. Bebum (1018) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Clear, deep gold.
Medium full body, flavorful, lean, bubbly mouthfeel, average length.
Bitter, dry, crisp.
Very resiny, malty.
Aggressively hoppy and dry but flavors make it worthwhile.

Can pour into nonic pint glass from Andover Liquors. Appearance is hazy orange with yellow and green tinges, minimal sparkle, small white fizzy head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is strong orange, mangoes, grapefruit, pine. Taste is sweet tropical and citrus fruits, mild late earthy bitterness. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, lively carbonation and sweet over bitter finish. Overall, nice juicy flavors and taste/aroma strong for a session. Good job.

Pours a nice robust amber from a tap. Crisp grapefruit aroma unfortunately washes away in the mouth, replaced by a typical session watery muddle. Good beer to start with at least. Chalumeaux (1570) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Poured from tap at Spotlight clear copper color with a nice white head. Aromas of caramel malt bread light floral notes and pine. Grapefruit and orange zest nice hops and a balanced finish.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-golden transparent yellow to bronze color. Light carbonation runs up to fill a one finger white foamy head. Dissipates at a nice pace. Messy foamy lace.
The aroma starts off with a big bittersweet blend of grapefruit, orange zest and juicy pulp. Low use of malts.
The flavor yields to the sweet side initially and then as it warms blends the bitter portion of the citrus rind in with a light pine. Moveable sweet to bitter citrus and piney aftertaste flowing into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body exacting it’s appropriate crushability. Bitterness is there but doesn’t distract from the flow on my tongue.
Overall, my first beer from Notch and they’re brewing a beer worth crushing on a hot Summer’s day. BVery (10609) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Tap at Renaissance in Foxboro. Clear gold pour. White dense head. Mild citrus hops. Juicy sweet taste but not too sweet. Very easy drinking. Yum. LilBeerDoctor (3997) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Can. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel malt, bitter hops. Flavor of light fruits, citrus, grapefruit, bitter finish. Light, not super hoppy, but drinkable. Decent session but nothing special.

Can at home, unfortunately more than a year old. Aroma is fruity hops, tropical fruits, citrus, grapefruit, some piney notes and a soft touch of pale malt. Flavour is light sweet and medium bitter. Body is light to medium. Despite the oldness the hoppiness has been surprisingly conserved. Note: Must try a fresher sample some day. ClarkVV (6759) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Draught and cans since debut, most recently at Middle East Upstairs on 5/11/16.
Deep copper-golden beer is clear with a big white head showing modest retention.
Light pine, caramel, sourdough and grapefruit show a pretty straightforward, west coast IPA but the aromatics are strong for its size. Clean, with some grassiness and pepperiness.
Moderately sweet, with caramel, pine and grapefruit all mirroring the aroma. Gets almost too bitter but then relents, leaving honey in its place to slowly return to balance. Brief interludes of juicy pineapple but mostly lots of grapefruit, grass and pepper. Strong carbonation with a malty texture and no alcohol or flaw. Quite intense for its size.
