UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Fantastic! Best of the best. This is what an IPA should be. Wonderful strong aromas, great bitter hops and loooads of flavor. Great Beer. improvjock (328) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light gold with white head. Floral hops in the aroma. Flavor is dominated by a blend of hop flavor, pretty complex. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Not bad! lhns03 (103) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Big ol’ west coast style hoppy IPA here. Aroma is beautiful with lots of citrus and some darker piney notes. Flavor is well-balanced up front but fades quickly into all hops. A bitter finish with almost metallic notes. Not my style but a good one for the style. hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Ours were labeled Hop Notch and purchased in early January. Pour a light amber with a creamy long lasting off-white head and light lacing. Nose of both floral and citrus hops. Medium in body. Touch of alcohol in mouth feel. Flavor is citrus and herbal. Finish is dry and bitter. Overall OK.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together on facebook chat. This beer is almost clear and is amber gold. A one finger gold tinted head is attractive. A classic citrus aroma is sniffed first but then a little vegetable and pine on the second. Because I don’t like that flavor it is dominating my taste buds. Citrus is under there and I wish it would move forward. The finished was a fizzy flourish that also brought tropical fruit. Not a favorite of mine but a solid beer. jjgmd (2294) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Can. Pours a clear rusty copper gold pour with a small tight head. Nose is deep citrus with shades of pine and resin. Taste is bitter right up front, with more resin and pine that follows, the citrus has a grapefruit backbone. Finish is bitter with moderate lingering of the tasting notes.

Bottle to pint. Very hoppy bitter for a single IPA. Not much else going on. Pretty standard stuff. ElCapitan22 (363) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2014 Pours a cloudy gold/Orange color. Smells of pine, hops, and alcohol. Tastes bitter and of alcohol with a lemony finish.
