Drought. Reddish amber with creamy beige head that retains long time, hops aroma, sweetish hoppy taste with pine at the background, long sweet finish. Very nice on palate.

Pours a clear rusty copper with a small white head. Aroma is deep citrus with shades of pine. Taste is bitter right up front, with more caramel and pine that follows, the citrus has a grapefruit backbone. Finish is bitter with moderate lingering of the tasting notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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!

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.

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 dont 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.

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. Quaff Score 7 / 10
