12 oz. can says Hop Notch. Appearance: small white head, great lace, straw color, clear. Aroma: floral hops, orange peel, wheat, caramel. Palate: average carbonation, light body, sticky texture, dry and bitter lasting finish. Taste: caramel sweetness up front, then right into bitterness. Overall, a little unbalanced for me and nothing to stand out in the vast fields of hoppy beers.

Vir4030 (602) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Found as "Hop Notch IPA" in Chicago. Pours from a bottle into a DFH IPA glass. Good color medium-to-light gold and clear. THick head with big bubbles, very nicely holding up. Im sure the glass gave this extra head, but I think thats the point so no points off there. Aroma has a distinct apricot and alcohol and a bit sour like a lager. Nice hoppy flavor, a bit bitter dry finish.

Can (12 oz). As "Hop Notch IPAA". Clear golden/orange with a frothy off-white head and intense lacing. Aroma is of piney hops, grapefruits and malt. Taste is slightly sweet with resinous presence, grapefruits, malt/caramel and light to moderate bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly oily and slightly dry finish. Pretty straightworward, but not bad at all. Drinkable.

Tasted from can. Pours a clear gold with white head. Big citrus aroma with hint of pine. Taste is citrus hops, pine, flowers. Just enough malt to balance it well. Nice crisp dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good beer that is a poor example of style. Reminds me more of an apa. More pine and acidic tastes than bitterness. Slightly watery.
