Pours orange/amber. Head disappears rather quickly but good lacing. Smells of pine and mango. Taste grassy, earthy and spruce. Medium body, nice malt sweetness though a tad of resin. Long, lingering herbal, slightly metallic finish. Case expires in one month, this bottle still says Hop Notch. I might have rated it higher had it been fresher. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Brilliant orange/amber colored pour. Plenty of carbonation. Big white head that slowly falls. Plenty of lacing left behind. Big citrusy hop aroma. Some malt and yeast character. Taste is malt with a bit of earth and lemony hops. Machinari_Diem (58) - - FEB 20, 2014
Great hop aroma. Taste is overwhelmingly hoppy with a sweet malt background. Hops used seem like a fresh hop or otherwise wet hop that soured in a bad way. Hops, which are the feature of this beer, come across as swampy. I’ve had better homebrews. raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Money IPA, one of the best I have had. Big hop flavor with a malty background. Dark color for such a bright beer, easy drinking palate without being thin, on the edge of being Imperial, can’t wait to try their double! kassner (1663) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Very nice IPA in a bottle in Southport, NC Lowes. A little darker, plenty of aromatic hops and nice creamy head and lacing.

Can to snifter. pours a fairly clear reddish orange color. large off white head that stays. Typical C hop aroma with a very crackery, honey graham-like malt coming through with a ton of breadiness. Initially a pungent hop flavor that fades quickly to a pithy bitterness. A crackery malt flavor, but not as complex as the nose would indicate, but definitely on the sweet side that I don’t care for in my IPAs these days. Hops seem just grassy in the finish. rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Sweet citrus hop aroma with a light amount of resin. Hazy orange color with a large white head. Moderate bitter beginning that fades in the finish. njnut (486) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Poured from Hop Notch can into tulip. Pours a orange amber with a short lasting white head. Co2 on the softer side. Aroma of grapefruit and grass. Taste is citrus, malt, and pine. The malt comes through a little more than the citrus. Lace on glass after head receded to glass edge. Finish was a bitter citrus. Mouth feel was thin but slick. Enjoyable.

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. VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Found as "Hop Notch IPA" in Williston, VT. - Draft - Poured a nice orangish-amber in color with a small white head. Nice hoppy aroma... piney with citrus. Flavor was citrus/lemon with some pine resin that lingered. Medium dry, bitter finish. Liked it!
