UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Amazingly outstanding IPA! Hop Notch pours a very dark golden color with a beautiful off-white, cascading head. The nose is very inviting, with notes of spicy and floral hops, pine, grass, sweet malts and a touch of lemon. The flavors are very well-balanced and delicious, and the body is smooth, creamy and extremely drinkable. This is one of those IPA’s that I could sit hang with all night. Notes from the flavor include dry hops, grass, lightly toasted bread, grapefruit, lemon, pine and a touch of sweet malt. The finish is dry and spicy.

Can. Hazy orange in color with a whitish head. Sweet ripe fruityness in aroma. Some orange marmalade too. Bittersweet taste. Bit on the sweeter side, otherwise decent. Oranges and sweetness in aftertaste again.

The aroma is hops, citrus and pine. Some malt presence in there too. Pours a clear yellow with a brownish orange tint. Big white head, mostly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is a light bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. A very decent beer!

Didn't have an overly aggressive aroma but the first sip was positive. Has a bit of a bite and a bit of aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
