Poured a medium orange with a fluffy, lively head. Soft nose go grassy hops. Pleasant in the mouth with nice malt balancing the hops.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 On tap in DC at Kramerbooks Cafe. Cloudy amber pour. Nose holds decent grapefruit, lemon, pine, and earthy hop on the nose, but the flavor tastes too oxidized, with heavy malt presence. Unfortunate, really not impressed. Rerate- draft at Churchkey. Much better, with more lean west coast style hop bitterness with pine sap and touches of white grapefruit. A definite improvement, less oxidation this time around.

Backlog purge. On tap at Standard Pour in Sonora. Gold pour. Heavy biscuity malt palate, not sweet just heavy, with heaps of acidic grapefruit.

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 IPAs 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.

Transfer from BA review on 9-16-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance Served an orange-amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head has fairly good retention, eventually fading to give a nice level of lacing. Smell The aroma is a nice abundance of sweet citrus and some lighter tropical fruit as well as more bitter hop smells of a grapefruit and pine nature. Taste The taste begins with a strong bready base with some light caramel sweetness and a mild grapefruit hop bitterness. As the taste advances further the caramel is lost to lighter fruit flavors in nature. While this occurs so to does the citrus grapefruit bitterness increases. As time advances however the grapefruit hop flavor gives way to a piney hop flavor, which at the end of the taste, leaves a bitter yet fairly balanced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the slightly creamier side with the carbonation level being below average and light. The combination of the two overall, gave it more of a cask beer feel, which was nice for the hoppy and malty flavors of the brew. Overall A pretty nice IPA with a good balance between breadiness, sweetness, and hop. Well worth a try.
