From: Binny's, Bloomingdale, IL
Date: Best by 7/16/2013
Glass: Standard US pint glass

Hop Notch is a solid US IPA from Uinta, focusing on grapefruit-like flavors and bitterness provided by North American hops. The malt base is fairly typical for an IPA, and the hops are the clear focus here. While somewhat generic (like every other US IPA), it's still a quality beer made by brewers who clearly know what they're doing.

Pours a fairly generous head of 2cm, made up of small bubbles, somewhat dense, but primarily dish-soap looking. Retention is about two minutes, above average for the style. The foam descends, leaving good lacing along the sides of the glass, primarily of thin columns with a slight wave-like appearance. The body is a golden yellow color, slightly hazy, with light bringing out brighter yellow-orange hues. Carbonation is visible, though minimal in number and sluggish in movement.

Abundant hop aroma, primarily grapefruit and lesser pine, hints of other citrus and bitterness, with a backdrop of slightly biscuit-like and light caramel malts. Hops are mostly bright, slightly dank, and at the forefront of this beer.

Front of tongue picks up grapefruit and lemon citrus on a bed of faint biscuit and light caramel malt. Mid-palate is of citrusy, slightly flowery hops, with strong grapefruit notes and lesser pine resin, guava, and passion fruit. Back of palate picks up strong bitterness, grapefruit, unripe guava, slightly biscuit-like malt. Aftertaste of long-lingering bitterness, with very bitter grapefruit over somewhat bland biscuit-like malts.

Beer is medium to medium-light in body, with carbonation of medium-low intensity. This leads to a mouthfeel that is slightly foamy, never prickly, but also somewhat smoothly stagnant. A bit more carbonation would do a good deal for this beer, or at least this bottle. Closes quite dry, with medium-level stickiness on the palate.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into an Allagash cervoise glass. Best before 5 June 2014.

A: Thick creamy head. Pellucid bronze body. Sticky lacing.

S: Grassy and herbal. Subdued.

T/M: Thick and malty, with odd bursts of berries and herbs and lemon peel.

O: To be fair, I'm coming off an Enjoy By, but this still seems a subpar IPA. Aside from nice fruity notes, it's kind of dull.

A- Hazy light orange with a thin head that laces.

S- Piney, citrus, and grassy.

T- Resinous and piney upfront. Citrus, oak, and grass flavors make an appearance in the middle followed by a sharp dry bitterness that lingers.

M- Medium bodied and very resinous with moderate-low carbonation.

O- A very pine forward IPA with a lingering bitterness. It's very solid and straight forward.
