Holy cow. This is an exceptional IPA. Very floral and packs a great bitterness punch. Seems higher than the 82 IBU listed, but in a good way. Highly recommended.

Beautiful light copper / dark orange color. Fantastic hop aroma - balanced and not overwhelmingly bitter, piney, floral, or citrusy. A perfect aroma if there ever was one. Tatse is initially wonderful for hop lovers - more earthy and fruity than piney, then oh-so-slightly bitter towards the end, but more vegetative with citrus and floral undetones. Feel is perfect from my can poured into a slightly chilled pint glass. As close to perfection as I have tasted.

Beautiful color on this beer from a 12oz bottle. Cloudy apricot color. Smell is hops with a side of hops. Taste is hops up front with a smooth malty finish. Just a good beer to drink. It drinks kind of like a double. Mouth feel is great.

This hop nosh brew is great. First off the bottle Is nice, it has a little compass indented into it, a nice thing to appreciate for a couple seconds. This definitely tastes different from your IPA, smells different, and is a complete different experience. Very fruity taste and that is awesome, I've had in bottle and glass, glass is more flavoring and goes down a bit better while bottle is a bit stronger. Definitely recommend this beer for all

What a great beer from the get-go! Appearance is a huge cream-colored, long lasting head with lots of lace, and a clear, honey amber color. Aroma is equal parts grapefruit and resin with caramel malt and hints of cereal. Flavor’s just spot on balanced with perfect amounts of malt sweet, hop bitter, carbonic tang. Body is dialed in too. I want more!!

If you are the kind if person who loves to explore beer, then you know the feeling of falling in love with a beer the first time you ever tasted it. That was my experience with Hop Notch. Then you try it a second and maybe again a third time. Sure enough, no subsequent taste ever matched the first. Tis life; passions are rarely permanent.

This brew doesn't follow. I saw the lable and immediately recalled fond memories. But then worried my memory exceeded potential. It didn't. This IPA's hop blend beats almost any other. Try it if you can find it. If you appreciate hops you'll love it!

First time I had this and I was completely surprised how great this beer is. Very comparable to Pliny...yes it is that good. And for the price...7 a six pack at total wine. Can't beat that. It's a very fresh ipa that has the hints if rosemary, pine, and some Orange peel. You must do yourself a favor and try this if you havnt already....

My current favorite go-to ipa. I like it slightly better than Sculpin, which is a pretty awesome ipa. If you like your ipa's to taste "bright" and be boozy yet frighteningly drinkable, this one's for you.

Poured vigorously from the bottle into a teku glass.

A- pours an amazing light amber color with a solid, white, 3 inch head. I waited until it subsided and poured over top. The head is so firm that it raised above the rim of the glass about an inch. Gorgeous lacing all around the glass with every sip.

S- smells of biscuity malts, grapefruit/citrus hops.

T- tastes sweet up front on the tongue and finishes a dry, pleasant bitter. Packed with tons of hop flavor, but has a nice full body and delicious malt to balance it out. Lots of flavor in this brew.

M- slightly prickly on the tongue with no ether/alcohol flavor present despite the 7.3% abv. Very well done. No harsh bitterness on the finish. A very pleasant mouthfeel.

O- a solid, drinkable, IPA. Very well balance with hop flavor/bitterness and malt sweetness. One of my favorite IPAs to drink as it is very drinkable dispute the abv.

Poured amber/honey color with thick foamy head - about 2 finger's width. Excellent lacing on side of the glass. Grassy, piney smell with hints of citrus. Piney hoppy bitterness upfront when tasting. There is a hint of citrus at the end, but the grassy hops persist throughout. The bitter aftertaste is not too strong and not too weak. Just right. There is a slight malty character in the middle, but it is not a major part of the beer. Even, though, this is an excellent IPA. I recommend all those who like hoppy beers to give it a try.

I'm gonna be honest with the beer world. All of the geeks who say Pliny is the greatest, or heady topper. Hop Notch is the best bang for your buck out of any beer. Go find 35 bucks in your couch cushin and buy a case. Stone or Bells couldn't carry this beers lunch. Unless you live in Vermont this is the king of ipa's. Don't let the generic label fool you. Your drinking Hop Notch your living high class. Peace my beer drinking brothers

After having so many IPAs in my day, I often wonder if I'll find one that makes me think, "oh YES!" This one has done that. I'm currently drinking it as I write this, and I'm a happy man.

*It pours dark orange with a nice 1" head and some lacing. I poured mine into a craft-pub glass which I enjoy for American IPAs.
*The smell is fantastic, with a nice hops aroma, balanced with citrus, and a little pine, I think.
*The taste is out of this world. It truly is something to enjoy. The hops are powerful, but like spicy food -- the hops are not the only note and other flavors continually balance the hops. Citrus (I want to say grapefruit and saw that on another review, but I often mess up *which* citrus notes are coming through. It might be a combination of tropical fruits), and malt. I find the balance sublime. The mix of sweet and hops is fantastic, although the aftertaste is fairly bitter -- if you're a hophead, it's wonderful. If you're not, it might be a bit strong.
*It's light to medium bodied.
*Overall: I am really impressed with this. Obviously, the IPA market is crowded, both what is on the shelves and in thousands of breweries, but I will likely look to have this in my fridge on a regular basis. Takes a lot to impress me this much with an IPA, but this is good.

12oz. can. Aroma: Citrusy, mouth-drool inducing olfactory perfection
Appearance: Deep amber, with clingy lacing coating the glass
Taste: Superbly balanced grapefruit citrus lets the hops be at the forefront without being overwhelming.
Palate: So smooth, at an ideal ABV, this is session stuff for me.
Overall: I can't find any fault with this brew and I'm let down every time I try other IPAs (frequently).

Wow. Had in bottle and can. I must say the can is 100xs . Hop aroma is more intense. Maybe freshness caused . Very drinkable and easy to get. For my money really hard to beat. Bitterness is perfect crisp on the tongue but cleans very nicely. Carbonation is perfect. Would love to try on tap

Really like this one ! Great aroma greets you right away. One of my absolute favorites, mouth feel is great. The bitterness is perfect, flavor overall is very complex. Wonderful color. HopNotch is about as good as it gets on IPA's. Chinook hops deep flavor, piney, slight citrus, wonderful overall!
