I absolutely loved this beer. Great anytime IPA. Citrus nose, nice bitter flavors with a malt backbone that smooths everything out. Not exactly session-able at 7%, but I can definitely crack a few of these in a row and be perfectly content. Great 'Everyman IPA'.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a very impressive head; three fingers of great stickage but relatively little lacing

Smell: Plenty of piney hops on the nose, but an equal dose of caramel and melon underneath

Taste: Up front, the malts take a stand, bringing caramel and melon; without missing a beat, the bitter hops also arrive, rather piney, with some pithy citrus as well; after the swallow and through the finish, both the malts and the hops maintain a strong presence though the bitterness lingers into the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A well-balanced beer; though not among my favorites, this beer is certainly an enjoyable example of the style

Served in a 12 ounce bottle into a Sam Adams Spring Seasonal Glass.

A - Amber-brown classic ale color with a white head. Looks appetizing. Clear, minimal bubbles, minimal lacing.

S - Standard English stock ale smell with some hop notes. Smells like a classic IPA.

T - If you are an IPA purest who likes an English tasting malt with pleasant hops that aren't overpowering this is your beer.

M - English brown ale feel. Gives a watery punch to the back of your throat and has nice bite after you drink it.

O - Overall when I think of an IPA that has some nice American hop taste with a classic English background this pretty much fits the mold. Nothing fancy, but fills all the requirements for a quality original style IPA.

With a decent selection to choose from I just could not think of a reason to have a second glass and I moved on.

It was well hopped and had a decent citrus note but just lacked balance and finished kind of harsh.

Granted lately I have been drinking Founders Centenial and ball at Point Sculpin so perhaps the bar is set high.

It's not the first time I had a pint of Hop Notch and in general I would rate it about the same.

There simply are better choices in a decent bar.
