Presentation: Hop Notch has a simple label with an old world feel, interesting graphics and color scheme. Label states type of beer as well as ABV info and that the beer is brewed with renewable wind and solar power. Says Earth, Wind, and Beer under cap!

Appearance: A 16oz English Pint was my glass of choice for this 12oz bottle. Hop Notch pours out a slightly hazy golden orange color that with a 2 finger off white foam head of a light airy density. Head retention was excellent sticking around for 4min 42sec before fading to a thick foam coating and ring that resulted in excellent lacing that lasted the entire length of the glass.

Smell/Aroma: Smells of earthy piney hops that are complimented by sweet citrus scents. Spot on for the style.

Flavor/Taste: Tastes very piney and grassy with major bitterness hitting the palette up front and not fading at all turning into a very hop bitter aftertaste. All hops here and not much in the way of malts at all. Very true to the IPA form.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with medium carbonation and a smooth silky feel in the mouth. Not filling and very refreshing, highly drinkable.

Overall/Comments: Excellent example of the traditional American IPA focusing solely on the hops. Very good beer that I would rank just below Stone IPA(my IPA gold standard). Picked this up while in Salt Lake City, Utah. Bottled on 8/29/12. Consumed on 12/24/12.

12oz bottle poured into SA glass; best before 04/2013.

Light orange/honey elixir, tight white foam head, nice lacing.

Pungent tangerine, citrus hops, some honey and light malt.

Smooth hops in the citrus vein, but not as hop forward as a Head Hunter or Pliny. Malt finish cuts the bitterness.

Medium balanced, refreshing.

Tasty. Alcohol hidden. Not as hoppy and flavorful as the top IPAs but decent.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a cloudy orange straw with a tiny head, but it leaves nice lacing. Smells of floral notes with a little bit of grain, very inviting. Tastes of nice earthy and citrus notes, nice bite yet some balance. Beer is carbonated perfectly, finishes nice for its light body. Overall, a very good beer.

At PJs Bethlehem

A: Finger thick head that leaves a dense lacing throughout the pint, nice deep orange color

S: Oily, citrus hops with some biscuit malt in the nose

T: Same as the smell. Resiny, oily, hops with a nice malt backbone to provide balance. Delicious.

M: Mild carbonation, not too thick. Well balanced.

O: A very tasty offering, from Utah nonetheless. Hoppy and flavorful, overall a good beer for anyone who enjoys hoppy beer.
