A good though not exceptional IPA, on tap at Capone's Restaurant. Big IBU, fruity and orange taste. Spider lace. Decent drinkability, however some bleach in the finish. Decent drinkability despite imperfections because of the hop complexity. Middling for all the great IPAs out there.

As others have said, this beer pours a light Orange. Nose is impressive with a nice hop character. Taste is where this IPA shines. Very nice balance between strong hop and malt. Among the top 10% of IPAa on the market. The balanced flavor continues with somewhat more malt as it fades. The alcohol come through at the very end.

I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. 12oz brown bottle with a bottled on date of 07/13/12 on the side of the label, making this bottle about 5 months old.

The beer poured a hazy golden/copper color with a 2-finger white head on top. The head lasted a few minutes and left lots of whispy lacing all over the glass.

Pineapple grapefruit aroma mixed with a touch of caramel.

The taste had more bitter grapefruit to it than sweeter pineapple, but both are present. Mild caramel malt adds some sweetness and balance, but the hops are the star of the show here with 82 IBU's to prove it. The alcohol is well hidden for 7.3%, but the bitter grapefruit oils linger well into the aftertaste.

Medium body with a little higher than average carbonation.

This is a decent IPA that lives up to it's namesake "Hop Notch".

Poured into a pint glass. The color is clear golden. There is a full one inch head that leaves a lot of great sticky lacing.

This has a really aromatic tropical fruitiness. Citrus and pineaplle blend really well together.

The taste has great zesty hop flavor to go with mild malt sweetness, that really shows in the finish. There is great pine and citrus notes in the flavor as well. The sweet finish really goes well with the orange.

This is really tasty, it's medium bodied and sticky. Yum.

Hard to see in this dark restaurant, but appears to be slightly amber color with white head.

Smell is mild tangerine and bread.

Taste is malt forward with citrus coming in midway. Caramel and apple also present.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied.

Overall good.

12 oz single from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in Salem. $1.39 Pours a slightly darker burnt orange then usual, with a large rocky dirty white head, that fades fast and leaves large amounts of lace down the glass. Slightly resinous hop aromas, with a good doze of caramel from the malts. A nicely balanced IPA in taste. Sure the hops are there but they are equaled by a strong caramel malt. Nice strong mouthfeel to this one. Overall a nice IPA and very drinkable.

I really liked this beer. The color is a light orange with a bone white head. The 1st smell had a nice citrus nose to it, but there was also a bit caramel as well. The bosy was meduim with a nice malty backbone to it. The bitterness was definatly there but it was not asstrigent. I tend to liek a bit of a sweeter IPA so this one worked for me. I would drink it again.
