Best before 4/22/13. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent golden with a huge fluffy white head that sticks around and leaves really nice lacing. Great looking IPA. The aromas are very floral. Lots of grass, orange peel, lemon zest. The flavors are good, but slightly soapy. It has an odd aftertaste that I can't put my finger on, but it still finishes pretty clean. It tastes fine, I just expected a tad more based on the nose. There's a decent bitterness to this one. There are subtle hints of onion and garlic in the flavors, very subtle. There are some caramel malts in the mix, but the hop flavors and bitterness still shine. Mouthfeel is pretty nice. Medium-bodied; light and smooth with active carbonation. Alcohol goes basically unnoticed. It's pretty easy to drink.

Not a bad IPA at all. Very solid. There's alot to like about it and it's just short of being something special. It's still better than alot of other IPAs on the market. It's really good at $8.99/6pk.

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.
