Notch Brewing
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
UK inspired IPA in strength, and US influenced with Citra Mosaic and Centennial hops. Notch does not refer to this as a "Session IPA" as lower ABV IPAs have been available in the UK for over 100 years. It's nothing new, it's simply an IPA.

20 and 10 oz pours from Deep Ellum on 5/2/2013.

Who would have though a 4.3% ABV IPA could be so good. Straw to golden with a very whispy head. West coast aroma, pine and tropical fruit. The taste follow suit with a bit of grain present. Lots of flavor despite the low alcohol. Light body and minimal carbonation. I started with the 10 oz. and realized my mistake, so I order the full pour next.

Poured into a pint glass on draft at Bahama Breeze. Pours a light yellow with a one inch head that leaves behind some nice thin lace.

Smell is mango, papaya, pine, herbal hops, and grapefruit rind.

Taste follows nicely tropical unfortunately with some herbal and grapefruit in crisp and slightly bitter finish, really tasty.

Mouthfeel is lite and crisp, very carbonated, not dry at all, and hard to drink slowly.

Overall this is a nice session IPA, I will be looking for this stuff!
