3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; MALTY though. A semi-transparent amber with foamy off-white head that slowly dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells of bitter hops and sweet pale malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Good, not great.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
As I said in another review I wrote for a brew from Uinta today, Iím always really pleased with their packaging and design. This beer is no exception, the cork stopper on top is the finishing touch to a very beautiful package.
On to the beer- a sticky white head sits on top of a resin, amber colored IPA. Dominating flavors are the medley of hop varieties, and the perfect dry finish so many other IPA brewers seek. A great beer that I canít wait to have again.

Pint on tap at Keystone in Hyde Park. Clear orange / amber color. Half-finger off-white head, good thin bit retains. Good lace. Nice assertive bitter hoppy nose. Awesome piney, resiny, zesty sweetness. Light bit of alcohol. Bigger body, light smooth carbonation. More dry texture, though a bit of viscosity. Good big biscuity caramel malt balance to it, though still bitter and assertive and not sweet at the same time. Tasty and drinkable DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity but tons of bready malt on the nose. A nice thin line of head. A solid double slap to the face of hops. Highly carbonated. I like it, I think as it warms the tastes will improve. The alcohol pulls thru just a hare too much.

Big bottle uncorked, cloudy orange brown ice tea like pour with heavy cream head that sticks to the glass, smells or caramel malt syrup, thick spicy taste, herbs, pine hop with a spicey bitter aftertaste, almost some lingering cinnamon, Uinta does not disappoint

Difficult to ignore this Uinta Brewing Co. Iíve recently encountered in battle. Crooked Line is a spicy, dry, and hoppy treat! Very nice looking russet color, and I believe there is some rye in there--I swear there is rye! I had no choice put to right this in the exceptional category.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a murky bronze color with a big clumpy off-white head that has good retention and abundant lacing. Aroma of caramel, sweat and pine. Taste is bitter resins followed by sweet caramel, toffee and a touch of chemically hot alcohol. The palate is full and viscous with lively carbonation. Finishes dry, medium in duration, with sweet tastes lingering. Overall: I should have paid attention to the bottling date, this stuff is 6 month old. Iíll look for a fresh bottle to re-rate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big alcohol is hidden pretty well up front; slow burn in the back of the throat over time. Sweet malt base with lots of caramel and toasted bread. Hops are grassy, piney and grapefruity. Moderate, balanced bitterness. Earthy and herbal aromas. Solid brew.
