2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Modest white head on dark bronze beer. Aroma is beautifully hoppy: complex mix of grapefruit, pine, and herbs. Body is very syrupy; hardly any carbonation bite. Kind of slippery across the tongue. Flavor is sweetish and subdued overall. Lingering, intense hop bitterness on the finish: kind of a glue-like consistency. I expected a lot more hop punch, but it’s not there. Sweet alcohol finish.

Caged/corked. What a beauty ... towering foam atop a picture-perfect amber-colored beer. The aroma, too, is almost sexually charged -- full of nice, round piney resin. Beautifully balanced, this beer is sublime ... rich with woodsy hop character, yet easy to drink. The richness of this beer is artfully subdued, like a perfectly constructed beauty. Well done, Uinta!! This is why I became a beer geek. (#4145, 6/25/2011)

750 ml bottle at Sorbon. Hazy, amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of pine, grapefruit, hops and light caramel. Smells very nice. Dry taste with very little sweetness and medium bitterness. A bit lighter bitterness than average for the style. Medium bodied with OK (maybe a bit low) carbonation. OK DIPA for a good price.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep copper-amber into the glass, with a frothy head that reduces to soap and sudsy lace. The nose is of huge floral bouquets with mingling pine. The flavors are of deep grapefruity citrus, some malt backbone and deep bitters. The finish is of fresh pine needles (chewed, citrusy) and peppery bitters, intertwined with just a touch of alcohol. The mouthfeel is oily and the body is full. With a semi-chewy palate, this is a very nice DIPA offering, very substantive and well-balanced.
