Persimmon colored body was clear and lively, with a three finger thick head. Extra props for the classy caged and corked presentation, with a little informative cardboard foldout tied around the neck. The aroma was rich with pine straw and grapefruit smells from the hops. The taste was citric and quite bitter. There was not a whole lot of malt backbone here, and the sweetness was mostly comprised of simple sugars. Pretty sticky on the palette, and a long aftertaste with a pepper like spiciness. Not a beer to make me go wow, but a solid detour indeed.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Murky caramel color with a finger of sticky beige head. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is typical citrus and piney hops, plenty of sweet maltiness. Tastes moderately bitter and more sweet than typical for style. Citrus and piney hops, some dirty florals. Kinda reminds me of a fresh hop version that has meandered past fresh… good, but not quite what it could be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange pour, super sticky off white head. Sweet malty aroma, orange zest and lots of pine, with subtle caramels. Sticky mouth feel, and good carb. Finish is highly bitter, sticky, chewy malts, slme caramels and lots of pine. An old school dipa.

12oz bottle. Sticky head of white lace clings to the glass and warns me of the super sticky mouthfeel to come. The aroma seems overly sweet - this much hop presence should leave it clean and refreshing instead of sticky and cloying. Not a double IPA that I will seek out again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear amber with a large pale beige head. Aroma of sweet dough, vague citrus, pine, over-ripe tropical fruit. 6-7. Very sweet and sticky. Heavy resinous bitterness hacks away at it and numbingly succeeds. Fruit flavors are not completely buried but have nowhere to move. Some overt alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good, but not a top ipa for me. Pours a clear copper. Aroma is citrus and pine with some maltiness. Taste follows nose. Citrus and pine with some surprising sweetness. Finishes a little over bitter. I like bitter, even more bitter than this, but this bitterness does not seem to add to the beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Utah IPAs (even the doubles, imperials, etc) seem to really like the caramel malt backbone. This has a citrus and hoppy smell, but can smell some malt sweetness to it. The taste follows the smell. A bit of citrus, a bit of pine, then followed by caramel sweetness. Big mouthfeel. Ends with an IPA bitterness.
Having trouble finding just a plain ol’ IPA in this state (as I like less caramel and sweetness when paired with spicy foods). This one, like the HopNosh were rated pretty high, but so far both of the Uinta’s I have had have not impressed me much.
