Taster at Standard Market. Certainly a big smack of hop in the nose and on the tongue, even in my little sample. A little estery for a big IPA, which gives it a fruity note playing off the hops. Bitterness seems only lightly piney and more juicy than citrusy. That may be because I was sampling wines before turning to Standard Market’s amazing tap list.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mustard Seed Market. Pours a clears orange with a medium head that dies down quickly . Aromas of grainy maltiness with a little honey and some light orange scents. Flavor has a lot of grain and sugar with a decent bitterness and an orange and floral edge to the hops flavor, but it kind of falls a little flat and comes off as a sweet sticky thing that is good, but uninspiring.

Copper pour with a white head. Aroma is dank hops. Taste has a thick mouth feel. Dank hops, nice malty base. Very tasty. Alcohol is well hidden. Very flavorful. OK lacing.

A clear amber body sits beneath a tall, creamy-smooth, frothy capped head which falls to reveal thick layers and of eclectic lace all around above a thick ring and large island
Intertwined, medium plus intensity, high density flavors and aromas of big juicy, meaty fruit in the mango and peach realm with creamy dank undertones and accents of citrus and pineapple balanced by a solid doughy sweet roll sweetness on a silky smooth, dense, wonderfully creamy medium-plus body with well restrained carbonation leading to creamy, grassy residuals forming bursts of lasting layers of the previously mentioned components, very enjoyable and balanced, leaning just slightly towards the bitter and rich hop complexities, stoked to have Uinta back in KC

Resin, citrus, floral. It starts with a pleasant semi sweet resin/grapefruit and ends with a bit heavy bitter floral.

Not a big fan of pale ales but this one as nice brewed. As most of the beers from this brewery it has a touch of strong malts.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bold hop flavors with a balanced fruit/bitter palate. Fresh taste throughout. This isn't an A+ because of personal preference but an A-/A depending on my desire for a heavy alcohol and heavy sitting DIPA.

Pours a murky copper with off white head. Nice lacing present. There’s a caramel, citrus, pine, and light fruit aroma. Medium body that was smooth and creamy on the palate. Fairly sweet start that had a mildly bitter finish that stuck around. Flavor’s of citrus, pine, resin, caramel, toffee, and fruits. Not bad overall.

Bottle from ABC. Pours a murky brown with a medium off-white head. Lacing is pretty thin. Aromas are strong floral, pine, citrus. Taste follows suit, but some malt backbone comes through as well. Pretty sweet and somewhat sour on the way down; a pretty oily finish. Full bodied and quite enjoyable overall. Acquire.

Pours hazy , unclear dark amber , with a small yet creamy and rather stable head . Smell is very malty, with a bitter side and a fruity back . Bit sweet . Taste is damn good, just what I seek in an IIPA . Malty forward , creamy mouthfeel , hoppy , bitter, some fruits , but not too much of them . Finish is bitter, with clear malt tones . Lovely beer in every aspect !
