Bottle @ some wicked cowboy joint in Kanap, UT. Amber colored, medium white head. Good hoppy nose backed up by some biscuit malts. It has a delightful bitter finish with a citrus touch. Rather good.

I went into a grocery store in Richfeild looking for local Utah beers and found this one. It looked as if 4% is the ABV limit in Utah as all the beers, including Midnight Sun’s Cohoho IPA were 4%. Looks, smells and tastes like a multitude of other APA’s i’ve had. Pretty good and from the looks of the utah selection, I’d probably drink this often if I lived there.

Draught: Had this on a recent vacation to Moab at Fat City. The waitress who was serving us told me it was a porter. As soon as it arrived, I knew it was no porter. Nonetheless I was pretty impressed. Amber, clear filtered color with small off white head served very cold. Aroma: juicy hops (cascade for sure, possibly more); slight sweetness, fruit and malt stay in the background. This has a solid flavor as well - bitter hops immediately hit the tongue, followed by malt and caramel with a bit of sweetness, ending bitter. Just a slight amount too much carbonation. Better than I expected for my first Utah beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This pale ale pours with a nice, clear deep amber body topped by a medium thick to thick, off white head with lots of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet yet slightly bitter and hoppy with a malty background and an odd undertone. The flavor is rather well-balanced at first but becomes more bitter with a slight msltiness. The flavor is a little weak. Medium bodied, relatively smooth and slightly dry.

On tap at Docks Pub (base of Canyons Ski Resort). Served in a chilled pint glass and this may have had an effect on the aroma and flavor. Amber colored. Faint maltiness in the nose. Roasted malt and caramel flavors with a mild note of hops. A quality brew, even with the chill factor.

Light hop notes with a screaming need of dry hopping, nicely balanced and fruity though. From other utah brewer's offerings, uinta could have done better, but it's not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. A fine looking dark amber color with a foamy tan head that soon laced. The aroma has a deep malt character with a bite of fruit and flowers, but it falls flat in flavor which is dry and dusty without a solid and enjoyable malt backbone or present hops.

Nice amber color. Had a cold so I couldn't smell any aroma. But the sweet hop flourish and biting finish was good despite the cold.

Picked this up traveling through Utah. Smells very quiet, of faint hops. Taste is quite bland, but a plus of this beer is it has the right amount of hops that I enjoy.
