COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. Itís balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

Bought a case that was very well within date. Has a bold yet generic IPA flavor. There are notes of grapefruit, passion fruit and mango. But those are all in the background to the prevalent bitterness the hops bring. Mid malt backbone. No alcohol taste, so thatís great. Itís full bodied, bitter, tickles the tongue - but itís not my favorite...flavor?

This is an outstanding IPA (India Pale Ale) with an upfront citrus-hop blend taste that was a lasting flavor with a pleasant finish!

shorlin (635) - St. Johnís, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Cloudy orange amber. Decent lace. Aroma is orange and pineapple, with a little pine. Really fruity taste, malt coming through. Very tasty, earthy and solid. Well rounded. Good beer!

On tap. Semi-glowing copper color with a white. Bitter pine and dry malt in the aroma. Taste is clean bitter hops with pine. Dry malt backbone. No tropical fruit. Clean, lightly gritty mouthfeel. Solid IPA.

Westkyoto77 (500) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2014
On tap at Barracuda Tavern, Boston. Nose of soapy hops, some fresh pine. Standard IPA look of dark amber. A little astringent, perhaps some detergent in the palate, but nice citrus flavours and a sweetish clean aftertaste. Taste more mellow fruit than pine, with a touch of honey detectable. Thought all American IPAs were beginning to taste the same to me, but this was a nice change up. Solid stuff

BLADT (451) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle pour. Clean gold-amber in glass with a thick, off-white head. Nose is reserved: earthy, basement notes with mellowed hops, some orange rind. Very nice, I just wish more pronounced. Taste picks up the slack. The subtle orange from the nose is in full force, along with a robust, grainy earthiness. A good helping of sugar cookies in the middle. Ends bitter. A worthy export.

Good but these day an IPA by any other name is... well... an IPA. Good but there are SO many available.

bpreo (1491) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2014
A really great India Pale Ale, hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah. It could be a contender.

Bottle - cloudy orange pour, strong aroma and taste of pine with some sweetness mixed in. Slightly metallic on the finish.

I like this beer. Itís not extreme, but it certainly is an IPA (unlike some of the INO brews that Iíve had lately) and it is certainly tasty. Nice look to it, a golden bronze body with a creamy and sustained two-finger head. The aroma has a nice hop spiciness to it, predominantly citrus and zest with a touch of grasses and floral scents. A mild pale malt sweetness seeps through the head once in a while. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy, adding a smooth drinkability. The flavor begins with a soft sweetness, soon joined by citrusy flavors and a steady, although not overpowering bitterness. That hop bite lasts into a prolonged dy finish. Nice. Iíve had a few tasty brews from Uinta, and Iím glad to see that some are now available in the Chicago area.
