What a nice IPA here. Floral hops which are really evident as this guy is fresh. Bottled on 6-25-12. And balanced to boot. Really a super easy drinker for 7.3%. Iíd like to try other beers from Uinta based on their IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/19/12
Aroma: The nose has a floral and citrus/fruity hop bouquet with some pine notes as well
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear orange color with a white head and some coating, drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet (citrus notes) and medium-plus bitter (mostly floral and pine hops)
Palate: The body is medium, it has a clean feel to it, a soft carbonation, and a slick, dry finish
I found this one to be a very solid IPA. It really works quite well, and hit on all the marks I was looking for. This is certainly a more then solid beer, but it falls a little short of world-class. Still, this is a top (or hop, if you will) notch offering.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange, bubbles and particulate matter, medium off-white head which lingers in subdued form. Very nice aroma of citrus hops, bit of pine, faint sweet malt. Medium body. Flavor is refreshing and bitter grapefruit hops, smoothed out by the malt in the background. Long bitter finish. Excellent IPA.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
For me, the aroma was the weakest element, as I could barely smell anything at all. The color was a tawny gold, with a nice head and great lacing. The bitterness of the hops is almost overwhelming, and it camps out on your palate for a good long while. A strong flavor that would go very well with strong cheese, well done meat, or eggs. Yes, I said eggs.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours mostly clear medium gold with a fluffy, long lasting white head.
Light citrus hop aroma.
The flavor is bitter with a good deal of malt sweetness with it. Follows along the make up of many IIPAs in that respect.

12 oz bottle packaged on 08/24/2012. Pours a dark amber with a small, white head. Fruity aroma with a bit of pine, and a hint of metal. Flavor is similar, light on the tongue, but the same metallic off flavor.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a lighter amber color with a moderate white head. Really intense bitter hoppy aroma to this beer that is awesome for an IPA lover like myself. Decent level of that same bitterness to the brew, but itís balanced well to not be overwhelming. Very interesting...

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Scott. Aroma of ripe grapefruit, as well as some in the taste, but this one falls flat on the palate. Bitter waves, which leave me unimpressed. Good idea, but unexecuted. Okay beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Knotty, piney, resinous aroma indicates a strong, bitter IPA. Glowing hazy orange does not contradict that prediction. Flatly bitter with a good malt contrast that tries very hard to balance the beer out. A solid IPA headin towards the heavy extreme.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 23, 2012 - 12oz bottle shared by sledutah. I go from zero Utah ratings to three in the space of 20 minutes - awesome! Slightly hazy amber-tinged gold with a smallish frothy/foamy off-white head. Floral/resin aroma, catty, only a little sweetness to the backing malt. Taste follows, more citrus, quite pungently catty, not all that floral, the malt really just frames the bitterness, but itís balanced. Average body, mild carbonation, lightly astringent, finishes surprisingly quickly - slightly dry linger. Would love to try this on tap.
