Pours a vibrant golden amber color. Smells floral and hoppy. Hop flavor is not very pronounced. Good average beer.

MacBoost (1446) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2013
pours a clear amber with a just off white head. Aromas of some baby diapers and cat piss. Taste is bitter with some sweetness as well. Pretty well balanced... the hopiness is completely inline with the sweet bready malt. the malt is fat (stole that line from pinkie). finishes pretty spicy with a small hop bite and some residual sugar. pretty ok.

I cracked open a bottle of Uinta Hop Notch I picked up from Sugaya for maybe 5-600 yen. 7.3% Lovely classic IPA golden amber color with a great aroma of fruits, hint of grape, mild funk, very appetizing. Great flavor, fruity & rich at first with a sparkling mouthfeel. Then followed by a clean piney sweet finish & a great aftertaste. Not bitter at all beyond a fleeting hint of bitter pine near the end. Rich, complex, definitely a top shelf IPA!

Drank of a 12 oz bottle at the Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Old Philly on June 19, 2013. Golden honey, medium head. Hoppy aroma sweet herbs, very soft. Taste quite the same, notes of dry citrus bitterness is dry too. Itís pretty good!

Pint on tap. Itís dark yellow, clear, and has good lacing. Bitter, bitter bitter, though. I kind of disagree with the description...I didnít find it exceptionally malty or complex, actually. Kind of a basic IPA, just fine, but youíre not missing anything.

Copper with an off-white head, leaves nice lacing. Aromas of grassy hops. Citrusy +piney hops with a good malt balance. Smooth but slightly sticky mouthfeel. Great IPA!

Pours a copper color with off white head. Aromas of spice, malt, light citrus, and grass. Flavor is sweet malt and citrus, some biscuit and a dry bitter spice and hoppy finish.

12 oz - nicely laced, wonderful head of white froth. Looks a little fizzy, but the malt is there. Thereís nothing Iíd change about this one.
