Growler from DeCiccos-Ardsley. Pours gold with an amber hue and a asting, white head. Smells of pineapple, honeydew, some pine undertones. Tastes mildly bitter with a resiny presence and a peppery splash on the finish.

Wow. Outstanding aroma -- like fresh squeezed grapefruit and orange juice. Nice citrus flavor, tangerine, grapefruit and some mango. Really strong malty backbone... almost too much for my taste. Still a very good beer.

Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of mango, citrus, spices, caramel, biscuit and red berries. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of mango, citrus and caramel. Nice tropical fruit component. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Too light bitterness.

If they made beer cologne Ė and if they donít they should Ė this wouldnít be a bad place to start.
STYLE: American IPA
LOOK: Creamy head sits nicely atop a surprisingly clear amber, more vinegar than oil. Slow but persistent carbonation up the gut. I can tell already, the lacing, itís there.
NOSE: Classic West Coast IPA. Sugared grapefruit right away. Also orange. Also pineapple. And also nectarines. Thereís a wonderful little piney note, like if you took a citrus cocktail and stirred it with just a needle or two. Tempting and coy.
MOUTH: It canít replicate the nose, and thatís a shame because I had orgasmic hopes for a mouth parade. What I need here is some sweet honey tang and something that sticks in my gums for a minute. This, Iím afraid, is too light to be excellent. But not to get too caught up in the negatives, because there are some, letís cover the positives. Because there are just as many. Sharper pine without being overwhelming. Clever bitterness. And a nice malty gulp.

12oz bottle, really good, welcome Uinta to Ohio. an interesting mix of pine and citrus flavors is a very good way to put it, even the grass is apparent.. solid IPA that varies from the onslaught of Citra and Galaxy Iím diggin it.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent orange with sticky off-white lacing. Smells solid too; bitter hops with a semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
