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.

Best by 03MAY13 Nice golden with a solid quilt of fine creamy foam. Smells classic west coast: resin, weed, pine, grapefruit and BO. Nice nose. Flavor is up front bitter with a malty (crackers, biscuit and some sweet english crystals) backbone. There is a good resin bitterness with a spicy flavor and some good midpoint purple kush. Medium on nearly full bodied with fine, moderated carb and a watery finish. Nice beer. I probably wonít go out of my way for this one, but would drink on tap locally, particularly with a good spicy meal or pizza.

Deep gold-light copper, clear, off white head. Aroma of piney hops, biscuity malt. Flavor: grainy/biscuity malt, piney-resiny hops with mild citrus, clean and crisp with a little lingering bitterness in the finish. Refreshing and well- made.

Backlog purge. On tap at Standard Pour in Sonora. Gold pour. Heavy biscuity malt palate, not sweet just heavy, with heaps of acidic grapefruit.

From Whole Foods. Smells weakly of IPA. Copper colored. Tastes a bit weird and off. I guess thatís a good thing with cheese.

Aroma: citrus, pineapple, pine, grapefruit Appearance: amber orange, clear, a white head sort of fizzy and foamy, dissolves with light lacing. Taste: bitter, grapefruit, rind, a little floral. Palate: starts bitter, then a little sweet, then bitter again that fades after about 15 seconds. Overall: great beer!

Has good hoppy flavor which balances well with its malt level. Has amost a wet hop flavor with a crisp mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

ChrisFields (99) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Poured a nice cloudy amber with a good two fingered head that leaves terrific lacing. Nice aroma, citrus, pine and green grass. Taste is a nice round blend of hoppy bitterness with a subtle underscore of malt. Nice mouth feel and low carbonation makes for a very drinkable IPA. Overall Iíd say this IPA is pretty well put together. Nice rounded taste, good going down. Thats 2 for 2 from Uinta brewery for me, I may have to keep an eye on them.

12oz bottle from Brewmasters in Wilson. Golden brown hue with normal clarity. Fizzy initial white head that was mostly diminishing. This had a light orange hoppy aroma. The initial taste was a light bitter hop that lead into an average light bitter citrus finish. I like this one!!!
