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.

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.

Excellently smooth IPA. Had a draft half yard at the Yard House in SJ. Nice and strong without being overpowering.
