Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orange with a creamy, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up juicy orange, apricot, and other fruity hops over sweet caramel and lesser biscuity notes.. a little aspartame right on the back of the nose.. solid. The flavor found sweet caramel and a bit of bready malts at the core, with quasi-juicy pine and orangey bitterness around.. finished bitter and engaging, with citrus and pine leading. Light-medium bodied with a good feel through the palate.. moderate carbonation.. good stuff!

Aromatic and restrained for an IPA. Not the regular brassy hop flavor. An ipa a little more friendly for the masses, but sure to please the devout followers. High points include the round palate, the floral aroma, and the nicely balanced malt.

Pours a crystal clear golden yellow, nice full white head. Nice hopy, citrus, pine nose. Bitter dry hop attack and a good finish. Yumm.

Got in a trade, but forget from who. THANKS! Pours a nice dark gold/orange/light copper hue with a small white head. Honestly, this thing smells fantastic. Great floral, pine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple coming off the nose. Such an unassuming bottle. A nice hop bitterness, with grapefruit up front and on the way down, with a definite lingering pine on the palate. Hop bite all the way through. Carbonation is lower than I expected. Really easy drinking, and could be mistaken for a session IPA. An unexpected surprise. Will have to seek out more from Uinta.

From bottle. Very nice nose - spicy-floral hops, oily and resinous. Mild caramel and malt sweetness. Orange peels. Deep orange-amber clear with creamy off-white, huge lacing head. Medium body with medium-light carbonation. Starts fairly dry. Big hop flavor from start to finish. Bursts of resin, orange peel, and apricot. Light nutty caramel malt notes. Big bitter finish with lasting bitter after.

Some good citrus aroma. pours amber. Taste of a malty caramel sweetness, then fades to the bitterness of the hop notes. Finishes smooth with a slight creamy mouth feel and a bitter bite on the very end. A solid IPA.

Orange pour with no head just a hinto white foam. Citrus and light malt aroma. Flavor is medium dry caramel malt with a decent enough finishing bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Nice.

Ännu en klass-IPA på Mogwai! Söt och tydliga inslag av humle! Jag gillar, vad mer kan man säga.... Rätt beska, medium eftersmak.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium off-white head with great retention; after it recedes, cobwebby lace is left on the glass. Aroma is super grapefruity, piney. Taste starts out lightly sweet before quickly becoming bitter and remaining that way through the somewhat long finish. Mouthfeel is creamy; carbonation is medium to soft. It’s a real basic Pac-NW IPA, but it hits all the right notes. Excellent.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 12 oz. bottle- Pours mostly clear orange with a one finger head that reduces to a blanket. Aroma is very hoppy, citrusy and pine, light malt. Taste is wonderfully hoppy, pine, malt is there but not in your face thankfully. Body is medium and carbonation is slightly high. Overall I really liked this, lately it seems all I have had in IPA’s is the balanced more malty than I’d like type, this does not shy away from the hops, which is awesome.
