Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. Its balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2012
THOUGHTS: Lots of hops but lots of balance, too. Nice malt backbone, but still lots and lots of hops. But the hops are never overwhelming. Rather complex hop profile. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, medium to dark, brownish orange with great carbonation and and average, off-white head that kept a nice sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel malt; moderate to heavy pine, resin, grapefruit and orange hops; and mango. The initial flavor was slight to lightly sweet and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was light to moderately sweet and moderate to nearly heavily bitter. There was caramel malt, orange hops, grapefruit hops, resinous hops, pine hops, and a little tropical fruit hops. The medium body was a little oily and then dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

Dark amber color, two fingers of head. Nose is full of citrus (lemon and grapefruit) and resinous hops. Flavor is more of the same. Hop punch in the face full of grapefruit and astringent bitterness. Finishes nice and dry. A nice IPA and my first beer from this brewery.

Pint at Fountainheads. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, caramel malts, and a little spiciness. Flavor the same, with enough hops to make me feel like its an IPA. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

What a wonderful IPA. After the pour you get a little bit of a head and a good golden color. The aroma is of sweet, sweet hops and the taste follow suit. Little lacing but mighty enjoyable IPA.

What a nice IPA here. Floral hops which are really evident as this guy is fresh. Bottled on 6-25-12. And balanced to boot. Really a super easy drinker for 7.3%. Id like to try other beers from Uinta based on their IPA.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/19/12

Aroma: The nose has a floral and citrus/fruity hop bouquet with some pine notes as well
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear orange color with a white head and some coating, drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet (citrus notes) and medium-plus bitter (mostly floral and pine hops)
Palate: The body is medium, it has a clean feel to it, a soft carbonation, and a slick, dry finish
Overall Impression: I found this one to be a very solid IPA. It really works quite well, and hit on all the marks I was looking for. This is certainly a more then solid beer, but it falls a little short of world-class. Still, this is a top (or hop, if you will) notch offering.

Hazy orange, bubbles and particulate matter, medium off-white head which lingers in subdued form. Very nice aroma of citrus hops, bit of pine, faint sweet malt. Medium body. Flavor is refreshing and bitter grapefruit hops, smoothed out by the malt in the background. Long bitter finish. Excellent IPA.

For me, the aroma was the weakest element, as I could barely smell anything at all. The color was a tawny gold, with a nice head and great lacing. The bitterness of the hops is almost overwhelming, and it camps out on your palate for a good long while. A strong flavor that would go very well with strong cheese, well done meat, or eggs. Yes, I said eggs.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Pours mostly clear medium gold with a fluffy, long lasting white head. Light citrus hop aroma. The flavor is bitter with a good deal of malt sweetness with it. Follows along the make up of many IIPAs in that respect.

12 oz bottle packaged on 08/24/2012. Pours a dark amber with a small, white head. Fruity aroma with a bit of pine, and a hint of metal. Flavor is similar, light on the tongue, but the same metallic off flavor.
