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.

I was more impressed with the branding / packaging from the Uinta Hop Notch IPA than with the taste. I found it unbalanced (lack of decent maltiness) and overly bitter (which I actually typically enjoy). Can we add an "eh" category?

Thanks to Douglas88 for the beautiful bottle from Utah. Pours a true amber with an orange tint and slight haze. What a looker this beer is with a thick head of foam that slowly fell to to some chunky lace and nice legs too. Nose is grapefruit, pine and grass. A great big whiff of bread but then the malt disappears for a minute behind some herbal and grassy dank. Malt presence in the nose is ultimately very soft, sweet caramel and cookie. Taste is delightful with ample malts, lots of oily piney hops, a little bit of sour grapefruit. This beer was like silk on the palate. Some said watery and I disagree. The malt was cultivated to perfection underneath the hops bitter and leaned into the dry finish with a sweetness on the back that was supple and full. Bitterness fades fast in the aftertaste as this one leaves smooth and the definition of dry. Hop Notch is top notch.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2013 Poured from bottle into snifter, clear golden color with healthy head. Smells quite flowery like a farmhouse saison, yet still very hoppy. Reminiscent of SNís Hoptimum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ADDITIONAL: Having some more tonight, and damn...I really like the nose on this. Itís growing on me quickly even more so I had to bump the rating a little.

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours a dark golden color with a off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is tropical fruits and a really sweet malt backbone. Taste is grapefruit and mango, strong caramel backbone that helps balances out the bitter grapefruit taste, then it goes back to a lingering bitter finish. Solid IPA .

Bottle from Total Wine in Redondo Beach. Orange pour. Quickly diminishing white head. Aroma immediately after pour was a fresh citrus. A minute later the citrus was gone and aroma consisted of mowed grass and sweet malt. Taste is lemon and sweet malt. Finish is bitter. Body is medium and mouthfeel is slightly sticky.

Pours a clear golden with slight tint of orange and one finger of head that sticks around a bit. Mouth-watering hoppy smells of fresh-cut grass and piney woods with a hint of citrus and light malt. Intense flavors of dank, grassy hops that approaches an oniony or garlicy character, but falls just short of that. Sweet from the begining, but also very bitter the whole time, so it finally finishes somewhat dry after the long bitter finish. Great American IPA. Just a great beer.

Nose is Citrus, pine, grapefruit..possibly even lemon/lime. Definite west coast standard. Superb malt backbone. Extremely thirst quenching. Taste is almost as hoppy as the nose. Feels almost sessionable. Would love to enjoy this on a nice sunny day by the pool.

Poured a clear copper color with a nice and thick eggshell colored head. Aroma is resin, floral, citrus, herbs, grass, and caramel. Taste is grapefruit, grass, pine, sweet malt, and a nice bitter finish. Really good stuff, especially for the price.
