2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Scott. Aroma of ripe grapefruit, as well as some in the taste, but this one falls flat on the palate. Bitter waves, which leave me unimpressed. Good idea, but unexecuted. Okay beer.

Clear orange pour with a nice white head and great lacing. Aromais really nice sweet citrusy hops, a little toffee, and pine. Taste is pine up front with slight sweetness and then grapefruit in the finish. Nice bitterness. Medium light body. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance fuses a hazy orange color with a large off-white head that has a good retention, and the aroma is reminiscent of resin and floral hops the second your nose gets close to the rim of the glass. The taste is quite bitter, a touch sweet, and a touch sour, but the flavor doesn’t really balance as a large product; furthermore, the palate combines a sticky texture, bitter finish, soft carbonation, and a medium body.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pine, grass, and citrus fruit on the nose, along with subtle caramel notes. Clear dark orange with a mostly lasting, splotchy, white head. Bitter with a touch of malty sweetness. Medium body, lively carbonation, and finishes with aggressive yet quick, snappy hops that linger for quite some time.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grass and earthy hop aroma with a minor citrus hop hint in the back. Orange aroma comes out as it warms. Biscuity malt. Pours a clear orange with a full white head. Flavor leans toward a balance of citrus and sourdough bread malt. Moderate high bitterness and a sweet finish. As it warms, some alcohol warmth starts to show. Overall, a little underwhelming and not robust.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at D’Agnese’s Trattoria in Akron, OH. Draft in American shaker. Orange-golden yellow pour with thick, lasting white head. Very nice aroma with significant pine, resin, floral, and citrus. Taste similar with the pine and resin dominant. Bitter, but floral finish. Very well balanced with the malts. Medium body, medium carb. Crisp finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
December 20th, 20120 - After the Baba Black comes Uinta’s Hop Notch IPA (now named the Hop Nosh.) It’s a dramatically poised bear, with a conical head that looks like the hats from the Safety Dance music video, lumbering atop a murky, hazy orange marmalade colored beer. The smell radiates from this cone of foam, filled with cotton candy, pine and smells of chinook, wet fall leaves and cloves. The body is of medium weight with medium carbonation, which amps up a little at the end with a sudden burst of strength and effort, even if the aftertaste is short. The flavor at the beginning of the sip relies a little more on pine notes to carry the day but is otherwise flat on flavor. The mid-taste introduces some potpourri floral elements, and the aftertaste brings in some unripe, bitter grapefruit. So, bitter fans might enjoy this. While I appreciate the foam’s spectacle, it’s not my favorite style to drink.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a fairly thick, rocky off0white head that settless lowly and leaves some heaping clingy lace. Nose involves a whole gamut of hoppy goodness: floral, pine, citrus, earthy, herbal along with plenty of honey and sweet grain notes. Balanced sweet and bitter flavor: not over the top with bitterness, but plenty to balance the healthy malt backbone. Medium bodied, vibrant, a touch oily, with a pleasant drying bitterness on the end. A well put together IPA, and well-suited to those who favor some solid malt with their hops.
