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.

3.5 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 doesnít really balance as a large product; furthermore, the palate combines a sticky texture, bitter finish, soft carbonation, and a medium body.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orange, white head....this is an IPA thatís relatively complex...not just bitter and dry, but floral, citrusy with a significant body to it. The bitterness is still there, and itís well places, but the other parts of the body are there as well. Less sessionable and better for one or two glasses because of the body. Very good beer.

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.

Bottle at DíAgneseís 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.

3.2 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.

December 20th, 20120 - After the Baba Black comes Uintaís Hop Notch IPA (now named the Hop Nosh.) Itís 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 foamís spectacle, itís not my favorite style to drink.
