3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper with thin foamy white head and light lacing. Smells a tad biscuity then a little lemony, grapefruity, and fresh. Tastes a little perfumey then goes into the dry/bitter. Hard mouthfeel, moderate bitter finish. Not bad, but there are others I like better. (Caveat- I just ate jalapenos and the burn is still in my mouth- so grain of salt.)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Pizza Port. Not sure why my wife got this instead of the house beers. Pours a hazy golden with fairly big white head. Aroma is earthy with a bit of sweet corn. Taste is slightly dank and then has loads if fresh soil. Some more sweetness but then it falls off. The mouth feel is very thin and leaves a lot to be desired.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at battleship. The beer pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Aroma is quite floral with a little bit of grass and pine. Slightly sweet malt aroma, mostly bread. The flavor is moderately sweet without a ton of hop flavor either. It’s mostly grass and line with a touch of floral hops and citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice and crisp IPA..

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.
