COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a straight-up orange translucent color. Tons of thick, foamy white head dirties my glass and overstays its welcome.

Smells nice, but lacks the pungent hop punch of its peers. Hops bounce on & off the palate; fresh citrus for a few moments before things turn bitter. Finishes with lingering bitterness and traces of citrus. Pretty nice.

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.

radio_nowhere (1287) - Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2015
Ratebeer #1,000 woo! Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, clear golden-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of strong citrus/pine hops, tropical dankness, somewhat earthy balanced with caramel malt sweetness. Taste carries on the hop punch of the nose; grapefruit, resin, herbal and almost putrid earthiness balanced with malt graininess. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, oily, dry with long lingering fruity/earthy hop bitterness. Very tasty.

halfonit (1279) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2012
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. Itís mostly grass and line with a touch of floral hops and citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice and crisp IPA..
