COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. It’s balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

Bottle. Clear yellow with great soapy head and lace. The aroma is a fresh hop blast of cat funk, grapefruit, pineapple, and pine. Flavor is soft biscuits, moderately sweet, candied orange, grapefruit, and a strongly alpha acid bitter finish that lingers. This must be very fresh. It’s full, soft, and fairly light on the palate other than the hop effects. A hop fix...nearly over so but hey...that’s what I love.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 7.2%. Appearance: The body is cloudy with a super fine sediment inside a rich amber liquid. This is topped off with a nice tall creamy head which hangs on well and makes tons of sweet lacey patterns on the glass. Smell: The aroma is full of sweet fruity hop notes. I get notes of peaches, white grapes and some mango. Taste / Palate: The base malt adds some grainy bready maltiness and some sweetness which props up the fruity hops. The hops bring a full on blast of mango, peach and a touch of white grape up front. This quickly moves on to more bitter notes of citrus rind. It seems to finish quickly but a light pine like hop bitterness creeps back in on the tongue. The palate feels fairly full and we’ll carbonated. This as well as its 7.3% abv makes for a nice slow sipping beverage.

12oz bottle from Rockland Beverage. Had in Manford. Pours dark amber. Aroma and palate are very dry hoppy. A hint of citrus on the tongue. Fresh. Pretty good.

12 oz. can says Hop Notch. Appearance: small white head, great lace, straw color, clear. Aroma: floral hops, orange peel, wheat, caramel. Palate: average carbonation, light body, sticky texture, dry and bitter lasting finish. Taste: caramel sweetness up front, then right into bitterness. Overall, a little unbalanced for me and nothing to stand out in the vast fields of hoppy beers.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Hazy light amber color with a small but steady head and nice lace. Piney spicy nose with lots of caramel malt and marmalade. Sweet malt flavor, candied citrus peels, high bitterness and juicy hop flavors. Full body, long bitter finish, some alcohol and not so easy to drink.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled on 5/31/2012. A - Great dark amber body. Very clear with tons of rising bubbles. 3 finger high off white head settles down to a one finger high cap. Nice amount of lacing. S - Grapefruit and spice. Its actually pretty amazing how this beer blends together the sweetness and the juiciness off the hops with some bready and spicy malts. T - Juicy grapefruit, orange juice, bready caramel malt and a spicy finish. Aftertaste is just amazingly grapefruit heavy. Not overly aggressive but it has a nice bitterness to it. Mouth feel is slick and coating. O - A nice IPA. Not the best, but damn tasty and refreshing. Really hits the grapefruit notes but still maintains a nice malt backbone.

Cloudy orange amber. Decent lace. Aroma is orange and pineapple, with a little pine. Really fruity taste, malt coming through. Very tasty, earthy and solid. Well rounded. Good beer!

Ordleken är kanske inte top notch - jaha, där gick glashuset i kras, hör jag - men ölet är inte många noslängder ifrån. Så syndigt god att inte ens helvetets eviga plågor kan avskräcka en från att lapa i sig av denna fontänorgasm. Att dricka Uinta Hop Notch är som att bli nyförälskad i denna gyllenbruna dryck, få känslorna att våras på nytt och blomma ut i kärleksförklaringar värdiga en Catullus på friarstråt. Låtom oss fröjdas medan tid är (dvs: innan glaset är tömt)!

Light, bright orange color with small white head and nice lacing. Aroma has wonderful, huge, citrusy hops. Flavor is super bitter, then sweet, with grapefruit and pine, and a woody malt finish. Love it all around. Pretty good price too.
