3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample. Pale, almost yellow beer color with a thin head. A big citrus and pine hop smell to it. I usually find the organic beers lacking, but this settles in with a little more hop than malt. American hops are there, not in extreme, but straightforward hop bitterness. Only possible ding comes from a slightly watery mouthfeel.

Soft, sunrise golden tan hue with a thinnish, but resilient head. Cold hope nose, with a gentle minerally touch. Touch of co-humulone in the body, watered down. Rounded, muted floral and bitter hop notes.

12 oz. bottle at Cost Plus. Distinct, pleasant citrus aroma. Hop bitterness up front, floral and grapefruit on a light, sweet, bready malt base. Finishes dry. Clean and crisp with good carbonation. Tasty and refreshing. A classic session IPA.

Bottle. Clear darker gold. Malted citrus aroma. The taste is heavy on garlic with light pale malts, very bland middle and finish. Decent but, not very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light orange pour, decent head. Nose is dominated by tropical fruit -- pineapple in particular. The garlic comes on harder in the flavor, backed (but just barely) by cracker malts. The beer comes off as thin, but now that I see the 4% ABV this is more forgivable. I’m not sure why it is listed as a session IPA; it doesn’t seem to carry the hop punch you’d expect for the style. That can be a very good thing in a well-balanced APA, but that’s not what is going on here. I’d drink this one in a pinch at a conference or such, but that’s about it.

Golden ginger ale. Sweet first. No head. Low carbonation. Canned. Session yes. Drunk no. Never. It is clean and an improvement over bud or bud light. A bud drinker would like this. That's a compliment. It's better for you. I feel healthier drinking this organic bull...

12 oz bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange with moderate-sized white head. Aroma is fairly grassy with some lighter tree fruits and a pronounced graininess. Flavour is bready/grainy and grassy with apple/pear and some lemongrass. Modest bitterness in finish. Pleasant.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle from BOTW, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Hazy light golden with a full, rocky white head, way too much head on initial pour.
Aroma: Oddly pungent and slightly medicinal, apple juice, yeah, lots of apples, a little zesty and resinous.
Palate: Medium body and sloppy carbonation.
Flav.: Lots of apple...seeds, peel, old juice, fresh juice, ugh, has an odd peppery note, some melanoidin maltiness, messy; dry with moderately harsh bitterness and a watery apple finish.
Something is wrong here. Not good.

I'm a fan of other kinds of Uinta but not this one. Kind of a bitter after taste. Not bad but probably won't buy it again.
