COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale is a style of ale noted for its high hop content. The style of beer received its name in the 19th century when England controlled the country of India. With no refrigeration or pasteurization in those days, the British were challenged to brew a beer that would survive the long, hot trip to India and upon arrival, satisfy the British citizens and thirsty troops stationed there. In discovering that the hop flower is a natural preservative, the British brewed an ale with an abundant amount of hops, and it worked! Hundreds of years later, the style is still the favorite of many a craft brew drinker. Uinta’s Trader is a well balanced version of the traditional India Pale Ale. The beer is dry hopped with a generous amount of Centennial hops that give it a nice floral finish and a citrusy assertiveness without jeopardizing its malt flavor.

Pours gold into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Caramel and earth aromas. Dry with dark earthy caramel and resin front to back.

From a bottle. Pretty weak for an IPA and Uinta for that matter. Expect more from these guys. Not acceptable to make a mediocre beer and call it a session IPA in an attempt to make it passable. Pours on the golden side of IPA. Not much in the way of aroma or taste- hops are way too subtle for the style. Just bland and somewhat boring. in all respects- would not order again.

Pint pour, moderate gold with medium sized off white head. Nose is somewhat lightly floral with mild to medium hop. Flavor has some sweetness, almost fruity but not of the typical hop flavors... Clean drinking though, and honestly for 4% it’s not bad really. May not be a top ten session IPA but I’d order this one again

Bottle. Musty/stale vegetal caramel malt aroma. Slightly hazed honey gold with a large off-white head. Vegetal malt and weird saccharine type flavor. Light watery body, soft carbonation. Blech.

BiereLuc (861) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Bière orangée, voilée, vêtue d’une belle mousse blanche. Le nez est timide mais floral. En bouche, une fine amertume nous berce alors que des saveurs maltées se dessines en ombrages sur l’arrière-plan. Des saveurs métalliques gâchent un peu la donne et rende l’esprit de «session IPA», soudainement, moins abordable et à propos. C’est bien sans plus.

12oz bottle. Pours a light golden with a nice looking white head. Not much aroma, especially for an IPA.. In a blind tasting I would not even guess that this is an IPA. The hop flavors are subtle to say the least but given the low abv it is pretty good for what it is.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Tap at Il Viaggio in the SLC, UT airport. Pours golden amber with a white head. Aroma seems resin and caramel. Med body or nearly. Flavor is very strong resin and earthy hop. Tastes very good.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of 07/24/14. Amber-copper pour with a good sized white head that fades and laces. Maybe a chill haze. Pine and floral hop notes are in the aroma with the roasted malts being in the background. Medium body. It is a session IPA and is pretty traditional with an above average hop bitterness mingling with the roasted caramel malts. But no better or no worse than others in its class.

Light orange color. Missing the hoppy aroma of most ipas. I really enjoyed the first sip, but after that this beer has left a lot to be desired. Just average

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2014
Aroma of pine and soap. (Not ’pine soap’ mind you.) Hazy orange color, very still. Moderate bitter flavor, sweet aftertaste, not much going on. Crisp up front but otherwise very light and mellow. Sessionable it is, unfortunately this is just a hoppy blonde ale.
