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 a clear yellow/gold color with next to no lacing or head retention. Smells slightly piney and malty. Has a sweeter taste than an ipa should. Just ok....kind of disappointed.

Can from Beer and Wine. Hazy golden body. Nose is hoppy with some citrus. Taste is also hoppy with nice floral and sweet notes. Some oranges and pine in there. Pretty good little session beer.

PotjeBier (2154) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2015
14 oz from tap @ Salt Lake City Airport (where there’s some nice local crafts to be had). Golden color, lightly hazy. White head, somewhat rocky. Aroma’s: piney/resinous, some citrus, some malt. Retronasal there’s more citrus to it. Flavor is light grainish sweet, light bitter. Light bodied, quite thin. Finishes moderate bitter. Lots of hops, but still mild. Pleasant.

Not big on session IPAs and this one just underwhelms. Muddled hop palate exaserbated by the low alcohol. Blah.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear bright gold with a fizzy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like pine hops, resin, smooth mellow grapefruit, and toasted malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like musky pine hops, faint resin, and faint grapefruit.

Surprised people are so harsh on this. Amazing head, nice lacing. Aroma is so amazing when you first pour it! Flavor is a bit malty, but nice bitterness, quite mellow as a session should be. Overall not bad. Maybe I just like beer more than the rest ;-)

Not too hoppy for an IPA, not very filling either. Good beer to have when only planning on having one

Beer of month club. Pours a deep gold with slight white foam. Nose of citrus and pine. It's on the taste this is obviously a session - I am so used to the big IPAs the difference is striking. There is some citrus, but it is pretty bready and much thinner than what I am used to. It's ok for a session, but think I will stick to the big guns. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
