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.

Can. Can’t identify the aroma characteristics, but it’s not particularly favorable. Cloudy amber with not much head and little to no lace. Reasonably good session IPA. Doesn’t blow me away. Basically about middle of the road among the 10 or so session IPAs I’ve had.

matty (307) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a thick white head leaving a little lacing on the glass. Aroma is nice - pine and some citrus hops in the background. Medium body, taste leans a little to the malt side although the hops are present. There is a little grain/cereal flavor as well. Finish is slightly bitter, but not overdoing. Pretty good!

12 oz. can. Poured clear orange with pillowy off white head. Tremendous lacing. Sweet malt, light floral and citrus flavor. Fairly average session IPA but fairly enjoyable.

ordybill (936) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. the appearnace is a clear, fairly dark yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is complex with hops, citrus and yeast. The taste is heavy with malt and has a hop finish. Overall, a really good IPA.

ElCapitan22 (321) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2015
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.

altonbrownd (4786) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 23, 2015
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 (2273) - 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.
