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.

12 oz can. Pours a hazy golden color with hints of orange and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some citrus and floral character with toasted pale malts. There is an off character to the nose that I can’t quite place, but it is not something I like. The flavor is rather bland with some mild bitterness. I wouldn’t have this again.

Bottle. Hazed orange-gold with a white head. Orange zest nose, lightly floral. Flavor comes off a tad sweet with a decent citrusy hop hit on the back end makes up for it, trailed by a light caramel tone. Decent.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2014
12oz can, best before 1/04/15. Mostly hazy amber orange color. Nice thin off-white head, leaves good thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft crisp light to moderate carbonation, dry finish. Piney kind of citrusy hop flavor, pretty nice. Moderate sweet, moderate bitter taste. Some mild biscuity malt. Reasonable session IPA. Lacks a lil’ something something that makes All Day the benchmark, though.

Resinous hop color. 1 inch frothy white head. Aroma is floral but more faintly fruity. Flavor is fruity and finishes with a lingering medium bitterness.

JDBaker11058 (1316) - Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Appearance: clear gold from a can, with a creamy, bubbly, eggshell-colored head, with average lacing. Aroma: nice aroma of pine, grapefruit, orange rind, apricot, lightly toasted white bread. Taste: very light flavors, with citrus and caramel, light pine, and some earthy notes as well. Finish: abrupt and slightly watery, with a ghost of grass and pine. Notes: Had a few session IPAs lately, and this wasn’t anywhere near the top of the list. It wasn’t outright offensive, but it wasn’t great.

Leighton (11355) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Can at home in CT. Pours clear orange-gold with a foamy white head. The nose has plenty of pine, some orange rind, melon. Light sweet flavor with more melon, ripening orange, Fruity Pebbles cereal, pine, grapefruit. Light bodied with average carbonation. OK balance to finish with more citrus fruits, light piney bitterness, light perfume, some pale bread. Not bad.

12 oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a nearly clear golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is grassy, floral hops with grains and a little earthiness. Flavour is grainy with grassy, floral hops, some citric notes and a little earthy character. Lighter body and carbonation. Decent.

Can. Very light IPA, thin body, light yellow with white head. Just okay for a session style
