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.

Aurelius (4651) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Misty, medium oaken gold. Smallish eggshell head. Nice toasted toffee aroma with reasonable hops. Up front, there’s a threat of this being too acidic, but it rounds out nicely. Good flavoring hops, but not overly bitter. Easy drinking, very lightly sweet, pithy mouthfeel, a little citrus rind, not hugely esteric. No real flaws. Short, mildly bitter aftertaste, doesn’t cling. On tap, Whole Foods, Tallahassee.

PorterPounder (6197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl. - Whole Foods - on tap. Sparkling medium - light golden pour, bubbly white head, light lacing. Light hint of spearmint and spruce in the aroma. Refreshing, crisp flavor with light bitter citrus notes, a touch of spearmint spiciness and a faint whisper of caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel doesn’t have that ’breathless’ quality to it that some low ABV session IPAS have - this is nice and crisp.

Finhead (1350) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Hazy, golden with a white head. The aroma has a lot of floral hops with a touch of hops. It has a light, watery texture with average carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a slightly dry finish.

Barreras (1257) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours a light copper color. Aroma of citrus, floral, and hops. Taste is similar with minimal complexity in the flavors. A hint of orange in the aftertaste with an easy drink ability.

burg326 (4650) - Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Poured a light amber color with aromas of fresh cut grass, light hops, a touch of citrus and some light malt. Flavors were grass, and some hay with some light citrus peaking through, not overly bad, just not my go to, would work for me in a pinch.

JaBier (5485) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle sample at the session IPA tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/16/15. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of grainy malt, caramel and earthy hops. Grainy malt flavor with a bit of hop.

AWISLguy (1751) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2015
12oz can from Jim’s in Mundelein. Orange pour, hoppy nose. Quite malty flavor, surprisingly after the nose, with just a touch of tanginess. 12.9

EtTuCthulhu (1371) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2015
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 This beer pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a small off-white head. The simple aroma is full of piney and resinous hops, and the taste is slightly bitter and a touch sour. Overall, the flavor is very light, making this beer easy drinking, but it does leave me wanting more. The aftertaste is a barely-there zing of hoppy piney flavor on the tongue. The palate fuses a nearly flat carbonation, medium-light body, and a slick texture.

J_man (789) - Tustin, California, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Fresh green grass and hay aromas from a slightly hazy medium yellow/golden body with a foamy white head. More grass in the taste with a dry spicy bitter component. Nice cracker malt character with a very light honey sweetness. Very light citrus and pith taste late in the game. Really nice fresh husky malt flavor in the aftertaste. Overall, a very nice and balanced session IPA.
