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.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Best before date of 6/24/2014. Clear copper color with ample carbonation. Aroma is cooked vegetables and old malt. Not nice at all.

Flavor is a a reflection of the aroma, sadly. After I get past the vegetable flavor their is a bitterness in the finish that lingers slightly. Yet somehow no real hop flavor.

Overall, I was trying to find something positive to say. I just can’t say anything good about cooked vegetables without any other flavor. This is just plain sorry. Drain pour....

Clear orange pour dense white head. Aroma of pine and malt. Tastes the same & minerals and soap. Not very bitter. Needs more bitterness to balance this one out.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Nearly clear amber with a small, off-white head. Caramel malt, lightly vegetal aroma. Taste is faint pine, caramel, floral hops. Malty. Very mild in both sweetness and hops. Drinks like a nice English bitter to me.

warhawk91 (240) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle, beer of the month. Pour is a clean clear looking copper gold with a white head. Smell is aromatic hops, with grapefruit, lemon and pine. Taste is light in body, some sweetness but light on the hop bitterness. The floral hops come through. Definitely a summer IPA, very low ABV of 4%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DiarmaidBHK (3170) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods SLC. Pours orange with a thin khaki head. Much much on the nose. Not couch hop bitterness or flavor. Definitely drainpour! I’m not sure how any one can call this an IPA.
