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 is citrus, very light pine and lemons. The flavor is citrus, fruit, faint malts and a mildly spicy finish.

Lovely fresh piney scent. Flavor didn’t quite match it though. A bit dull. Soft bitter hop. Gold pour with white head. Drinkable but nothing super.

unclemike (2871) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Golden color, white head. Sort of a blend of west coast and east coast hoppiness, leaning a little more toward the west. Very piney. Balanced with sweet malt. Would like it to be more intense in flavor

ryanscourt (1360) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Picked up from the brewery, served from a can. Fresh hop aroma but body is fairly tamed. Experience is short lived.

DocLock (9832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Can from Wegman’s. Pours hazy straw with 2-finger, off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, hops, orange marmalade. Tastes hoppy, citric, with notes of orange marm, some grapefruit, overall someone sweet, cloying, and bland.

Fatehunter (2201) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Pours a finger and half of head on a slightly hazy straw body. The aroma is pine, mango and pineapple. Nice tropical smells. The taste has a sharp pine bitter followed by a watery bitter. The texture is crisp. It has nice aroma but the flavor is a bit jarring.

ElGaucho (2388) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2016
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 (350) - 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!

agl108 (1047) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
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.
