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.

bottle from the brewery brewed 6/14/10 consumed 7/28/10. clear orange golden brown with a soft frothy off white head and clingy spots of foam. it smells largely of pine.... also wet wood, citrus (especially orange) and spicy hops. the flavor is quite similar... very dry and a bitterness on the finish. crisp medium body. dry and very refreshing. 6/3/6/4/14/3.3

Onionkid (366) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle. Light orange hue with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is pretty disappointing. It tastes like they took a good IPA, then watered it down so they could make a larger batch, haha! The slight malts and large hops I was expecting all taste too watery and ruins the beer. The finish is the same - instead of a strong, bitter finish you’re left with a ’blah’ hoppiness. Don’t recommend it for hopheads. 4% alcohol.

Nickls (1849) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle. Light, clear copper orange color with a foamy white head that stays well. Caramel and citrus hop notes and some light fruits. Pretty tame on the hop front in terms of the taste, and way too much of a malt balance for me. I mean, I get that it’s not trying to kill the palate, but a bit more is needed. Bit watery. Just OK.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Copper pour, creamy mostly white head. Aroma of christmas trees, grapefruit peel, honey and unripe stone fruit. Flavor has some up front malty sweetness followed by a light citrus bitterness and a bit or resin. Not bad.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 23, 2010
12 oz bottle from a tourist trap in Bryce. Hazed orange-gold with a white head. Orange zest nose, lightly floral. Flavor comes off a tad sweet, but a decent citrusy hop hit on the back end makes up for it, trailed by a light caramel tone. Decent.

unclemattie (4189) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Short 12oz bottle. Pale light orange color, tall foamy white head. Aroma of honey citrus candle. Very floral and citrus dry hopped aroma. Very dry hopped. very floral. Flavor has a bit of a watered doen malt flavor. Very bitter, not much sugar or caramel notes detected. A bit disappointing as far as any flavors go. Finishes very watery and thin. Aroma is very welcoming, just no body or flavor. Boo. 7,5,2,2,10

This was very much a let down. Citrus scent is there, a tad bitter but no depth. Very light in the pants.

Appearance: Clear copper with a nice white head and medium lacing left in the glass

This is so much better on tap at the brewery than bottled.
