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.

AWISLguy (1622) - 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 (1296) - 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 (776) - 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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Tom L. Clear golden. Aroma of nice "green" and fruity hops and a grainy note. Dry flavor with "green" and slightly fruity hops and nice bitterness. Good and refreshing.

vyvvy (4540) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours clear copper with a large white head. The aroma has very dry malt, pine, powder and floral notes. Fairly light body a tinniness and somewhat sharp carbonation. The flavor starts very dry, astringent, woody, papery and some sulfur. The finish has mineral aspects as well. Not up to the others I’ve had from the brewery.

Kinz (3450) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2015
On draft at both my hotel and the SLC airport. Pours a lightly hazed light amber, slight head. Aroma is pleasant grapefruit oriented hops. Flavor matches, with a slight hint of caramel and biscuit malt, and a faint floral character. Overall a nice, sessionable session IPA. Nicely done, a great beer for the SLC ABV laws.

Aroma is floral citrus with a bit of caramel. Appearance is dark golden hazy with medium off white head that retains well. Taste is caramel malty and floral citrus aroma hopping. Very light bitterness for the style butnot out of balance. Palate is light and refreshing. Overall a pleasant beer. Very low bitterness hopping for what I had expected.Still not bad and an enjoyable drinker.
