Corked 750ml bottle from La Primera with a "bottled on" date of 5/28/2013. Pours a coppery orange with an orangey-white head leaving terrific circles of lace. Aroma has sweet fruits, caramel and citrus. Yummy. Taste is of sweet caramel, grainy rye, pine and grapefruit. A nice solid blend of distinct flavors. Medium bodied and quite dry. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet. Love the rye component. Uinta hits the notes properly ... always ’plus something’, it seems. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2013

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Pine, rye and citrus dominate. Very good. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
750, corked and baled. Pours a murky dark amber with a dense and pillowy light tan head. Big hot sharp piney sweet nose; could do with a bit less alcoholic sharpness there but that fades with time a bit so it’s not a big demerit. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel and lots of pine on the mid palate. A bit sweet. Long peppery dry rye spice finish.

Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark amber color with a large and lasting light tan head. The nose has a nice dose of citrus and pine resin. Lots of malt on the tongue at first. Starts off slightly sweet with heavy rye notes, lots of bread, and moves to citrusy and resinous hops. Well balanced and the ABV dries things out on the back end without being overly boozy. Very solid offering. Travlr (25863) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle. Clear deep amber color, massive cream colored head. Aroma of spiced scotch and resin. Taste is spiced rye bread pine resin. Tasty and full bodied. msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle from Binny’s Orland Park. Pours hazy dark amber with off-white head. Aromas of caramel malt, rye, bread, pine, and citrus. Flavors of chewy malts, rye, tropical fruit, pine, and citrus. Finishes with malty backbone and fair amount of hoppy bitterness. Pretty solid. superspak (5891) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/31/2013. Pours slightly hazy orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky cream colored head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, pine, floral, caramel, spicy rye, bread, herbal, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance and good rye presence; and good strength. Taste of tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, pine, floral, caramel, spicy rye, bread, herbal, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, floral, caramel, spicy rye, bread, herbal, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance with good rye presence, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Double Rye IPA. All around great balance and complexity of hop and rye malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering. ryecatcher (1459) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2013
750mL bottle. This one had me wondering, as it was bottled in May and well, you know how IPAs age... but I digress. Pours a nice, clear, burnt orange with a big fluffy off-white head with excellent retention and crazy lacing. Nose is so so as far as what I was expecting, kinda pissy with some malt and citrus. Mouth on the other hand delivers - big bodied, sticky mouthfeel, resinous hoppiness on a malty backbone full of orange, pineapple and bread, then a sweetness (is there honey in this one?) followed by a creaminess, and a pleasant medium bitter finish that mingles with the sweetness and lingers. Second favorite Uinta brew I’ve had (that Baltic porter they did -- Sea Legs I think is what it’s called) being my favorite. Really nice IPA
