Pours a nice clean orange color with a modest, dense white head atop it. Hopes can be smelled as soon as you pour it in the glass. Huge citrus notes - lots of grapefruit acidity and orange sweetness, light caramel malt late in the nose but the hops really dominates it. Strong grapefruit up front with a nice pine middle and a sweet orange citrus finish. Body is modest with low carbonation. Overall a very tasty brew. I wish there were just a tad bit more carbonation to deliver a slight bite to compliment the grapefruit and pine notes.

Can at the Lincoln Wine Bar. Pine and fruits: peach and grapefruit. A little fizzy to me--I dont like it as much as their Detour, but a solid beer.

Pleasant aggressive hop aroma, fairly predictable flavor and color profile for a flagship IPA. Nevertheless, this is a tasty brew - and in our area at least, a very affordable higher alcohol IPA.

Found as "Hop Notch IPA" in Williston, VT. - Draft - Poured a nice orangish-amber in color with a small white head. Nice hoppy aroma... piney with citrus. Flavor was citrus/lemon with some pine resin that lingered. Medium dry, bitter finish. Liked it!

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2012
THOUGHTS: Lots of hops but lots of balance, too. Nice malt backbone, but still lots and lots of hops. But the hops are never overwhelming. Rather complex hop profile. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, medium to dark, brownish orange with great carbonation and and average, off-white head that kept a nice sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel malt; moderate to heavy pine, resin, grapefruit and orange hops; and mango. The initial flavor was slight to lightly sweet and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was light to moderately sweet and moderate to nearly heavily bitter. There was caramel malt, orange hops, grapefruit hops, resinous hops, pine hops, and a little tropical fruit hops. The medium body was a little oily and then dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

Sampled a bottle poured into a tulip glass, this ale had a medium orange pour with some red hues and gave a white one finger cover of bubbles, it left nice spots and small fingers of lacing on the glass, the nose had aromas of orange and grapefruit citrus hops, toasted malt and bread, fruit and malt sweetness, the flavors were pine and fruit citrus hops, toasted malt and a little bread, some malt sweetness, the finish had a medium hop bitterness that lingered on the tongue, malt and fruit followed, the mouth feel was about medium, maybe a touch less, it was creamy and had soft to average carbonation, the nose was fruity with orange and grapefruit hops, the flavor was pretty much the same, the hops were fruity with nice toasted malt, a decent IPA drink, I would recommend.

12oz bottle, really good, welcome Uinta to Ohio. an interesting mix of pine and citrus flavors is a very good way to put it, even the grass is apparent.. solid IPA that varies from the onslaught of Citra and Galaxy Im diggin it.

Ratebeer #1,000 woo! Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, clear golden-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of strong citrus/pine hops, tropical dankness, somewhat earthy balanced with caramel malt sweetness. Taste carries on the hop punch of the nose; grapefruit, resin, herbal and almost putrid earthiness balanced with malt graininess. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, oily, dry with long lingering fruity/earthy hop bitterness. Very tasty.

On tap. Semi-glowing copper color with a white. Bitter pine and dry malt in the aroma. Taste is clean bitter hops with pine. Dry malt backbone. No tropical fruit. Clean, lightly gritty mouthfeel. Solid IPA.
