Hearty malt backbone with solid fresh toasted grain and biscuit character. Some nice caramel sweetness with straw and crisp grassy highlights. Silky smooth body with light fruit notes. Frank (4240) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2011
It is nice to see a brewer make a lower rather than a higher ABV American pale. I like an IPA as much as the next guy but I get kinda tired of everyone pushing their APAs to be IPAs. Let’s relax a bit on the alcohol and brew some beers we can drink shittons of, that’s what I say, especially when the beers are as good as this. It may be low on alcohol but you’d never guess based on the taste. It is full flavored w/ tons of wonderful citrus hop notes. It’s just a tiny bit sweet, enough to keep it from being watery, and has lovely soft carbonation. This is a brew w/ the seemingly mutually exclusive properties of being light and spritzy and deep and complex. I want more of it. BlackEyePA (574) - USA - JAN 27, 2013
Aroma is soft dough and grapy hop and floral nose. Appearance is great thick head, gold orange color with a lil yeast left, otherwise would have been 5. Taste is slightly tangy at first, then med body maltiness watches over with pale grain flavor, good stuff. Palate is right even with lasting and running, balanced. Overall very nice beer, hopped enough for an IPA lover, although its not hoppy the hop nose and body of the beer carries ibus well, but easy enough for the newbie.

I live here I’m biased but this is a great session pale ale. Has the body of a full strength and all the flavor too. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Pours deep golden with a head so dense it wants to sink. Wyld and weird. Decent white lacing head with decent retention. The nose is nice with a floral hop character. The flavor is like a.hoppy, citrusy, bitter, balanced malty ipa. If this is only 4% I can’t believe my taste buds!

Aroma: Tangerine with a bit of apricot; cereal malts primarily, and perhaps even a little toasty; mellow but exceedingly pleasant. Appearance: Light copper body that gives off the hue of a setting sun over a distant horizon (and other middle school poetry); carbonation is slow and supports a small skin of white, bubbly head. Flavor: Very full flavored for 4%; tangerine leads the way for most of the feature, but gives way to some light cereal sweetness, which is more than welcome here. Apricot impressions come in more toward the finish, especially in the lingering sensation it leaves after you swallow. Palate: Light/medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Gentle without being dull; refined without being stuffy. Well thought out and executed. Might be just a perfect session pale ale, if not for the tramp stamp moniker. shonobiwan (219) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a hazy dark orange color with a thin layer of head and minimal lacing. Aroma is malty but don't let this fool you. Taste is aromatic with initial malt hand then a hop burst that has hints of wild berries or a tropical citrus, Wow. A really well crafted pale ale. Kudos Uinta!

Great session beer. Slightly hazy amber - gold with little white head. Citrus, pine, and malty caramel aromas. Slight caramel sweetness,light body. Pleasant, refreshing bitterness. Paired it with burger and it was terrific.
