Live Review. Poured from one of the 6 12 oz. bottles that I bought at World Wines & Liquor in Mentor about one month ago into a clean, clear glass. Best before 05/16/13 stamped on the label. Admittedly, this was a clearance item at World Wines & LIquor so it may not be the best representative of the beer. With that in mind, here is my review.
A Less than one inch thin off white head that dissipates way too soon even for an extra pale ale. The body is a forgettable slightly hazy but translucent yellow brown. Meh. 2.5
S Muted floral hops over a light barley smell. Not dynamic, rather average. 3.0
T Taste flows directly from the smell with addition of barley husks clearly tasteable. Taste is too thin for me and again, not dynamic, interesting. In fact, it is really forgettable. 2.0
M Too much on the thin side for me. I know that an EPA is not supposed to be big, bulky or thick but really, this is too thin. 2.5
D/O Drinkability I suppose is good but really, I would not reach for a second one of these. Overall not a good EPA. 2.0
Notes: My first one of these was about a month ago and I recall it tasting exactly the same at that time.

Kudos for the can.
A: Pours an amber, copper in color with a very small amount of head that fades into a bit of film very quickly. Carbonation seems low. Looks more like an amber ale than an extra pale ale.
S: The aroma is hop dominant with an across-the-spectrum representation of floral, pine and citrus. There is a definite malt presence as well, mostly honey and bread, and some earthiness lingering in the background.
T: The malts shine up front with some bread and roast giving way to a bitter, lemony citrus hop middle and finishing with a mix of the two. Aftertaste is bitter citrus and bread.
M: Light bodied with lively carbonation that prickles the tongue, there isn't much substance here except maybe a hint of chewiness. Goes down very smooth and finishes a bit dry. Quite sessionable.
O: Not quite what I was expecting, it came off more of an amber/pale ale hybrid to me. That said, it was balanced, tasty and quite sessionable. I still have yet to find a brew from Uinta that blows me away, but this is probably one of their better offerings. I wouldn't seek it out, but it would be a nice companion on the trail or during a picnic. Cheers!

Dark golden color, a little haze. Lots of carbonation rising up. Thick rocky head.
Fruity, some citrus, clean malt.
Clean malts, a little caramel and touch of honey. Fruity, apricot. Mild-medium hop bitterness, grassy-citrus. Finish is crisp and bitter. Body is crisp, refreshing, dry, smooth.
It's a very good American Pale Ale. Very sessionable.
