From a 355 ml bottle (best by April 14, 2013) into a tulip.
A-The brew is quite bright in its orange and yellow hues, and a touch murky. There is a dense, nearly-white, two-finger head that drops at a moderate pace into a thick cap, and eventually disappears.
S-The smell is full of sharp, citrusy hops. I mostly detect orange zest and lemon. The malts give a fruity, esthery fragrance, too. There is a little bit of biscuit underneath.
T-The taste is much less inspiring than the smell. The hops are softer and there is more pale, biscuity-cracker flavor. I also detect a tinny, metallic flavor. I'm not sure if the beer is too old (it is close to the best by date), but the flavors are a little oxidized.
M-The feel is soft, non-intrusive, and medium bodied. Ho-hum.
O-This beer starts off with a decent look and a pleasant smell, but the taste leaves a little to be desired. The hops just melt away and the flavor is thin and sort-of metallic. I've definitely had better session beers and APAs than this one.

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.
