12 oz brown bottle. Uinta bottles are brilliantly shaped and stand out amongst a wall of 3,000 beers. I love them! And their labels are eye catching, made with quality yet simple. The entire thing is just awesome! Hop Notch is a perfect example of what Uinta is all about. A yellow label with a dark green color going on. A classic pickup truck with 2 farmers harvesting hops. Just a damn traditional yet classy label. Poured this into a stemmed port glass. Or ipa glass in the eyes of some breweries.

A - nearly perfect clarity. Quite surprising its so clear with what this offers up in taste and smell. Anyway, a golden bright orange body color with a Snow White head sitting a top. A real stunner to look at. Bright and luscious looking head that's like a big white pillow with a refreshing and smart looking body. Random bubbles rise to the top keeping a sturdy ring of lace leaving lots of stick. I can't say I've ever seen stick like Hop Notch leaves. Some of its splotched in the masses while there are tiny dustings of stick all over. Very impressive!

S - a whiff of dank hops up front followed by traditional west coast pine and grapefruit whiffs. Fresh grass and some lighter fruits and citrus going on. Biscuit malt balances an overall dank funky bit of hop goodness aroma.

T - big west coast pine notes up front followed by a touch of grapefruit and citrus. The biscuit flavored malt balances the hops in a world class style. Fresh green grass gets more detail as this warms. Some sweeter caramel malt notes come out of nowhere before the funky fresh hops pick back up leaving a bit of hop spice and dank character to the finish. Delicious.

M - medium bodied and refreshing. Maybe a bit thinner than I'd prefer, but take nothing away from this dandy. It packs in loads of brilliant flavors. Saying its thin is wrong. It carries good texture and thickness while coating very nicely. It's just not as thick as some out there and I'm a thick kind of guy. But overall the feel is good, flavorful and refreshing. I could drink this all day

O - Hop Notch is a dandy of an American ipa. It's really a perfect example of an American ipa. In fact, I believe Uinta's hop notch is a perfect example of just how great American made craft beer is today. They not only brew in a way not many can pull off, but they are just producing some fine crafted brews these days. Hop Notch is a winner and some of the best stuff on the planet. Easy to find and available year round!? You bet ill be enjoying plenty of these.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a clear glass mug. Best by 9/29/14 on label. Rec'd as a thank you from good friend Walker.

A: Hazy orange-amber with fluffy 2-finger, off-white head with good retention and huge swaths of lace.

S: The aroma in this beer is very weird -- minty and herbal with a slightly sour dankness and some honeydew melon and grapefruit rind. Malt aroma is minimal to none with a hint of 2-row malt graininess. I don't get any alcohol or noticeable yeast esters.

T: The flavor of this beer is a deflection rather than a reflection of the aroma profile -- there are hints of the minty, herbal side that comes off a little grassy-weedy but not unpleasantly so, combined with a big berry-melon coated with honey flavor that lasts throughout. There is a little tobacco-like dankness and a nice crisp light caramel maltiness with a good mix of breadiness and grain flavor. Some lime and grapefruit flavors poke through too. The heavy melon and mintiness complete the finish. I don't get any alcohol or yeast flavors. Bitterness is medium-high.

M: Fairly crisp with a medium body and medium-high carbonation.

O: Hop Nosh is a good IPA which taste like it is crafted with new hops varieties with all of the melon, berry, and grassy-herbal flavors. The flavors mesh moderately well which limits this beer's drinkability to some degree. It is a little hop-sweet in my opinion -- the honeydew melon quality is very strong and a little of it goes a long way.

3.35/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy, copper color with one finger of thick, creamy head that fades to a thin cap.

Aroma: Piney, resinous hops over a nice, toasted, biscuit malt. Also some fresh hop/grassy aroma going on.

Taste: Piney hop bitterness and some grapefruit over a bready malt base. Sits a bit thick in the middle, then really bitter on the finish, slightly harsh, lots of grapefruit and pretty phenolic. Quite lingering.

The Rest: Decent, but the balance I look for in a really good IPA was a bit lacking on on this one.
