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.

For my first beer review I thought I'd start with a somewhat recent favorite of mine. This beer, although an IPA, is extremely drinkable, even for someone who claims to hate hoppy beers. Despite it's slightly bitter floral aftertaste (that any decent IPA SHOULD have) it's surprisingly smooth and refreshing, especially considering it's 7.3% alcohol content. Also with that being said, this beer is easy to have a few of without realizing how strong it is so indulge with caution.
Uinta has become one of my favorite breweries, ironically out of Utah, where you might have trouble finding this fine crafted brew in it's true form. (However of you get the 3.2 version, this suddenly becomes a great session ale :-D )
Enjoy!

Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a big, creamy, sticky head. The aroma is not particularly potent, a nice respite from the big beers I was enjoying the other night. Smells of pine and fruit, but mellow - not too sweet. Tastes nice, mild bitterness on the finish, echoes the smell. Mouthfeel is pretty darn good - creamy and tingly, but not too much so.

My fist offering from Uinta. Very nice.
