Hop Notch is a clear bright gold-amber color with a craggy white head on top that's strong enough to leave plenty of lacing in various forms on the glass.
The aroma shows a nice balance between hops and malts with focus on the hoppier side, specifically fresh citrus. Breads come out as well with a little caramel sweetness as some zest comes out along with orange and grapefruit flesh. All said, this smells pretty fresh.
The taste adds more leafy and piney flavors along with the balancing malty sweetness. Sure, the citrus is still there, but it's not as deep as it could be. It's still nice, though. Grassy notes come out through the middle, and It finishes a little on the pithy side.
There's a fluffy sort of lightness on the tongue, but with a good, firm body to it. Carbonation is consistent and makes for a nice, creamy flow. Resins add a little stickiness initially, but it really goes smooth.

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 )
