12oz. bottle poured into a tumbler glass
A- crystal clear orange-amber with two fingers of fluffy white head. Leaves lacing down the glass that is incredibly impressive.
S- Centennial hops (grapfruity) with a sweet malt backbone.
T- Bell's Two Hearted of the west. Big blast of centennial hops. The bitterness almost tinges to metallic likeness but not quite. The sweet malt that lies underneath perfectly balances.
M- light side of medium bodied. Moderate drying on the end, and it has a moderate carbonation.
O- scarily close to Two Hearted. Two Hearted is just smidge more refined, but this is really, really close. Good stuff.

Uinta keeps selling me with their unusual bottles and color-saturated labels, but I've liked what I've had from them and don't know why I don't seek it out more. I grabbed a couple of these IPA's in a mixed six from World Market today. Label depicts a couple of farmers unloading some huge hop cones from a wagon.
Pours a rusty, crystal-clear amber. Nice head of fine off white bubbles which settles down in a moment to a nice looking collar. Visually impressive. But it doesn't stop there. The nose is just awesome: super-tropical, floral, mango, pineapple, booze - if I could drink this through my nose, I would.
Flavor is really hop forward, moderate-high bitterness, with a tiny amount of sweetness, citrus, and light malt. Actually has a pretty light and elegant feel to it given the big, fruity nose and 7.3 abv. Still pretty oily and full, with delicate effervescence.
Overall, I think this is a great IPA that I would totally get again. Welcome to my rotation, Hop Notch.
