Hop Notch – IPA (7.2%) - Uinta Brewing Co. (Utah)
App: Pours a rich amber with a nice one and a half finger off cream white head that retains well and leaves high, tight lacing all around the glass. Slightly cloudy, but not against style.
Smell: American piney and resinous hops dominate nose with a slightly sweet, tropical fruit note to them. Hints of passion fruit and grapefruit. Slight hint of overripe banana and cantaloupe. Malt is very faint and slightly biscuit like. Slight solvent, but not overbearing.
Taste: Pretty much falls in line with the aromas in the nose, with some pretty severe alcoholic heat after the swallow. Malt balance is a little off, with not quite enough sweetness to counterbalance the massive hop bill in this one. Hops are good overall, beginning with some pretty strong herbal notes that are taken over by more piney flavors. Eventually overcome entirely by the alcohol heat.
Mouth: A little thin bodied. Carbonation is low, which doesn't compliment the style at all.
Home tasting, 12oz can into Snifter. 1/27/14.
Serving type: can

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 )

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.
