12 oz. bottle. Bottled on 8/27/12.
Clear, brilliant burnt copper with golden edges. Good inch of creamy, moderately dense, light beige head. Nice lacing. Some cookie and fruit malt hide beneath big citrus, pine, and resin hops.
Herbal hop bitterness and toasted malts up front. Hop bitterness becomes citrusier and spicy. Cookie, caramel, and biscuit malt sweetness fills out the palate. Pitchy, sappy bitterness into the finish. Lingering fruity sweetness and piny, resinous hops. Medium bodied, with a creamy feel. Very nicely done. The best IPA brewed in Utah? Maybe.

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.
