A 12 ounce bottle I picked up at the Boise co-op. Bottled on 01/11/2012 and drank this evening. Very impressed at both the individual bottle dates and the speed with which Uinta was able to get a batch up to Boise; well done. Poured into a DFH signature glass...
Pours a translucent gold color with about a half inch of frothy white head. Retention is short, but a constant stream of bubbles from the base of the glass does keep a small mound and ring fueled on the surface of the liquid.
Aroma is of piney, resinous hops, lemon and orange citrus, faint grapefruit, some hay, a touch of clove, and more pine. Very hop forward, and undoubtedly an IPA.
It tastes of hops the whole way though. Citrusy hops start it off, bitter piney hops carry it through the middle, and it finishes with some spicy, earthen hops. More pine and a faint bit of grapefruit come back on the finish. Really, just liquid, delicious hops.
Mouthfeel is great; ample carbonation lends to a clean, refreshing finish and keeps any pine resin off the palate. Crisp on the tongue, and goes down very easily.
Overall, a solid IPA that I will certainly return to. Also feel the need to reissue the compliment to Uinta on freshness (dating and shipping); bottled and into my stomach in less than a week, certainly an impressive feat for a brewery in another state.

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 )
