I can only rate this okay as the quality of this beer has drastically reduced to undrinkable. What was once me almost jacking off to the smell of this beautifully fruitful smell is now seeming like junk beer. I'm not a typical reviewer as you can tell, but I know my beers. I almost think that since the big guys hold most distribution to these small guys that they might have tampered with the product in rebuttal to the law, like keeping their beer in a 140 degree warehouse. Oh well, back to brewing my own alcohol, won't miss this ripoff economy driven beer, or any of them, not one bit.

I also advise any drinker to come back to non consumer society and grow something and make beer out of it. It's easy and pretty much anyone has an extra acre besides people in city paying 1000x more just to be crowded.

Oh and, for 10 dollars a 6 pack this is a super ripoff just like all of these "craft" brews. I'll make a whole barrel for zero. Have fun with your chemical petroleum hops, it's why most beer tastes like shit anymore.

Hop Notch – IPA (7.2%) - Uinta Brewing Co. (Utah)
☆☆½

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

2.54/5  rDev -36.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Notes: Best by 09/14/14 (consumed 6/27/14). Poured into a nonic pint

A: A clear pale golden color. It produced a 1 1/2 finger head that is made of dense uniform bubbles. As the head recedes it leaves nice lacing.

S: Pine and resin scents are present.

T: First sip - metallic then bitter. After that I am getting a slight lemon zest taste - but only mildly citric.

M: Slight sense of carbonation. There is a bitter drying feel that I am not a fan of.

O: I don't like this one. It is bitter with no sweetness or citrus to balance it out. There was also a weird metallic taste and aftertaste. I would definitely pass on this one in the future.

2.58/5  rDev -35.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Light/medium amber color with copper tones; didn't really throw much of a head to look at.

Not much aroma; some resin and rubber.

Pine, resin and rubber hops come right up front; getting right up in your face like a short guy with a chip on his shoulder.

And that's all. Show's over - bye bye! The flavor doesn't pass the front of the mouth - no middle, no finish, no length, no soul, no fun.

With repeated sips one begins to get some kind of bitterness on the finish, but not enough to call it a finish.

Just like that short guy with something to prove, this one doesn't have anything to back itself up.

At least it doesn't have a bad flavor - just very little flavor.

I just read all the reviews for this beer. I was surprised to see that i only agree with 1.

Poured into a glass it's appearance is nothing special with a disappointing head. Light copper appearance.

The smell gave me some hope at first,but did'nt linger at all.
Some citrus and faint pine.

The taste was probably the most disappointing. Some citrus hops up front,but dissolves pretty quickly on the palate with no lingering finish. Where did all those delicious hops go?

Mouthfeel was minimal, i had high hopes of sticky pine.

Overall, i cant recommend this IPA. I bought my last 6pk.

Bottled 3/9/12, poured on 5/9/12 into a D'Achouffe tulip... part of a trade with eclipse54 - thanks, Cliff!

It's a rather clear marigold/goldenrod orange, muted hops but a hidden peanut butter & floral scent brings forward a bit of an iron/metallic taste with the taste. Otherwise it's pretty forward on the malts with a hop bitterness and not much else. Maybe it's because it's a couple of months old, but I'm not that hardcore about getting my ipa's straight off the bottling line. My sense is moreso that it's an ok ipa anyway; a rather straightforward summer thirst quencher. Still, i'm always a fan of trying something new, and Uinta isn't something I regularly get around here as it is.
