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.

It's fascinating how one's palate can evolve after drinking several varieties of beers, in this case IPA's. I actually had this on tap at Brixx wood fired pizza two years ago. At the time I actually liked it, thought it was awesome. I even got more of it then.
I've moved on to many other different IPA's, and thought I'd revisit this after a couple of years. I hate it now!!!!
What the heck? It doesn't have the citrus notes of a world class IPA, the flavors are off. Bad after taste. Amazing. I got through a quarter of one and did a drain pour with the other 5.
As my palate has developed, I don't like it, and don't know how I ever liked it in the first place.
Everyone's palate changes and develops as they experience more brews, and it certainly has with this, but not in a good way.

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.
