12 ounce can poured into a tulip glass

A: Orange, amber color with a nice creamy fluffy white head, lots of lacing, not much head retention, cloudy, some carbonation.

A: Sweet malts come through really strong, fresh pine needles, grapefruit, citrus rind, not getting any alcohol on the nose.

T: Piney, citrus rinds, bitterness, sweet malts at the end on a dry finish, tastes great.

M: Medium mouthfeel, dry finish.

O: I really liked this, citrus bitterness reminded me of fresh grapefruit rind, citrusy bitterness is prevalent, I picked up a strong malt presence, but really leans towards the bitter side than maltier side. This beer is definitely worthy of another purchase.

Hop pour a rich copper color. The aromas are mostly of brown bread and nuts. The taste is an interesting combination, I get some citrus, grapefruit and orange in particular. I also sense a bit of brown sugar. It drinks like a single IPA, but has a much flavor as most doubles. The creamy, smooth texture makes this go down very well.

Really surprised by this one coming out of Utah. CT finally started getting Uinta a few months ago, if I recall correctly. Really great IPA here, not too heavy on the body but with some malt backbone to play with the hops. Hop note is front and center, nice citrus and pine.

Appearance: Gold, lots of particles, good head.

Smell: Nice citrus aroma, lemon.

Taste: Moderate sweetness, then tangerine and lemon citrus come through. Moderate bitterness.

Overall: Picked up a single to try of this new IPA to Minnesota. I was impressed, the tangerine flavor was a unique treat. Interesting lemon flavor also for an IPA.

Every can kissed by St. Hoptimonium himself. Had it most recently out of aluminium. Not as good as the bottle, I have to say. But at $10/6, its a refreshing alternative to the usual suspects in my cooler. I do like the citrus-ness of the hop character and it is not overly malty.

Dark orange/Amber color. Nice big fluffy off-white head that lasted well and gave some great lacing all down the glass. Got some flowery and tropical smells with a bit of biscuity sweetness. Lots of grassy/piney flavors, but not as much sweetness in the flavor. Nice thick creamy mouthfeel, with a clean dry finish. Nice beer, I'll continue to look for this one.

A great example of what hoppy beers can be. Luscious and uncompromisiing, yet full of pine, citrus, and Angst.

Had never heard of Uinta before stumbling onto a 6'er at Harris Teeter. Quick BA check confirmed this was an IPA I needed to try. Poured into a tulip for review.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful dark, clouded honey with caramel-colored head. Web-like lacing. Gorgeous!

Smell: Whets the appetite with citrus, sweet caramel, and biscuits.

Taste: Excellent "west coast" IPA. If you're craving oranges/grapefruit, herbs, and a little hop spice, this is your beer.

Mouthfeel: very smooth with just a touch of cloying resin.

Overall: Excellent; if the appearance, smell, and taste don't win you over, the $8.99 for a 6'er definitely will. A quality IPA without the jacked-up price! Love the compass in the bottle!

Thanks Uinta!

Picked up Hop Nosh at Bob's Liquor while I was driving through Winfield, KS. I knew Uinta began shipping to KS recently and there they were. I just had to decide which ones to get among the many others I wanted to take back to OK. Hop Nosh seemed logical - a year rounder named after some legal turns. Perfect fit for me. Poured most of the 12oz into my Belgian tulip and she's a beauty - deep amber with nearly three fingers of off white delight. She has that thick sip marker lace that we all dig. This is a beer that needs to warm a bit before it peaks. It stuffs the nostrils with caramel cinnamon malt, fresh cut pine, and bitter citrus fruit rind. Flavors follow the nose to a T. Medium full body is slightly prickly, but good in the mix of things. In the vast universe of year round IPAs, this has an advantage over many, but may get lost in the long cold vast spaces between those stand out IPAs we pine for.

Great price for a six pack. $8.99 for beer of this quality is very good. Nice soft white head and a hazy orange appearance. Nice carbonation and tastes of hops, pine and grapefruit. Not a trace of alcohol and very easy to drink. Can get you in trouble with the abv.

Decent IPA. Combines an abundance of hops with a smooth malt profile. Lots of better local choices or else this would be a constant in my fridge.

12 oz. bottle into a snifter. Pours a clear copper with 1 finger of slightly off-white foam. Nice tropical fruit nose - grapefruit, mango, pineapple. I also get some notes of pine and spice. Medium weight, and nice and creamy. There's a hop bitterness right away upon tasting, which quickly fades and gives way to sweet grapefruit and pineapple. Finishes smooth, and leaves a piney/hoppy bitterness on the taste buds.

Overall, a very well made IPA. It's slightly more pine-forward, but does have some good fruit character. Perfect amount of bitterness. This one stands right up there with Torpedo, in my opinion.

I first tried this beer after having Uinta’s Dubhe. I really like everything that Uinta stands for and all of their beers are excellent. I poured this into a worthy glass after chilling it in the freezer for a bit. It has a modest 7.3% ABV and 82 IBUs.

Look: Pours a crisp and clear golden yellow. I can’t get over how beautiful this beer looks which is like liquid gold. The clarity is stunning and it has a mild head if poured vigorously which settles down into a snowy foamy cap before you even finish it. Finishes with nice lacing on the glass.

Smell: I get a nice malty aroma laced with hops and many flavors, but take a big whiff, because the aroma isn't very strong.

Taste: I get zesty orange peel, coriander, lemongrass, tangerine, spices, herbal notes, and hoppy heaven.

Mouthfeel: The beer drinks really well and has a smooth mouthfeel and plenty of carbonation. Also leaves a nice subtle resinous coating on the tongue.

Overall: This is a great beer that is refreshing and great at the end of a long day. It is also good in the summer when you have finished mowing the lawn or munchin’ some nice carpet, drink one or two of these down real crisp and cold.

Pour: light orangish amber with a thin head that quickly dissapated and left a thin lace on the glass.

Smell: light citrus notes with heavy hop spice.

Drink: quick hit of malt sweetness, followed by bitter hop oil, quickly followed by light spicy citrus notes with a light hop lingering taste.

Feel: medium body, but quite drinkable.

Overall: quite drinkable, not the best ipa ever, but far from the worst.
