look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served an orange-amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head has fairly good retention, eventually fading to give a nice level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is a nice abundance of sweet citrus and some lighter tropical fruit as well as more bitter hop smells of a grapefruit and pine nature.

Taste – The taste begins with a strong bready base with some light caramel sweetness and a mild grapefruit hop bitterness. As the taste advances further the caramel is lost to lighter fruit flavors in nature. While this occurs so to does the citrus grapefruit bitterness increases. As time advances however the grapefruit hop flavor gives way to a piney hop flavor, which at the end of the taste, leaves a bitter yet fairly balanced flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly creamier side with the carbonation level being below average and light. The combination of the two overall, gave it more of a cask beer feel, which was nice for the hoppy and malty flavors of the brew.

Overall – A pretty nice IPA with a good balance between breadiness, sweetness, and hop. Well worth a try.

This IPA pours yellow/orange slightly hazy. Small head not much lacing.

Nice aroma. Orange and lemon citrus, really nice balance with biscuits, rye breadiness, pungent hop aroma. me likey.

Similar to nose, more orange zest and grapefruit, again balanced well with malts, really clean bitterness and finish.

Enjoying this IPA quite a bit...please sir may I have another

Good beer from....UTAH!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

this is a very satisfying hop forward west coast style ipa.... dry with bite... and a decent malt backbone.

pours an opaque orange amber with a thin white head, leaves little lacing. the smell is solid, fresh piney hops and a little apple.

the taste follows, a slightly oily drink bites the tongue and upper palate and leaves a strong piney taste in the mouth. it is balanced with crisp apple and smooth pear.... the rich malt coats the back of the throat, citrus and maple at play.

this is an excellent ipa -- do not over look, it holds its' own with Union Jack and Torpedo and others....

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottled on 6/19/2012

A: A medium amber with an orange hue and excellent clarity. The persistant rocky, white head settles to a thin film but never goes away.

S: Citrusy American hops dominate the aroma at a moderate level with a light alcohol note. The hops have a pleasant grassy character suggesting a decent amount of dry hopping and a light tropical fruit aroma. There is a light malt sweetness with slight caramel notes that ar revealed as it warms. There are also some very low fruit esters, just enough.

T: Hop flavors dominate being mostly citrusy, followed by grassy herbaceous then slight tropical. The strong hops flavors are supported by a moderately-strong hops bitterness and a supportive moderate malt sweetness and a slight caramel flavor. Alcohol is almost as strong as the bitterness and malt but remains soft yet strong, a little more and it would become solventy but it's kept in check.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. There is a medium amount of warmth with this beer along with a slight creaminess. Despite the substantial hop bill this doesn't have any astringency.

O: There is more hops flavor in this beer than almost any beer I've had; it would have been a thing of beauty and wonder if there had been more hops varieties than being so focused on the citrus hops. This is still a solid effort and I will look for other beers from Unita.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy copper color must be bottle conditioned because some floaters hanging around. Cream colored thumb sized head falls to scum leaving behind some descent lace.

Aroma is nice tropical fruits and floral notes, nice sweet mellow hops not slam in your face hop bomb. very pleasant aroma though enjoyable and relaxing.

Taste is kind of like the nose but more hop intense. Citrus bitterness dominating with some fruity and floral notes but lingering citrus bitterness lingers through out. Just enough malt sweetness to hold the hops.

Mouthfeel is light medium with lightly peppy carbonation that seems to fit this brew just fine.

Overall all an enjoyable IPA extra credit for the easy to find and read born on date.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger white foam head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

Resinous hop aroma with a nice balance of earthy and sweet fruit notes countered by a caramel malt backbone. Floral with hints of grass and pine countered by grapefruit, pineapple and orange peel. Malt presence is strong with caramel, toffee and biscuit.

Medium bodied with a complex hop profile that's slightly hindered by a prominent malt backbone. Nice balance of earthy and sweet notes with dry, piny bitterness giving way to tropical and citrus fruit flavor. Hints of grass, soil and pine needle countered by pineapple, grapefruit and orange peel. Underneath, there is a strong malt backbone with hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit. The hop profile is pretty nice but the strong malt presence overpowers it a bit too much for my liking.
