look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Gold with half inch foam head. Excellent solid curtain of lace. Very clear.

Smell: Nicely balanced with hops offering floral notes slightly overpowering the malt backbone.

Taste: Even better balance in the taste than the smell. Moderate carbonation. Smooth and definitely sessionable.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with very light stickiness. Carbonation seems spot on for what I expect to experience in an IPA. At 7%+ expected the mouth feel to become more of a chest feel, but the burn never seemed to set in.

Overall: Highly enjoyable. Will consider it anytime it's next to the other great American IPAs like Stone, Lagunitas, and Sweetwater.

Enjoyed on tap at Fish House Grill in Bar Harbor, ME

I used to enjoy IPA's in just the colder months-thought they were kinda heavy for the summer. Fast forward to the last few years, the number of tasty not too heavy IPA's is enough to keep me from having to switch to a pilsner when it's 90 out. Big fan of this one.

Of all places, the Chevron at the top of the Cajon Pass (SoCal) is selling 6-packs of this beer. It's the only beer from Uintas I've tried, and the first time I've even heard of it.

From the bottle it's a nice burnt orange-yellow, and just a tad cloudy. The smell isn't over-powering, but it definitely smells like you are about to have a good beer. Taste wise (I just opened my 5th outta 6)... Bitter, but not heavy. Slight fruit, but in no way over-powering. The way you might imagine a good drinkable IPA should taste, which brings me to "mouthfeel." Not heavy, easy drinking, so you better watch out because this beer, for an IPA, can be easily chugged, and or drank a bit too fast. So..., overall I'd say that if you can find it, definitely buy it. You won't be disappointed.

I for one am going to be drinking it as long as my local gas station carries it (@$10.99 a 6er. Kinda high, imo, but I'm glad they carry craft beers, so....).

Poured from a 12 oz can to a Saranac snifter glass

A- pours a slightly hazy deep golden amber with a tight white bubble head with a beautiful slimy lacing

S- sticky bud, very dank, big pine tons of citrus, oranges, mango, grapefruit and touches of sweet caramel

T- nice sticky hop resin up front on the tongue, peaches and mango and sugary grapefruit. Just a huge citrus hop blast, hop juice all the way. Finishes nice and try with a touch of bitterness

M- medium bodied, smooth drinking ipa, low carbonation. Fruity with slight bitterness and a nice dry finish

O- damn good ipa that I had never heard about. Has all the great components you want from a ipa, pine, citrus, resin, just all around some tasty shit

Best by 10/3/13.

A: Slightly hazy copper. Two fingers khaki white head. Moderate carbonation. Lots of sticky lacing. Moderate retention.

S: Good amount of roasty malt profile. Roasted, milled grain, straw. Underlying notes of grapefruit, bit of evergreen and a barely perceptable splash of tropical fruit.

T: Fairly aggressive, pine like bitterness that dominates the palate. Again, a lot of milled grain with a bit of straw and some grassy notes. Mild notes of citrus rind and a tiny bit of fruitiness. Herbal notes detected in the finish, with some bitter mint in there as well. Aftertaste is very dry. Kinda reminiscent of Torpedo.

M: Pleasingly full bodied for the style. Not heavy, but definitely heavier than most single IPA's I've come across.

O: Pleasant. Well crafted. Delicious. The lack of overbearing citrus is a welcome surprise. Very smooth across the palate, especially considering the 82 IBU's. Good job Utah.
