My first Uinta from Utah, I love the bottle you can get drunk and magnetize it and use it as compass since the glass is etched with cardinal directions. I've already drank half of the six pack and I'm really enjoying it so far, pours a brilliant copper color with slightly off white billowing head, leaves fine speckled lacing. Aroma big dank earthy citrus and a bit of the fine mary jane like resinous cannabis, light biscuit caramel malt backbone just barely present. Flavor upfront big juicy hops, pine, citrus, earthiness resinous flowing notes with a hint of malt in the backend, finishes semi dry I like the hops in this bottle. I will call it an almost west coast IPA, pretty damn good. Incredibly easy to guzzle, the hops don't linger with razor sharp bitterness yet have complex hop notes all day, I really dig the vibe I'm getting here. Resinous medium bodied hop oils glide well across my palate with sturdy carbonation, classic IPA.

Sure enough, a CAN surfaced, thanks to the good people at the Harrisburg Brewers Festival last Saturday (15 June 2013) who understand the importance of The CANQuest (TM)!

Today is Thursday, 20 June and I am Brother Woody, pseudo-monk with the Order of Disorder. My partner is Sam Knocken, my Old Lady is La Petite Abeille. The city is Lancaster, PA. The review you are about to read is true. No one is innocent so nothing has been changed.

The Crack was an audible masterpiece as was the inverted Glug. With two dense fingers of tawny head staring at me, I had some time to kill. Color was a deep-amber with NE-quality clarity and loads of obvious effervescence. Heavy, sticky lacing was beginning to form, so I readied myself for my first hops fix of the day. I tied off, brought up a vein, wiped a drop of sweat from my brow and leaned in for a whiff. Holy dank, Batman! Where did they load this batch of hops, anyway? Mendocino County, California? The rest of the monastery was off copying the Bible, using a Xerox, which I think is cheating, but nobody was looking, so I shot up, I mean, took a deep draught. Mouthfeel was soft and caressing on the tongue, accompanied by an immediate caramel malt sweetness, followed by a cooling minty flavor from the hops. I may be mis-remembering, but I swear that Brach's used to make a Mint caramel when I was a wee lad. Today, I am not big on sweets, but this was goood. The finish exhibited the same interplay between the malt and the hops that I noted in the mouth. I like it!

I received this from my local, in-person trader, tone77, recently and I CAN assure you that I will be re-reviewing it from a CAN in the near future. In the interim, a bottle will have to suffice.

From the bottle: "For Best Flavor Enjoy in a Glass"; "Brewed with RENEWABLE POWER Wind & Solar"; "Earth, Wind and Beer"; "Loaded by Uinta Brewing Co.".

I utilized an aggro pour, causing the formation of a dense finger of tawny head with great retention. Color was a deep amber with NE-quality clarity. Nose was of resinous piney hops and having come from a high school no-hitter this afternoon, it reminded me of pine tar. Wow! Mouthfeel was medium and the hops were notched up to the point of unmistakability. I now wonder where the demarcation line between an AIPA and a DIPA actually lies. It is somewhere around this brew. Great lacing began to form in my glass as I drank. Finish was actually only semi-dry, which is surprising, given the level of IBUs that this must register. If this measures up from a CAN, my cooler may have a new friend.
