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

a clean orange pour with 2 fingers of head which quickly dissipated. not seeing much lacing either. smells hoppy fresh.. citrusy, piney, grassy, banana, alcohol. tastes bitter up front like you're chewing on a hop pellet, hen dies down a bit to reveal a hint of a sweet/fruit like malty backbone, then a citrus-like hop taste kicks in for the finish. medium body, lightly carbonated, slightly creamy.

overall this is a decent ipa.. i really liked the black ipa much more than this one, but as far as ipa's go this is pretty decent.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Clear, light amber color with one finger of white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass and diffuse but frequent bubbles climb in the column.

S: Hops and grain are balanced but mild in the smell. Other than bread and pine, qualities are very clean.

T: Begins dry and remarkably crisp, with toasted pale malt and mild bright citrus hop aromatics. Bitterness arrives early but remains restrained, while moderate citric acidity is extended through the green herbaceous middle and into the finish. Herbaceous qualities become much more pronounced in the latter half of the profile, with detectable astringency at its height. Clean bitterness of moderate intensity lingers on the palate.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly acidic on the palate, with brisk carbonation.

D/O: A super-clean IPA that is only limited in its approachability by high abv for style and aromatic hop qualities that are far outdistanced by bitterness. Malt qualities are superior to most, meaning that it tastes good but stays out of the way. Unfortunately in this case it just leaves more space for the potent dry-hopped qualities that just aren't there.

Poured a glowing copper with a creamy off white head and exquisite lacing as I drank. Smell was a citrusy hoppiness, taste expanded to the citrus profile lemon essence and other complexities. Mouthfeel was smooth and a bit oily-surprisingly refreshing considering the abv. Overall very enjoyable and a great addition to my meal.

A-nice amber with a thick cream colored head

S-good fresh citrusy hops. Medium strength

T-comes in with a very bitter taste of herbs, not something I anticipated from the nose. It's a good herbal flavor. The bitterness is much stronger than the flavors. Good matching after-taste.

M-bitter. Medium creamy carbonation with a creamy finish. 

O-this is a very tasty and hearty IPA. It has the sort of flavor that makes me want to buy a case of it for casual drinking situations. I recommend it.

i usually prefer the crooked line from uinta, but the hop notch was not a bad brew. decent light amber color, respectable carbonation. the hop aromas leaned toward the earthy side, with elements of stone fruit (apricot, nectarine) poking around as well. malts come through without being sweet. i personally prefer more bitterness in this style, but it was not as if this ale finished sticky or sweet. felt lighter than the 7.3%, and i could see myself drinking these faster than most beers over 7%.

Amber yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a short white foam that quickly reduced to a soapy cap that left lots of sticky lacings on the glass. Tart pineapple and sweet peach aromas with a sweet maltiness beneath. Smooth, delicate feel with rich carbonation that is suppressed nicely by the malty feel. Citrus hop flavors up front into the middle that gives way to pine hop bitterness from the middle to the end supported by a sweet malty backbone. Finishes with a lingering pine hop bitterness. Nice balance of citrus and pine hop flavors.
