A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation along with some small particles visible floating in suspension. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down but consistently covered the surface and left thick lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of citrusy hops in the nose—grapefruit and orange seem to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy hops along with a moderate amount of bitterness. There are some hints of caramel from the underlying malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied, smooth and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very well balanced IPA that is easy to drink and delivers a good amount of hop aromas and flavors without being overpowering. This isn’t nearly as bitter compared to other IPAs that have a similar hop profile.

Easily my favorite of the Uinta offerings I've had up to this point. With a dry-hopped aroma of grapefruit and freshly cut grass, it is a tremendously well balanced beer in the mouth. Plenty of grapefruit hop flavor without being overwhelming, it has a strong malt backbone to really support and balance the bitterness. And all the while being tremendously drinkable, it almost goes down too quickly.

A well made IPA that I recommend.

Poured from my home tap with a a bright yellow-orange color and a thick, foamy head, this beer has an aroma of light citrus and woodsy hops combined with a likewise light bready malt character. The flavor is more pronounced, with a bitingly bitter combination of dull grapefruit rind and grass, although there is also a mild malty presence to provide some semblance of balance. The mouthfeel is resinous and substantial, enhancing the bold, bitter flavor. Overall, this is a solid, bright IPA that impresses but doesn't stand out.

A- Orange/pale amber body that is not cloudy, but not crystal clear either. Foamy white head lingers.

S- Nice sharp hoppy nose with pine coming through the most along with some citrus and a slight tropical fruit note.

T- Good juicy hop presence right up front. Pine comes through along with some citrus followed by a slight malt backbone.

M- Medium bodied, very drinkable with good carbonation. Goes down incredibly easy for 7%+ abv.

O- Very impressive IPA, definitely worth a try.

Pours a clear slightly orange golden color with a tight, white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of a good bit of pine and floral hops, but not quite a hop bomb.

Tastes of a good hop character up front layered on solid malts. Hops lead off with floral and pine hops along with some grass and citrus as well. Fairly bitter. Malts come in with a bit of bread and caramel and a slight amount of sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.

Overall, this was a surprisingly good IPA from a brewery that doesn't particularly stand out.

12 oz bottle dated 5/12 poured into Weyerbacher Snifter glass. Appearance is copper with 1/2 inch head and good amount of lacing. Can't wait to try this one. Smell is citrusy grapefruit. Love the smell. Taste is smooth. Not as hop forward as I thought it was going to be from the smell. Pretty nicely balanced. The hoppier the better for me usually but this is a nice balanced easy drinking brew from Uinta. First beer ever from Utah and I am very pleased with it. High quality for a lower price. A beautiful thing. I will definitely be enjoying more of these....

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a clear, slightly pale copper-brown coloring with a foamy, light, frothy, off-white head. Aromas of wet, resiny, citrus hops with a subtle toffee backbone. Flavors are hop forward and rich, with a clinging resin and bitter character. Toffee backbone remains light, but strong enough to balance the strong hops profile. Very well blended and smooth, the beer has a slightly bitter, resiny aftertaste. Solid body, with a layered lacing on the glass as you drink. The finish is smooth and clean, with a touch of bitterness to give a slight drying feel. Very solid IPA.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled on 5/31/2012.

A - Great dark amber body. Very clear with tons of rising bubbles. 3 finger high off white head settles down to a one finger high cap. Nice amount of lacing.

S - Grapefruit and spice. Its actually pretty amazing how this beer blends together the sweetness and the juiciness off the hops with some bready and spicy malts.

T - Juicy grapefruit, orange juice, bready caramel malt and a spicy finish. Aftertaste is just amazingly grapefruit heavy. Not overly aggressive but it has a nice bitterness to it. Mouth feel is slick and coating.

O - A nice IPA. Not the best, but damn tasty and refreshing. Really hits the grapefruit notes but still maintains a nice malt backbone.

12 oz botle. A volunteer swag extra from the clean-up session after ACBF.

A: Beautiful red-orange body. Light finger of froth. Solid IPA-ness.

S: Nose is extra sweet and fresh hopitude. Juicy and tantalizing. A little spicy thrown in for good measure.

F: Flavor is sweet and creamy, with plenty of resinous hop character. The finish suffers from a little metallic-ness. Love it in my music, not so much in my brews.

M: Mouthfeel is crisp and slick. High apparent carbonation.

O: Very nice beer. A solid American style IPA. Well done Uinta. A victory for Utah brewing, I must say.
