My first beer from Uinta and I'm excited about it.
A: A hazy golden orange/tangerine color. Not perfectly clear, but not cloudy either, which is what I like in an IPA. Lots of tiny bubbles streaming up. Good creamy head and awesome lacing on the glass.
S: Smell is pungent at first. Second whiff is of tropical hops; mangos and maybe pears or nectarines. And I get a little piney, earthy smell with a hint of crisp apple.
T: Resinous hop profile. I can taste tropical fruit, pineapple and mango. A little bitter on the back end but not overly lingering. There's something that tastes like spruce and melon in there too, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
MF: To me it actually feels undercarbed. It's smooth and creamy, but not super easy drinking as the alcohol is not very masked. Pretty well balanced beer though.
O: I enjoyed this beer. But the more I drink it the more I get hung up on that spruce and melon taste that I'm trying to identify. Overall though this is a solid IPA.
