Poured into a snifter.

4.25 A: Moderately hazed orange amber color. Two fingers of creamy beige head. Retention is good and tons of lacing is left.

3.5 S: This is the sweet and fruity version of the DIPA. Mango, pineapple, and apple are strong. Caramel sweetness with some graham cracker and breadiness. Strong neutral malt base. Rye gives some earthy notes.

3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Big neutral malt sweetness, mix of tropical fruits, apple, and peach. Mild bitterness pokes through the sweetness. Caramel, toastiness, earthy rye.

3.75 M: Heavier body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy, smooth, with well hidden alcohol.

3.5 D: Solid beer. Give it a go if you like the barleywine-style DIPAs.

This is a big beer....due to flavor, carbonation and alcohol. The Cahoots pours a hazy copper with slightly off white head that is not leaving much of a lace. The scent carries malt, some sweetness and bitter hops. The taste falls more in line with an English IPA than a West coaster. It starts sweet then finishes bitter. The mouthfeel is full in body with big carbonation. Overall this is a good beer and certainly worth a try...thank you my neighbor.

We crack the cage and cork, pouring a brew of deep, scarlet-tangerine orange into our oversized tasting snifters. A two and a half finger tall head is produced, showing intensely tight cohesion between the small, gingerbread colored bubbles. Retention is everlasting, showing a single, wet, dripping sheet of lacing as it finally recedes. Carbonation appears to be highly active, with no sediment or haze noted. The aroma gives bright grain of rye, amber, and roasty caramels, sweeter notes of molasses, salt water taffy, white sugar, sweet booziness, salted caramel apples, and butter pecan iced cream, with soy sauce saltiness, floral potpourri, and coppery metallics. With warmth comes buttery diacetyls, light banana and bubblegum esters, garbage bag plastics, red cherry and plantain fruitiness, vanilla cream, and spicy herbal and floral hoppiness. Our first impression is that the flavoring is much sweeter and fruitier than expected, with a malt bill that sings true to the style and desires of the brewer. As we sip, the taste begins with tannic breakfast tea, lemon rind oiliness and zest, rosemary and black pepper spiciness, sweaty caramel malt sweetness, butterscotch drizzle, bitter rye grain bite, macadamia nut butters, soaped and lemony hops, fresh herbal mint leafiness, and cherry cough syrups. The middle peaks with white sugar sweetness, fruit punch juiciness, sappy and citric hoppiness, soured lemon cleaner, musty basement, continued bittering rye grit, toasted almonds, dirty pales, warming fusel booziness, and that aromatic butter pecan sweetness. The end washes through with envelope adhesive, burnt hickory, dried sage and rosemary, lime and grapefruity rind bite, sticky licorice, buttery diacetyls, warming amber and roasty caramel maltiness, warmed toffee, dried waxiness, and a sweeter, deeper, scotch ale smokiness. The aftertaste breathes of wheat table crackers, rye and chalked caramel graininess, heavy citric hop juiciness, honey sweetness, paper towel dryness, black pepper booziness, plastic and Band-Aid phenols, gravel, baker’s yeastiness, green grassiness, Earl Grey tannins, nori, butterscotch caramels, sourdough breadiness, browning apples, tinny and coppery metallics, and brushes of light amber grain sweetness. The body is full and chewy, and the carbonation is lightly medium. Each sip gives nice slurp and smack, with slightly lesser cream and froth to the lip. The mouth is left coated, but quickly dips into a tannic and oily astringency of puck. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks and shares well.

Overall, the best component of this beer is its flavoring. Here we get a nice showcasing of the malt bill, with a nicely complementary hop profile that works with, rather than competes against, the base flavoring. This is also true of the aroma, with an even sweeter edge to be seen here. This beer fits perfectly into Uinta’s “Crooked Line”, acting as an easy standard, but also bringing some zest and freshness to the table, much in the way that their Detour IPA does. We also very much appreciate the pun of the name, as they share this recipe with a home brewer they know. It also makes us feel like we are very much in Cahoots, rating this beer together, in the same vein in which it was brewed. This is a great beer, and anyone who appreciates the brewery, or the burgeoning rye beer style, will get a kick out of this one.
