look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Oh wow, this IPA seems to be infused with magic. The head on this beer lasts for almost 15 minutes (if poured correctly). First of all let me get started on the smell; a very light citrus scent, almost a grapefruit tinge, with overtones of a true pine flavored IPA. The taste is even more delightful than the aroma, featuring a clean not-too-bitter taste with an aftertaste of pine and grapefruit that lingers nicely. In fact, the best lingering aftertaste/mouthfeel after-feel that Ive experienced in any IPA. Mouthfeel: the best. A must grab if you are fortunate enough to find it

750 ml bottle was poured into a large tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a crazy three finger head that reduced to a puffy small layer. It is a copper amber color with good clarity and tiny bubbles seen coming up through the glass.

Smell: Tangerine, citrus, rye, caramel, and some alcohol.

Taste: Citrus comes put first. Tangerine, orange rind, and grapefruit followed by spicy rye, caramel malts, boozy alcohol, and lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, spicy, boozy, medium carbonation, mild bitterness, spicy and medium to full bodied.

Overall: This beer has a nice balance between the hops, rye, and sweetness. Very enjoyable and will search out in the future.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/31/2013. Pours slightly hazy orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky cream colored head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, pine, floral, caramel, spicy rye, bread, herbal, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance and good rye presence; and good strength. Taste of tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, pine, floral, caramel, spicy rye, bread, herbal, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, floral, caramel, spicy rye, bread, herbal, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance with good rye presence, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Double Rye IPA. All around great balance and complexity of hop and rye malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

pours a clean deep amber pour with 2 fingers of off white head, TONS of sticky lacing, great head retention. aromas of sweet caramel, simcoe hops, slight oxidation. holy crap the taste is WAY different than the smell. a very nice sweet heavy malt profile, nice rye usage, bready and sweet with resinous pine hops, getting that cat litter flavor that i can only assume comes from simcoe hops, you can definitely taste the abv on this one, it's a little bit harsh but very delicious. medium body, slightly over carbonated for my liking in ipa style.

an almost 10% 750ml bottle of a delicious ipa for under $8, yeah - this is worth trying.

Bottle into tulip (date is year 2013, month and day whiped off at some point)

Appearance- Deep Orange/copper, 2 finger off white head, good retention.

Aroma- Very spicy earthy rye snap, a lot of pine, a bready/caramel malt backbone, light citrus notes popping up as well., no real alcohol in the smell.

Flavor- Up front bitterness, pine, spicy, with herbal and earthy notes as wel, almost a woodsy type of feel at the finish, some alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel- Moderate, good carbonation, some alcohol heat

Overall- I enjoyed this beer a lot. Haven't been disapointed in Uinta yet. not sure how fresh it is since the month and day got smudged, but theres a ton of hoppiness in it. The rye could be more pronounced, but a solid choice for rye and hop fans.

Poured from a cork and cage into a shaker pint, the beer is a vibrant, dark, clear, caramel-copper coloring with a tall, frothy, chunky, off-white head that clings to all it touches, and slowly recedes into an uneven surface coating. Aromas of roasted grains, grain dust, tangy caramel, roasty highlights, earthy tones, hints of booze, and a tropical fruit hops highlight. Flavors are roast and grainy on the forward tongue, with a steady booze character that warms and pops at the same time. Robust, smooth bodied, parlaying a boozy and grainy blend throughout the palate. Roasty/toasty blend into the aftertaste, with a solid undertone of booze and rye grain characteristics. This beer reminds me of roaming around the barns and grain silos where I grew up. Wow. Smooth, slick finish with hints of bitterness and subtle dry notes at the very end. Booze is handled well throughout, and hops profiles serve as accent notes at best, and it all totally works. Solid beer.

Poured into the big Ommegang chalice. Beautiful pile of sturdy suds on the coppery amber brew. Intriguing spicy aroma. Nicely carbonated with a rich nose of pepper and flowers.

Overall, the flavor is sharp and spicy. Underneath it all is a warm glow of malt with some lip-smacking sweetness. A really pleasant resiny flavor and a touch of herbs that suddenly reminds me of grass-flavored Ukrainian vodka with the buffalo on the label. Aromatic and pitchy with a mild-mannered but persuasive generosity of hops. Moderately bitter along with more of the resins in the aftertaste. It leaves me wanting more.

Another excellent rye-brewed beer, and another reason to try everything that Uinta puts out.

C&C 750ml bottle, dated 5/17/2013.

A: Pours clear, amber orangish under a solid 2-finger thick off-white head which leaves semi-rings and clumps of lace.

N: Malty, pine, some citrus (orange, lemon, grapefruit).

T: Malty with rye spice, corky wood, herbal with pine resin. ABV is present on warming.

M: Moderate body and semi-full carbonation. Dry, bitter, spicy pine finish.

O: The CTZ hops are not as pronounced as hoped for, so perhaps a fresher bottle would have helped.

Cork and cage 750 bottled 5/30/13 poured into my Delirium glass. A three finger head that leaves lacing all over the glass.

Couldn't smell much rye, but plenty of pine in the nose.

The rye makes it presence known in the taste. It blends nicely with the hops. The alcohol was hidden well in this.

Another beer from Uinta I'm glad I got to try. Their lineup is more than solid.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. Pours a beautiful golden orange/brown (almost bourbon colored) with a good 2 fingers of very lacy, bubbly head. Head fades quickly with a medium lacing.

Initial smell of strong hops hints of pine and lemon with a minor woody smell. Not such a strong grapefruit and eucalyptus you'd expect with the type of hops used. You can definitely tell it is a Rye by the smell though.

Taste is very hop forward with a strong smack immediately as it hits your tongue. That very quickly mellows into the woody, piney, citrus flavor, almost one at time, one after the other. Finishes on a very sharp lemon note. Overall very classic Rye IPA flavor.

You would NEVER guess this beer is almost 10% ABV from the taste. This might be the most drinkable beer I've tried in some time. Found myself longing for that next sip (this my less beer-savvy friends is called "Drinkability)

Overall, if you're looking for something out there and wild, this is not your beer. If you like a classic beer that is Exactly as it should be, then you will love this. A perfect example of a Rye IPA. Somewhat surprised to see Uinta putting out something so classic, especially with there tendencies to take IPA's and tweak them here and there.

Cahoots Double Rye IPA opens to an aroma of hops, which bring sharp grapefruit rind, pine resin, and dandelion stem, and lesser notes of lemon oil and eucalyptus. There’s also a touch of sweet pink grapefruit from the hops, which mixes with a good bed of orange, berry, cherry, and peach fruit esters, and maybe even a touch of banana, to form a nice sugary backing to the bitterness of the hops, joined by brown sugar. A medium-strong pepperiness floats throughout, some of it from the hops, but likely much of it from the rye. The pepperiness isn’t overwhelming, but mainly serves to emphasize the natural anise notes of the hops, adding to the bitterness. Biscuit, Grape Nuts cereal, and light wheat bread from the malts add earthiness. As a whole, the nose is very nice, the hops and rye blending well, and while there is a high overall sugariness, everything seems nicely balanced. The only immediate shortcoming is an overall lightness to the aromas; the beer feels, especially for a 9.4% ABV IPA, that it needs a bigger introductory kick.

On the tongue, the beer opens with a surprisingly strong hop kick, considering the nose, with huge pine resin, dandelion stem, eucalyptus, and grapefruit rind notes up front, with lemon oil and anise not far behind, the hops geared heavily toward bitterness. This mixes with the pepperiness from the rye, which again catalyzes the anise notes from the hops, adding peppercorn-reminiscent overtones. Brown rye breads and biscuit add further complexity and earthiness, and dollops of brown sugar, as well as a few bits of orange, berry, and cherry fruit esters, bring in more sugars. In subsequent sips much of the nuance of the initial notes is gone, the hops being a medium-strong palate wrecker here, until much of what is left is simply pine resin, anise, pepper, and dandelion stem. The aftertaste is a bitter continuation of the main mouthful, lingering on the tongue for a long time. Mouthfeel is medium, and carbonation is medium.

Overall, it’s impressive how much hop flavor is present in here, and hopheads should put this on their must-try list. In the end, however, there’s too much emphasis on the bitter, astringent, and peppery notes, and the beer has an overly strong plant stem overtone that comes across like a mouthful of uncooked dandelion greens; a bit more sweetness and balance would have gone over well.

Bottled 5/17/13.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, rye, and citrus zest aromas. There is a bit of a dirty, wet dog smell that comes out as the beer warms up. Taste is much the same with sweet citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp but slightly medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a great balance between the rye and citrus forward hops.

Bottled on 5/20/13.There is some real good beer being brewed in Utah and this is another one.Poured into an oversized wine glass a deep rich orange infused bronze with a large slightly off white head that went over the sides even with a smi gentle pour,great rich color but the head was a little outta control.Caramel and boozy fruit on the palate along with deep resiny hops and some sharp rye,it smell very rich.A full mouthcoating feel and it glides down effortlessly.Iam gonna use the word rich again with the flavors,caramel and light brown sugar notes with some booze,the hops and rye hit hard in the finish giving a spicy/resiny lingering flavor.This is a damn fine rye/DIPA,these are the kind of beer to look for,just great.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a medium to dark coppery amber with a threefinger off-white head with decent retention and lots of pillowy lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, lightly sour fruit from the rye, and light citrus hops. The neutral malt really displays the rye nicely, exhibiting its peppery, slight sourness, finishing with good citrus and lightly herbal hop bitterness. The flavor transition is quite nice. Medium bodied with hints of creaminess. This is a nicely balanced rye IPA that shows off the hops and rye supported by a quiet, but substancial malt body. A nice rye IPA that I will buy again.

Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a thick pillowy off-white head on it. I get some nice floral and citrus tones in the nose of this, with just a little bit of the spiciness from the rye coming through underneath. Taste has a decent amount of bitterness up front, but has a subtle sweetness peeking through on the back end. Nice spicy little IPA.

Picked up last night at the COOP for a pretty reasonable $7.75ish... Poured into my HotD goblet and it produces a nice 1" white head that dies back sorta slowly... decent spots of lacing are left behind atop nice clear light copper brew.

Nose is more malt dominated than many modern DIPA's... but the rye is the big player in the grains for sure. The hops are still more than present and are fruity with light melon and a bigger tangerine/grapefruit zest.

Flavor shows all the elements as the nose, but there seems to be a disconnect with the hop bitterness... I assume the brewers did this on purpose to not takeaway anything from the rye malt... but the bitter bite is definitely not really there... instead a nice voluptuous fruity hoppiness comes out mid palate to the finish.

The rye lends to a pretty heavy body and is a bit slippery... carbonation is a bit light IMHO.. but still nice.

3.75's across the board with no real complaints... I will buy again as long as I can get it cold and fresh.

Pours a fantastic Copper, amber color. Somewhat clear with some nice carbonation. Four finger tall fluffy head that just sticks around. One of the best looking Double ipa's I've seen.

Smell isn't as hop forward as I would expect. There's a malty sweetness with an herbal, earthy hop note. Actually it's pretty unique.

Taste is very well balanced. Peppery, spicy rye notes with herbal earthy hops. Sweet malts mixed in. It's complex, there's a lot of flavors that mix very well. That peppery, herbal hop and spicy rye note are definitely the highlights.

Mouthfeel is viscus and round. The moderate to high amount of carbonation keeps this drinkable. But overall, this is a great Ipa and a great example of using rye. Balanced, spicy, peppery, and still somehow a touch malty. I would love to have this again.

A rye double IPA from Uinta. Unsure to list it as a rye beer of double IPA. But at 9.4% abv I would warrant it as a double IPA.
Orange copper look. lots of carbonation with a dirty head. Hoppy bitter taste bursts all around, very West Coast with a thick syrupy mouthfeel. The finish can be described as cabbage-y which left a dirty taste which was dismiss-able. It's refreshing in terms of taste but heavy in mouthfeel. Good beer overall and
