4.11/5  rDev +2.8%

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

4.14/5  rDev +3.5%

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.

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.

3.56/5  rDev -11%

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.

A - Nice clear amber honey, HUGE off whit head, slow to leave. Lots of cling lace.

S - Spicy, rye apparent, some hops and malt.

T - Similar to taste. The malt is up front, and towards the end the rye and hops pop in and burn the malt.

M - Nice carb, medium body, good balance. ABV well hidden.

D - A very nice offering.

a: On the amber side of golden; pours with a thick, sticky white head.

s: Malt forward with caramel and spicy rye present. Some piney to be found as well.

m: Thick and sticky.

o: Glad I got to try this, the world needs more rye beers.

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.
