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.

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.

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.
