On tap at Taps, Petaluma, as Uinta Wet Hop Pale, 4.2% ABV. Lack of body was maybe not a great surprise, but the lack of hoppy freshness in both aroma and flavour was. Maybe the biggest disappointment during my visit to California.

Given the yeast on the tongue, it's surprisingly close to clear. Dirty copper color. Nice, lasting head which leaves a blanket of lace.

The smell is like a freshly opened bag of hop pellets.

Very much reminds me of a hombrew. There's a yeasty, dirty malt start. A bit "a ready". Not sweet but certainly not dry, either. Neutral hop bitterness in the swallow. It tastes old school, no grapefruit, spruce or flowers. Just "green". Rich body with a muted level of bubbles. Easy to drink. Think superb homebrew.

As the hop harvest season hits Utah, those freshly picked cones find their way into the brew kettle at Uinta Brewing. Using the ready and steady pale ale, Cutthroat, the ale takes on a fresher and greener hop mantra.

Its common looking pour is bright amber with maybe a tinge of dry-hop haze. Its lathery foam cap churns with the scent of caramel, light toast, nuttiness and those green and grassy hops that seem to tease the senses. Its forward taste once again visits the caramelized malt sweetness and brings out the toasted savoriness of bread crust and candied pecan.

Once the malt sweetness settles on the tongue, the palate receives wave after wave of moderate hop complexity. Grapefruit and oranges start the show, but a quick follow-up of fresh grass clippings, raw leaf, citrus stem and herbal sassafras bring a bright and earthy taste to attention before the sharp bitterness and astringnecy of pine resins and peppercorn finish the show.

Medium-bodied yet firm, a late notion of graham cracker gives a dry maltiness to the taste while the hops dry the ale to a mid-dry stature. Trending grassy, stemmy and herbal, the beer displays those full chlorophyl-laden green flavors well, but the maltiness of the American pale ale begins to limit their effectiveness late, keeping the ale from utmost crispness, cleanliness and refreshment. Perhaps an IPA base would be better suited for wet-hopping in this case.

On tap at Spokeasy Public House

A: Pours deep orange amber with a frothy light tan head that settles to a light layer and laces very nicely.

S: Herbal, a little dank, grassy, some citrus, and a touch of caramel malt sweetness.

T: Citrus, lemon and grapefruit zest, a bit grassy and spicy, some dank herbal notes, and some caramel malt sweetness. A little watery thin on flavor on the back end.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Not bad, but there are certainly better wet hopped beers out there. I think something with a bit more body would have worked better.
