On tap:
Pours a little dirty amber, and without much head on full pour. Ok lacing and what head was there lasted pretty well.

Nose isn't strong but seems a mix of pine wood and citrus.

Taste has a slightly oxidized note to it, but ignoring that I get pine, a little grapefruit, and then a fair squirt of tangerine. It's not great, but not bad to this point - about mid-taste.

So, there isn't a surprise until the second half of the taste. The lingering piney bitterness mixed with the juice of tangerine to produce a lemon/pine/toothpaste undesirable flavor that eventually ends lemony tart. I could finish if forced, but I'm giving it up only halfway through.

Partially wonder if bad, though GF rated it poorly a year ago, and we aren't too far off most times. Then again, I'm usually around +/-5% to BA avg, so who knows.

Tangerine IPA poured from a can into a Bell's tulip. The pour is murky and burnt orange in color with hardly any bloom at all. Just a half-finger that dissolves rather quickly. I get some marmalade and buiscity notes on the nose and some subdued hop aromas. Doesn't really smell like a good IPA should.

Medium body, nice firm feel, and a badly constructed flavor profile. Starts out with bread, honey, and marmalade, then you get some grapefruit and cedar. It's certainly bitter, but it's astringent and pithy, not fruity and pleasant. It's like I'm getting hop oils, but I'm also getting the stems, twigs, sap, and fertilizer too. The main word that comes to mind is "over-extracted". Finishes on a medicinal note, which always turns me off with an IPA.

In all fairness, this might have been an older can (it was given to me, so I have no idea when it was purchased). Still, I have yet to be impressed enough by a Uinta beer to buy it, take it home, and review it. This one was a freebie (thank goodness). No way would I buy this while there are so many killer IPAs out there within arms reach. I'm still open to trying more of their beers at my weekly tasting. If I ever come across one I really like, I'll be happy to buy it.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/25/2017. Pours crystal clear deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, red grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, toasted bread, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/pine hops, tangerine zest, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, red grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, toasted bread, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, red grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops, tangerine zest, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop/fruit astringency after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7.3%. Overall this is a delicious fruited IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops, tangerine zest, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Don’t really prefer this much over the base beer; but it is a lot more vibrant, tropical, and dank on hop/fruit flavors. Definitely a more modern hop bill. Nice malt backbone, without being sweet or overly aggressive. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a golden color with a nice two finger off white head from an aggressive pour. Leaves some nice sheet lace down my glass.

Aroma is is nice hops floral and fruity with tangerine definitely dominating.

Taste is kind of like the nose good hop notes but not as floral and sweet tangerine, more grassy bitterness with citrus rind bitterness mixed with just hints of the sweet tangerine that was in the nose. Flavor is good a descent IPA to be sure just think it would be little better then good in the taste more matched the nose.

Mouthfeel lighter side of medium carbonation is a little peppy also maybe making it feel lighter then I would of guessed at 7.3%

Overall a good IPA think it would be better then good if the flavors matched the nose more.

I picked up a bottle of Uinta's Hop Nosh Tangerine IPA for $1.69 at The Lager Mill. I've been wanting to try this beer for awhile and now that it's available in Michigan I need to give it a try, so lets see how it goes. 2017 Vintage. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into an IPA glass.

A- The label looks good, it goes well with the name and it's a little eye catching. It poured a darker orange color which took on more a brighter orange color when held to the light and two fingers worth of slightly creamy off white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some nice rights of patchy lacing behind. This is a good looking IPA, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness with a hoppy orange and tangerine aroma being the first to show up with some orange rind aromas also showing up along with floral, light herbal and light green hop aromas coming through in the background with a little more fruity hops. Up next comes some doughy yeast which leads into the malts which impart more of a bready and toasted malt and caramel malt like aromas with a little more sweetness. This beer has a pretty nice aroma, but I wish the the hops showed up just a little more.

T= The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops being the first to show up and it imparts all the hoppy aspects that it did in the aroma with the orange and tangerine aspects still sticking out the most. Up next comes the doughy yeast which leads into the malts which impart all the same aspects that they did in the aroma and this time they show up a little more. On the finish there's a lower amount of medium bitterness with some malty flavors showing up towards the end, this is a nice tasting beer, but I wish it was a little a little less malty.

M- Fairly smooth, a little on the sweet side, not too crisp, slightly sticky, on the thicker side of being medium bodied with a lower amount of medium of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a nice beer and I thought it was a pretty solid example of the style, it had enough tangerine flavors to live up to it's name, but I wish the DIPA base was a little more balanced and cleaner. This beer had ok drinkability, one is good enough for me, anymore than that it might start to wear one me. What i like the most about about this beer is the appearance, it's a good looking beer. What I like the least about this beer is the taste, I just wish it was a little more balanced. I might buy this beer again and I think it's worth a try if your want a more fruity IPA. All in all I liked this beer but I didn't love it and I think with a little more on the taste and it could be a pretty good beer. It's not my favorite beer from this brewery and it's a pretty solid example of the style. Nice job guys, but a little more work could take this one to the next level.

Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over a medium amber body with some lacing. Nose of tangerine perfume. Taste of tropical fruit, dank pine, and other citrus. Good feel and overall, the nose is a bit weird and I lowered the numbers from the numbers of the first half of the glass.

Appearance: a pleasing light orange-amber color with 1-2 fingers of a foamy, off-white colored head that settled to just 1-finger, but remained foamy

Aroma: Prominent, but not overpowering tangerine and orange aromas with a whiff of bready malt

Flavor: Again, the tangerine and orange are the stand outs, but with a moderate malt presence to help coalesce the ingredients into a well-balanced, light-bodied ale. A perceptible bitterness it present, but does not truly show itself until about mid-palate and carries through to the semi-dry finish.

Mouth feel: Light-bodied with medium carbonation, crisp

Overall: The way the tangerine/citrus and malt coalesce is quite refreshing and makes for a rather satisfying brew. I’m not sure if it is the citrus zest or the choice of hops that give it such a distinctive tartness. Perhaps a combination of both? Nevertheless, it works for me! I will certainly put this in the summer rotation. Having it offered in cans is an extra benefit too.

Amber orange color with a thin head with short retention.
Delicious tropical and citrusy aroma with notes of mango, passion fruit, pineapple, tangerines and some caramel and toasted malts.
Flavor with notes of resin, grapefruit, tangerines, a good deal of mango, toasted malts, lots of pine and spices. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Its 82 IBUs do not feel aggressive at all.
Medium towards full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.3% is completely absent.
Tropical American IPA that proved to be quite well balanced, especially considering it has 82 IBUs. Tangerine was not overdone at all. It filled the blanks within its myriad of flavors. I recommend if you are into tropical and bold IPAs.
