Not a fruity beer fan but this one; not bad. Definately a good look with a small head, ample lacing and hazy light or age color. Nose is.... Yep grapefruit and other citrus. Taste is grapefruit mixed with hops. Refreshing. Body is medium to light. Just not a fan of added fruit to beer.

A juicy, grapefruit infused IPA...it even says fruit ale on the can and sort of leans that way...a little too much grapefruit for my palate, but it is a drinkable IPA...

This beer pours a bright orange with an average head. The aroma features strong grapefruit zest, grapefruit juice, a hint of caramel, and orange zest. The flavor starts with sweet caramel malt, then very bitter pine, grapefruit pith, and a huge bitter grip. The mouthfeel is fairly light and dry with average fizzy carbonation. Overall this is a cool beer - astounding aroma, but less follow through on flavor. The bitterness is excellent and bracing, making for a great overall product.

Grapefruit Hop Nosh IPA | Uinta Brewing Company. Poured from the can into a pint glass, the head's three fingers thick and off-white, with webbed lacing, and a deep golden amber body.

I can pick up that the hops to juice ratio will be spot on.

Tastes like light cracker malts, along with the West Coast style of hops and grapefruit juice doing a tremendous job complimenting each other.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll give Grapefruit Hop Nosh IPA | Uinta Brewing Company a 4.5 rating.

Best before 1/23/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours golden with a mild haze but still has nice clarity to it; fluffy white head that falls leaving nice retention and nice sticky lacing. The aromas are full of grapefruit, orange and citrus. Hints of bread and crackers. Malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose. Grapefruit leads the way along with some orange. Hints of pine and fresh grass. Solid bitterness. Moderate sweetness. Malts do their thing without overwhelming everything. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's slick, fluffy and smooth.

This is a solid "fruit IPA". It's one of the better ones, in my opinion. The grapefruit shines. Whether the grapefruit is natural or artificial can be up for debate, but it still drinks like a beer. Enjoyable stuff.

If scurvy hasn't met its match by now, it's in serious jeopardy as the steadfast IPA of Uinta, Hop Nosh, gets a citrusy overhaul that's equipped with the juice, peel, pith and ribs of the red grapefruit for an undeniable boost of vitamin c.

Grapefruit Hop Nosh pours, bright golden and with a clear shade of orange and a light translucent haze. Its frothy lather carries a healthy heaping of citrus perfume. While grapefruit is certainly the forerunner, an undertow of radiant orange, lighter lemon and mango soon follows. A medium caramel sweetness glosses the tongue and gives the fruity hop impressions a sense of branch ripeness, juiciness and a nearly teeth-churning tanginess.

A backbone of biscuit, bread crust and graham crackers retreat and allow the hops and grapefruit additions to carry the bulk of the load across the middle palate. Radiant with tangerine, lemon and passionfruit, the flavors grow into a taste of bitter sherbet or cream sickle but with an earthy, grassy hop bite. Sharply bitter with the aggression of hops, the bitterness is given greater heft with the help of those gullet gripping grapefruit peels, piths and ribs.

Medium-bodied and retaining light sweetness, the ale's hops and citrus oils effectively strip the palate and usher in a high sense of refreshment and drinkability albeit that aggressive bitterness has moved on from the smoother and more rounded bitterness of hops alone. Grassy with verbena, leaf and herbal notes, the aftertaste is of fresh green hops and freshly squeezed fruit juices.
