I'm an IPA guy and this one just didn't do it for me. I like most of what I've had by Uinta. This one was not up to what I'm used to from them. Poured with a nice head. Nice deep golden color. Taste was almost like a flat IPA.

From a bottle into a pint tumbler glass.

L: Poured a very weak head. Deep amber and cloudy body.

S: Citrusy, hop stank, mild.

T: Starts with a nice black tea bitterness that rolls into a very uninspired generic malt profile. But fear not, because that's soon hopped into oblivion.

F: Solid balanced feel. Sessionable.

O: I liked this more as a I drank it (after adjusting to the harsh hop profile) but overall it's a meh.

Best before 8/8/15.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is subdued with some malt, earth, dirt, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with subdued earth, citrus zest, and slight metallic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer with subdued characteristics that make this one a bit of a chore to drink.

Serving type: can.

From the 12oz can split two ways – Societe Brewing 2nd Anny glass
Notes taken on 12/23/2014

A: Golden straw with a hint of amber to it and some minimal haziness around the core. A foamy layer of whipped egg whites settles over top. Light dots and slippery curtains of lace hit the glass walls after every sip.

S: Malty aromas straight from the can. Touch of bread and toasted biscuit with an overall caramel like sweetness. Somewhat lacking in aroma hops however I do get nice grassy and floral arrangement to this. Decent but I would say all around the nose is a bit subdued.

T: Caramel malt and biscuit breads combine to make up most of the fore flavors. There is a nice grassy resin note to this one and a very drying level of puckered bitterness. Sprinkle in some lemony pine and floral notes. Not bad on the balance and overall session. Has some burpy malt packed in for sure.

M: Light and spritzy with a moderate to light body. Upper levels of constricting bitterness lend to a very dry crisp finish and some resinous linger.

D: An okay session I would say. Malt is bready and hops are grassy for the most part. Does have some nice bitter punch while keeping the balance in good check. Cool to try out but not in the top echelon of the table brew race.

Retrying this beer fresh in a can. Much better than the version I had before. I bumped up my rating. There's actually some malt in the background to support the hops, so it isn't so chalky like most session IPAs.

Enjoyed from the can in a tulip glass, this solid IPA pours a hazy yellow amber with a thick frothy white head of slllloooowwwllyy dissipating bubbles that leaves very nice soapy lacing. Nose of spicy hops, white pepper, light tropical fruits, light sweet malts, and bittering hops. Flavors of thin sweet malts come through the front with bittering and herbal hops commandeering the flavors tot he back and on the aftertaste. Light citrus notes linger briefly but are overtaken by bittering hops. Smooth light carbonated mouth feel finishes wet and light with lingering bitterness. Good for the style.
