Uinta Brewing Co. "Hop Nosh IPA"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, "BEST BEFORE 09/10/17U" and sampled on 08/07/17"
$2 @ Giant, Havertown, PA

Notes via stream of consciousness: Not my first Hop Nosh, I just never got around to reviewing it. It's a decent all-around IPA, although I tend towards examples with less caramel maltiness but we'll get to that later. Wow, I got a really full bottle. The beer is up above the top of the neck label. I hope that's not an issue, you usually get high-fills when the bottling line shuts down or there's some kind of gas pressure problem. It's got a very nice, two-finger thick head of fluffy off-white foam atop a hazy copper-colored body. The aroma is malty with lots of caramel, some orange, and pine. Hmm, this is not the freshest bottle I've ever had, I usually get brighter citrus but that's OK, I know what it's supposed to be like and I can rate it appropriately. The flavor follows with lots of caramel, soft golden and medium caramel, and spicy, piney, and softly citrusy hops. The bitterness rises above the maltiness midway and ushers it towards a dry finish where the pine and spiciness gently linger along with some subsiding caramelish malt. Ahh, looking back I notice that there are walls of broken lacing left behind - very nice! If it wasn't so hazy it'd score great, and I do give IPAs a lot of leeway because dry-hopping causes haze. Hmmm, looking at it it's really not that hazy so I think it still deserves a 4.25, especially as the surface still has a completely solid, and somewhat thick, creamy covering. What did I miss? Medium-bodied with a median carbonation that's gently crisp and then smooth. Overall, as I think I mentioned, it's a solid caramelish and citrusy IPA that can hardly be argued against. It's well made, and basic; nicely balanced, easy to drink, and satisfying.

A truly decent IPA. It is better than others but there are others that are better. It had a reddish amber color, which I liked. It poured a decent foamy head. It had a very good hops flavor, not overbearing or pungent as some I have tried; however, it is one that does not linger for very long like others do. I would say it is a nice summer beer and would not mind having another.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass, the beer is copper with a light chill haze. It has a thick tan head. BTW, love the can art. Best before 9/17/17 on the bottom of the can.

It has a nice aroma of C hops and caramel malts. To me, it has the classic American IPA smell.

The beer is pleasantly bitter with pine and citrus notes. The beer has a nice malt backbone and the malts add a bit of cracker and grain taste. There is a bit of tropical fruit mid-glass.

The mouth is pleasantly tongue coating.

This one hits all the right notes for me. Glad I got a 6 pack!

It pours a golden yellow and gives the same color body with a one inch white foamy head in my pint glass. The smell is piney hop forward with some nice lingering malts that come through as the beer warms. The taste is basically the same, somewhat bitter yet having a sturdy sweet malt. The mouthfeel is about a medium and smooth, slightly creamy. Overall, this is a good American IPA, get it if you see it.

Excellent beer. Picked it up because I've never had it before. Pours a nice orange haze. Smell of citrus and a tad of piney goodness. Smooth taste and goes down easy. Very drinkable and excellent tasting brew. Very well done. And for 7.3 percent ABV packs a well hidden punch. Well done uinta!
