Must have gotten a less than perfect beer. It was cloudy upon pouring and didn't ever clear. After reading the other reviews, I'll give it another try.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a tulip glass. One of the prettiest pours I've seen: a thick, long-lasting head of white foam atop a deep, clear, copper-colored body, with lots of sticky lacing Strong malt presence, with quite a bit of sweetness to balance out the hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, with a finish on the dry side and a touch of lasting bitterness and alcohol burn. Overall, a very good beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

L: Pours a clear gold/copper, with a 1-finger head that dissipates quickly, and only minimal lacing.

S: Mix of citrus hops, malt and bread. Not overly strong, but decent.

T/F: Citrus hops upfront, with the malt and bread following. A little bite at the end, but pretty well balanced. The alcohol is pretty well hidden, so it might sneak up on you.

O: Very solid IPA. Not spectacular, but definitely one I will go back to.

DATE: September 10, 2017... OCCASION: week one of football continues...Browns lose another opener.... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... pours a robust, prototypical amber body, with ample effervescence building a single-finger head that thickly coats the glass in white.... the lacing is irregular but tangible... caramel and grapefruit meet at the first whiff... light resin, dank basement, and doughy malts fight for air time... all in all, suggestive of balance... the first sip is medium-bodied, stocky, blunted at the teeth and rounded at the throat... deceptively hides its strength in a crunchy, chewy mouthfeel... the caramel almost usurps the resin, but enough citric fruits--grapefruit, most prominently--with lemon and apple also late... this beer is a sipper disguised as an easy-drinking IPA...

12oz bottled on 7/1/17 consumed 8/23/17

I regret finally rating this beer while drinking an older bottle. I've had fresher than this before - it was a bit brighter and hoppier.
That being said, this beer is still delicious. Has an amazing fluffly off-white head that stands like a rocky landscape and then laces like a dream along the glass.
The flavor is composed of orange pithiness, tiny hints of grapefruit and some lemon. The malts are carmelly, sweet, and biscuity.
Finishes low to medium dry.

This is a great brew, I will make sure to update this review with a fresher bottle and update the hop/malt balance and character.

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.
