A good though not exceptional IPA, on tap at Capone's Restaurant. Big IBU, fruity and orange taste. Spider lace. Decent drinkability, however some bleach in the finish. Decent drinkability despite imperfections because of the hop complexity. Middling for all the great IPAs out there.

one of the better india pales ive had in awhile. pours a reddish amber orangey color with a tall whte thick frothy head. smells resiny hops and red malts. flavor is very very citrusy. grapefruit, lemon peel, and piney hops. this is so complex and balanced. very refreshing for spring/early summer wearther, and a nice sturdy abv rounds out a very complete beer, and certainly the best ive had from uinta. feel is nice, medium to fuller bodied but very drinkable. i will be buying this one again

Bottled on 1/11/12.

Pours a clear amber with a 1 inch beige head that settles to a thin film on top of the beer. Thin wispy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grapefruit, citrus zest, and some earthy herbal hops. A bit of an alcohol kick in the nose as well. Taste is of citrus zest, bitter grapefruit, herbal hops, with a subtle malt backbone. There is an assertive hop bitterness that sits on top of the tongue after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good IPA but the bitterness is pretty harsh on this one in my opinion.

This beer poured out as a copper color with a nice looking white creamy head on top. The smell of the beer was hoppy, it had plenty of floral citrus notes on the nose. The taste of the beer was full of bitter flavors from the hops used in this brew. The aftertaste had a light caramel flavor to it. The mouthfeel was clean and sharp feeling. Overall this beer was a good ipa, I would probably drink this one again I I came across it.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation along with some small particles visible floating in suspension. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down but consistently covered the surface and left thick lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of citrusy hops in the nose—grapefruit and orange seem to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy hops along with a moderate amount of bitterness. There are some hints of caramel from the underlying malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied, smooth and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very well balanced IPA that is easy to drink and delivers a good amount of hop aromas and flavors without being overpowering. This isn’t nearly as bitter compared to other IPAs that have a similar hop profile.

12oz bottle, from a random grocery store in Glendale, Colorado.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with a fistful of puffy, loosely foamy, and mostly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some spidery cobwebbed lace around the glass as it quickly bleeds away.

It smells of musty, somewhat dank pine needles, watery orange juice, grainy, crackery pale and caramel malt, and further leafy, floral hops. The taste is bitter pine resin, orange cream, white grapefruit rind, gritty caramel malt, a touch of earthy yeast, and leafy, weedy, and moderately perfumed hops.

The carbonation is average in its bearing, not really in a palate-tickling mood, the body on the light side of medium weight, and actually more or less smooth, the hops really starting to act tardy. It finishes off-dry, the caramel sweetness exhibiting a decent final flourish in the face of an arisen hop bitterness.

A pleasantly hoppy, and duly balanced IPA, the flavours all meshing nicely. Any extra alcohol is well integrated, making this a warming and enjoyable tipple - Utah be representin'!

With a strong "west coat" attitude, the usually conservative Utah based brewery does the unusual- kicking off with a strong IPA with the hop-forward balance that's highly worthy of the style but also capturing a rustic and simple taste.

As the ale pours, there's really no surprises: its camel-hued body is amber and mildly hazy. As a foamy cap frames the beer, its lace circles the glass with concentric patterns. Its a frothy ale that simply sells its IPA character well.

Bold citrus aromas are of grapefruit, fresh orange zest and fresh-cut grass. As the malt influence grows it allows a thin honey, lightly toasted grain and caramel character to prop up the hops- but the focus squarely relies on the beer's high hop character.

Its taste starts out with graham cracker, light caramel and medium honey sweetness. But that sweet taste proves short-lived as the citrusy middle palate unleashes pink grapefruit, ripe orange and a hint of lemon and leaf. As the ale develops into a dry malt taste, its finish is bitter with citrus pith, pine resin and a sharp grassy note.

Medium-light in body, the ale kicks off with a more moderate sense as the malt sweetness seems to balance. But as the hops take command, the sweetness quickly fades and the hops dry the beer with its acute acidic sense and with its piney and grassy bitterness. Its mild warmth plays delicately on the palate and facilitates its supreme drinkability.

I love how this ale is dry, clean and crisp. But its leafy and grassy taste is a bit too prevalent to celebrate its only moderate citrusy smooth tones. Its an all-day, every-day beer that will find comfort in my glass at any time.

Bottled 8/27/2012
Poured into a tulip glass. Appears a bright and saturated deep orange color. Plenty of foamy head that left a drippy collar of lacing all around the glass. A cluster of bubbles clung to one side for the duration of the glass.

Soft floral aroma, light fruity canteloupe.

Lightly spicy bitterness, herbal and dry in the finish. Fairly malty, medium bodied with a bready heft to it. Pine and resiny herbals dominate the flavor. Sweet caramel malt, light bitterness in the finish. A serviceable IPA but not all that memorable.

2017: Too much goddamn caramel malt. Why does everything have to be sickly sweet? Blech.

Got in a trade with swingracex. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 6/6/2013. Pours lightly hazy bright orange color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, orange rind, tangerine, pine resin, floral, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, tangerine, orange rind, pine resin, floral, light caramel, bread, grass, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus rind, pine resin, floral, light caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice flavor balance of pine/citrus hops with a light-moderate malt balance; and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy, very sticky, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. Good complexity of hop flavors with a solid malt balance; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
