Appearance - A strong pour gives nearly 3 fingers of rocky golden eggshell foam with a slight lite orange tinge, body is a bright translucent golden yellow amber, very little carb in the body, leaves nice defined foam lacing after each sip.

Smell - Candied orange peel, some tropical especially pineapple, and some nice floral hops.

Taste - Very much like the nose, there is lightly sweetened orange peels, some nice light tropical flavors of mango and pineapple, then floral hops join the citrus and tropical flavors and fill the mouth, as they fall off your left with lightly bittering florals, some light grassy hops and then full on drying citrus pith, but there are still hints of candied orange peel throughout.

Mouthfeel - Medium mouthfeel, carb is lower side of medium and allows the flavors to assert and coat the mouth, carb is silky smooth and slightly slick, having edges only at the very back of the tongue. Still very drinkable, and almost thirst quenching.

Overall - Really a very nicely done ipa, I like the citrus and floral forward flavors here. The floral does not get grainy as it does in some others, and the lightly dry and bittering finish begs the next quaff. If you like citrus, tropical and floral hops, give this one a try.

Purchased: Single from Let's Pour mailorder

A: Big foamy off-white head sits on the clear, honey-colored beer. Excellent retention leaves an attractive remnant of lace behind.

S: Pleasing aromas of floral and citrus hops.

T: Moderately bitter taste, with bready malts merging well with the hops. Very nicely balanced

M: Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel on a medium body. Finishes partly dry with lingering bitterness of tropical fruits such as pineapple and citrus like grapefruit.

O: Balanced, yet still bitter like an IPA should be -- excellent brew here!

My first beer from Uinta and I'm excited about it.

A: A hazy golden orange/tangerine color. Not perfectly clear, but not cloudy either, which is what I like in an IPA. Lots of tiny bubbles streaming up. Good creamy head and awesome lacing on the glass.
S: Smell is pungent at first. Second whiff is of tropical hops; mangos and maybe pears or nectarines. And I get a little piney, earthy smell with a hint of crisp apple.
T: Resinous hop profile. I can taste tropical fruit, pineapple and mango. A little bitter on the back end but not overly lingering. There's something that tastes like spruce and melon in there too, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
MF: To me it actually feels undercarbed. It's smooth and creamy, but not super easy drinking as the alcohol is not very masked. Pretty well balanced beer though.
O: I enjoyed this beer. But the more I drink it the more I get hung up on that spruce and melon taste that I'm trying to identify. Overall though this is a solid IPA.
