12 oz. bottle, with best before date of 03/19/2014. Acquired this bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store; I've only had this beer once before, & I figured this would probably be my last opportunity to try the beer known as Uinta Hop Notch IPA, before the name changes.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a nice bright coppery orange colored body with three big fingers of white head. Nice thin rings & streaks of lacing. Some okay clarity, but slightly hazed. Looks very nice.

S - Smell is of big bright grapefruit / earthy / pine / spruce hop resin, lemongrass, a bit of soapiness, musty yeast presence, and lots of caramel / bread malts. Floral & mildly skunky. I feel like there is also some spice character present that I can't identify.

T - Taste is very nicely balanced. Piney / grapefruit hop resins, sweetened earthy tea leaves, lemongrass, and lots of bready malt to round things out.

M - Feel is mostly clean, with some residual hop bitterness and dry breadiness on the palate. Pine / grapefruit on the finish.

Overall, a solid IPA from Uinta, and I look forward to trying it again in the future. Very nicely balanced, and extremely drinkable for the mildly high 7.30% abv. Recommended for sure, as an easy readily available IPA.

Uinta Hop Notch IPA ---4/5.

Best Before: Unreadable (but should be--and seems--fresh)

Pours a very slightly hazy orangeish, with a billowy two fingers of beige head that chunkily settles to patchy islands with lots of lacing. Aroma is of bright citrus with a slightly tropical punch and some sappy biscuit backbone. Flavor is bone dry, thirst-quenching and orange-rindy/piney with some nice caramel malt and biscuit backing it all up. Medium body with tiny, active carbonation and a lacquer-like, desert of a finish. Super-drinkable, very tasty, I would drink this all the time if I had access to it all that time.
