Poured from bottle into tulip.
Nice golden color with good lacing.
Great hop aroma. Maybe a bit of citrus.
Taste is deep in fresh hops. Mild hop bite but great hop characteristic...bitter and flavorful. There is a very big citrus aftertaste but it works well with this brew. Its a well balanced and refreshing ipa. Really good. I would not hesitte to buy this again.

Has a nice bitter scent to it. Clear, basically, copper color to it. Limited head and little lace. Looks almost like scotch in a glass...with a head.

Very nice, crisp, vegetable taste to it. There's an aftertaste that is citrsy. Sweetish. This is nice and refreshing. A mild floralness to it.

Deep gold/pale amber color, slightly cloudy. Pours a rocking white head, creamy and with good retention.

Clean subdued hop aroma initially, very west coast with some pine. Hints of malty caramel sweetness, but secondary.

Hops from the start, with the malt struggling to be tasted. Nice meld of hop flavors, with complexity and no single flavor dominating. Transition to finish is surprisingly subdued, as bitterness is present but not IPA bold. Finish is quite dry, though, and demands another sip.

MF - Medium body and carbonation, no astringency, very minimal alcohol warming.

Overall - Initially the flavor disappointed me, but I came to appreciate its unified flavor profile. Nice hop character without being overpowering, but in terms of bitterness is more "east coast" than "west coast". In the spirit of Heavy Seas Loose Cannon or Bell's Two Hearted Ale - hoppy but not a tongue coating IBU bomb.

I really enjoyed Uinta's Hop Notch IPA. It had a nice citrus and pine scent up front with floral notes. I thought it was reminiscent of one of my all-time favorites Maiden the Shade. At 7.3% ABV I was surprised by the smooth drinkability and that it didn't smack you in the face with alcohol. All in all a really balanced drinkable IPA that is smooth enough for the folks out there that aren't complete hop heads.

Pretty pumped to review this one... just started carrying this here in NC I'm pretty sure.

cool looking 12oz. "compass" bottle poured into snifter, while watching WVU smoke Clemson in the orange bowl.

Nice white 1-finger head... tiny white bubbles... pretty, clear copper color

crisp piney, floral smell. very slight rusty/metallic smell too

sweet and bitter tasting IPA here. really bitter, especially at the back of the tongue.

Mouthfeel is light/medium body... good carbonation.

Overall a nice American IPA, one I'd definitely buy again. Pretty sure this is the first beer from Utah I've ever had... looking forward to trying other styles from Uinta.

Sort of thinnish head, around a finger’s worth of just off-white foam, moderately tight weave helps retention until there’s just a few islands left, the lacing is wispy but sticks alright. Exquisitely clear copper orange colored liquid, glistens in the glass, virtually no bubbles visible though. Playfully scented nose of hothouse flowers, pine sap, pink grapefruit to tangerine citrus and an erect spine of herbal hops and pepper, the apricot, peach, pineapple fruit more muted, in the end more sweet than bitter but not lacking in the latter, quietly worms its way into your nostrils like it owns the deed. Medium-bodied, places the bitterness and leafy hoppiness upfront for an initial puckering effect, then allows the general creamy mouth texture to take over, orange pekoe tea, licorice, pine, sourdough bread segue to fuller pineapple, mango, peach, apricot fruit. Pink and white grapefruit, tangerine, mandarin orange, citrus soup in your mouth. Carbonation has a keen prickle to it but neither broad nor especially long lived. Very clean finish, refreshing and tingly. Could drink a lot of these ice cold.

Pours a pleasant orange/gold color. Slight white head and very clean look. Carbonation evident and looks good for the style.

Smell is bits of citrus and bitter hops. Pleasant enough smell but it comes across as a little muted to me for the style.

Taste is a bit like the smell but stronger. Citrus and tropical fruits upfront followed by some sweetness and then a relatively strong hop bitterness in the end. A great hop-forward taste.

Mouthfeel is about the right combination of smooth/crisp for an IPA. Not perfect carbonation but not much to complain about.

Overall this is a great, drinkable, hoppy IPA. Among easily obtained IPAs, i'd put this one below only 2hearted. Good price point as well....seek this one out.

bottled on 12/13/11 so 15 days fresh! poured into a tulip.

appearance - pours a beautiful transparent orange with a nice white head, amazing retention, lacing streaks the glass

smell - grapefruit and citrus hop profile

taste - grapefruit and pine hops up front followed by a nice hop bitterness, malt plays a low background, very much a west coast style ipa

mouthfeel - medium body, high carbonation, frothy and smooth, slightly oily, dry finish

overall - great hop profile, the hops shine in this one as they should, excellent ipa

Uinta Hop Knotch IPA: This Uinta offering is a hazy caramel in color with well developed head that makes it to the finish line. Good aroma of fruity hops. The flavor has the flowery hops shining through the malt sweetness, but the finish is a bit rough. This is a good middle of the road IPA.
