One of my oarsmen brought along a six pack of this sweet stuff when I brought my crew together for the maiden voyage of a fine Skuldelev warship that I build myself out of Douglas fir from my own back yard. There were 16 rowers on each side of the ship, each rower brought their own viking shield and they were arrayed along the gunwales. Quite a sight! Anyhow, the one oarsmen brought a sixer of Hop Nosh, and another oarsmen brought two sixers of Lagunitas. That made for 18 beers between the 34 of us (32 rowers plus me as captain and my second mate Alfhild). So, we each got basically half a beer, and my half a beer was the Hop Nosh.
Smell = like the Douglas fir resin scent in my fine viking ship
Look = like a golden pint of sweat from a sweet bosomy viking lass
Feel = so tender on my viking palate
Taste = majestic and Valhallaesque

Tastes cheap to me. Sorry. Some coriander taste. Malty. The after taste is unpleasant to me. It does not taste like an IPA to me. IPA tastes like citrus, piney, resin, rich, bitter, refreshing. This stuff is distinctive that it does not taste good. You could not pay me to drink this again. for $1.00 more I could have a Lagunitas IPA, Stone IPA, Odell, New Belgium.

Pours a copper color out of can. Loaded with hops and has a great piney grapefruit flavor. I like the 7.3 ABV which enables you to have several. This one was a surprise and I would recommend grabbing a rack.

Beautiful clear copper-colored body with a yellow-tinged dense voluminous head, plenty of varieties of lace on the glass. Nose offers orange peel and other tropical fruits alongside bread crust malt. The flavor more heavily favors the hops, adding mango to the mix, while caramel is added to the malt profile. The hops/malt in in great balance, meaning the hops outshine the malt by a fair amount but don't run away completely. The body is medium weight, a little slick even.
This one is an anomaly in my book. It didn't offer a great variety of hop flavors, nor even my preferred malt flavors, but somehow came out to be not only a great beer but one I really deeply enjoyed. Uinta delivers another reaffirming product.
