A collaboration for Uno's from The Weyerbacher Company. Pours a crystal clear golden with a decent white heading. Great lacing until the very end. A heavy floral aroma and a slight soggy bread aroma. Taste is very much the same. A solid light crisp malt backbone and a heavy green linger of bitter hops. Very drinkable and an awesome pairing with any of Uno's foods.

DATE: February 25, 2018... OCCASION: stopping by Weyerbacher to pick up a gift for brother Jer, I figured I'd treat myself as well... GLASSWARE: Victory nonick... pours a murky, reasonably lively yellow-orange body... its head offers smears and wisps of white that sit about a quarter of an inch... nice immediate pine and citrus--mango, grapefruit, and some orange--but just as nicely, this balances with toffee, dank earth, basement funk and bread malts... suggests a Weyerbacher offering that can be sessioned, perhaps! first sip is chewy, bitter but not offish, lingering and fulfilling--all while encouraging the next sip... slightly resinous and oily... fits between the teeth with a medium-bodied draw... first flavors are resin, orange, grapefruit, lemon grass, guava, pineapple, and bitter herbs--all at 6%ABV!... however, Big Ern must be into balance, because as much as resin and citrus take center stage, the malt base of toffee and bread keeps this beer from floating off into abject fruitiness... fresh from a grunt filled today, this could be a go-to from a six, as it has dimension, weight, and character...

Had on tap at Uno's in Doylestown Pa. This beer is brewed exclusively for the chain. Forgive the brief review based on notes on napkin. Vessel was 22oz. pilsner style glass.

A: Hazy light copper color. One inch white head which disappears rather quick. Nice lacing as its enjoyed.

S: Decent nose with good combination of pine and citrus

T: Mostly citrus with a little pine

M: Medium bodied. No notice of the 6.7%abv.

D: This is pretty middle of the road for an IPA but worth trying and i plan on getting next time im in Uno's. It's nice trying a beer that you can't get everywhere and i wish other brewerys would do this type of thing.

Edit: Just realized that the discription of the beer reads it is 5.9%. The menu i read stated it was 6.7%.Possibly because of different batches.

- Brewed by weyerbacher for unos as thier house beer. draft in pint glass at unos mt. laurel nj.

A: Pale orange moderate clarity with a light carbonation detection. The head was slight, foamy,oatmeal in color but retained well enough. Strong sticky concentric circles compose the lace.

S: The nose was sweet and fruity.Light pale grain backing modest in strength.

T: Some fresh pineapple and mangos first appear along with some light citrusy and orange notes. The beer turns progressively bitter with grassy and dry fruit notes.

M: The mouthful was light with a quiet carbonation, a bit laid back and relaxed lacking a crisp bite.

O: Overall this beer starts sweet and fruity and progresses to a more bitter flavor and gets smoother with each sip. A good repeat drinker, balanced nicely enough for repeatability.
