Hop Nosh IPA by Uinta Brewing is an American IPA, judged as a 21a American IPA.

The beer pours a pale gold with hints of orange with a frothy/billowy off-white head. Quite hazy overall. The nose is somewhat generic with tropical fruit and citrus, though not terribly distinct. Neutral fermentation profile with a bit of a one-dimensional modern hop blend. Light toasted malt in the background. On tasting, it is intensely bitter and out of balance. Low sweetness and toasted malt. I think I'm also getting some oxidation on the beer, giving a perception of caramel. Hop flavor is very overwhelmed by the bitterness, just giving a hint of citrus and stone fruit. Overall, the carbonation is on the low side and seems to contribute to the perceived bitterness. Medium body with low astringency as well. Overall, the beer is aggressively bitter and somewhat unpleasant. Additionally, it seems lacking in distinct hop character aside from the bitterness.

Brewery Introduction

It would be cliche to say that everyone who works at Uinta cares about one thing: beer. It would also be a lie. We've built a team that shares a need for adventure. Beer unites our eclectic team and while not all of us know exactly how we got here we're sure glad we did.
