West Coast-Style IPA by Uinta Brewing was reviewed as (21A) American IPA (India Pale Ale) according to the 2015 BJCP Guidelines. The pour revealed a beautiful fluffy head of beer along with a light yellow or straw hue. Slight chill haze affected the clarity just a tiny bit. The aroma revealed an IPA for sure exploding with hops along with a subtle malt sweetness. The beer is well balanced between malt and hops that had a moderate hop bitterness. The bittering was not over the top, but just right for the style. Some Pale Ales and IPAs can be aggressively hopped too much (in my opinion), but this was not the case. The hops revealed a slight citrus flavor (grapefruit-like) that was subtle and barely noticeable much like a slight ' tang ' or sour taste. As well, the bitterness was well balanced from initial sip to the aftertaste. The mouthfeel of this beer was medium, the carbonation was just perfect and the finish was crisp and dry.

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.
