Hop Notch IPA brewed by Uinta Brewing - Salt Lake City, Utah

Hop Notch IPA brewed by Uinta Brewing - Salt Lake City, Utah   

Since 2001, Uinta Brewing has been 100% wind powered. the first Utah company to do so. To continue its commitment to use renewable resources, Uinta Brewing installed solar-electric paneling on the brewery’s roof in 2011. Using wind and sun, Uinta brews Hop Notch IPA to be bold and refreshing by combining an abundance of hops with a smooth malt profile. ABV: 7.3%, IBU 82

Garrett Oliver, author of The Oxford Companion to Beer and brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewing says, "I can smell this beer as soon as it hits the glass. The beer is hazy deep gold and the tan foam is abundant, but it drops back. A distinctive hop aroma leaps from the glass—lemons, oranges, mint, a touch of sagebrush. On the palate, it’s broadly bitter without getting silly about it, and the dry center gains its gravity from fruity aromatics rather than actual sweetness. All told, this is a very robust but drinkable IPA with plenty of personality. I suddenly want a huge plate of very spicy nachos."

Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Presentation: Full disclosure, the Uinta Brewing beers caught my eye in the cooler. They have tremendous aesthetic and shelf appeal. I was drawn to their bottles by creative labels and excellent presentation. I'll admit that's not always the smartest way to choose a beer without knowing anything else about the brewery, but in this case it worked out well.

Appearance: Although I consumed 4 directly from the bottle, Uinta does suggest on their label to pour this into a glass for best taste. I poured one into a pint glass for this review. Pours out golden orange with a 2 finger off white foam, light and airy head.

Smell: Smells citrus/grapefruit coupled with earthy/piney hops. The smell is beautiful and what a quality American IPA should smell like.

Taste: Outstanding. Very hop forward, followed by grapefruit and bitterness, then finishes super clean. Highly drinkable. Aftertaste is slight pink grapefruit on the tongue and inside of cheeks. For a 7.3abv the alcohol is complete unnoticeable. That's a mark of an excellent brew.

MouthFeel: Medium to full bodied with an exceptionally smooth mouthfeel. Again, for a 7.3, this one is highly drinkable.

Overall: This one has my full attention. An interesting brew and simply outstanding American IPA. Highly recommend.

Uinta Brewing Company
Uinta Brewing Company embarked upon its mission of brewing world class, full-flavored, craft-brewed beer in the winter of 1993. From a small, renovated mechanic's garage located in Salt Lake City, Uinta began distributing a tasty variety of beer ranging from 4.0% to over 10% alcohol by volume to local bars, restaurants, and liquor stores. Demand escalated, resulting in the installation of a bottling line in 1996. Then, in 2001, having outgrown its original building, Uinta built and relocated to a 26,000-square-foot facility, pictured above, specifically designed for brewing beer.

Uinta Brewing is named after an east-west mountain range located in northeastern Utah. Many of Uinta's beer names are inspired by Utah's diverse landscapes or have historical significance. Cutthroat Pale Ale, Uinta's flagship beer, is named after Utah's state fish. Subsequent beer names followed suit, such as King's Peak Porter, named after Utah's highest peak, Golden Spike Hefeweizen, named after the spike used to commemorate the completion of the transcontinental railroad in Utah, and Dubhe, named after the Utah Centennial star.

Since 2001 Uinta Brewing has used 100% wind-powered energy, becoming the first Utah business to reach this mark.
