What's on the Website: "Bold and refreshing, this IPA combines an abundance of hops with a smooth malt profile. Embracing our inner foodie, hop Nosh is so big in hop character that it is literally a hoppy smack."

Appearance (5%): Poured a clear orange-amber color into a pint glass. Wonderful carbonation. A few millimeters of white head to start, reducing to a sudsy surface. Not much lacing on the glass. 4/5

Smell (25%): Sweet-malty with grapefruit and piney characteristics. Balanced. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Hop-forward and piney right at the outset, with citrus and malty characteristics. A lingering, yet controlled hoppy-bitterness during the aftertaste. 4/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied with a bunch of carbonation. Smooth malty experience. Slightly dry on the tongue. 4/5

Overall (20%): A good IPA. Uinta pulled off exactly what they wanted: a hop-forward beer with a malty profile. The balanced flavor profile is to be commended. 4/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.063/5
