In this blog, we are going to take a look at this brewery’s, who is Uinta Brewery, flagship beer called Unita Hop Notch IPA. If you read my earlier blog on this brewery, you are pretty much up to speed on Uinta. Let us get into this beer.
Hop Notch is one of their everyday beers and it is not organic unlike some of their other beers. It has a nice light copper color with a constant white head on it. It has a slight citrus but more earthly smell to this IPA. Hop Notch has a slight sweet citrus but more earthly to piney taste to it with nice hop finish. It is drinkable for being a 7.3% ABV.
Here is a description from their website (www.uintabrewing.com):
Bold and refreshing, this IPA combines an abundance of hops with a smooth malt profile.
A play on “Top Notch” with a hoppy twist..setting new trends for beer vocabulary, “this IPA is Hop Notch.”
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, I really enjoyed this beer. I love how it is drinkable and has a ton of flavor. It might be have a nice hoppy to earthy taste but it has a nice malty backbone to balance everything in the beer. This beer has a different twist on the west coast india pale ale style. It is not a cookie cut west coast india pale ale. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
