In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Uinta Brewing. The beer that will be featured is called Oak Jacked Imperial Pumpkin Ale. This is beer is part of their Crooked Line, which there will be three more beer post in the future on their Detour IPA, Bareley Wine Ale, and Imperial Pilsner. If you read my earlier blog on their spring ale, you are up to speed on this brewery. If you have not, please read Uinta Hyve Ale beer post. Let us get into the beer.
This fall seasonal has a deep amber without a head on the beer. The smell is a little vanilla and pumpkin with other spices. The taste is a pumpkin and nutmeg with a cinnamon aftertaste. It is not really drinkable.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Cranked up and primed to celebrate, Jacked reveals in the season. Pop the cork for bursts of pumpkin and spices. Aged in oak barrels, Jacked is wound and ready to play. Pairs well with flavors of the season.

In closing, I have to say as we start to wrap this year’s fall seasonals and get ready for the winter seasonals. There are some last-minute fall beers I wanted to post on and this is one of them. I had this beer last year and loved it. I was pretty excited to see it on the shelf in the Chicago market. This brewery did something different then the same boring pumpkin beers out in the market. They put their pumpkin ale in barrels. This has been a rough fall season for the seasonals and I have been very disappointed. I have to say this is the same gem that I discover last year and I am glad I picked up this bottle this year. I am happy to say the breweries that I had huge wins on their fall seasonals are Milwaukee Brewing, Flying Dog, Ram, and Uinta. Uinta Oak Jacked is only available in a limited time and it is in 750ml bottles. I would run to your near by liquor store and pick up a bottle of this great pumpkin beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
