Uinta West Coast Style IPA

Although Uinta distributes to New Jersey, I rarely see their beers on the shelf. Lately, I’ve been frequenting Cranbury Buy Rite since it’s on my way home from work and I haven’t seen an Uinta beer in months. This one was picked up on a beer stop in Pennsylvania.

ABV: 6.3%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our bold and citrusy West Coast-style India Pale Ale—brewed using four different hop varieties—features pronounced aromas of pineapple, mango and pine.”

Random: This is a year-round beer from Uinta that comes in at 69 IBUs.

The beer poured with a two finger, off white head. It took awhile to dissipate and left some lacing on the glass. The body was copper-colored and had a touch of haze to it with little visible carbonation. The nose was all Mosaic hops. I picked up pine first, but it quickly went into tropical fruits with lots of pineapple and mango. The taste was the same as the nose with lots of tropical fruit. The pineapple and mango didn’t taste artificial and were really pungent. There was also a floral characteristic to it. There was some malt at the end to try to balance out the hops. The body was on the medium side and had moderate carbonation. The finish was pretty quick with mango and flowers. I picked this up for $1.83, which broke down to $.15 per ounce. This was a pretty good beer that went down quickly and easily. I would have this one again.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
