Review: Uinta Brewing's Grapefruit Hop Nosh IPA

Utah's Uinta Brewing's Grapefruit Hop Nosh IPA is described as: "Tangy, juicy and slightly sweet, this IPA features an aromatic burst of fresh squeezed white grapefruit, complementing the bold, hop-forward character of the Hop Nosh line."

I absolutely love the retro-like appearance of the beer label. For some reason I feel like this beer will be a tad reminiscent of Ballast Point's Grapefruit Sculpin IPA, but as someone who doesn't mind grapefruit in IPAs, it should be good. 7.3% ABV

Appearance: Hazy golden/amber ale with a light amount of carbonation in the body and a light cream/beige head on top. Good amount of lacing.

Aroma: Full on grapefruit! Not overly sweet compared to some other grapefruit IPAs I've had in recent memory. A tad peppery, floral and piney hops.

Taste: Grapefruit, tad peppery, good amount of sweetness - a bit of orange peel. Medley of different hop notes - pine, floral notes and a bit of grassiness. That's mostly what I get from this beer, solid as heck.

Overall Thoughts: Insanely solid as heck, if you like grapefruit and hops, you'll absolutely enjoy this one. Radler fans who like a more grapefruit-forward bitterness would likely enjoy this as well
