3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have recently noticed a couple of beers by Uinta at my local grocery store. Picked this up in a 4-pack. $8.99 which is so/so for a price point, but you look at other 4-packs (ie. Green Flash $10.99) its no so bad. Pours a dark amber, almost black color with a creamy, thick tan head. Lot’s of lacing left on the glass. Aroma of hops, roasted malt, doughy yeast and I do detect a little hemp once up to the nose. Taste is rather hoppy and bitter, with a roasted malt backbone. Smooth, creamy mouthful. Medium body, thats easy to drink. On the end, it’s bitter with a alcohol bite. Good beer and my 1st beer from Uinta, that I would buy again. Looking forward to trying others from this brewery.

Delightful! Dark thick pour from 12oz bottle, thin slight foam light in color. Bite of hops in an imperial Stout pour. Only knock is that it’s thin on the palate. Otherwise, excellent.

Not too bad. A little bitter for how dark it is. Looks like Coke and tastes like a mix between an IPA and tar.

Smells like spicy, resiny hops. Its black with little head retention. Tastes like spicy hops, hop resin, a spicy hemp seed note, a little warming from the alcohol but it is pretty well hidden. and OK palate some bubbly from the carbonation. Overall a good black ipa, nice and bitter

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma - Fresh, uncompromising citrus
Appearance - Pours an onyx, with a pillowy off white head
Taste - A delightful overwhelming hop intro, smooth and crisp in middle with a pleasant subtle roast and bitter finish.
Palate - Smooth and fully encompassing mouthfeel
Overall - One of my favorite CDA’s available. Citrusy, drinks like an IIPA (as it should) but with a little more body to back it up,

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour black with purple highlight in the light. Nose of citrus hop. Citrus and fruit hop follow by decent bitterness. To me has the slight burnt roasted aftertaste common to black IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was one of the best black IPA’s I’ve ever tasted. Thick and rich, sparkling palate, woody/piney notes. Strong alcohol is completely covered up by an even stronger taste!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark body with red highlights, when held up to a light. A nice tan head that had some nice retention and adequacy lace. Aroma had a nice roasted malt base upfront and a slight citrus hop note. Initial flavor had a great roasted malt presence, a nice balance between grapefruit hops and some resinous hops. Finish was nice and dry and the mouth-feel was full.

It is a strong beer with clean dark appearance, nice aroma with fruit notes, great medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this beer offers a combination that is easy to enjoy.
