This was a nice and dark pour that didnt let any light through. Nice smell of light hemp and wood. Taste was hoppy with a good amount of dry hop flavor. Enjoyable but defiantly a sipper.

Being generally new to IPAs, more specifically BLACK IPAs, I suppose my palate isn’t as refined as others reviewing this. Very good qualities of an Imperial, with the hoppiness of an IPA. Interesting brew and interesting brew from Utah, of all places...

Really, really good dark beer. Not too hoppy, well balanced. Just read the Uinta website which lists the IBU as 109. You would never guess just from the taste- very smooth. Really well done. Wishing I had a six pack instead of a single.

Bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV
Dark color, almost black; medium sized head. Frankly, it’s an Imperial Stout, maybe with just less body, and less sweetness than some others; it has a very good flavor of chocolate and roasted malts, some molasses too, and powerful hopping; apparently a bit resiny as well; the aroma is instead somehow light.
Very good beer.

Picked this up on a whim even though I’m not a fan of black IPA’s. $9 for a four pack and it was bottled 12/22/11 so it was about seven weeks old at the point I drank it. Dark black color which is no surprise, decent head. Smells slightly hoppy, roasted malt, not bad at all. I like it already. Taste is oily citrus, kind of sweet, not bad and exactly what I like from a strong black IPA. Overall, I’ll buy this again once in a while.

Dark mahogany color out of the bottle with a thin beige head. Dark brown sugar, molassass, and hop resin nose. Noticable alcohol on the palate. The hop resin and grapefruit rind hops are very strong, with bitter chocolate, some burnt toast, dark brown sugar and molassess sweetness. Long hop bitterness in the finish. This is a big beer with lots going on.
