look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance (4.25/5): Amazing black/very dark brown with an extremely long-last 2.5-3 finger tan head. Wow. Impressive!

Smell (4.5/5): Excellent nose of grapefruit, pine, and dark chocolate and coffee undertones. I like that this is clearly VERY hop-forward and does not seem to be leaning to the roast side of the Black IPA spectrum.

Taste (4.75/5): Massive, massive, MASSIVE grapefruit notes from start to finish. The bitterness makes itself known as soon as you take your first sip, and it is QUITE sharp; it ebbs in the middle, and the beer opens up to more unsweetened dark chocolate, coffee, and a touch of roast; in the end we’re back where we started–massive grapefruit bitterness. Not balanced at all, but that's not a problem in my mind.

Mouthfeel (4.75/5): The mouthfeel is quite extraordinary–the hemp seed lends a nice oiliness to the beer that beefs up the body and makes this silky smooth to drink. What a great ingredient addition, and a very unexpected one at that. Spot-on medium carbonation. The beer is rich and quenching at the same time, though it’s a very big beer, so the drinkability isn’t so high.

Overall (4.50/5): This is easily one of the best Black IPAs on the market and the best one that I have had, beating the exceptional Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous out with the extraordinary mouthfeel. Way to go, Uinta. You have my attention.
