Poured a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is amazing. It's a mix of roasted malt, wood, grapefruit, lemon and something I can't place.
The taste starts with smooth roasted malt, a little bitter-sweet, then moderate to heavy pine bitterness to finish. A great profile.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
Outstanding.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours out a coffee brown color topped by three fingers of a relatively pale tan head; a few strands of lace appear as the head descends

Smell: Burnt chocolate, pinesap and hemp

Taste: Big clash of flavors right off the bat, with the burnt and ashy chocolate clashing with the piney hops; the hemp appears at mid-palate, but the yin and yang of this beer fight each other long after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I have had this beer a number of times and I struggle with it each time; while it has its merits, the flavors just don't blend together very well so I find the beer quite unbalanced

It's pronounced "doo-bee". Don't ask me how to pronounce Uinta. Love this beer though. Bought it in a 4 pack for $10 (perfect!), this is a fantastic, boozy black IPA. The hop aroma is overpowered by the alcohol fumes, but you won't mind once it starts to warm your belly! The bitter chocolate of the malt and grapefruit of the hops are the most prominent flavors.
