Almost black color with a thick two finger caramel head with great retention and leaving laces.
Aroma with notes of creamy coffee, pine, hay and tangerines.
Flavor with notes of juniper, roasted coffee beans, cola, cream, melon, tangerines, grapes, pine, cocoa, white pepper, gooseberry, lychees and stone fruit. Dry and bitter aftertaste. It feels lower than its 73 IBUs.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.5% is completely absent.
Superbly balanced and citrusy-piney Black IPA. Great complexity.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 4/24/2018. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 2 finer fairly dense and rocky khaki head with awesome retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, citrus peel/rind, light pepper, pine, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toasted bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and floral/grassy/roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate dark/roast/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, citrus peel/rind, light pepper, pine, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toasted bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and floral/grassy/roasted earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/herbal/grassy/spicy hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, citrus peel/rind, light pepper, pine, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toasted bread, light smoke/char, and herbal/floral/grassy/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate dark/roast/bready malt flavors; with an awesome roast/hop bitter/sweet balance; and zero acrid/astringent hop/roast flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from hop/char bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/sticky, and lightly chalky/resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7.5%. Overall this is an awesome black IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate dark/roast/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/charred/drying finish, never overly aggressive. Great mix of juicy and dark/earthy hop complexity; nice balancing dark/roast/bready malt presence, but still feels like an IPA. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Pours a black color. 3/4 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight piney hops, slight roasted malt, slight wood, slight spicy hops, and slight spruce. Fits the style of an American Black Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. There is an elevated hop bitterness. Tastes of sweet malt, alcohol, slight roasted malt, hint of wood, slight spicy hops, slight piney hops, hint of coffee, and a hint of earthiness. Overall, good appearance, aroma, feel, body, and blend.

From the twelve ounce can. Liked to label. Only had one other outta unita so far and was rather underwhelmed so I'm hoping for the best.

Look - Coca cola with hints of garnet. Two finger near mocha head that leaves a fair bit of stick.

Smell - About as pine forward as you would expect. Some definite juniper showings.

Taste - Super juicy hoppyness beyond what I was expecting. Pine as expected with a nice cakey malt background. Juniper comes around though isn't overbearing and refreshes the mouth.

Feel - Between light and medium bodied with a low creamy factor as it sits. Swallows easy and crisp.

Overall - Pretty solid offering by Unita. Don't see many black ipa's much anymore. This one definitely gives me hope for trying more of their beers in the future.

Pours a very dark brown with an impressive and thick head. I wasn't getting a ton on the aroma, but what I do get is hops and more hops. The taste is quite piney, as advertised. The juniper presence that's advertised is very subtle and comes in towards the end. I get a lot more of a dark, roasted malt presence that rounds out the hop forwardness. A well balanced and tasty beer. The alcohol is very well hidden, but I did notice just a little bit of a warming presence as I made my way through the can. Not something that blew me away, but a nice seasonal offering for a winter night.

Also props to Uinta for the artwork, it's one of my favorites!

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pine, some light malts in the background. Taste is piney, juniper, roasted malts are present but subdued. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, although the flavors aren't completely meshing together.

Pours jet black with a slight tan head and quite a bit of lacing. Not a whole lotta nose , faint pine is about it .Taste is roasty malt and pine, definitely a competent black IPA. I kind of like this , will revisit again.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a finger high dark beige head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing clinging to the edges of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of juniper berries are present in the nose along with notes of pine and hints of roasted malts.
T: The taste has strong flavors of roasted and charred malts, juniper berries, and piney hops, all of which linger deep into the finish. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Black IPA has rather assertive flavors. I found that the juniper berries lend some complexities to the smell and taste and work well with the other ingredients.

Poured into a Trillium glass a pretty nice dark brown color, with some pretty nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger light tan head, which leaves some small islands and some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with some juniper, pine, slight citrus, licorice. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, juniper/pine, citrusy, licorice. Medium body, ABV hidden fairly well, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty/interesting brew.
