Happy IPA Day!
In honor of this fine day, I present you with tasting notes for a lovely Imperial Black IPA that we drank recently. Tonight we will be sampling a nice IPA (not sure what; the hubby is on the hunt for something), and I'll share those notes in the next few days. For now... Cheers!
Uinta Brewing Company Dubhe Imperial Black IPA
This 9.2% ABV brew pours a deep dark black with a pillowy caramel colored head. No light shines through this bad boy. The scent of dark roasty malts mix with prickly piney hops, with a touch of deep dark chocolate and a smidge of alcohol essence hiding at the tips. The intense sticky, resiny pine hop flavor coats your tongue, and the roasted bitter chocolate malt flavors mix with a slight alcohol warmth to balance the hoppiness. A very, VERY good Black IPA. Highly recommended.
