COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Hemp seed.

Introducing the newest addition to Uinta Brewing Company’s lineup, Dubhe (pronounced Doo-bee), an Imperial Black IPA.

Dubhe was named after Utah’s Centennial Star, a star classified as a Red Giant. Dubhe, the star, appears orange in color, and is found at the top end of the big dipper’s spoon. The name “Dubhe” continues Uinta’s tradition of celebrating the great state of Utah, however, “Dubhe” is a fitting name for more than that reason: this beer is as black as the night sky and is brewed with an astronomical amount of hops.

Dubhe is comprised of five hop varieties, a hop profile bold enough to shine through the roasted, dark malt character of this beer. A citrusy hop aroma, achieved by dry hopping with a proprietary blend of extreme Northwest hops, balanced with notes of mild dark chocolate and a hint of sweet licorice. Smooth from start to finish, Dubhe’s layered flavor profile emerges with rich and rounded toasted malt flavors, and is followed by a lively hop bitterness. At over 5 pounds of hops per barrel, Dubhe is the most hop-laden beer Uinta has ever produced. This shinning new addition is brewed with hemp seed (A play on the name, perhaps?), and has a far-out ABV of 9.2%.

Bottle pours dark ruby brown with a thick foamy head and nice lacing. Aromas of citrus, raisins, chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is creamy bitter chocolate. Tasty!

Bottle. Dark cola pour with a big offwhite head. Caramel, herb, citrus, roast, coffee, spice, grapefruit. Medium body but lighter than expected given the alcohol % and aroma. Nice balance of carbonation, sweetness and bitterness.

kdm1984 (813) - Missouri, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Sampled at the 2015 Joplin Pints ’n Paws Mac-Fest beerfest. Somewhat catty in aroma, but I must admit, they did well balancing the bitterness here with a good, smooth flavor balance and palate. Surprisingly not heavy-bodied, either. Really masks the elevated alcohol. Quite a feat what they did here. One of the better black IPAs you can try, and I’m not a fan of the style. Deserves its high rep.

On draft. Pours medium brown and translucent with a fine but large tan head. Nose is pungent, delicious west coast bitter hops with just a hint of roastiness. Flavor plays nice at first but the bitterness comes out to fight in a hurry. Excellent for for hop nuts only.

Svesse (6926) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2015
(Bottle) Dark brown colour, almost black, with frothy, beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, anise, black rye bread and herbal hops (or was that the hemp?). Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, dark chocolate, black rye bread, grapefruit, liquorice, a touch of mint, hints of hemp and a generous herbal/piney bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with just a touch of sweetness. Well made and tasty black IPA, with an interesting herbal twist. Very nice.

commonmac (676) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Tap at Happy Gnome. Snifter glass. Dark brown to black with tan head. Aroma is earthy with a hop undertone. Citrus in small fashion. Taste is bitter with a hop resin and oily mouthfeel. A little bit of roasted quality towards the end. Aftertaste lingers more than it should. I’m not really uinta it. Not really my favorite.

Translucent watery black with a lacing, eggshell head. Nose is floral, citrus, a little zesty hops, a little cracker, cocoa powder. Flavor is cocoa powder, malty, light toast, orange, a little citrus zest. Full bodied dry finish

M82 (401) - Kansas, USA - MAY 2, 2015
A black body displays a thin, vibrant amber to mahogany highlight at the edges beneath a resilient, creamy-smooth, frothy capped head creating rhythmic, interwoven lacing all around

Juicy, zesty citrus with piney-floral-savory nuances blending into smooth coffee notes with an accent of fudge, all on a signature, dangerously drinkable, silky-creamy-smooth Uinta medium body offering moments of blackberry, strawberry, and melon as the complexities play off each other, a glow of bitterness resonates through the finish and residual, blanketing the dark chocolate and caramel layers with orange juice regaining the spotlight as the bitterness fades out, another very solid offering from Uinta

12 oz bottle best before 07/19/15S, served at 45º into Orrefors Pulse Beer glass
