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%.

Delightful! Dark thick pour from 12oz bottle, thin slight foam light in color. Bite of hops in an imperial Stout pour. Only knock is that it’s thin on the palate. Otherwise, excellent.

Not too bad. A little bitter for how dark it is. Looks like Coke and tastes like a mix between an IPA and tar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like spicy, resiny hops. Its black with little head retention. Tastes like spicy hops, hop resin, a spicy hemp seed note, a little warming from the alcohol but it is pretty well hidden. and OK palate some bubbly from the carbonation. Overall a good black ipa, nice and bitter

Aroma - Fresh, uncompromising citrus Appearance - Pours an onyx, with a pillowy off white head Taste - A delightful overwhelming hop intro, smooth and crisp in middle with a pleasant subtle roast and bitter finish. Palate - Smooth and fully encompassing mouthfeel Overall - One of my favorite CDA’s available. Citrusy, drinks like an IIPA (as it should) but with a little more body to back it up,

Bottle pour black with purple highlight in the light. Nose of citrus hop. Citrus and fruit hop follow by decent bitterness. To me has the slight burnt roasted aftertaste common to black IPA.

Listigovers (874) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2013
This was one of the best black IPA’s I’ve ever tasted. Thick and rich, sparkling palate, woody/piney notes. Strong alcohol is completely covered up by an even stronger taste!

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - FEB 6, 2013
A dark body with red highlights, when held up to a light. A nice tan head that had some nice retention and adequacy lace. Aroma had a nice roasted malt base upfront and a slight citrus hop note. Initial flavor had a great roasted malt presence, a nice balance between grapefruit hops and some resinous hops. Finish was nice and dry and the mouth-feel was full.

It is a strong beer with clean dark appearance, nice aroma with fruit notes, great medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this beer offers a combination that is easy to enjoy.

I am a big fan of this beer. Incredibly hoppy and nicely bitter. Pours a nice dark brown to black. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
