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%.

Brandman (2836) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2013
Clear black body, light brown head. Aroma has nice roasted grains, dark fruits and intensive resiny hops. Very nice and balanced black IPA aroma. Flavour is bit ashy and acidic, some paper between the hops and malty taste. Some berries. Bit drop from the excellent aroma, but really good beer though.

hfmejias (1270) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2013
12 Oz. Bottle. Poured dark (cola like) with a tan head that didn’t stay too long. Aroma is of hops, pine and citrus. roasted malts flavors balanced with sweet notes of coffee and chocolate also very hoppy and with deliciously bitter and dry finish. The ABV while high is not that noticeable. Pretty nice beer very enjoyable.

12 oz. bottle from Jungle Jim’s. Pours a dark cola brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is grapefruit citrus and resiny hops, roasted malts, dark chocolate with perhaps a hint of anise. The flavor is a nice combination of herbal and citrus hops, roasted malts, dark chocolate,some resiny notes and a touch of black coffee. This is a nice black IPA. The alcohol is only noticeable as a warming sensation.

uncben87 (68) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2013
From bottle to tulip. Pours a pitch black with a quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is of roasted malt with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is a nice balance between the roasted caramel and chocolate malts with a good hop bitterness. Average MF that is surprisingly easy to drink and finishes clean. Overall this is a very nice representation of a black IPA.

Leighton (18529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London - many thanks to Seth! Pours clear, red-brown with a big, tan cream head. Dark malts and rich pine in the aroma. Medium to big sweet flavor with juicy pine, good roast, dark sugars. Medium to full bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Lightly warming finish, pretty resinous, with good sticky pine, strong roasted malt character, earth, some cocoa. Pretty nice overall.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2013
12oz bottle. Ruby red-black, with a foamy beige head. Big, sweet aroma...nails it. Pretty much captures what Black IPA is all about..sticky rich resinous specialty malt, and a nice citrus hop backbone to balance it out a bit. The hemp does add some depth and dimension too, A really solid example of the style, and while intensely rich, incorporates the alcohol well.
