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%.

Bottled. Cinnamon roll in nose, with sweet syrup and hops of course. The hops are rather earthy than tropical fruity. Taste is good but way too sweet. Bitterness is also a bit low. Tasty beer but lacks in flavor profile. It’s the sweetness I guess.

penstemon (199) - Nevada, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, coffee, dark chocolate, and fruit. Tastes of roasted malt, more grapefruit and pine, hint of licorice. Full and smooth with lingering bitterness. A really nicely done black IPA.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 Pours a dark brown with a 1-finger khaki head that recedes very slowly and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is faint roasted malt that is quickly overpowered by a barrage of hops. Taste is similar: dark chocolate for a split second before a tongue-splitting hop bitterness. This is not a beer for an inexperienced beer drinker, but is guaranteed to put the hair on your chest. Excellent black IPA, and the 9.2% abv packs a punch at the end of the glass.

thomat (2353) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2012
Dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Malty with hoppy notes. Malt, fruit, hops and bitterness. Full body with a balanced bitter after taste.

tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a pretty dark brown with thin lacing. I’m a bit put off by the huge dark fruit aroma of raisins and plums, but the taste more than makes up for it. Alcohol notes aside, the flavor includes the dark fruit but also a nice load of roast malts that last into the finish without being astringent. Hops do a nice job offsetting the huge sweet malt bomb. Completely unbalanced and proud to be so!

olsvammel (3934) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark liquid with notes of red, light brown head. Hoppy and malty sweet smell with some roasted notes in the background. Similar taste, both pine and fruity hops. Very nice beer. They managed the whole hoppy bitter together with roasted bitterness very nicely.

Pyrmir (3970) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Heavy hop nose, flowery with weaker notes of roasted malt. Taste well balanced of dark malts, a litte burnt. Long, pleasant taste.

Dazz3 (1575) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
Bottled. Pours black with a huge brown head. Smells black current, hoppy and abit roasted malt. Tastes creamy bitter hoppy with a similar finish.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2012
From bottle. Pours silky dark brown with tan head. Lacing followed the beer down. Aroma was fruity and roasted malt. Taste is chocolate and roasted malts. Slight bitter on the end. Very good beer!

Vignale (2414) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Flaska från SB. Mörkbrun klibbig vätska med beige skum. Stor söt citrusdoft, mycket grape och smörkola. Stor söt besk grapesmak, bra bett i beskan, smörkola, söt lakrits och smörkola. Välbalanserad, stroa smaker och riktigt god. Ett maffigt öl där humlen verkligen får stort utrymme och den rostade malten skapar runda, söt fylliga smaker i god harmoni.
