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%.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, creamy beige head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, earthy hops, oak, figs, and black pepper. Flavor is heavy hops, average malt, and faint fruit esters; dry, hoppy finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Bottle. Pours almost black medium tan head. Toasty, roasty, aroma, floral and pine. Taste is bitter and roasty flavor. Full body, creamy texture, aggressive bitter finish mixed with roasted malt. Very good black IPA, unique because of the very high ABV.

Pours a very deep brown color with a creamy, light tan head that really lasts. Aroma has a very deep fresh hop nose to it with strong grapefruit, solid pine, light peppery spiciness, strong toasted malt presence with some light burnt notes late. Flavor has a strong hoppiness to it but it’s very well balanced as no one flavor dominates the beer. Early flavor profile contains a strong hop bitterness composed of a pine and grapefruit kick but this quickly is brought down by a smooth toasted malt presence. I pick up some light peppery spiciness in the flavor, light burnt acidity and a fair amount of alcohol at the end. The alcohol finish, in my opinion, seems to accentuate the malt character, really makes it pop. Palate is fantastic, smooth with some creaminess and the low, fine alcohol really deliver the hop aroma slowly. Overall a great beer.

Nice dark pour with thin head. Quite hoppy with some roasted malts and cocoa. Definitely would have another...

Just awesome! The nose! So interesting - like sniffing two wildly different beers - a stout and ipa wrapped in one. So, if you’re short on time, and can’t decide between a stout and an ipa - grab one of these. And with the high ABV, you’ll feel like you got a two for one deal too. (note that other beers will seem pathetically unfulfilling after one of these) I’ll let the other raters contemplate the subtle nuances of the aroma/flavor/palate, etc. Bottom line is this beer is rad!

PapaSkeetSkeet (799) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Opaque dark brown, deep, thin tan head. fuzzy foamy, billowing at first. coffee and licorice in the aroma. some sap. Medium-thick and frothy. Mouth-coating bitterness, sap, resin, some pine. light, earthy burnt. light malty sweetness. Has the full flavor and body of a porter, plus rediculous hopping quantities. (as opposed to sacrificing some of the porter qualities to give the BIPA its hop-sided balance).

Scipio (651) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Pours almost completely black with a light colored head. Aroma is hops, citrus, pine and chocolate. Taste is filled with hops and is quite sweet. It tastes like a full bodied IPA, but does not have that feeling. This is an impressive IPA. I will need to experience more from what this brewery has to offer.

thelittlewoody (1) - - MAR 12, 2012 does not count
C= Deep Black with a espresso-crema colored head; A=slight soured notes of caramel on the nose; P= Dark chocolate notes align with a corner of the mouth bitterness. Excellent representation of style and very potent at 9.2% ABV.

Im surprised to see this rated so well. Very soapy hops in the aroma and flavor. Lingering bitterness. Some spice flavors hoing on too. Mehhh

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Pours a deep mahogany, clear around the edges, with a light brown head. The aroma is strong with citrusy hops over lightly roasted dark malt with a dash of chocolate. Fortunately, the roastiness is subdued in the flavor, because I’m one of those who feel that it doesn’t belong in a Black IPA. The malts, playing a supportive roll are dark and chewy with just a hint of chocolate remaining. The taste from beginning to end is about the hops, citrusy with some tropical fruitiness and a strong hit of zest. The bitterness could be stronger, but it and the alcohol’s peppery feeling leave a satisfying dry bitterness in the mouth. Quite nice.
