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%.

This beer is insane. Very complex and hard to even begin rating. Aroma is malty and thick coffee smell. Pours dark and thick. Taste has a ton going on at once with crazy hops, sweet and bitter, fruity backbone too. Hard to explain but comes together nice. A must try ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle - $2.59 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Bottled 04/16/12.

Appearance: Pours out a matte black body with a lightly foamy, lightly hued beige head.

Smell: A fist-a-cuff tussle of malt notes and hop notes: charred bread crusts, heavy resins, bitter chocolate squares, citric-scented lemon pith, and roasted barley.

Taste: Bitter chocolate coated roast with some slight ashtray qualities. Low sweetness that’s altogether brief. Hard-handed resins, powdered pith, discarded lawn weeds, and coagulated, gloopy pine resins. High bitterness. Roasted, highly bitter finish with the angry-looking bitterness slowly riding out like a senior citizen cruisin’ at twenty under the speed limit in the fast lane.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Though the hemp seed is an appreciated added ingredient, it’s, for me, completely lost amidst the hard roastiness and heavy hoppiness. It’s black, it’s high on the alcohol scale, and it’s bitter -- that’s IN these days, right?

From the bottle poured a brownish brew with a yellowish browh head. Strong falvors and aromas of hops, hops, and more hops with a bit of maltyness thrown in. Heavy bodied with a hoppy finish that really sticks to your tounge.

Bottle. Very dark with thin mocha head and decent lacing. Nice pine aroma plus some grapefruit and something reminiscent of creamsicle and a slight undercurrent of caramel. Slight roasty flavor with a nice bitter and dry hoppiness. Not too heayy, not overly carbonated, nice long hop finish.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours a deep brown almost black with a medium creamy tan head that left great lacing. Aroma of fresh citrusy and floral hops along with caramel and lightly toasted malts. Flavor of toasted and slightly roasted malts, caramel and toffee. Hop flavors of pine and citrus. Got more hops in the aroma then the flavor.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 Smells very piney with a very faint scent of malts. Couldn’t detect the alcohol. The appearance is very dark brown, almost black. I poured a three finger head. It taste very bitter,in a good way, with a earthly/grassy hop flavor dominating in the front followed by a slight taste of malts at the back end. Full body, leaves the palate feeling sticky. Good carbonation. All in all this a good beer. Cheers

rdixon77 (682) - Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Dark pour with a large amount of white foam. Aroma was primarily citrus (unusual for a Black IPA) with some roasted malt. The taste was wonderfully hoppy, but still had a robust and sweet dark character. I am not sure how much the hemp seed factored in, but I liked the overall product. Excellent beer.

32oz growler from Moondog Growlers- Marietta, GA -----> snifter. Pours cola black with orange hues around the perimeters. Impressive 3 finger head that stays for a long time, lacing is off the charts. Aroma is heavy pine and SWEET citrus. The pleasing aroma stays with the beer from start to finish. Mouthfeel is standard IPA (a tad on the thin side). Taste is slight roasted malt (very slight) with excellent fruity, spicey hops that blend without one overpowering the other. Hides the 9.2% very. very well. High quality iIPA and not something I expected from Utah.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2012
Fresh from Chicago trip. Pours black with generous foam,Roasty aroma. The hemp lends it a little "roap" and dryness, otherwise a black ipa all the way, just a higher abv route getting there.
