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%.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with reddish edges, a large light tan head that leaves some thick lacing. The aroma has pine, earth, roast, coffee and mint. Flavor is lots of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, and piney hops. Medium full mouthfeel and it finishes on the sweet side with some light bitterness. This one crosses over to big, hoppy porter territory. Very flavorful and easy to drink.

constructicon (1) - West Deptford, USA - MAR 5, 2012 does not count
Pours black like a porter with a robust head that quickly fads. Nice lacing in my tulip. The nose has a great aroma of hoppiness and roastiness. Tastes precisely like a well done IPA, only with a noticeable roastiness to it. A little alcohol in the finish, as well as hemp. Appropriate, as it is brewed with hemp seed. A little bitter in the finish as well. Well bodied, and very drinkable. A very well done beer from a brewery I don’t see much out here on the east coast. Wish I had the time to visit them in SLC.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2012
A great expression of black IPA. Chocolate brown appearance with an off white head. Piney/resiny nose. The palate is complex with a roasted nutty flavor on entry slowly transitioning to a classic hoppy bitter finish.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Dense dark appearance, creamy head formation. Sugarry cocoa and piney hop aroma. Lots of chocolate on the palate, rich with a hint of licorice. Hoppiness is big, citrus and grapefruit in the finish. Definitely packs a fair punch but teh malt goes a long way to masking the 109 IBU’s

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 Dark black. Nice piney hop taste that but has some great roasted malts deep in there as well. Just about the perfect balance between the two. Smooth bitter hop aftertaste. Overall, this is really good stuff. I’m glad I picked some up.

12 oz. bottle. Bottled 1/12/12. Pours a thick, long duration, mocha head, with slight lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 28) body....nose is heavy resin, pine, citrus, lighter toffee/caramel....taste is sweet malts (toffee/caramel, molasses), with pine, grapefruit peel, hints of chocolate, very light licorice, finishing with a clean hop bitterness...mouth feel medium, alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This is well balanced, nicely complex in both aromas and flavors, thoroughly enjoyable, and utterly typical of the style. This beer has character. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Black, tan head. Aroma of pine, roast malt, caramel. Taste has a nice citrus flavor and not too much roast. Medium body and carbonation. Good beer, but I’ve had way better BIPA’s.
