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. Moderate to heavy malt aromas of toasted almost burnt, molasses, and dark chocolate, resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with hints of pepper, licorice and charcoal. head is large, between frothy and creamy, light tan with fair lacing and god legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a soft carbonation. Mouth-filling and very bold, this is a perfectly made Black IPA and the 9% is very well disguised.

Nice solid malts but there are much more hops. (IBU: 104). Solid brew, good tan head. Exceptional beer

GSH1976 (216) - Delaware, USA - JUL 7, 2012
There is a lot going on with this beer. Pours a dark black with minimal tan head. Aroma is citrus, pine and roasted malt. Body is on the heavy side. Taste is a nice balance between hops and malt with neither overpowering. It is smooth considering the high abv. There are some chocolate/coffee/roasted malt notes. Along with the sweetness there is also a mild bitterness in the finish. This is a nice beer.

nick76 (4300) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2012
The aroma is fit for the style with lots of pine and citrus hops as well as porter like qualities of burnt malt, chocolate, and coffee. The appearance is dark with a large head. The taste is like the aroma and very bitter. The palate is exactly as it should. Overall a good example of the style.

jwr07 (113) - Decatur, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pours opaque sit ruby highlights. Smells pleasantly hoppy, with an austere pale malt touch. Nice medium body, quite hoppy, satisfactory malt backbone. I can’t really taste the hemp seeds, but I can’t taste the 9.2% abv at all either so call it a fair trade. Impressive effort.

wlajwl (4268) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Aroma is citrus/piney hops and a hint of malts. The flavor is malts, grapefruit and a mildly nutty/sweet finish.

Barreras (1141) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Pours a cola brown almost black with aroma of sweet malt, and mild citrus. Taste is of chocolate mixed with black licoric. A malty character throughout, the palate is a little hoppy with a minimum of sweetness after the taste. The alcohol content is evident all the way thru the beer.

BelgianBeerGal (3290) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Traded bottle. This pours like a porter with a large milk-chocolate head and nice lacing. Big aroma of sweet hops and a little simple syrup. Wow, strong bite and bitterness but not overpowering; well balanced. Really no clue on the 9+ ABV other than a little tongue tingle...or was it the hemp seed? Very nice.

bong. clear brown with a medium sized head with great retention and lacing. nose of a typical black ipa. flavors are very hoppy with punchy citrus, and a smorgasboard of chocolates. smooth considering the abv. has a nutty character from the weed seed. uinta’s been brewing some heady brews lately.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2012
*puff puff* Pours lighter black with a finger of tanish head and good retention. Smell is roast and juicy hops, more of the former. More hops come out in the taste, toward the end of the pallet, but up front is roast. Some alcohol present. Heavier bodied and a piney finish. Long after taste, leaves the mouth feel a big slick. Run of the mill black ipa, the imperial might hurt it a bit.
