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%.

Pours a four finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, faint mahogany highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Grapefruit nose, flavor is grapefruit hops, lingering bitter aftertaste, the high ABV is hidden. Bottled Jan 2012, $3.45 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

A very piney smelling beer with a heavy roast background. Extreme bitterness overwhelms a large malt content. Chalky feeling as opposed to being outright heavy. Couldn’t tell you if hemp seed makes any difference in the mix. I’ve never called a beer too extreme, but I see the potential turnoff here for many.

bmerz (687) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Bottled two months old. A standout powerful beer amongst any black IPA I have had to date. Super rich, encompassing, and lasting. The aroma is a strong spicy pine burnt orange aroma. Flavor is spicy and pine upfront, strongly malty and earthy without being very sweet. It is intensely bitter and mouthwatering throughout and finishes a bit salty. Texture is oily and grainy with modest carbonation.

JoeyBeerBelly (34) - New York, USA - FEB 12, 2012
served in a standard pint glass. the beer was black with a off-white head that left a sheet of lacing. the aroma is a mix of citrusy hops and dark roast coffee. the taste is much the same as the aroma with a dry bitter espresso coffee bitterness. medium bodied it goes down smooth and easy. overall it is a fine example of the style.

Ripe northwest forest nose. Ominous dark brown body with ruby highlights and a tall ecru head. Heavy roasted malt rich with molasses and brown sugar. Strong bitterness upfront that has characteristics of thick pine needle and burnt syrup. Sweet with an earthy quality. A bit of anise and leafy spice (contradiction: noted). Maybe a little sasparilla and root melded with dark chocolate. Caramel and citrus residue on an oily finish with a touch of vanilla. Very nice drink.

scarletfire65 (904) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Poured a very dark but translucent brown. Leaves lots of chunky lacing. Huge aroma of grapefruit, pine, licorice, cola, roasted malt. Awesome. Medium bodied. Citrus, mint, sage, licorice, pine. Huge hop profile, big roasted malt, bone dry and bitter finish. Crisp and clean. Outstanding.

nittanytide (225) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Poured very dark brown, with an off-white foamy head. Aroma is licorice and coffee. Taste is licorice and baked cocoa, with a bitter but not unpleasant finish. A good black IPA.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2012
12oz bottle from Armanetti’s. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is really nice with lots of hops and a sturdy malt backing. Plenty of citrusy orange pines with a really nice chocolate and caramel malt backing. Solid roastiness with some hop resins, earth, and a light licorice spice. Flavor is bigger chocolate malts and resiny, juicy citrus pines up front. Lots of sweet orange, some caramel, and plenty of roast in the middle before a light licorice spice comes in. Finishes dry and roasty with a moderate, juicy citrus, resiny pine bitterness and a good amount of malt sweetness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Full body that seems a bit jumbled at times with a creamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, a bigger and bolder, slightly malty sweet Black IPA. Plenty of resiny citruses and roasts making this very flavorful, yet it seemed jumbled at times. Despite that, this was enjoyable and very tasty.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown with mahogany highlights and a tight brown head that sits like a brioche until the bottom of the glass. Very assertive grapefruit and pine hop character, some juicy gooseberry, playing off powerful roast character. This is a densely flavoured, massive black IPA. Outstanding.
