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%.

DuffMan (6752) - 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.

jeff789 (1407) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Pours a deep deep brownish red with a nice tan head that has nice retention and leaves very nice lacing... Piney aroma lightly roasty, lightly creamy, very aromatic no sweetness... Lively creamy fuller body, lots of flavor, odd cleanse the palate quality at the end, in the way a mint would without that flavor... Finishes clean doesn’t linger, spicy herbal hop up front followed by a bit of creamy roastiness then vanishes...

Tap: Dark brown with a thick tan head and sticky lacing. Sweet hop aroma with hints of junipers and pine needles. BIG hoppy flavor with a thick, big body. Must drink slowly it is so big . . . Yumm

Bottle from Sledutah - Secret Santa 2011. Pours black with light brown head. Aromas of grapfeuit and lemons with some lightly roasted malts. Roasted malt flavor with some chocolate and lots of citrus. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Craig.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 40°. Color is a deep dark glossy brown that has a little ruby showing in the light. Carbonation is mellow with a thin tan head. Aroma is very hoppy with bold citrus and pine scents. It has a medium that gives a smooth mouth feel. Flavor comes out sweet with a nice roasted malt and apple, then the hops kick in with balanced citrus and pine sap that leaves a bold bitterness behind. After taste has a sticky feel as the bitterness and pine linger on. Overall its is a very good brew, big, bold and complex.

A rich, sweet IPA with a dark color and some coffee-like overtones. Round and tasty, sticky sweet but drinkable.

I love Black IPA’s and a good doobie so I had to try it. A decent BIPA that poured jet black and had a nice hoppy scent. Tasted very earthy with lots of malt, hops, and brunt brn sugar.

The aroma in the bottle and on the pour definitely pointed to a barleywine if I didn’t know what I was about to drink. Thick and foamy tan head on top of what looks like a black beer, but under a bright light is a beautiful deep garnet. At first it seems like this is going to be a typical barleywine after all because of the initial sweetness and alcohol bite. However, it quickly shows that it’s not with a strong, smoky, dry charred wood flavor followed by both milk and dark chocolate. Then the deep, earthy, pungent hop flavor comes through and muddles the initial sweetness in a really great way. All of these things combined create a lingering burnt/chocolate finish with a slight soy sauce taste. The tongue is coated in bitter hops and bittersweet chocolate. Imperial black IPA? Yep, that’s exactly what this is and it’s really good.

QuezXLV (398) - Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Malty aroma and a dark body. The taste is hoppy but intense with sweetness. The palate is strangely watery with gentle carbonation.

UDBeernut (1723) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Black hue capped by off white head is inviting. Large hop bitterness from pine and citrus over power the toasty malt, caramel, and chocolate malt. A true sipper. Rated via BeerBuddy
