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%.

BucannonXC5 (1105) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 7, 2012 (purchased at World Market in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for $9.99 for a 4-pack on Nov. 7, 2012). Light black (if that is a color) with two fingers of tan head. Great circular tan retention on the side and above average on the top. Smelled toffee, caramel and dark chocolate malts up front, giving way to a hop finish. Couldn’t put my finger on the type of hops, though. Seemed pretty a heavy beer overall. Tasted similar to the smell. Got toffee and coffee malts up front, followed by a hoppy finish. Bitter coffee beans in there, albeit light. Very good overall. Medium-to-full body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Bitter finish. Really good Black IPA. Not too many negatives at all. Glad I have four of these. Uinta is just so good…

Hopmaestro (641) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
Backlog from lost & found notes: Aroma of roasted malts with a tropical cloak of exotic fruits. Taste is fruity and roasted, smooth hay and grass, slight chocolate notes. Leads into a lemon zesty finish with a pleasant bitterness. Very nice presentation of this style, not many out there who can really do it.

kevinsenn (1505) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle from Charles Street Liquors. Rich biscuity roasty chocolate aroma with some licorice hints. Taste of licorice, c-hops, roasty coffee. Big thick body. Nice.

Really good black IPA. Roasty with a potent dose of citrus and pine hops. Wonderful balance.

EtTuCthulhu (1384) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2015
The beer pours black with a medium khaki-colored head, and the aroma blends resinous hops, roasted coffee beans, and pine needles. The taste is mildly bitter which comes from both the malt roast as well as the hops; there is also a slight amount of umami that helps balances the roasted malt flavors with the bitter American hops. The palate fuses a soft carbonation, medium-light body, and an oily texture, which does a good job of hiding this beer’s high ABV.

RichardW (1761) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle at Marlow’s Tavern, I Drive, Orlando. Wow! Huge aroma of ripe rich fruit and piney hops. Thick and black, but still way too drinkable for 9.2%. Woody notes on the tongue, hops by the bucketload, but with rich chocolate flavours picked out easily aswell. $8 a bottle in a smart bar & worth every cent. Loved it!

BeerRenter76 (303) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle poured into glass gives a large coffee with cream colored head. the head is a bit rocky with good retention. Leaves heavy lacing. Beer is almost pure black, with hints of brown and red in the light.Smells of citrusy hops (mostly orange and grapefruit), some more earthy/floral hops, caramel, roasted malts, and chocolate.Taste starts with citrusy and floral hops along with roasty malts, the roasty malts quickly overpower the hops then comes a strong chocolate taste (more than smell) along with a bit of hemp seed in the finish. Has a crisp, but very roasted finish. Has a medium body with a bit of a buttery/creamy feel, low carbonation. Black IPA’s arent my favorite, but this one is a very good beer.

Pours almost black with a cream head. Aromas of malt, chocolate, coffee and pine. Taste is chocolate/caramel malts, dry coffee, spruce and a bitter hoppy alcohol aftertaste. Very good offering.

Bricks (758) - Delaware, USA - JUL 11, 2015
A dark beauty, with a nice foamy head. Aroma is like a hybrid between an IPA and a stout... just a bit harsh. Tastes like a coffee/chocolate stout with some hops added. Awesome.

tfontana (179) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle from Friar Tuck in Crestwood MO. Aroma is piney, resinous hops over rich roasted malts. Appearance is dark brown to black--almost opaque, with 1 finger-width off white head and nice lacing. Taste is medium malty sweetness with moderate bitter interplay. Palate is medium bodied, creamy with lively carbonation and long, more bitter than sweet finish. Overall, nice complexity with more bitter than sweet but decent balance.
