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, thanks argo0. Pours black, ruby edges, tan head, very nice retention and lacing. Aroma is a little hard to pinpoint. Some roasted malt, some hops. Flavor is incredible, very roasty, chocolate, caramel, nice bitter malts, and nice bitter aftertaste, with dry grassy hop aftertaste added in. With all of the dark malt it’s hard to detect the hops, but they are with you well after you finish the beer. Excellent. Faint feeling of alcohol in aftertaste, but it isn’t overpowering.

12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Whole Foods in Coral Springs, Florida. Best before 1 7 15. The pour is cola brown golden with a tan head. The aroma is roast, pine hop, resin and a soft vanilla. The taste is the roast malt up front, pine hop close behind, a touch of cocoa and a bit of soy. The palate is medium bodied, slick mouth feel and some heat in back. Solid.

Pours a nearly opaque dark reddish brown with a sizable light tan head. Aroma is a handful of hop cones. Taste is sweet roasted malt, molasses, burnt licorice and bitter dark roasted coffee beans. ABV goes unnoticed. Not the hop head I once was, but this is pretty easy drinking for 109 IBU.

Nice IPA with dark roasted malts. Good head retention and definitely a beer to be consumed after the chill of the refrigerator has worn off. Hops in this one muted in the background so the dark chocolate dominates but here are traces of the hop flavors showing here and there.

Surprisingly good beer. Dark hue. Lacy head. Hoppy and malty. The flavor seems roasted and a bit dank. But it is full-bodied so it supports the maltiness. I think if the abv was lower this beer would not work, but the booziness is what gives it its balance. Uinta can be hit or miss for me fortunately this beer is so good it makes up for their errors. Not a bad beer at all.

I like that the malt is so strong; the hops are there, but they get to share the taste sensation with the malt. Hard to believe its 270 calories though.
