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%.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUL 29, 2012
A tiny beige sheet covers the close to black pour that is totally clear. Fairly green, resinous, citrusy hop profile dominates the aroma in which subtler dark chocolate and licorice notes manage to shine. Feeling rather dry, both torrefied and hoppy in mouth, which rhymes with a strong bitterness that cleanses the palate out. The burnt grain character feels a bit exotic, but surprisingly not all that thick for a 9%+ ale. A bit straightforward in fact and not particularly captivating in the hop department, but perhaps that is due to subpar freshness? I can’t tell as I see no date on the bottle, but it was bought two months ago.

McTapps (3624) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle from trade with Cunningham - thank you so much, Henrik! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with smooth body and low head. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and herbs. Taste of fresh hops, spruce, oak, raisins, wild flowers, herbs and peppers. Alcohol is not hidden what makes it a bit difficult to drink - very strong. Intense and deep bodied. Enjoyed it.

Senap (334) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2014
Oj, den här var det bra tryck i. Kaffe, mörk choklad m.m. påminner i smaken om en imp stout än en ipa. En upplevelse, men inte för alla tillfällen.

MrHult (196) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2014
Flaska från Systembolaget. Svart vätska med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar gräddig fruktig amerikahumle. Mycket fyllig smak med tydlig maltkaraktär men även en del humle. Man känner att den är 9.2% men inte på ett dåligt sätt.

HULK777 (335) - - JUL 25, 2014
Nice color and crown. Fresh aroma containing citrus, honney, and toffee. Sweet licorice dominates the flavor palate. A more bitter licorice taste appears afterwards. Some hints of tar also.

Decent fruity aroma. The taste is lightly hopped but mostly bitter with small hints of dark chocolate. Nice bitterness that fills the mouth a long time. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Overall a very good beer. I’m not a fan of the mouth feel but flavor and aroma is great. Also a high gravity Beer. Another good release by Uinta.

Freshness uncertain. Pours black with small head. No hop character to balance roasted malts. Over carbonated.
