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%.

On tap at Collin Pub, Seattle. Dark brown, moderate head, and a nice hoppy aroma with some malt notes in the background. Taste is a nice blend of hop bitterness, with moderately complex, roasty, but subtle malt notes in the background. Palate is substantial, as it should be for a 9 percent ABV, but the alcohol is completely hidden. Balanced, interesting, easy to drink; this is a winner.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Dallas! Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, pine, and citrus. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, pine, coffee, citrus, and some alcohol. Very nice.

Bottle, pours deep chestnut with rimy off-white head. Aroma is candied and lightly nutty. Some vanilla in there, good stuff. Deep resiny bitterness balanced ny moderately light malt. Finishes fairly dry. Quite enjoyable.

Awesome beer! Somewhere in between a porter and an IPA. Nice hop bitterness with some chocolate and coffee flavors.

On tap at Side Door Pub in Chalfont, PA. Dark/Black IPAs confuse me, but this had better IPA flavor than most that I've tried with that dark beer mouthfeel we all love. It's not my favorite style, but this is an excellent beer for Black IPA lovers.

Awesome! Dark in flavor and color. Very pleasant combination of roasty and chocolate flavors with a touch of hop crispness. For being labeled as a black IPA, I think the flavor runs more to the porter side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color with small off-white head. Aroma and flavor or dominantly hoppy but with a strong malt presence as well. Tasted like a mix of IPA and porter. Very interesting balance and good price too

Dark brown, bubbly, medium small tan head. Aroma is extremely pleasant, pine and citrus hops with a background of roasted malts. Medium body. Alcohol is only present as a warming factor but does not intrude on the flavor. At first the flavor comes across as an above average IPA with nice floral and piney hops and then there is a roasted coffee-like malt component. One of the few of this style where this dynamic enhances everything rather than coming across as 2 styles mixed together for no purpose. Dry throughout. Quite drinkable too. This is a very good beer.

I have recently noticed a couple of beers by Uinta at my local grocery store. Picked this up in a 4-pack. $8.99 which is so/so for a price point, but you look at other 4-packs (ie. Green Flash $10.99) its no so bad. Pours a dark amber, almost black color with a creamy, thick tan head. Lot’s of lacing left on the glass. Aroma of hops, roasted malt, doughy yeast and I do detect a little hemp once up to the nose. Taste is rather hoppy and bitter, with a roasted malt backbone. Smooth, creamy mouthful. Medium body, thats easy to drink. On the end, it’s bitter with a alcohol bite. Good beer and my 1st beer from Uinta, that I would buy again. Looking forward to trying others from this brewery.
