COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Hemp seed.

Introducing the newest addition to Uinta Brewing Companys lineup, Dubhe (pronounced Doo-bee), an Imperial Black IPA.

Dubhe was named after Utahs 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 dippers spoon. The name Dubhe continues Uintas 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, Dubhes 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%.

A dark body with red highlights, when held up to a light. A nice tan head that had some nice retention and adequacy lace. Aroma had a nice roasted malt base upfront and a slight citrus hop note. Initial flavor had a great roasted malt presence, a nice balance between grapefruit hops and some resinous hops. Finish was nice and dry and the mouth-feel was full.

I am a big fan of this beer. Incredibly hoppy and nicely bitter. Pours a nice dark brown to black. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandman (2899) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2013
Clear black body, light brown head. Aroma has nice roasted grains, dark fruits and intensive resiny hops. Very nice and balanced black IPA aroma. Flavour is bit ashy and acidic, some paper between the hops and malty taste. Some berries. Bit drop from the excellent aroma, but really good beer though.

hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2013
12 Oz. Bottle. Poured dark (cola like) with a tan head that didnt stay too long. Aroma is of hops, pine and citrus. roasted malts flavors balanced with sweet notes of coffee and chocolate also very hoppy and with deliciously bitter and dry finish. The ABV while high is not that noticeable. Pretty nice beer very enjoyable.

Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderately malty/grainy. Appearance: small, frothy, light brown, initial head that quickly dissipated. Dark brown, cola-like body. Taste: lightly sweet, pumpernickel-like initial flavor with lightly bitter , toasted finish and long duration. Palate: medium-to-full bodied with dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall: outstanding. Complex flavor that is not overly bitter. I look forward to drinking this beer again.

12 oz. bottle from Jungle Jims. Pours a dark cola brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is grapefruit citrus and resiny hops, roasted malts, dark chocolate with perhaps a hint of anise. The flavor is a nice combination of herbal and citrus hops, roasted malts, dark chocolate,some resiny notes and a touch of black coffee. This is a nice black IPA. The alcohol is only noticeable as a warming sensation.
