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%.

From bottle to tulip. Pours a pitch black with a quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is of roasted malt with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is a nice balance between the roasted caramel and chocolate malts with a good hop bitterness. Average MF that is surprisingly easy to drink and finishes clean. Overall this is a very nice representation of a black IPA.

Leighton (19167) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London - many thanks to Seth! Pours clear, red-brown with a big, tan cream head. Dark malts and rich pine in the aroma. Medium to big sweet flavor with juicy pine, good roast, dark sugars. Medium to full bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Lightly warming finish, pretty resinous, with good sticky pine, strong roasted malt character, earth, some cocoa. Pretty nice overall.

12oz bottle. Ruby red-black, with a foamy beige head. Big, sweet aroma...nails it. Pretty much captures what Black IPA is all about..sticky rich resinous specialty malt, and a nice citrus hop backbone to balance it out a bit. The hemp does add some depth and dimension too, A really solid example of the style, and while intensely rich, incorporates the alcohol well.

I loved this beer! I think this is what a black IPA should taste like. Its bitter, piney, resiny, chocolatey, smokey, and roasty. It is extremely complex and big. Its definitely a bigger IPA than most, hence the imperial label. As this beer warms, the roasted, chocolate notes come through even more, which is fine with me! Given that its an imperial IPA, my only slight complaint is that I could have tolerated even more hops on the nose. The hop aroma did not blow me away, but it was definitely very nice.

On tap. Pours a deep black with a white head and lots of lacing. It has a great aroma of coffee, chocolate, and some piney hops in the background. The flavor is coffee and dark chocolate up front with a hoppy middle and a coffee and hop finish over a smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12oz bottle, shared. Best by 4/22/13. Very dark red / black but clear still color (some light comes through). Thin khaki head, respectable lace. Moderate earthy hop nose. Chocolate, earthy hops, some light roast. Nice bitterness, but a bit of sweet, nowhere near as bitter, say, Sublimely Self-Righteous, but has a super nice hoppiness, and much more pronounced chocolate (and roasty) character. Awesome earthy hoppy dank chocolatey aftertaste, very interesting. Medium / bigger body, smooth light carbonation, very dry texture. At $2.25 a bottle, this is a really great value. Will be revisiting.

Bottle. Thanks to Seth for the pour! The appearance is deep brown with a massive tan head. The nose is spruce, bright hops, loads of chocolate and rough, gritty earth. The taste is fresh cantaloupe and berry fruit salad. Bitter, woody hoppiness. Thick roasted malt body. Long bitter finish. Full, stately body. Nice, active carbonation. Overall, a pretty nice black IPA. Aggressive, pleasing.

From a 12 oz bottle. Pours black with an off white head. Citrusy hop aroma. Toasted malt, chocolate and licorice notes with a very bracing bitter finish.

rosenbergh (10892) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2013
355 ml bottle. Bottled on 05/14/12. (State Line Liquors) Elkton, MD.
Pitch black colour with small tan head and red hue. Fruity hops, moderate bitterness, roasted malt, liquorice, dark berries and dryness in smooth and balanced aroma. Flavour isnt exactly as smooth but theres plenty of hoppy bitterness, roasted maltiness, ash, some alcohol and resiny hops. Alcohol isnt that much present. Good. Better. 4.1 is quite a lot for the flavour but otherwise this is absolutely great.
