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%.

rosenbergh (11042) - 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.

mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Dark reddish-brown color. Bold nose of pine, floral notes and herb. Rich and complex flavors - dark chocolate, bitter coffee, burnt raisons - followed by a healthy dose of hop bitterness. Long, smooth finish. Dry and bitter, but not astringent. Well disguised alcohol. A real melange of flavor.

dnstone (2813) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Deeb chocolatey brown-amber in color with a soft kahki-colored sudsy, lacey head. Sticky-fresh hopped aroma that tingles the nose. A sticky hop bomb of a beer..sharp piney accents with a softer roast body underneath. Excellent!

thome50 (1286) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle leftover from a Christmas party. Pours a deep black with tan head. Aroma loads of resinous hops, grass and some slight coffee at the tail end. Taste is there with the hops, even for an almost "past its prime" bottle, but there is a medicinal coffee taste that is hard to overcome. Some fake vanilla and licorice round this out. I loath this style but I have to say this is a nice attempt with the aroma. That said, I find "black IPAs" to be similar to putting a pancake on a cheese plate and throwing some ice cream on the whole thing with some sashimi. All those things are good so why not combine them into a huge mess of crap?!

Brun/mrk rd l med fast, ltt frgat skum. Doft: Kaffe, humle, kola, barr, salt lakrits. Smak: Grape, kakao, metall, kaffe, brnt socker. Mycket bra beska, srskilt med tanke p att det r en mrk ipa.

NordicV (2102) - Malm, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2012
Mrk, nstan svart l med ett kraftfullt ljusbrunt skum som lmnar gott om skumgardiner. Doften r dels rostade toner, rostat kaffe, rostat brd, dels citrus frn humlen. I smaken kommer det rostade och chokladen frst, sen tar en grapefruktbeska ver. Fr egen del tycker jag att beskan gr lite fr mycket t "det vita under skalet". En bra mrk l i grunden och nr bskan lgger sig lite hade den kunnat f ett hgre betyg. De 9,2% mrks inte alls.

EithCubes (5670) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottled on 05/23/12. Nose is roasty, lightly grainy, milk chocolate and a big bouquet of hops. Dark copper pour with a soapy-rocky tan head. Very intense flavor, full bodied and relatively smooth, strong bitterness but its somewhat hidden under the mash-up of everything else, roast and strong but indistinct hops with booze to quickly warm the throat and chest. Some astringency and faint tar, light toast and dark chocolate, and a major web of confusion where hops and roast strive for Olfactory White.
