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%.

Really, really good dark beer. Not too hoppy, well balanced. Just read the Uinta website which lists the IBU as 109. You would never guess just from the taste- very smooth. Really well done. Wishing I had a six pack instead of a single.

Dark color, almost black; medium sized head. Frankly, its an Imperial Stout, maybe with just less body, and less sweetness than some others; it has a very good flavor of chocolate and roasted malts, some molasses too, and powerful hopping; apparently a bit resiny as well; the aroma is instead somehow light.
Very good beer.

Picked this up on a whim even though Im not a fan of black IPAs. $9 for a four pack and it was bottled 12/22/11 so it was about seven weeks old at the point I drank it. Dark black color which is no surprise, decent head. Smells slightly hoppy, roasted malt, not bad at all. I like it already. Taste is oily citrus, kind of sweet, not bad and exactly what I like from a strong black IPA. Overall, Ill buy this again once in a while. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-03-2012 05:04:38

jsquire (4275) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Dark mahogany color out of the bottle with a thin beige head. Dark brown sugar, molassass, and hop resin nose. Noticable alcohol on the palate. The hop resin and grapefruit rind hops are very strong, with bitter chocolate, some burnt toast, dark brown sugar and molassess sweetness. Long hop bitterness in the finish. This is a big beer with lots going on.

rickgordon (3858) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2012
Bottled. Cinnamon roll in nose, with sweet syrup and hops of course. The hops are rather earthy than tropical fruity. Taste is good but way too sweet. Bitterness is also a bit low. Tasty beer but lacks in flavor profile. Its the sweetness I guess.

Pours dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, coffee, dark chocolate, and fruit. Tastes of roasted malt, more grapefruit and pine, hint of licorice. Full and smooth with lingering bitterness. A really nicely done black IPA.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 Pours a dark brown with a 1-finger khaki head that recedes very slowly and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is faint roasted malt that is quickly overpowered by a barrage of hops. Taste is similar: dark chocolate for a split second before a tongue-splitting hop bitterness. This is not a beer for an inexperienced beer drinker, but is guaranteed to put the hair on your chest. Excellent black IPA, and the 9.2% abv packs a punch at the end of the glass.

Dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Malty with hoppy notes. Malt, fruit, hops and bitterness. Full body with a balanced bitter after taste.
