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%.

12 oz bottle. Pours a pretty dark brown with thin lacing. Im a bit put off by the huge dark fruit aroma of raisins and plums, but the taste more than makes up for it. Alcohol notes aside, the flavor includes the dark fruit but also a nice load of roast malts that last into the finish without being astringent. Hops do a nice job offsetting the huge sweet malt bomb. Completely unbalanced and proud to be so!

Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark liquid with notes of red, light brown head. Hoppy and malty sweet smell with some roasted notes in the background. Similar taste, both pine and fruity hops. Very nice beer. They managed the whole hoppy bitter together with roasted bitterness very nicely.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - NOV 8, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Hazy dark brown with a nice dark beige head. Aroma is full of chocolate covered citrus peels, with other spicy and slightly piney complex hop aromas, mint and some roast. Pleasing. Dark chocolate flavors, roasted coffee, intense hop flavors (bitter citrus and earth), some chocolate covered dark cherries, ash and high bitterness. Full body, super long complex finish, nicely carbonated and satisfying. A nice sipper as a digestif.
