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%.

Tjoxen (173) - SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2012
Pours dark dark brown with nice tanned head with nice lacing. Aroma of ripe fruit, chocolate, a bit prunes and a sting of alcohol. Taste of chocolate and roasted malts. Oily feeling on tongue with a long bitter finish. Well balanced.

BucannonXC5 (1510) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 7, 2012 (purchased at World Market in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for $9.99 for a 4-pack on Nov. 7, 2012). Light black (if that is a color) with two fingers of tan head. Great circular tan retention on the side and above average on the top. Smelled toffee, caramel and dark chocolate malts up front, giving way to a hop finish. Couldnt put my finger on the type of hops, though. Seemed pretty a heavy beer overall. Tasted similar to the smell. Got toffee and coffee malts up front, followed by a hoppy finish. Bitter coffee beans in there, albeit light. Very good overall. Medium-to-full body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Bitter finish. Really good Black IPA. Not too many negatives at all. Glad I have four of these. Uinta is just so good

CarlJonas (231) - Linkping, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2012
Dark ruby red, big nicotine coloured head with long retention. Aroma of fruit liqueur filled chocolate pralines. The taste is almost like an inverted chocolate praline, first comes the sweet slightly alcoholic fruity innards, then the bitter dark chocolate. After that the hops take over for a looong and very bitter finish with some roasted notes. Medium mouthfeel. The bitterness in the finish was a bit harsh for me and I think my bottle could have been fresher, but still a very rich and complex beer.

From Growler. Pours dark brown with amber edges and a medium tan head. Aroma is toasted malts, caramel and big citrus/resin hops. Taste is hoppy citrus and more reson with wooden, dark malts, some vanilla. Bitter and reasonable dry finish. Good.

Abrakarl (433) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2012
Extremely hoppy aroma which is very nice, but there is something a little funky in the background besides some coffee. Sweet and some bitterness. This is an interesting type of beer. Caramell perhaps. Will buy more of this. Nice solid head too which is good for overall impression. A bit less bitterness than some IIPAs and not so much carbonation.

Zymurgeist2 (2002) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Out of a 12 oz. bottle. Fruity and citrus aroma with some chocolate (slightly) and perfume. Deep brown (almost black) that shows ruby when held to direct light. Tan head with slight clinging to the side. Nice malt balancing out the bitterness. Almost spritzy, which is a little weird. Perhaps that is from the drying effect of the hops/bitter and high attenuation. Toast near the finish. But the bitterness is always present and holds the final say. As it warms, the bitterness starts to really dominate the malt.

Aurelius (5154) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2012 Very nice, dark, fruity, chewing tobacco ale aroma. Great bottle and label -- A 50s sci-fi paperback sort of affair. Very dark, tall dense head in a pint. Rich dates and prunes, lots of hops, coffee roast. Sticky. Foam is metallic. Heavy body. Acidity and bitterness get a bit strong in the finish, but otherwise very enjoyable sipping brew. Warming and vaporous towards the end. Big beer. Bottle, Mellow Mushroom, Augusta, GA.

Ktwse (4240) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2012
Pours dark brown with low light tan head. Aroma is light roasted malt, fruit, light hops, somewhat understated. Taste is a different story entirely, rich and creamy. Roasty malt sweetness at first before a fairly long balanced bitterness. Body is medium to full and very creamy with low carbonation. A very atypical DIPA but very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
