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%.

Tmoney99 (14274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear dark black color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good complex beer.

Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and fruity with roasted malts, apricots, pineapple, grapefruit juice, dark bread, salty liquorice, pine, dark roast coffee and alcohol. Mouthfeel is round, tiny boozy, tiny oily bitter and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, grapefruit juice, pine, dark roast coffee, lemon zest and orange peal. A very good BIPA!

SHIG (4956) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep black with thin light brown to tan head. Aroma is a mix of right malt and hops. Taste is strong hops up front that subside a bit to show the roasted malt and dark chocolate. Very lively and yet soothing at the same time.

VsXsV (4395) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Clear, red/dark brown liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of grass, ash, coffee, chocolate and biscuit. Thin. Taste is dry (maybe a bit sweet) and light to medium bitter with notes of grass, chocolate and vegetal hops. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Too vegetal, too weak.

DSG (13957) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle. Black-colored with a big beige head. Hoppy aroma with pine needles, resin, grapefruit and some roastiness and coffee notes in the background. Bittersweet flavor with roasted malt, faint coffee notes, lots of piney hops, a bit of licorice and a finish with a big bold bitterness (that stays in your mouth long after swallowing) and a hint of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Nice.

steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Reminds me of Anchor Porter. Hop-forward, dark and roasty. Complex combination of hops along with that strong malt presence. Good, but I dont think of it as a strong IPA.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7619) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large creamy dark tan head that lingered forever and left decent lacing. The aroma was dryish floral, perfumey and resinous hops with a touch of roasty malts. The flavor was bitter though semi-sweet with notes of anise, floral hops, perfume and resin. The finish was fairly long and turned dry with perfume and resin lingering. Moderately full bodied and creamy. Solid.

gyllenbock (8807) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012. Clear, dark amber with a medium head. The aroma and taste were fresh and hoppy. Also with some licorice and some roasted notes. Nice bitterness in this one, a beer with a good character. Very smooth and drinkable, must be on of the best Black IPA:s. I liked it a lot.

crossovert (12439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2012
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 11/10/11. I am not a huge fan of this style but am always trying new stuff. I didnt pick this out for myself but was given it. It pours nearly a pitch black with a real microfoamy tan head. The smell works. It has a huge sweetness but also a nice bit of hops and a noticeable bit of chocolatey roasty hops. The flavor isnt anything to behold. It bitterweet but with a lot of both. The chocolate bread flavor just doesnt mesh with the hops. I like the bitterness and the mouthfeel but this recipe seems un-thought-out.
