COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Hemp seed.

Introducing the newest addition to Uinta Brewing Company’s lineup, Dubhe (pronounced Doo-bee), an Imperial Black IPA.

Dubhe was named after Utah’s 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 dipper’s spoon. The name “Dubhe” continues Uinta’s 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, Dubhe’s 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%.

From bottle. Pours silky dark brown with tan head. Lacing followed the beer down. Aroma was fruity and roasted malt. Taste is chocolate and roasted malts. Slight bitter on the end. Very good beer!

Tap at City Hospoda, Turku. Opaque black color, small steady off-white head. Sticky burned grassy aroma. Medium-bodied. Ashy and grassy flavour. Burned, restless. Not really classic black ipa. Feels overrated here.

12 oz bottle poured. Quite a big beer here. Unexpected, and didn’t even realize it when I picked it up. Very dark, muddy brown pour with a ton of foam head and lacing. Toast constant aroma here, with a hop addition that I’ve never seen anywhere else. Extremely thick, creamy body to this. A ton of roasted malt that seems overpowering at first, but it seems just right after this sits for a minute. A toasty front, bitter hops all throughout, and a chocolate heavy linger late. Very interesting beer here. A one of a kind for sure. With the heavy roasted malt and chocolate flavors here, I didn’t think I’d be able to pick out the hops, but they are very much present here. Just your classic Imperial Cascadian India Dark Hemp Pale Ale here. Turns out, I love ICIDHPAs.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle best by date August 10, 2017 poured into a snifter. Black with small off-white head. Aroma is pine hops, medium/thick body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is dry dark malt, pine hops, and herbal hops. Lots of flavor, but the his beer is just not for me.

Skunky, but dark malted with a mild caramel undertone. Aroma of your typical IPA. Bitter finish and full-bodied. Solid all around.

BrewProfessor72 (4) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2017 does not count
Very nice overall , rich caramel with a deep pure cocoa flavor , sweet florals & fresh dough . At a 9.3 abv the alcohol rises up into the aroma of this black, clear, full bodied IPA with tan foam. Perfectly balanced sweetness & medium bitterness, creamy yet nicely carbonated and a long finish. A great sipping beer .

jrodooo5 (1681) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Very bold double ipa that pours pretty & smells great but I’m not getting the black aspect. Dark pour w/ a beige head & plenty of lacing. The aroma contains an abundance of hops w/ some dark malt sprinkled in. The taste is overrun w/ the hop presence as the darker malts are barely present to ever so slightly knock some of the bigterness down. It’s great for the true hopheads out there but just not quite my style!

Ctplt777 (530) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Super sweet, nutty, and chocolate forward black ipa. It smells and tastes like a gigantic, delicious imperial stout but has a nice amount of citrus hoppiness that cuts through it. It’s not as in your face as stone enjoy by’s black ipa which was pretty much a citrus bomb but it’s really delicious and an interesting take. The roastiness and chocolate are much more predominate than the citrus but it’s still absolutely delicious. There’s a nice nuttiness also which is a really pleasant touch. Great beer from a great brewery. Cheers.
