In this blog, we are going to talk about another small brewery called Uinta Brewery from Salt Lake City, Utah. We talked about Hyve in my earlier blog. I voiced how it was very disappointed and I did not like it. This time around we are going to talk about one of my favorite beer from them. The beer we are going to sip and visit is called the Uinta Dubhe Imperial Black IPA. This beer style is a marriage of two awesome styles of beer. Porter or stout meets IPAs. You can’t go wrong with that. This is the latest trending beer style out there right now.
This beer in the glass is black until you put it up to the light then it becomes a dark brown. The smell of the beer is of sweet circus. The taste of the beer is slight chocolate and kick of carbonation to circus kick. The aftertaste is very dry but in a good way. The dryness from this beer is from the hops and the IBU is over 130. Just picture yourself eating chocolate cover orange and you will understand this style a little bit better. It is not fully like that but it gives you a better idea.
Here is a descripation from their website (www.uintabrewing.com):
Toasted, chocolaty dark malts align with an astronomical amount of hops.
They put this also on their website (www.uintabrewing.com):
Named Utah’s Centennial Star in 1996, Dubhe (pronounced Doo-bee) illuminates the front of the big dipper from 124 light years away. Dubhe, also known as Alpha Ursae Majoris, is a red giant that appears orange in color and has a mass 4x that of the sun.
Here is a few places to get information on this brewery:
Setting up the tap again, I really love this beer. I love all three beer styles that go into this one beer style. It is a wet dream for people that enjoy all factors that this style and this beer brings to your coffee table or bar. This is one of my favorite one in the Black IPA market along with Widmer Pitch Black IPA. Pitch Black and Dubhe are the same style but totally different. I want you to go out and hunt this beer down and try it. Please let me know what you think and send a message to the brewery. Breweries love to hear from us beer drinkers. Enjoy it! Drink it! Metal it! \m/
