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%.

Pours a nearly pitch black with three fingers of khaki foam. Nose is peach, resin, roast and a touch of smoke. Taste is bitter tropical hops leading into some pleasant roast and coffee. One of the better black ipa?s I?ve had since it?s so well balanced. Couldn’t even tell is 9.2.

Bottle. Pours an almost black color with tan foamy head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and roasted malts. Palate is hit first with loads of bitter tingling hops, citrus, pine, then follows a sweet rich roasted malt and dark cocoa backbone. The sweetness balances the bitterness very nicely. A bit of hemp on the finish. Love this!!

From bottle : Thanks Chris you left this. Nice dark pour with a thin brown head...also nice sticky lacing. Love the pleasant aroma of floral hops and citrus. Light sweet taste that has a slightly bitter finish. Body is a little thicker than an average IPA I think. Has a nice texture...only complaint is the finish is a little long with the bitterness. Otherwise, a solid IPA that is enjoyable.

Dick und stark mit einer orfentlichen Prise Alkohol. Dazu Malz, ein wenig Hopfen, Kaffee und einer unausgewogenen Trinkbarkeit. Die Schwere lastet auf diesem Pwio wie ein Amboss, aber weiss sich dann und wann doch zu wehren und punktet mit Sueffigkeit. Nicht schlecht, aber kein grosses Kino.
