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%.

Black brew, beige head with nice lacing. Sharp bitterness form both the roast grains and hops. Hops dominate the aroma, and most of the taste. It’s hard to determine if this a black IPA or an imperial, but who cares. It’s really good!

Brown/red pour with light tan head and lace. Aroma is roasted malt, bread and resiny hops. Light syrupy sweet malt start with a bit of a harsh bitter finish with nice abv warmth. Thin bodied and a tad fizzy. but still ok

Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a medium java head. Nose is deep hops with a predominance of grapefruit, and finishes with pine and resin. Taste is bitter, hoppy and citrusy with deep pine and resin. Alcohol is easily appreciated along with some malty notes as well. Finish is bitter with moderate to long lingering taste, Nice. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours black with a brown head and aroma of hops and roasted malt. Taste is bitter up front, the hops, pine, and citrus with the underlying roasted malt and caramel leading to a big bitter finish. Nice black IPA

Pours black in the glass with a thick soapy head. Dark cocoa flavors upfront, a slight piney mint hops note and followed by a roasted coffee aftertaste. Clean aroma of roasted malt, almonds and a hint of minty hops. Overall, much better than i expected. Thanks for sharing barzigkin!

codfishh (38) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours dark brown to black with ruby highlights, creamy tan head with large bubbles. Aroma is piney resiny hops with some coffee roasted malt. Flavor is piney with some tropical passion fruit flavor, some sweet caramel malt balances the bitterness. Mouth feel is medium body with medium carbonation, creamy but the roast and the hops finish dry. Great beer.

Coffee black pour with a decent tan head. Heavy hop aroma and some roasted malts as well. Pretty well balanced BIPA. Lots of roasted malts and some earthy hops in the flavor. Pretty drinkable, and I haven’t come across too many BIPA’s that I can say that about.

Sampled a the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a dark brown near clear with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a pine and dark grain combination with a bit of mustiness backing. Flavor has some pine and dark grain combination with a bit of must and dryness towards the finish.
