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%.

Reimer96 (1390) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a clear but almost opaque black with a frothy dense brown head that leaves rings of lace on the glass. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, anise, chocolate, resin, citrus, pine and grapefruit. Taste is chocolate, roasted malts, anise, pine, grapefruit and a light warming of alcohol with a smooth bitterness. At 9.2 percent it also has a semi dry finish which doesn’t happen too often and the bitterness of the roasted malts and hops are in great balance. Wicked black ipa that would be a 10 if the alcohol bite was tamed a bit. Maybe even if they drew it back to a 9 percent beer this would be in a class of its own.

On Tap at "The Yard". Was looking for a dark beer to try but I picked the wrong one. Its appearance and aroma are nothing out of the ordinary but I didn’t like the taste at all. It was very carbonated and left my whole mouth tingly. After I swallowed it there was a very bitter and harsh aftertaste left in the back of my mouth and throat. Not something I would try again. It reminded me of DuClaws Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut butter Porter. I got the same harsh aftertaste and carbonation. Not an enjoyable flavor for my liking.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together over facebook chat. Is Double Black IPA not a style yet? It should be. The beer is very black. A beige head sits on top and is one finger plus. The aroma is that of an IPA with fruit being dominant and some earth behind that. The flavor is citrus fruit and some yeast. Nothing black is tasted yet (55.4F). At 59F some cocoa finally pops up and it becomes more earthy, too. This is very tasty and the hops are nicely balanced by the malts. Bitterness is very mild. Alcohol is not noted at all. I like this beer. It offers some really nice rich flavors that are fruity.

hayduke (3507) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a rich dark brown with a creamy tan head and beautiful lacing . Nose is citrus and pine with some light chocolate. Medium body. Some alcohol in the mouthfeel. Flavor is rich and full of lots of nuances. Very much an IPA but with the chocolate moves to the Black variety, And with the booze moves to the Imperial variety. Bitter finish of citrus. The is a very nice beer and drinks quite easily for so much alcohol.

UncleKorm (922) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2014
On tap poured a deep dark brown w/ a medium foamy beige head and thick lacing. Big sweet boozy hop aromas. Initial flavor is bold sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are big piney hops, dark breads, rye and dark chocolate. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel and a warm finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Evolutionary (308) - Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Tap at na mellow mushroom. Black pour with thin froth head. Smokey hop nose and smooth bite. The alcohol is hidden in there well and the hop is nearly perfectly balanced. Well played. Aftertaste is pleasant.
