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%.

Ar- hint of hop citrus, pineapple are balanced with roasty malts. Light chocolate, Ap- clear dark brown with string tan head Fl- sweet malts up front, roasty and hop bitterness blend very nicely in the mid palate, citrusy hops take over toward the end finishing bitter with hint of tobacco and licorice. Ov- damn good. Would like a touch more hop character for a double IPA, black or not. But still really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

emartell (349) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - FEB 18, 2016
Muy buen aroma donde se combinan notas tanto cítricas como herbales. De color completamente negro, cuerpo medio, Corona de espuma excelente y muy buena retención. Al paladar se perciben sabores complejos, notas dulces, regaliz y punch de lúpulo. Al final es muy equilibrada, las notas torrefactas ahí están, notas a regaliz, notas licorosas, pero el lúpulo es lo destacado. Excelente Imperial Black Ipa.

Turboninja (505) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Medium aroma with sweeter dark berries and some licorice. Pitch black color with small light beige head. Medium/strong taste with licorice, dark berries, some hops and a bit of hemp nuances. Averagely balanced with medium/narrow taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with roasted malts. Medium body with low carbonation. Overall, nicely applied hemp flavor though a bit simple for the percentage.
