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%.

A friend of mine gave this to me as a gift. I had never heard of it until then. I wasn't expecting much. Wow! I was taken by surprise! Rich black color that reminded me of a stout. But the real surprise was the flavor. The boldness of the hops...just what I enjoy. The rich, piney, citrus flavor gave way to a hint if licorice. This is now one of my new favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ home. Big lasting and compact biege head with small bubbles and nice lacing. Color is clear dark red. Aroma is tropical and reisinly with toffee, licorice and a subtle chocolate note. Sweet flavor, fruity with lots of pine, grape and mango. Well balaced caramel and toffee. Roasted notes of coffee and chocolate. It finishes with a lasting and strong bitterness with a nice blend of lemon zest, grape and dark chocolate and licorice lingering for long in the mouth.

(Bottle). A little weak but fresh smell of hops with hints of roasted malt and tropical fruits. The taste is fresh with clear hints of hops that is well balanced against a base of roasted malt. This is not a sprawling explosion of flavors, but a well-balanced composition of hops and roasted malt. I do not know what the "hemp seed’s" is giving to the taste but perhaps they can be found somewhere. In the finish there is a distinct but not intrusive bitter taste of grapefruit. A very refreshing and dangerously easy to drink beer, to take account of the 9.2% ABV. Highly recommended!

Brown, tall, lasting, loose head, little lace. Characterful and pleasant nose. Full body with flavors matching in strength, silky, assertive but flattering alcohol heat and carbonation, great balance, long palate. Bittersweet, measured sharpness in background. Roast flavor predominates but it's not the usual one. A little medicinal in a pleasant way, Interesting and delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Defreni (2533) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2014
Flaske: Sort klar øl med et flot skumhoved. Duft af amerikansk humle, citrus og allerede her brændte noter. Disse brændte noter tager over i smagen som er nærmest hård og bider i munden. Alt det jeg ikke kan lide i sådan en hybridøl.

Nose is licorice, resin, deep bitterness, and some roast. It’s weekly roasted but there is a very present licorice feel to it, the hop profile is not at all how I would like it, but instead incredibly bitter and warrior-like, not that well balanced, and not a high drinkability.
