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 black with a tan head. Aroma is dark barley malt with a tiny bit of alcohol and some hops. Flavor is roasted malt with pulpy citrus. Bitter deep roasted finish. You can tell its a strong one.

Erzengel (1907) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2014
Very dark in the glass, nice floral hop aroma in the nose. The beer starts nicely floral hopped, very fresh, in the background the nicely roasted coffee aroma of the dark body. The mainpart is very smooth, highly drinkable and nicely dark roasted. And over all lays a layer of great floral hops fitting un the picture. The aftertaste is long, roasted with great floral hops above all.
A great Black IPA! I like that one! --> 13/12/13/13

12oz. blt. pours lightly fizzy with a dark completion. Aroma is roasty, citrus and floral notes. Taste is bitter, somewhat sour with a roasty palate. This is quite the different IPA...its roasty as a porter but as bitter as an IPA, an excellent mix of flavors that really compliment each other.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Almost black pour. Ruby highlights. Big, giant, light tan head. Plenty of lacing. Smell is a nutty fruit and malt. Some caramel. Taste is pretty much a hoppier version of the smell. Pretty good. There is a sweetness mixed with nuttiness that isn’t all that good though.

aroma of hay, herbs, leaves. Taste is a little harsh up front but better as it warms up. I taste a mostly espresso flavor.

dlovell2 (567) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Pours dark brown almost black with a creamy tan head. Amber tint when held up to light. Roasted coffee and chocolate with citrus aroma. Smooth roasted malt start with coffee and chocolate notes. Smooth malt middle then big bitter citrus hop finish. The 9.2 % alcohol is really hidden. Nice black IPA.

swesson (133) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2014
On tap at Parry's. Coal black with a very thin off white head. Aroma is of cocoa. Tastes of chocolate and a bit of licorice and pine. A very good, but very different black IPA. Very syrupy, almost like a carbonated port. Would pair good with anything on a dessert cart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Burnt chocolate malt aroma. Medium bodied, Sips malty sweet up front, with Alcohol. Middle is burnt bitterness that really lashes the tongue. The 9% abv is very well masked by all the powerful flavors. Finish is a balance between hops and malt sweetness. Bitterness lingers. Overall a very bold and powerful black ipa, obviously since it’s a imperial. I am drinking this brew rather fast & cold, it would be interesting to taste it at room temp.
