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%.

Bottle poured into glass gives a large coffee with cream colored head. the head is a bit rocky with good retention. Leaves heavy lacing. Beer is almost pure black, with hints of brown and red in the light.Smells of citrusy hops (mostly orange and grapefruit), some more earthy/floral hops, caramel, roasted malts, and chocolate.Taste starts with citrusy and floral hops along with roasty malts, the roasty malts quickly overpower the hops then comes a strong chocolate taste (more than smell) along with a bit of hemp seed in the finish. Has a crisp, but very roasted finish. Has a medium body with a bit of a buttery/creamy feel, low carbonation. Black IPA’s arent my favorite, but this one is a very good beer.

Pours almost black with a cream head. Aromas of malt, chocolate, coffee and pine. Taste is chocolate/caramel malts, dry coffee, spruce and a bitter hoppy alcohol aftertaste. Very good offering.

Bricks (837) - Delaware, USA - JUL 11, 2015
A dark beauty, with a nice foamy head. Aroma is like a hybrid between an IPA and a stout... just a bit harsh. Tastes like a coffee/chocolate stout with some hops added. Awesome.

tfontana (366) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle from Friar Tuck in Crestwood MO. Aroma is piney, resinous hops over rich roasted malts. Appearance is dark brown to black--almost opaque, with 1 finger-width off white head and nice lacing. Taste is medium malty sweetness with moderate bitter interplay. Palate is medium bodied, creamy with lively carbonation and long, more bitter than sweet finish. Overall, nice complexity with more bitter than sweet but decent balance.

Dogbrick (10409) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2015
This brew is a dark brown color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, pine and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, resiny hops and a bit of dark chocolate. The finish is roasty malt up front with an earthy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Bottle. Near-black pour with lasting khaki head. A lot of pine resin in the aroma. Flavor is well-balanced considering the ABV.

Oakes (14042) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
Medium brown, bit hazy. Has a light piney hop character, has a fairly alcoholic character that, with a fair bit of roast, makes his much more like an imperial stout. Good, but damn that’s a lot of alcohol in the finish.

ordybill (936) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- A very nice blend of hops and sweet malt. Appearance- A great looking brew. ours black with a small brown head. I really looks good. Taste- Big flavor of hops and caramel. I then note some fruit and malt in the end. Palate- This is a heavy bodied beer with mild carbonation. It has a dry finish. Overall- A really good example of an American Black Ale. Highly recommended.
