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%.

Dark cola pour. Nice off-white head. Aroma is big citrus hops, balanced with light chocolate and sweet licorice. The taste follows the nose splendidly. Thick creamy mouthfeel, good beer.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Roasted malt and light chocolate aroma with a floral hop background. Flavor is bitter hops at the start with light chocolate and roasted malt middle. Lingering hop bitterness on the aftertaste. Couldn’t taste the hemp seed, but then again I don’t know what it tastes like.

Flaska från MrHult, stort tack! En kolsvart med fantastisk ljusbrun trefingerskrona som är gräddig och fin. Bra doft av humle, rostad malt och kaffe. Stor smak, lakrits, mörk choklad och kaffet igen. Mycket fin kropp och beska, äntligen en svart IPA i min smak!

Draft at the growler nyc on stone street. Pours a deep black color. Nice malt hop balance and masks the booze. Decent beer

12 fl.oz. bottle as a gift
Black one with a good lookin’ creamy beige head. Atoma ppens with hrass, some chocolate, resin and pine, light cocoa. At the first slips the beer was a bit unbalanced but after a while it opens, warmed up and gets really better. Creamy body with cocoa and some roasted barley, balanced hops like reson and grass, herbs and juniper.

Bottle: Pours slightly rubied black with a steady tan head. Caramel, pine and grapefruit/prange-peel aroma. Taste is bitter, roasty chocolate, resiny hops, burnt coffee....almost a licorice note in there as well.... Creamy...like a hoppy, bitter porter.

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
