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%.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 06/07/14. I assume that is an expiration date. The pour is a deep dark brown color with a decent beige head. It lingers and laces. The aroma is a mesh of dark. roasted malts but the hop character is front and center. The body is medium with some astringency. The taste brings out the hop character quite well making for a bitter finale and an enjoyable drinking experience.

Mycket mjuk å krämig black IPA. Väldigt fin med svaga toner choklad å kaffe samt en fräschhet bara bra IPA kan ge. Ja åh USA givetvis är den ifrån . Därifrån tendera bara bra IPA öl hitta till Sverige. Många bryggare har att lära av Vilhelm Mobergs land.

Fruity wheat aroma and dark brown color. Good flavor but a bit too bitter of an after taste for me. The bitter lasts a long time.
