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%.

Really nice black IIPA. Pours very dark with a tan head. The aroma has roasty cocoa maltiness, dark caramel, grapefruit,, pine and a bit of dank and tropical hops. It has a medium / full body with some bite to it and light frothy carbonation. The flavor begins with grapefruit, earthy / woody hops, spice, roasty malt with some cocoa notes and a bit of nectar fruit. The finish is very bitter and hoppy. Really great example of the style. Tastes like what it says and not just like a hoppy stout.

Black pour with a light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and fruity hops. Taste is a nice roasted malt base shadowed by the hops. One of the better black ipas I have had. Alc. well hidden. Nice lacing.

Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Aroma of citrus, pine, powdered cocoa, caramel, chocolate malt, anise. Tastes of citrus, pine, chocolate, caramel, espresso, milk chocolate. Very light bodied beer for a 9.2% Imperial Black IPA. Very good beer, and very drinkable......

Poured from the bottle of the 4-pack into the pint glass. This is a mind and taste bud confusing beer, It looks like a Guinness but has the taste of a mighty fine Double IPA with a touch more malt. I would call this a hybrid strong IPA stout, I hope the hemp doesn’t cause me to fail my next drug test, but if it does I’ll just sit home all day and drink this.

Very dark brown color with a pinkie-finger tan head. Aroma is a bready and a tad astringent. The taste is mildly sweet with a slight tang similar to tropical fruit, then fairly in-your-face citrus and rind hops. The palate is a bit juicy and thick, heavier than most black IPAs. Not my favorite black IPA, but very good.

Pours a fairly clear very dark brown with reddish tinge and a thin lasting tan head. Aroma is citrus, pine, chocolate, roasted malts, light licorice, and some coffee notes. Flavour is chocolate, roasted malts, light licorice, citrus, resin, light burnt notes, medium bitterness that lingers a little(which is helped by some dark malt bitterness), mild burnt notes, a fairly dry finish but also some alcohol(more as it warms up) that has some bite and lingers little. Very nice beer!

Dark brown pour with a thin and creamy tan head. Aroma is citrus, licorice and coffee. Flavor is has roasted coffee up front, loads of citrus hops in the middle and a good amount of bitterness on the back end, with lingering roast/burnt notes. Huge body, aggressive hop profile. The flavors are all over the place but are very complex and interesting. The beer gives me hope for this style of beer, which most people seem to interpret as adding chocolate malts to an existing IPA and calling it a day. Excellent.
