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%.

Black with little head. Aroma is centennial hops. Taste adds citrus, rye and licorice. Nice gentle carb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very dark ruby brown with a fine khaki head that recedes quickly. Hops contribute citrus and grapefruit to the aroma while the unique malt bill gives off chocolate, toffee, and breadcrust. The roasted malt flavors blend well with the bitterness from NW hops; chocolate, light roast, burnt bread, piney. The roasty tanins and bitter hop profile lend a very dry, tannic finish. A well done black IPA. It’s rich and complex, but at 9.2% it’s not something to drink more than one of.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Dark brown leading to black pour, eggshell white head with nice sticky lacing. chocolate in the aroma with some eggnog notes. Chewy flavor with some cocoa, a bit of grapefruit bitterness, a hint of licorice and some molasses in the back end. Sticky mouthfeel. Interesting brew.

Um...wow! Looks like a porter/stout, smells like an IPA, first tastes like an IPA, then finishes like a porter/stout. Loved it!

This was a nice and dark pour that didnt let any light through. Nice smell of light hemp and wood. Taste was hoppy with a good amount of dry hop flavor. Enjoyable but defiantly a sipper.

Being generally new to IPAs, more specifically BLACK IPAs, I suppose my palate isn’t as refined as others reviewing this. Very good qualities of an Imperial, with the hoppiness of an IPA. Interesting brew and interesting brew from Utah, of all places...
