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%.

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...

Really, really good dark beer. Not too hoppy, well balanced. Just read the Uinta website which lists the IBU as 109. You would never guess just from the taste- very smooth. Really well done. Wishing I had a six pack instead of a single.

Dark color, almost black; medium sized head. Frankly, it’s an Imperial Stout, maybe with just less body, and less sweetness than some others; it has a very good flavor of chocolate and roasted malts, some molasses too, and powerful hopping; apparently a bit resiny as well; the aroma is instead somehow light.
Very good beer.

Picked this up on a whim even though I’m not a fan of black IPA’s. $9 for a four pack and it was bottled 12/22/11 so it was about seven weeks old at the point I drank it. Dark black color which is no surprise, decent head. Smells slightly hoppy, roasted malt, not bad at all. I like it already. Taste is oily citrus, kind of sweet, not bad and exactly what I like from a strong black IPA. Overall, I’ll buy this again once in a while. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-03-2012 05:04:38
