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 ruby red, big nicotine coloured head with long retention. Aroma of fruit liqueur filled chocolate pralines. The taste is almost like an inverted chocolate praline, first comes the sweet slightly alcoholic fruity innards, then the bitter dark chocolate. After that the hops take over for a looong and very bitter finish with some roasted notes. Medium mouthfeel. The bitterness in the finish was a bit harsh for me and I think my bottle could have been fresher, but still a very rich and complex beer.

Abrakarl (397) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2012
Extremely hoppy aroma which is very nice, but there is something a little funky in the background besides some coffee. Sweet and some bitterness. This is an interesting type of beer. Caramell perhaps. Will buy more of this. Nice solid head too which is good for overall impression. A bit less bitterness than some IIPAs and not so much carbonation.

Zymurgeist2 (1527) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Out of a 12 oz. bottle. Fruity and citrus aroma with some chocolate (slightly) and perfume. Deep brown (almost black) that shows ruby when held to direct light. Tan head with slight clinging to the side. Nice malt balancing out the bitterness. Almost spritzy, which is a little weird. Perhaps that is from the drying effect of the hops/bitter and high attenuation. Toast near the finish. But the bitterness is always present and holds the final say. As it warms, the bitterness starts to really dominate the malt.

Aurelius (4834) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2012 Very nice, dark, fruity, chewing tobacco ale aroma. Great bottle and label -- A 50’s sci-fi paperback sort of affair. Very dark, tall dense head in a pint. Rich dates and prunes, lots of hops, coffee roast. Sticky. Foam is metallic. Heavy body. Acidity and bitterness get a bit strong in the finish, but otherwise very enjoyable sipping brew. Warming and vaporous towards the end. Big beer. Bottle, Mellow Mushroom, Augusta, GA.

Ktwse (3166) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2012
Pours dark brown with low light tan head. Aroma is light roasted malt, fruit, light hops, somewhat understated. Taste is a different story entirely, rich and creamy. Roasty malt sweetness at first before a fairly long balanced bitterness. Body is medium to full and very creamy with low carbonation. A very atypical DIPA but very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle. (Rating #1300) Pours a clear, dark brown, with a beige head. Expressively hoppy aroma, roasted malt, spruce, grapefruit peel, chocolate, grass, mint leaves, ashes, licorice. Dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy, spicy aroma, spruce, resin, citrus peel, roasted malt, chocolate, ashes, coffee beans. Very well balanced, the intensity of the roasted malt is at just the right level. Very drinkable. (2012-10-31)

Poured from a bottle received by Lukaduke. Thanks! Pours a fairly dark ruby color with a thick, dense head of khaki colored foam. The aroma is dark roast, caramel, light pine, some ginger, and a hint of wood. The first sip dries the mouth out immediately. The taste is like that of strong coffee. I do get some dark roast and some herbal pine notes, but coffee is really what this beer makes me think. I can definitely feel the alcohol on the back of my throat. This is a nice Black IPA.
