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%.

Vignale (3254) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Flaska från SB. Mörkbrun klibbig vätska med beige skum. Stor söt citrusdoft, mycket grape och smörkola. Stor söt besk grapesmak, bra bett i beskan, smörkola, söt lakrits och smörkola. Välbalanserad, stroa smaker och riktigt god. Ett maffigt öl där humlen verkligen får stort utrymme och den rostade malten skapar runda, söt fylliga smaker i god harmoni.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Hazy dark brown with a nice dark beige head. Aroma is full of chocolate covered citrus peels, with other spicy and slightly piney complex hop aromas, mint and some roast. Pleasing. Dark chocolate flavors, roasted coffee, intense hop flavors (bitter citrus and earth), some chocolate covered dark cherries, ash and high bitterness. Full body, super long complex finish, nicely carbonated and satisfying. A nice sipper as a digestif.

Pours dark dark brown with nice tanned head with nice lacing. Aroma of ripe fruit, chocolate, a bit prunes and a sting of alcohol. Taste of chocolate and roasted malts. Oily feeling on tongue with a long bitter finish. Well balanced.

BucannonXC5 (1411) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 7, 2012 (purchased at World Market in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for $9.99 for a 4-pack on Nov. 7, 2012). Light black (if that is a color) with two fingers of tan head. Great circular tan retention on the side and above average on the top. Smelled toffee, caramel and dark chocolate malts up front, giving way to a hop finish. Couldn’t put my finger on the type of hops, though. Seemed pretty a heavy beer overall. Tasted similar to the smell. Got toffee and coffee malts up front, followed by a hoppy finish. Bitter coffee beans in there, albeit light. Very good overall. Medium-to-full body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Bitter finish. Really good Black IPA. Not too many negatives at all. Glad I have four of these. Uinta is just so good…

CarlJonas (231) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2012
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.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 5, 2012
From Growler. Pours dark brown with amber edges and a medium tan head. Aroma is toasted malts, caramel and big citrus/resin hops. Taste is hoppy citrus and more reson with wooden, dark malts, some vanilla. Bitter and reasonable dry finish. Good.
