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%.

Pours almost black, with a decent head. Roasty malt aromas mixed with strong pine and citrus. Taste is hop foward followed by slightly harsh burnt and roasted flavors. Finishes with more hop bitterness, ending with a little burn. I would like a little more malt sweetness for balance. Great bold beer.

Lukaduke (3038) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Pours a deep umber black color with a big three finger mocha colored head that laces nicely... Aromas of citrus pine and chocolate nice ripe juicy hops and dark roasted notes. On the palate its deep and dark with a big full body. Nice stout creaminess and a touch of nutty flavor that mingles with the rich chocolate and licorice flavors. Good bright hop flavors reappear on the tail end to brighten up the finish and add some interesting bitterness in on the backend.

Baz7778 (58) - SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Hop and dark malt dominate the nose, drinks pretty light given the high ABV, has a lingering bitter dark molasses like finish that sticks around. A big but well made beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tmoney99 (13602) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear dark black color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good complex beer.

SHIG (4675) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep black with thin light brown to tan head. Aroma is a mix of right malt and hops. Taste is strong hops up front that subside a bit to show the roasted malt and dark chocolate. Very lively and yet soothing at the same time.

VsXsV (3967) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Clear, red/dark brown liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of grass, ash, coffee, chocolate and biscuit. Thin. Taste is dry (maybe a bit sweet) and light to medium bitter with notes of grass, chocolate and vegetal hops. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Too vegetal, too weak.
