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%.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2012
About a 1 inch thick head of fine and dense bubbles. Awesome aroma with loads of citrusy hops, some pineapple and a hint of rubber upon a deep exhale. Very dark crimson brown in color. The body is kind of lifeless in the mouth. Thick and heavy and oily. Lots more citrusy flavors along with some roasted grains and herbals hops flavors. Noticable alcohol presence and warming. Not sure about this one. Just seems like a lack of carbonation and mouthfeel hurt this brew considerably. Maybe just an imperfect bottle.

PhillyCraft (3221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2012
Multiple bottlesm really liking this black ipa with hemp seeds. Pours a brown maroon color, deep body. Lacing is medium, head was small. Aromas of roasted malt, licorice, floral hops, citrus, pine, and other herbal scents. Taste is an awesomely balanced black ipa filled with delicious malts and hops working back and forth, caramel, mollases. Really strong hop presence. Warming. Maybe the hoppiest black I have had yet. Very good.

This was a fine Black I P A. Aroma was citrusy, head retention was good, smooth hoppy aroma. Taste was slightly weak for an Imperial. Overall decent drinkability.

Pours cola brown with a tan creamy head. Aroma of resin, hops, and chocolate with chocolate, roasted malt, and a hop bite at the end. Creamy mouth feel. Strong beer, but not overpowering.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2012
Very dark, almost black in color. The hemp smell is great and adds a unique aspect to the beer. It is strong, but not overpowering. Gives a sticky feel in the mouth but that is a small price to pay to drink this beer.

12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown to ruby red when held up to the light, it has a two finger tan head, there is a fair amount of transparency for a beer that is considered black. Aroma is spicy resinous piney hops, chocolate, and creamy, very nice. The taste is a blend of chocolate malt and hops, the finish is a wallop of resin and marijuana, which makes sense since there is hemp seeds in it. Definitely a black IPA for the extreme hop lover, and I am one of them.
