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%.

Dense dark appearance, creamy head formation. Sugarry cocoa and piney hop aroma. Lots of chocolate on the palate, rich with a hint of licorice. Hoppiness is big, citrus and grapefruit in the finish. Definitely packs a fair punch but teh malt goes a long way to masking the 109 IBU’s

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 Dark black. Nice piney hop taste that but has some great roasted malts deep in there as well. Just about the perfect balance between the two. Smooth bitter hop aftertaste. Overall, this is really good stuff. I’m glad I picked some up.

12 oz. bottle. Bottled 1/12/12. Pours a thick, long duration, mocha head, with slight lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 28) body....nose is heavy resin, pine, citrus, lighter toffee/caramel....taste is sweet malts (toffee/caramel, molasses), with pine, grapefruit peel, hints of chocolate, very light licorice, finishing with a clean hop bitterness...mouth feel medium, alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This is well balanced, nicely complex in both aromas and flavors, thoroughly enjoyable, and utterly typical of the style. This beer has character. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Black, tan head. Aroma of pine, roast malt, caramel. Taste has a nice citrus flavor and not too much roast. Medium body and carbonation. Good beer, but I’ve had way better BIPA’s.

Pours a four finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, faint mahogany highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Grapefruit nose, flavor is grapefruit hops, lingering bitter aftertaste, the high ABV is hidden. Bottled Jan 2012, $3.45 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

A very piney smelling beer with a heavy roast background. Extreme bitterness overwhelms a large malt content. Chalky feeling as opposed to being outright heavy. Couldn’t tell you if hemp seed makes any difference in the mix. I’ve never called a beer too extreme, but I see the potential turnoff here for many.

Bottled two months old. A standout powerful beer amongst any black IPA I have had to date. Super rich, encompassing, and lasting. The aroma is a strong spicy pine burnt orange aroma. Flavor is spicy and pine upfront, strongly malty and earthy without being very sweet. It is intensely bitter and mouthwatering throughout and finishes a bit salty. Texture is oily and grainy with modest carbonation.

served in a standard pint glass. the beer was black with a off-white head that left a sheet of lacing. the aroma is a mix of citrusy hops and dark roast coffee. the taste is much the same as the aroma with a dry bitter espresso coffee bitterness. medium bodied it goes down smooth and easy. overall it is a fine example of the style.

Ripe northwest forest nose. Ominous dark brown body with ruby highlights and a tall ecru head. Heavy roasted malt rich with molasses and brown sugar. Strong bitterness upfront that has characteristics of thick pine needle and burnt syrup. Sweet with an earthy quality. A bit of anise and leafy spice (contradiction: noted). Maybe a little sasparilla and root melded with dark chocolate. Caramel and citrus residue on an oily finish with a touch of vanilla. Very nice drink.
