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 pour with a large amount of white foam. Aroma was primarily citrus (unusual for a Black IPA) with some roasted malt. The taste was wonderfully hoppy, but still had a robust and sweet dark character. I am not sure how much the hemp seed factored in, but I liked the overall product. Excellent beer.

32oz growler from Moondog Growlers- Marietta, GA -----> snifter. Pours cola black with orange hues around the perimeters. Impressive 3 finger head that stays for a long time, lacing is off the charts. Aroma is heavy pine and SWEET citrus. The pleasing aroma stays with the beer from start to finish. Mouthfeel is standard IPA (a tad on the thin side). Taste is slight roasted malt (very slight) with excellent fruity, spicey hops that blend without one overpowering the other. Hides the 9.2% very. very well. High quality iIPA and not something I expected from Utah.

Fresh from Chicago trip. Pours black with generous foam,Roasty aroma. The hemp lends it a little "roap" and dryness, otherwise a black ipa all the way, just a higher abv route getting there.

unclemattie (4328) - Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Growler @ Cumming Growler Shop. Black \ dark brown pour. Thick, dark tan head. Aroma of lemon zest, grapefruit, and pine hops. All on top of a roasted barley, toasted grain backbone. Very nice nose. Very creamy texture, heavy bodied. Sharp hop, wooded flavor. Some earthy tones. A good amount of burnt grain flavor, soft coffee notes. Tastes like burnt toast. Very nice hop balances out the alcohol burn in the end. Very enjoyable. Lingering hop bitterness left behind on the palate. Imperial Black IPA for sure. (3348)

Foxbush (1422) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2012
This an IPA from The Caboose in Ashland. The ale poured a deep black with a nice tan head. The head dissapated with lacing down the glass. Citrus aroma was evident on the nose and to taste. This ale is more complex than most IPAs. The roasted malt adds much to overall enjoyment. The high alcohol is deceptive for 9.2%. The carbonation was average and finish had a nice bitterness in the upper mouth.

Wittales (693) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Appearance was clearish root beer black with a creamy diminishing off white 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas where sweet chocolately coco puffs cereal, touches of caramel, spices, toast roasted malts. Hops are mild citrus and spice. Taste was chocolate roasty caramel ,dark fruit of cherry. Grassy piney herbal earthy spicy mild hops just to balance the malts. Palate was smooth yet light carbonation and medium body with an average slick length finish. Balanced Black IPA...

Draft at capones. Pours dark with a small tan head and a little lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma is full of citrus and chocolate malt. Taste is very bitter with a dry finish. This is a killer black ipa.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark coca cola color. Full body and flavor, roasty caramel and dark candied fruit, balanced with earthy flowery hop bite. I really like this one. And at 9.2% abv, it is surprisingly smooth and not at all overpowering.
