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%.

Anova167 (297) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - APR 4, 2012
UPDATED: APR 10, 2012 Pitch black pour. Aroma of citrus and dank hops. Massively hoppy for how roasty it looks. Flavor is much more roasty than the aroma with a very bitter hoppy citrus finish.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle. Dark burgundy with fair brown head. Strong citrus aroma is shocking and surprising on such a dark beer. Nice dark malt flavour with lots of citrus and coffee and woody overtones.

mcmisko (352) - New York, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours dark brown with tan head. Smells toast and floral. Taste is brown sugar, roasted malts, dark fruits, soy sauce, and ample hops. Texture is smooth. Carbonation low. Med body. After taste is dry and slightly bitter with some hints of dark notes.

This this bottle is skunked or something. I can tell what this should be, aroma is nice: grapefruit fading to roast coffee and sweet malts. Really had me excited. But this is crazy bitter and not just in a hop bomb way (which, for the record I drink a lot of). Dank doesn’t begin to describe it. There’s some dark roast coffee notes in their too, but I can’t get past it. I hope I got a bad bottle, but I won’t be coming back for more. What I can get from it reminds me of Stone’s awesome recent collab More Brown than Black IPA but this beer falls way short of that mark.

Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 30, 2012
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Dark pour, no head. Citrusy aroma. Roasty, of course, with coffee and ash. Really holly with a lot of citrus. I’m not a huge fan of the style, but this one is pretty good.

5oz draught sampler @ Flaming Grill in Sac. Nice roastiness, slightly boozy, muted hoppiness.

From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a fair amount of head. Strong malty sweet flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

Pours dark brown with reddish tinge that is translucent. Large slightly red head with beautiful lacing after the foam settles. Bitter grapefruit and pine hops. Moderate malt backbone with hints of caramel and toasted grains. Very bitter. Moderate to thick palate with moderate carbonation. Long, bitter finish. Good beer. Not much on the malt side of the flavors, but I like it. Addendum: After reviewing the description, I do agree with the coffee aroma and perhaps with a subtle licorice, but that may be a stretch on my senses.

arminjewell (6433) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Pour is dark brownish black with thin tan head, aroma has notes of big piney dank notes, hints of grapefruit, biscuit, toffee, caramel, touch of slighty mineral and a seedy note with a slight earthy dirty note...maybe the hemp seed? Taste was a nice mix of dark fruit, slight hemp earth notes, hints of grapefruit, orange, touch of pine, hints of roast, finishing pretty bitter. Way more on the IPA end than dark brew end.

sonnycheeba (3746) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, creamy beige head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, earthy hops, oak, figs, and black pepper. Flavor is heavy hops, average malt, and faint fruit esters; dry, hoppy finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.
