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%.

Bottle, dated 4/16/12. Appearance: beautiful ruby dark brown with tight but frothy off white head quickly dissipating. Aroma: fruity hop bomb up front, really pineapple comes thru strongest with bits of pine, molasses, licorice. Taste: nice floral hops at start with roasted malts and hop bitterness coming thru in the middle then ending with licorice and some coffee and sort of peppery bitterness lingering. Mouthfeel: medium slick body with light to medium carbonation. Overall: very impressed with this beer. Very well balanced between roasted malt and floral/citrusy/bitter hop. Hides the alcohol very well.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Bottle. Pours clear, nearly black with a small tan head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Grapefruit aroma, with a bit of anise and roasted malt. Flavor is slightly maltier than nose, with roasted, chocolate flavors, but dominated by citrus. Bitter finish. Rather full and creamy mouth.

Spicy with just a small amount of citrus, this pours dark with a giant off white head. Can’t pick up the dark malts in the aroma but they’re there in the finish. Nice use of hops here. No piney hops as typical in some IPAs. A better brew than expected.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2012
12oz bottled April 16, 2012. Served at around 40F.

Pours dark brown with red highlights under light with a two finger creamy light brown head that leaves nice rings of sticky, drippy lacing. Purty.

Aroma starts off hoppy, mostly citrus, some floral and pine as well. Then the dark malts start to come through with notes of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel, toffee nuts, and maybe a bit of anise and weed. Very good strength.

Flavor is really nice. Good amount of citrus and resinous hops and the dark malt come through really nice. A lot of chocolate and caramel notes, some coffee, toffee, molasses, black licorice. A touch of sweetness in the middle, finishes with a good amount of bitterness. Alcohol is there but integrated well for over 9%.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, creamy, good carbonation.

Really tasty Black IPA. Tons of flavor and balances the hops and dark malts very well. One of the best I’ve had in the style.

blipp (6722) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Piney and floral hops with lightly roasted malts. The flavor has spicy and piney hops, with lighter flowery notes and lightly roasted malt. Good stuff.

phaleslu (7363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2012
12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip at Public House in the Venetian. Pours a deep, opaque brown but I’m seeing amber spots where light hits it, so it’s not totally black. Small beige head. Aroma of citrusy hops, chocolate, pine resin, and cream- a little restrained for an imperial but balanced and smooth. Flavor of piney and citrusy hops, caramel and chocolate malts, tobacco, grapefruit peel- has the bitterness the aroma subdues. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, resinous mouthfeel.

A dark beer bursting with a variety of hops. A bit of a sharp flavor and a lingering aftertaste. -The Djinn

pours dark, dark brown, nearly black with thick tan lacing. Big dark chocolate aroma with a coffee note. Palate is big, and round with heavy malts on the mid-palate and a bitter coffee finish. Very bold; sticks with you.

tron3000atl (72) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2012
The Dubhe is wonderful. Has a heavy citrus aroma and is black as oil. Incredibly smooth and no alcohol detected. Hoppy, funky citrus up front and finishes smoothly into a dark chocolate roasted sweet hemp seed taste that carries deep. This shit is up there on my list.

fiveacestx (722) - Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Pours dark with a coffee colored head. Has a roasted malt coffee taste to it. I didn’t really detect the typical IPA presence in this one but very good nonetheless. Has a creamy mouthfeel.
