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%.

Thick, dark, dank. Lots of roast and toast on the nose, hints of coffee. Flavor is beaming with roasty goodness, coffee, hints of dark cocoa, grains, and polite burnt flavors, all meshed together into a sweet milk chocolate creamy palate wash. Lots of hops to bring up the finish and keep the bitter lingering. Really enjoyed this one!

Pint. Pours a very dark brown with a creamy tan head that laces throughout the pint. A sweet, malted chocolate ball aroma, this beer is smooth and pillowy, with plenty of chocolate and coffee notes to pair with the hop bite. The hemp provides a subtle nuttiness as well. This beer is a little on the heavy side, but all and all, very good beer.

From tap at hopping pig. Pours dark brown with a deep amber galre and a small tan head. Aroma is toasted malty and caramelish. Wooden, dark malty, vanilla and solid hoppy. Bitter and dry finish.

@Akkurat: stort elegant skum. Doften är mycket humlerik, smaken är mycket stor och besk med tydligt rostade toner. Lång humlebesk eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours nearly black with a little ruby brown color coming through and a real nice thick brown head. aroma is roasted chocolate malts with some citrus hops coming through. taste is a big malt bomb with generous amounts of hops. absolutely perfect rendition of a great style of beer. had no idea this thing was at 9% abv i guess because it’s so well hidden. highly recommended

Decent dark IPA stye. Pours a foamy cream head and black body. Starts with a hoppy bite, primarily a resinous profile, moves into liquorice and roasted dark malt notes. Ends with fermenty booze flavors.

Poured the beer and loved the aroma and look, so I was very excited to have a taste. It was very strong, and lacked the "IPA" taste I was expecting, leaving me slightly disappointed, but I can see how it would be appealing to someone who appreciated bold taste.

Pours deep dark brown with a bit of red in the light. Aroma is hops, malt, some pine. Taste is bitter at first with a sweeter boozy finish.

Deep dark brown coloured body with a touch of a cola glow near the bottom of the glass, with a nice three centimetre tall thick tan or light brown head. Aroma of nice hops, metal, roasted malt, toffee and a bit of pine and grapefruit. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep roasty malt up front with a lot of good piney and herbal hop notes, with quite a bit of caramelised sugars and a strong and rich alcohol flavour at the tail end. Aftertaste is strong and very complex with everything from roasted malt to unfinished sugars to alcohol to piney hops and everything in between. Overall, a very well done beer and a first for me - a great concept without being overly coy or inventive with styles/flavours - definitely worth trying if you can get your hands on a bottle. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Olive Tree Market Place in San Diego, California for US$2.49 on 01-May-2012 sampled at home in Washington on 12-July-2012.
