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%.

Tasted from a very stylish 12oz bottle, from Bullocks in Marietta, Georgia into a Willybecher glass. It poured an opaque black color with reddish tinged edges, huge rocky off-white foam, very long-lasting with lots and lots of Belgian lace. Really incredible appearance. Huge aromas too: citrusy and resiny American-style hops, bready malts, dark toast, coffee, cocoa nibs, roasted barley, fruity ale yeast esters, some black pepper. Perfectly balanced flavors: rich malt sweetness, profoundly tangy hops (but thankfully not overwhelmingly bitter), toasty, roasty and fruity. Medium body, strong carbonation, extremely complex, well-rounded mouthfeel. In my opinion, this recipe combines the very best aspects of a high-gravity black ale AND a double IPA. Almost unbelievably delicious, I really wish I’d brought more of this home to Missouri. C’mon distribution!

Deep brown almost black with a cream head. Nose is chocolate, chewy, sticky, and citrus. Chewy on the palate, chocolate, roasted malts, sticky finish.

Bottle I found in my beer fridge while doing a little tidying. Pours a deep black with a thin to medium sized white to beige head. A bit of roast behind a nice thick earthy hop pungency. Medium bodied, big earthy hops, a good amount of roast and chocolate. Cocoa, toast, roast, long sticky resinous citrus. Nice body and easy drinking.

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.
