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%.

Nice color and crown. Fresh aroma containing citrus, honney, and toffee. Sweet licorice dominates the flavor palate. A more bitter licorice taste appears afterwards. Some hints of tar also.

Decent fruity aroma. The taste is lightly hopped but mostly bitter with small hints of dark chocolate. Nice bitterness that fills the mouth a long time. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Draft at the Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter. Pours very dark with a small off-white head. Decent lacing. Powerful roasted aroma with dankness, pine, weed, and soy. Taste is also bold with serious roasted malts, pine, pine resin, weed, and a dank finish. Medium body, slight bitter and roasty finish. Serious good black IPA.
