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%.

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

Aroma is chocolate, coffee, caramel notes, and hops. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, and light lasting bitter finish. Drinks more like a stout than a black DIPA.

1" tan thick foamy head, medium lasting with moderate lacing. Black liquid. Aroma of roasted malt and strong hops. Aroma matches the taste plus nutty tones and with dry finish. Moderate body palate and moderately warm finish. Goes great with grilled lamb burgers. Will have the whole 4-pack, but please don't call me tomorrow! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grass and pine on the nose. I like very few spiced or flavored beers, but this is how you do it! If the hemp adds anything it is a rich hoppy grass and pine flavor. The strong hop notes are insanely well balanced to the point of being subdued. Complex flavors of hops and malts linger for ever on the tongue. This will be a staple in my cellar from now on.

From bottle. Coffee color, with dark tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, espresso, and potent grapefruit. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate truffle, citrus and grapefruit hops. A good blend of hoppiness and roasted dark notes.

Bottle - pours pitch black with thick tan head. Nose of strong piney hop, floral components. Smooth and foamy mouthfeel. Taste is of syrupy hop, pine, and malty but dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A big delicious juicy beer. Aroma was actually disappointing. Very green and hoppy but faint and one dimensional. Pour was a beautiful deep dark brown/near black with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was outstanding. A little hot and alcoholic, but a superb mix of strong citrus and piney hops with a heavy malt backbone. Tastes like someone spilled an imperial stout into an IIPA. Nice carbonation. Solid

Black brew, beige head with nice lacing. Sharp bitterness form both the roast grains and hops. Hops dominate the aroma, and most of the taste. It’s hard to determine if this a black IPA or an imperial, but who cares. It’s really good!

decaturstevo (4664) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Brown/red pour with light tan head and lace. Aroma is roasted malt, bread and resiny hops. Light syrupy sweet malt start with a bit of a harsh bitter finish with nice abv warmth. Thin bodied and a tad fizzy. but still ok

Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a medium java head. Nose is deep hops with a predominance of grapefruit, and finishes with pine and resin. Taste is bitter, hoppy and citrusy with deep pine and resin. Alcohol is easily appreciated along with some malty notes as well. Finish is bitter with moderate to long lingering taste, Nice. Quaff Score 7 / 10
