Ale brewed with Hemp seed.

Introducing the newest addition to Uinta Brewing Companys lineup, Dubhe (pronounced Doo-bee), an Imperial Black IPA.

Dubhe was named after Utahs 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 dippers spoon. The name Dubhe continues Uintas 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, Dubhes 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%.

Very nice overall , rich caramel with a deep pure cocoa flavor , sweet florals & fresh dough . At a 9.3 abv the alcohol rises up into the aroma of this black, clear, full bodied IPA with tan foam. Perfectly balanced sweetness & medium bitterness, creamy yet nicely carbonated and a long finish. A great sipping beer .

Very bold double ipa that pours pretty & smells great but Im not getting the black aspect. Dark pour w/ a beige head & plenty of lacing. The aroma contains an abundance of hops w/ some dark malt sprinkled in. The taste is overrun w/ the hop presence as the darker malts are barely present to ever so slightly knock some of the bigterness down. Its great for the true hopheads out there but just not quite my style!

Super sweet, nutty, and chocolate forward black ipa. It smells and tastes like a gigantic, delicious imperial stout but has a nice amount of citrus hoppiness that cuts through it. Its not as in your face as stone enjoy bys black ipa which was pretty much a citrus bomb but its really delicious and an interesting take. The roastiness and chocolate are much more predominate than the citrus but its still absolutely delicious. Theres a nice nuttiness also which is a really pleasant touch. Great beer from a great brewery. Cheers.

My personal favorite so far, truly everything you could ask for in a beer. Extreme yet perfectly balanced complexity. Pours deep dark brown, almost but not quite black. Minimal creamy tan head. Aroma is pine and coffee. Starts bitter, piney hops. Finishes dry and malty, a little chocolate but mostly coffee, and just the right alcohol bite. Outstanding combination, outstanding beer!!! Probably the best thing about living in Salt Lake City is I can buy these for $2.15 a bottle at the liquor store any day of the week, except Sunday (after all it is Utah, ya know??). To the rest of the beer drinking world, if you get a chance, try it. You wont be disappointed.

On draft. One fantastic Black IPA -- there is an absolute smorgasbord of flavor going on here, with lots of roasted dark malts and a bucket-load of hops. Its chocolatey and roasted; its piney and bitter; its a fantastically executed Black IPA.

Pours black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, roasted malts, coffee, tropical fruits, and some herbal hop notes. Taste is similar to the aroma. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, long, lingering finish. Overall, an outstanding black IPA that is very drinkable for over 9 % abv.
