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%.

Awesome! Dark in flavor and color. Very pleasant combination of roasty and chocolate flavors with a touch of hop crispness. For being labeled as a black IPA, I think the flavor runs more to the porter side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color with small off-white head. Aroma and flavor or dominantly hoppy but with a strong malt presence as well. Tasted like a mix of IPA and porter. Very interesting balance and good price too

Dark brown, bubbly, medium small tan head. Aroma is extremely pleasant, pine and citrus hops with a background of roasted malts. Medium body. Alcohol is only present as a warming factor but does not intrude on the flavor. At first the flavor comes across as an above average IPA with nice floral and piney hops and then there is a roasted coffee-like malt component. One of the few of this style where this dynamic enhances everything rather than coming across as 2 styles mixed together for no purpose. Dry throughout. Quite drinkable too. This is a very good beer.

I have recently noticed a couple of beers by Uinta at my local grocery store. Picked this up in a 4-pack. $8.99 which is so/so for a price point, but you look at other 4-packs (ie. Green Flash $10.99) its no so bad. Pours a dark amber, almost black color with a creamy, thick tan head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Aroma of hops, roasted malt, doughy yeast and I do detect a little hemp once up to the nose. Taste is rather hoppy and bitter, with a roasted malt backbone. Smooth, creamy mouthful. Medium body, thats easy to drink. On the end, its bitter with a alcohol bite. Good beer and my 1st beer from Uinta, that I would buy again. Looking forward to trying others from this brewery.

Delightful! Dark thick pour from 12oz bottle, thin slight foam light in color. Bite of hops in an imperial Stout pour. Only knock is that its thin on the palate. Otherwise, excellent.

Not too bad. A little bitter for how dark it is. Looks like Coke and tastes like a mix between an IPA and tar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like spicy, resiny hops. Its black with little head retention. Tastes like spicy hops, hop resin, a spicy hemp seed note, a little warming from the alcohol but it is pretty well hidden. and OK palate some bubbly from the carbonation. Overall a good black ipa, nice and bitter

Aroma - Fresh, uncompromising citrus Appearance - Pours an onyx, with a pillowy off white head Taste - A delightful overwhelming hop intro, smooth and crisp in middle with a pleasant subtle roast and bitter finish. Palate - Smooth and fully encompassing mouthfeel Overall - One of my favorite CDAs available. Citrusy, drinks like an IIPA (as it should) but with a little more body to back it up,

Bottle pour black with purple highlight in the light. Nose of citrus hop. Citrus and fruit hop follow by decent bitterness. To me has the slight burnt roasted aftertaste common to black IPA.
