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%.

Aroma: fruity, roasted, slight chocolate notes. Appearance: deep Amber color; brown head. Taste: malt, burnt coffee, bitter, first drink was hoppy with burnt flavors; finish was bitter with coffee and cocoa notes. Palate: smooth, silky, but light. Overall: good effort; like the beer. RateBeer member Buukwurm said it well, This beer really shines if allowed to warm moderately before drinking. #respectbeerbrethern

Pour from bottle in SLC airport. Pours black with light and short lived cream head. Quite delicious and complex... Notes of chocolate and pine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Charcoal, burnt hops, and water. It's not that this is a bad beer, it's just not the style I like. I hardly buy any IPAs anymore because they're just overly bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tessic (1132) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
This IPA poured a deep Amber colour with a rocky brown head. Scents include roasted malts and grass. First swig was quite hoppy with lots of delicious burnt flavours. Finish was bitter with delicious coffee and cocoa flavours lingering.

Buukwurm (42) - California, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Yeasty, doughy aroma with subtle earthiness. Deep brown, almost black in appearance. Medium amount of bitterness. Not as sweet as Stones Sublimely Self-righteous Black IPA (my reference). Medium body. Finish is bitter and long-lasting. This beer really shines if allowed to warm moderately before drinking

Hopmaestro (1568) - rebro, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
Backlog from lost & found notes: Aroma of roasted malts with a tropical cloak of exotic fruits. Taste is fruity and roasted, smooth hay and grass, slight chocolate notes. Leads into a lemon zesty finish with a pleasant bitterness. Very nice presentation of this style, not many out there who can really do it.
