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%.

Wow. What a malt profile, a little of everything layered on top the other. Complex, choco, coffee, roasted malt, a little nuttyness. The hops are big enough to shine through and get some good bittering and aroma out. Color is super dark red black. Palate is saturated but works well leaves a hint of choco-coffee. Overall taste is hop bitter, dark fruit, roasty malt, Good stuff

Poured from 12oz bottle into a globe glass. Black with a sizable tan head. Aroma is a lot of citrus and resinous hops with some roasted malt. Flavor has significant hop notes along with a nice roasty malt base. The hoppiness and alcohol presence definitely supports the Imperial Black IPA style. Medium bodied and fairly dry. Overall this is an excellent Black IPA with some very bold features.

This is my favorite style of beer and my first bottle of this years batch. Bottled on 5/23/12, so fairly fresh still, the hops seem a little chewier than last year. Hopefully I just got a bottle that was warmed accidentally. Crisp still with juniper and anise floral notes. Bitter bite floats above the soft roast malt with light caramel and chocolate, not too sweet. Judging from my experience with last years stash, this should age very well.

A tiny beige sheet covers the close to black pour that is totally clear. Fairly green, resinous, citrusy hop profile dominates the aroma in which subtler dark chocolate and licorice notes manage to shine. Feeling rather dry, both torrefied and hoppy in mouth, which rhymes with a strong bitterness that cleanses the palate out. The burnt grain character feels a bit exotic, but surprisingly not all that thick for a 9%+ ale. A bit straightforward in fact and not particularly captivating in the hop department, but perhaps that is due to subpar freshness? I cant tell as I see no date on the bottle, but it was bought two months ago.

Woah! Crazy hop bomb with HUGE malt backbone. Wow - everything is big here - even the alcohol presence. This is overkill in every way, but it doesnt really feel undrinkable - more like something big to save for special occasions. I wonder if aging might improve the monster flavors.

Tap at Freakin Frog in Vegas. Dark brown pour with a big frothy cream head. Aroma and taste of bright citrus hop and malty chocolate. Very good.

Thin head dark. Light aroma. Strong bitter, but not a hops bitter. More like a grass bitter. Overall main theme is a burnt flavor. Not bad, but I wouldnt be proud of it.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Pours black with a big fluffy off-tan head. Aroma is citrus, spicy, earthy, fruity, very crisp. Taste is surprisingly mild with a subtle bitter alcohol aftertaste. Bitter, juniper, hoppy citrus, dark chocolate, nutty, creamy, a touch of licorice. Really clean mouth feel. Some lacing. Interesting; not as malty as I like my beers of this style. I wont be buying a 4-pack but I would definitely order one in a bar.

Dark. Very bitter, but balanced. Flowery. Hard wood. This is a very solid beer. Very bitter, but incredibly drinkable.
