Each year GUBNA takes on a personality of its own. We seek out the most exciting and best available hops from each individual season to create a potent and complex Imperial IPA. GUBNA is packed with Rye and North American Pale Malt and accented with Munich Malt to give a spicy and flavorful backbone to support loads of kettle hops driving the IBUs to triple digits.
** This beer will now feature different hops in the massive dry hop every year.
2015 - Features whole leaf Galena hops, plus Sorachi Ace and Columbus hops. Dry hopped with copious amounts of El Dorado, Comet and Chinook.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2010
Can from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a hazy deep gold with thick white head. Aroma of pine and citrus rind, fruity esters, malt. Flavor is spicy, malty, pine and citrus peel, plenty of alcohol heat. Mouth feel is heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall, this thing packs a punch. Better be a hop head to enjoy this.

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 26, 2010
Can. Color is gold, clear, small head that dissipates quicker than usual. Aroma of lemon, minty, spicy with a touch of grapefruit and pith. Flavor hits initially with a robust caramel-orange note, then moves nimbly into mint, kumquat, touch of pith. The smooth stickiness coats the mouth, lending a lingering minty hop-bitterness. A very satisfying strong hop finish, medium-dry. Good use of distinct hop varietals and bold flavor.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2010
24 karat pour produced a milky white head that left a spot or two of lacing. Aroma was lemongrass, herbal, floral, and caramel. Flavor is somewhat fruity...lots of grapefruit, mango, and papaya...and a natural sweetness that diminishes the sharp biting hops. Medium mouthfeel. A good beer, for sure, but not what I was hoping for.

thirdeye11 (5975) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2010
(12oz can thanks to mar canned on 4-15-10 very fresh!) bright yellow pour with constant film of bubbles. Nose of pine, grapefruit, oranges, very dank weed aromas, more so than any beer Iíve smelled previously. Taste of earth, dank weed, bong water, spicy hops, umami, grapefruit, with a nice citrus/bitter finish. Medium oily body. Alcohol becomes evident only on the finish.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2010
Tap at Three cellars. A strong, almost vegetal hop. Smelled somewhat spoiled. The taste was sweet and may with a strong vegetal spoiled hop flavor.

italianjohn (2805) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2010
Orange hazy golden pour off white head decent amount of lacing .... floral hoppy aroma and sweet malts .... taste of sweet malts and floral hops sessionable but does give a little of the abv off and pretty malty for a ipa .... just kind of one dimensional with the hop selection .... bitter hop finish ... a decent brew with a spicy kick .... enjoyed it something different in a imperial ipa

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2010
Pours a hazy orange with a moderate white fluffy head. Aroma is tons of citrus grapefruit. Flavor is much the same but with an alcohol burn being present. Rather sweet, but not completely overwhelming. The hops come through, but in a rather one-dimensional way. Finish is fine, and okay all in all. Just not quite worth the price.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - APR 24, 2010
Huge citrusy hop nose that is full of resin. Nice dark yellow color with lively carbonation and fluffy head. Flavor is very nice and as advertised: tons of hoppy bitterness with a pungent, funky note to the summit hops. For some reason it did become less exciting toward the finish -- I attributed this to the one-note hop character but that could be wrong. Still, intensely bitter and excellent demonstration of a drinkable hop-bomb.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2010 On tap at redlight redlight, filtered thruogh citra hops.

holy hoppiness, this is incredible! I donít know how much the randal is changing the original hop character, but this is like stuffing your mouth full of hops and then drinking a sweet ipa. Itís got a sweet pale malt foundation, but is as full of fresh hops as it can get. Malt sweetness and hop bitterness are balanced, but hop aroma and flavor is off the charts.

PorterPounder (7053) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz can. Hazy dark orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of faint cat urine, heavy spruce. Solid citrus flavor, slightly bitter, mellowed out by peach and nectarines and a back end of green tea. Thickish, rich mouthfeel. Overall, a solid entrant from Oskar Blues.
