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.

12 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet almost vegetal malts with an earthy stinkiness from the hops that is a touch metallic.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts with the same stinkiness (it is the smell personified) from the hops. Thereís a lot of bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, this beer is pretty strange. When I first had it on tap, it was much different and better. The hops were much fruitier and more resiny without the weird stinky earth notes (also described by people Iím with as "catty" and "armpit"). The last time I was there (Longmont location), it tasted the same on tap as it has in the bottles. I can only guess that thereís a difference in batches, and Iíve heard that Summit hops can be unusual and hit or miss. Itís very strange but I still kinda like it.

Thanks to exiled for sharing this beer. The beer pours a clear medium yellow color with a white head. The aroma is orange and pine hops at first, with some resiny and catty hops showing up as well. The flavor is similar but the catty hops are much more dominant. The bitterness is about medium and the alcohol is fairly well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice DIPA, but at the price this sells for, I wouldnít buy it again.

Can. A golden amber color with a laced white head. A strong hoppy pine aroma A dry, bitter liquid pine flavor with citrus and grapefruit. The malty balance is there but the hops power through this beer. I like it even if itís a little bit one sided.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2010
Can from afire- thanks bra! Well this was pungent alright! The aroma was not terrible just really odd, like a can of tennis balls (rubber and citrus). The palate was smooth and enjoyable with the abv keeping it balanced. The Summit hops although a spicy/citrus delight keeps the odd aroma in my nose. Iím an Oskar blues fan but this was a little funkafied for me.

Thanks to SeaBass for the share. A: Pours a pale golden yellow with a nice tall foamy cap. Good retention with some spotty lace. S: Bold hop aromas, very grassy with citrus notes as well. T: Biscuit malt, grassy green herbal hops. Fresh citrus and loads of resinous pine. Light alcohol in the finish. M: Medium in body, smooth, good carbonation. D: Good, loads of hops, more IPA like than DIPA.

vtafro (5267) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2010
Can. Orange pour with white head. Chewy pine aroma, with some clue of the 10 percent abv. Malty flavor with a ton of pine hop flavor and substantial warming.

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2010
Pours a slightly amber orange with thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma strong of resiny hops, slight citrus, and a nice spicy character. Flavor matches well with a bit of sweetness that I wasnít expecting. Decently heavy, but dry on the palate and makes for a nice drink, but the price is slightly disappointing.

JaBier (5928) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2010
Can shared by a friend. Clear gold pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma is grassy hops and a bit catty without much malt. Grassy hop flavor with a nice sweet malt balance and some citrus fruit on the back end.

highibus (758) - Vail, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2010
Pours a light copper with thin white head. Residual lacing is nice. Huge aroma of big grapefruit and pine. Medium to full bodied as it has a little higher viscosity. But not overbearing at all. Really nice beer.
