COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Linnet (1269) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2015 Big fat malt backbone, citric, resinous, spicy sorachi ace, ABV noticable, but well integrated, amber colour, medium white head, medium bite for the style, noticably sweet and warming, aromatic and powerful. Fullbodied, average carbonation, warming finish. Not a fan of sorachi ace, but in this brew it Works rather well.

Oskar Blues Gubna has a thick, foamy, off-white head, a semi-clear, orange-gold appearance, bubble streams, and moderate lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, white bread, sugar, and mildly-piney hop resin. Taste is of an odd-and off-putting coconut, white bread, sugar, and strong, but not harsh, bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Oskar Blues Gubna finishes dry and surprisingly easy drinking. The alcohol is not picked up in the flavor, unless it is that odd coconut thing, but the drinker will feel the alcohol, about half-way through the can. I also notice the rye component, as I drank it down. RJT

Aroma is sweet, tropical fruit, malt, nice. Appearance is great, golden amber with a white head. Taste is great, very sweet fruits, floral, smooth. Mouthfeel is great, carbonation on point and no real hint of booze. Overall, I’m a huge fan of it.

Draft, 2015 edition. Gamboge in color, with a head white and dense as a bundle of cotton. Perfect clarity. Fruity-sweet nose blends stripe strawberry and cantaloupe with grass-sprinkled honey. Smells like a brunch-time fruit plate. The melon-like quality reappears in the flavor, but with a resinous, sugary addition: grapefruit peel, mango, candied lemon and dill. Malt is faint but present, carrying the fruit-forward blend on shortbread to a velvet-smooth finish. Paired with the creamy body -- this stuff is like whipped cream -- and gentle carbonation, the beer doesn’t so much leave the palate as dissolve into it. Hits of peppery spice, however, remind that this is an intensely bitter IPA with sharp pinches to the tongue. This is a vastly different beer than when it first hit the scene -- and a much better one.
