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.

Vignale (2543) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
Burk från SB 2015. EN kompetent välgjord klassisk DIPA som tyvärr inte är superfärsk när den når SB. Det gör att den specifika humlemixen är svår att urskilja. Men balans och tryck i beskan är det inget fel på. Smarrigt.

Pours as clear as they come, orange, slightly darker than your average IPA. The aroma fills the room and putting ones nose to it is a experience! Mandarin Citrus in abundance, very sweet aroma. Taste is the same with the added dankness and heavy bitterness that makes it an IIPA. No alcohol whatsoever on the taste, some slight warming going down the throat. 2015 version, probably one of the best Imperials i have ever had. Wondrous beer! Bottle from SB

MrHult (444) - SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2015
Burk från Systembolaget. Klar guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Härlig doft som går åt mango/persika. Kraftig tung dricka, känns att den är stark utan att bli spritig. Söt med söt beska i eftersmaken.

12oz can. Der tar dags! Deep gold, white head. Hoppy, fruity, resiny aroma, spruce, caramel, apricot, bergamot, marmalade, orange peel, grass. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness, creamy CO2. Hoppy, resiny taste, spruce, bergamot, citrus, marmalade, grass, apricot. Very rich, yet still foolishly drinkable. (2015-07-16)

Saeglopur (1055) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 13, 2015
355 ml canned 05/01/15, shared by Werckmeister, thanks a lot!
Bright amber-orange, moderate hazy body, with a medium, creamy, slightly yellow head.
Aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine, peach, biscuit.
Tastes of grapefruit, pine, resin, peach, orange, biscuit, honey, some tea.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a quite lively caebonation.
Finishes bitter, quite dry, zesty, piney, fruity, sweet malty.

Tasty. A straight and greatly balanced IIPA, with the typical, lovely, resinous grapefruit and pine notes, balanced by a smooth, sweet malt backbone. Not the most complex IPA, but really nice and surprisingly drinkable for the ABV.
