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.

JorisPPattyn (8202) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2015
Small to medium head over clear golden beer. Hops, fruity and citrussy, but rather fleetingly. Hint at saltiness/fish - DMS in high concentration? Sweet, spicy as in Christmas spices, with again that mineral touch. Quite slick, medium bodied. Weird! I really guess DMS.

Habanero (2941) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2015
Can. Pours clear anddeep golden with an average, lacing, white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, caramel and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture. and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA.

gad905 (198) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Draft at BD Brum, 8/5/14. Pours golden orange, white head. Aroma of lemon, caramel malt, some stone fruit, touch of tropical too. Unexpected. Tastes sweet with caramel but not twiggy, moderate bitterness, more stone fruit and tropical, touch of orange, some Summit onion character in there too. Boozy, lightish body, easy drinking for the abv. This one threw me, I think I need to try it again cos it wasn’t how I expected it to be. Just didn’t come together.

Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, Bottledog (£ 6 või 6,40), 355 ml purk. Valades kahvatult hele kuldkollane, õige pisut hägune. Vaht on valge ja tihe, püsiv, agaralt seintele kleepuv. Aroom... faghakmskamslöataaaaaaging hell!! Mõnuvärinad käivad mööda selgroogu üles-alla... See on hapu mandariin, valge sõstar (!!), vaarikas, ananass, männivaik, magus-hapukas-mõrkjas-vürtsine, alkoholisoe ja kange, ülivõimas lõhn! Ma tahaks selle lõhna kuhugi ära salvestada, taskusse panna. Soojenedes avaneb vürtsikus isegi mingi õõõrna piparkoogisusena. Juues on selgelt tunda (mitte just otseselt 10-protsendilist) kangust, kuid see kangus on ülimõnusasti kaetud kihi puuviljase pehmusega: üleüldse on jook oma tundelt võrratult pehme, vaid neelatades tungib esile linnaseline kurgukihelus ja täidlane, peaaegu leivase hapukuse ja vaiguse kibedusega võimas maitse, mis jääb pikalt suulakke ja kurgupärra väga mõnusal kombel vibelema. Kibedus tuleb rohkem esile umbes poole joogi läbides, ja oi kuidas see siis suus lahvatab, Jack Hammer oli selle kõrval minu mälu järgi üks leebe tibu. Jook on küll ausalt öeldes siuke magusamast magusama poole kiskuv, natuke veel, ja ütleks, et isegi lääge, kuid ometi on see magusus koosmõjus massiivse mõrksusega nii fantastiliselt nauditav... Üks paremaid asju, mida mu tajumeeled seni tundnud.

jsnicholas (311) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - NOV 29, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2015 Can (12oz $4): Golden with huge white creamy head that lasts and lasts. Lots of lacing. Mainly citrus aromas. Taste is somewhat sweet masking the bitterness. Carmel is quite evident. A bit of pineapple. Well balanced and well liked. Update (03/08/2015): Adjusting score (was 3.7 now 3.8)

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Can from ABC. Pours a gorgeous golden orange with a massive, frothy off-white head that sticks around and fantastic lacing. Smells of bread, floral, grass, pine, and citrus; a wonderfully light amalgam of each. Taste is bitter throughout with a long, creamy, extremely nice finish. The abv would have fooled me, because this is an extremely smooth IIPA. Acquire.
