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.

Can to snifter. Pours gold with off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, resin, booze. Flavor is resiny, piney, sharp citrus, astringent. A fairly good imperial, nothing very noteworthy to me though.

neongolden (754) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2015
(355ml can from Systembolaget, data 05/01/15) Pours clear dark gold with a fluffy short lived white head and no lace. Aroma is papaya, apricot, cedar foliage, grapefruit, lemon zest, light caramel and spicy malts, hint of coconut. On the palate, lightly sweet with peach, pineapple, papaya, grapefruit and that funny slightly buttery coconut Sorachi Ace quality. Hops kick in bitterness in the middle though, with a leafy character that has fresh pine and cedar and a menthol buzz to it, and a little citrus peel. Finish dry, moderately bitter, softly clinging to the mouth. Medium bodied and slick with average carb and very little alcohol heat. An interesting fruit + leaf hop character here, perhaps not my favourite but good for variety. Quite clean and easy on the finish, doesn’t drink its weight. Nice one, though it might have a bigger hit fresh.

alkolas510 (874) - Vänersborg, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2015
Pilsnerfärgad med litet vit skum. Doftar och smakar maltigt och spritigt. Vart är humlen?? Väldigt mycket alkohol i smaken. Riktig besvikelse!

Lawger (231) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2015
Canning date: 05/01/15 (just over 2 months old). Pours clear gold with white head, looks like a macro lager in the glass. Extremely fruity aroma. Peaches, plums, mango, candied papaya, a hint of pine resin and some fir honey. Rather full bodied for an IPA, balanced sweetness, the bitterness is rather restrained, but the finish is quite impressive non the less.

Burk 35 cl systembolaget. Gyllengul klar vätska med beiget skum. Frisk och fuktig doft av färska humlelottar och gräs. Kraftfull smak med med barr, grape och hö. Aningen söt med en värmande touch av alkohol och bra tryck i beskan
