Canned. Orangey pour with smallish white head. Lots of malts in this one with serious dry hops coming in at the back. Pretty good IIPA

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From my tasting notes: The beer poured a golden amber with a generous white head. I got a hint of onion in the aroma like I had heard, but more of a sweet onion with a base of sweet citrus and tropical fruit. The taste was a bitter hop monster that erupted in my mouth like biting into a grapefruit rind. The Gubna was big, bold and full of hop dominance with a blast of grapefruit and dank resinous hops. The rye malt gave the brew a spicy malt balance and a great lingering taste on my tongue. This had a very strong balanced bitterness that was delicious and surprisingly smooth and easy to drink. It got a little boozy as it warmed, but that’s to be expected with such a high ABV.

12 fl oz can. Pours a clear orangey amber colour, frothy foam white head leaving some lacing and aroma of caramel, mango tropical fruit, citrusy resin hop. Taste is malt caramel balanced against melon notes & grapefruit citrus hop bitterness, plus spicy warming alcohol. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry hoppy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

From a can. Pours cloudy dark orange with a frothy white head. Tastes sweet, lime raisins, dates, with hints of tobacco, alcohol, and some chocolate. Delicious complex flavor. Smells like dark fruits, some tobacco, some chocolate, and some caramel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dåse: Flot diset orange øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er meget maltet med en smule humle fra primært eksotisk islæt. Høj bitterhed der gør maltsødmen til at bære. Fin øl.

Nicely hopped beer, not overpowering but strong complimented by sweet caramel body and piney hop profile, odd buttery flavor to it all though.
