12 ounce can. Bright amber gold color. Big foamy beige head. Big citrus and pine hop aroma with a hint of butterscotch malt. Wow, a huge blast of lupilin love hits you upfront. Big and bold with notes of resiny and piney hops. There is a noticeable caramel malt backdrop here, as well. The complex hops produce a spicy tropical fruit mid taste. Finish is bitter with some noticeable alcohol. Aftertaste is intensely bitter. Outstanding!

Burk. En underbar arom möter din näsa o man bara njuter. Smaken härligt balanserad nästan lite krämig med fin fruktig lite söt smak. Eftersmaken går inte heller av för hackor. Ligger länge i munnen med en mycket bra o behaglig beska.

Keg at Brewdog Shepard’s bush. Translucent golden coloured pour with a thick lasting white head. Aroma is sticky resin, dank, musty orange and some alcohol. Flavour is biscuit and caramel malts with candied orange, pine and warming alcohol. Hides the abv pretty well with just a slight bite in the finish. Palate is smooth and resinous sticky. Fairly low bitterness with a fruity orange finish. Pretty drinkable for the abv.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy dark white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a spiderweb lacing. The almost non-existent aroma was mild malt and mild hop. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of vinous sweet crisp && clean caramel and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

With Gubna, Oskar Blues explores the full range of flavors an Imperial IPA can offer. Using several hop and malt varieties, Gubna’s taste profile is subject to change whenever the hell it wants. At the start, the ale tastes tropical with hop notes like pineapple and lemon. Gradually, the hops transition into a resinous, bitter tone with spruce, pine, and evergreen. Shortly after, the malt unveils a spicy, dry kick. The metamorphosis ends with caramel malt and sweet berry flavors from the hops. Best of all is the long warming feeling from the booze. Gubna is eclectic to the point of being bizarre but it’s a lot of fun to experience all that it has to offer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Citrus, pine.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Tropical citrus, piney, earthy, slightly bitter.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, warming finish.
O- This beer was not near as bitter as one could expect. The citrus tones are subtle but balance out the beer. The finish is surprisingly warm and peppery and ultimately makes this a good sipper.
