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.

jc1762 (642) - Washington DC, USA - APR 14, 2016
Poured into a shaker showing moderately filtered honey brown with half a finger of white foam. The nose shows moderately intense clean pineapple. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Flavors of light clean pineapple supported by a balanced malt backbone. Big sharp IIPA finish cleans it off but it’s a bit too big compared to the front end. Still a pretty good IIPA.

weihenweizen (3082) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2016
On tap at P&P Charleston. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is fruity, grapefruit hops, and herbal hop back bone.

beer-yum (1291) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 11, 2016
Citrus pine aroma in a golden amber pour. Laid back balance with a hop malt mix that manages to hide its strength. Problem is one would be tempted to have more than the body could take!

Gmku (300) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Excellent Double IPA. Slightly thin tasting at first but the palate thickens with each sip, and the flavors and aromas deepen. Resin, floral, some spruce, a good sort of farmyard hay malt backbone. In a word, yummy.

Great beer. Pours straw with a hint of orange. Thin but sticky head. Aroma of pineapple, orange and chrddar. Taste follows nose. Strange hops with a nice bitter back.

Mjp12 (1386) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2016 Poured from a can, big foamy white head, lots of hops, and yes, a slight cheese hint in the aroma. Very clean tasting, not as sweet as you would expect for its abv. Good hop finish.

rjplumer (984) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Mild orange tangerine aroma. Hazy burnt orange body with finger thick white head. Bitter blast balanced with a tangerine sweetness. Bold and warming going down.

Fin (9456) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
Can from Beer Gonzo webshop, Earlsdon, Coventry, consumed at Cliff House Campsite, Dunwich, Thursday Christmas Eve 24th December 2015 Pours mid to warm gold with a white head that slips elegantly down the side of the glass. Really thick in the mouth, you can tell this is a big beer. Cheesy bittersweet bite, oily mouthfeel, also the aroma is a little cheesy a damn good beer but one is enough. A7 A5 T8 P4 Ov15 3.9

Keg at Andrew Usher’s. Hazy orange body with a thick white cap. Thick lacing marks. Aroma of orange and golden syrup. Flavour of overripe pineapple and resin. Medium to thick body with a sticky mouthfeel. Light, prickly fizz. Surprisingly mild given the ABV.
