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.

Aroma is sweet, tropical fruit, malt, nice. Appearance is great, golden amber with a white head. Taste is great, very sweet fruits, floral, smooth. Mouthfeel is great, carbonation on point and no real hint of booze. Overall, I’m a huge fan of it.

Draft, 2015 edition. Gamboge in color, with a head white and dense as a bundle of cotton. Perfect clarity. Fruity-sweet nose blends stripe strawberry and cantaloupe with grass-sprinkled honey. Smells like a brunch-time fruit plate. The melon-like quality reappears in the flavor, but with a resinous, sugary addition: grapefruit peel, mango, candied lemon and dill. Malt is faint but present, carrying the fruit-forward blend on shortbread to a velvet-smooth finish. Paired with the creamy body -- this stuff is like whipped cream -- and gentle carbonation, the beer doesn’t so much leave the palate as dissolve into it. Hits of peppery spice, however, remind that this is an intensely bitter IPA with sharp pinches to the tongue. This is a vastly different beer than when it first hit the scene -- and a much better one.

El aroma es sabroso e intenso, fresco a la vez, pero desaparece rápidamente. Se perciben notas cítricas, principalmente piña, lima y naranja. Su color es dorado intenso, ligeramente turbia. Cuerpo ligero, carbonatacion media y corona de espuma abundante y de alta retención. En boca es cítrica y bien equilibrada. Al paladar es muy fácil de tomar. El equilibrio entre el dulzor de la malta y sus más de 100 IBU es excelente, tanto que el amargor no es agresivo en ningún momento. Las notas cítricas dominan, sin embargo el retrogusto es bastante herbal. Muy buena cerveza, que integra muy bien su amargor y esconde su potencia alcohólica.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste caramel, pine, earthy. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Nose is strong with the pine and citrus but light of dank or tropical. Very clear pale orange color with a large white head. Taste is immediately orange marmalade and sugar with a moderately firm bitterness. A very light and smooth alcohol warming is complimentary and a touch of pepper. Yum.

2015 release. 4 oz chilled pour into a cylindrical tasting glass from tap at the brewery’s taphouse. Fresh as can be! Super clear and dark yellow. Pleasant head with good retention. Fairly full bodied and creamy. Taste is very hop forward-- citrus and grapefruit with a kind of mulch/herb aftertaste. Lingers on the tongue. Very bitter with a dank nose. Kind of dirty tasting. Too dank and aggressive of a beer for me.

Dark orange pour, dense head. Smells of grapefruit and pineapple, maybe even peach and apricot. Mouth feel it’s dominated by booze and bitterness. Aftertaste of sweet fruit and hop notes.

Can. First time I've had this one. Semi-clear orange. Aroma is boozy peach juice. The taste adds green leafy hops with tropical fruit juice on the finish. Smooth yet, bitter boozy mouthfeel. Awesome! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
