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.

Emeister84 (1536) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Citrusy aromas, spicy, piney, caramel, floral, a vast hop bouquet supported by toasty, bready malts. Hazy deep orange with a somewhat lasting off-white head. A little sweet upfront followed by a burst of hop flavors and a spicy feel, some hints of creamy coconut like from a pina colada mixer. Medium bodied, pretty damn smooth.

airrick2003 (669) - Louisiana, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Appearance: the beer is a hazy yellow color, pours with a very large and dense beige head Aroma: caramel malt, pretty faint under all that thick head, milk Taste: alcohol warmth, strong bitterness throughout, citrus, very strong caramel malt base Palate: heavy mouthfeel, soft carbonation, bitter aftertaste Overall: a bit too much alcohol Taste for me, still pretty good balance of malt and hops, it's got lots of both, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jh773 (232) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 Canned on 3/30/15 - "Calm like a bomb". Slightly orange straw-yellow color, dense head about one finger thick. Aroma is sweet pineapple, mango and banana. Taste is complex with lots of tropical notes, plenty of rye spice and just a hint of savory garden vegetable flavor. Thick, slightly syrupy body. Good bittersweet finish, slightly oily palate. This one’s a winner.

vyvvy (4625) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 26, 2015
Pours clear golden with a large off-white head. The aroma has lots of sweet maltiness, Sorachi Ace lemony aspects, herbal hops and a pretty good amount of alcohol is present from the beginning. It has a pretty full body with a mild amount of carbonation, The taste is hoppier, but also has a lot more alcohol. The flavor starts with earthy/woody hops, dried crusty bread, caramel, lemony hops, lots of alcohol and a bit of pine. The finish has some grapefruit zest with hops, but the earthiness and lemon are way up front along with the alcohol.

Block (1676) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2015

EtTuCthulhu (1359) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 20, 2015
This beer pours a very clear golden color with a large white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma blends citrusy, resiny, and floral hops with some light biscuity malts, and the taste mildly sweet, slightly bitter, and a touch sour with a resiny and sweet aftertaste. The palate fuses a medium-light body, thick and creamy texture, and a soft carbonation.
