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.

Wonderful aroma, thick clumpy lacing. Taste is oranges and other citrus, a hint of cough syrup sweetness, with a smidge of alcohol warmth. Be careful, this one will sneak up on you.

Wow this is a surprising beer. Pours cloudy light orange. Cinnamon spice aroma, maybe a Bourbon flavor--stronger than expected because of the color.

Can @ home. Pours hazy golden with big and bubbly white head. Aroma is grassy. bread and citrus. Taste is a little bozzy and hoppy with mostly grapefruit. It’s sweet, full bodied and thick. The booziness continues and the hops turn into pine with and slight bitter earthy finish.

czar (5207) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
can - 2014 vintage - funked up sorachi et al. pours unclear bright golden with a tall creamy white head, excellent retention and very nice lacing. coconuty pineapple, danky citrus, peaches in syrup, fresh sweet lightly spicy breadiness, grass, pepper, warming alcohol - doesn’t feel that boozy, appreciable sweetness - honey and tasty golden corn syrup. light carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky, sweet and very fragrant coconut-piney-spicy-citrusy finish. much appreciated alongside my burger with the missus. never tasted previous vintages, but i’m guessing this is the most unique and should definitely be repeated!

A most excellent beer. Its smoothness belies the high ABV count. In growler from growlerguys at Bend OR

liquidhedonism (287) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2014
12 oz can from New Seasons Market in Hillsboro, OR. Surprising light in color. Aroma is floral, with strong hints of citrus and tropical fruits. It kind of reminds me of limoncello or Lemonheads candy. Mouthfeel is crisp, with a long, slightly bitter finish. Not a lot of residual sugars from the malt, which allows the hops to make a much brighter appearance. I have a very hard time believing that this is 10% ABV. Strange beer, but certainly delicious.
