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.

Can at home. Pours a hazy golden with a lasting medium white head. Aroma is pineapple, apricot with a caramel sweetness. Taste is mango, pineapple, piney hop resin, slight citrus and dried apricot. Really juicy and sweet with a nice balancing bitterness, thoroughly enjoyed this.

Super strong apricot fruit nose with a prune taste on the back of the tongue. Complex palate with piney and fruity sweet tip and then waves of gentle, lingering, comforting, bitter tones.

{From notes}. Pours a slightly hazy, orange-gold color with smallish, near white head that has little retention. Too much alcohol on the taste, yet it is partially hidden in the nose. Plenty of hop aroma, a expected, with malt (rye?) in the background. Nice lasting hop finish Medium body This is a more piney than citrusy IPA, a characterization that often leads to a lower rating for me. The sensory impact of the high ABV doesn’t help either.

Enjoyed it. Good dry-hopped aroma. Pretty copper color with good head retention. Full body with nice carbonation. Big Flavors of pale malt and rye with a nice blend of spicy hops.

weordie (776) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Pours copper with a really fluffy head that lasts. Aroma is that lush malt aroma with a hint of hops. Some great malt flavours are met with a lemon accent that gives way to a mouth drying bitterness. Brilliant.

MaBeer1972 (1789) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Can from W&M Mansfield. Poured into a snifter. A murky golden amber with a frothy off white head. Strong and sweet aromas and flavor. Very heavy sticky body with notes of bitter pine, herbs and floral notes. Very muddled. Not very fresh tasting. Too sweet for my liking.

LLaurin (282) - Motala, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2015
Pours golden with a white head giving a rich nose with presence of rye. Taste with a lots of hops and some round bitterness with citric tones. Palate leaving it long lasting. Nice at the fireplace....

Bought by mistake -meant to grab G’Knight. I do enjoy dipa’s though, so no worries. This pours a deep gold with white cling. Aroma is tropical fruits and apricot. Flavor has a dankness and citrus to add to the tropical fruit notes. Not bad, but this is viscous stuff, and the lingering aftertaste is both bitter and dank. Really well-masked alcohol though.
