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.

Clear light copper, white head. Nose is awesome garlic & mango, rich meaty (rotting?) strawberries, sweet caramel maltiness. Those are good things. Flavor is more garlic, tangerine, mango, super dank. This is huge & sticky sweet - the can was enjoyable but a lot to get through.

Terminus (3308) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 12, 2010
can-this 4 pack was VERY expensive, but i decided to guy one. pours clear bright orange with a small fizzy white head. nose is tropical, passionfruit, pineapple, pine, flowers, graperfruit-pretty standard IIPA aroma, but definately not a bad thing. flavors exhibit the pine/dry/gin like qualities more than the tropical/citrus i would have expected from the nose. long grapefruit rind/piney finish-very dry and bittering on the toungue. I dig this type of IIPA because of the dryness. alcohol is always present, which makes this one not at the top of the club. a solid and strong IIPA that is pretty much the epitome of the style.

aroma is sticky caramel that defies pale appearance: translucent lemon with spotty head and less lacing. elements of toast in malty aroma intensifies quickly. flavor is mellow grapefruit with crunchy toffee background. great malt character provides more then simple balance, ABV comes on quick, this is a neck snapper.

AmEricanbrew (6177) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Clear light amber color/ off white head. Big pine hop, skunked hop aromas. medium bodied/ light carb. Decent bitter pine, grapefruit, cat spray hop flavors on a solid pale malty base. A bit too hoppy bitter.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Can. Hazy golden orange, not such a great head and ends up looking flabby. Bright hops greet my nose, then some skunk and vegetal interference prevents it from smelling really great. Still a nice aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation, thick and a little oily but not bad. Tastes intensely green, lots of pine, herbs, and some lime rind. Pretty good.

SpringsLicker (3211) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 10, 2010
The pour is a deep orange that is mostly clear with a small fleeting white head. Citrus rind aroma and a nearby forest with damp pine forest nearby. Sweet, mango fruit flavor that somehow manages some dryness in the finish. Very fruity & juicy.

Gr0ve (2169) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2010
12 oz can. Amber colour. Clear. Medium-sized white head. Bold hoppy aroma. Grapefruit and grass. Very bitter on the tongue. The body is also quite substantial and the beer feels somewhat balanced, even though the bitterness is a little overpowering. Delicious beer, especially if you like hops.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Pours apricot, but like a lager, clear, 2 inch, lasting dome head.head is dense and a pleasure to look at all its own. Aroma is strong resinous hops and floral sweetness. A bit dank. The can may have hurt this one. Rhubarb, vegetable, just kinda foody overall. Medium body, light fizzy mouthfeel. Sort of delicious still in a weird kinda way.

Crit (3471) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2010
Orange amber,small beige head.Piney sour citrus nose.Big citrus hop profile,sweet malt mid.Quite unblended with harsh alcohol heat.Unpleasant. A poor offering from a good brewery

Hangover (1084) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Amber-golden pour with a nice white head. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruit, citrus and melon. Sticky, resinous hoppy mouthfeel. Nicely balanced with an equally flavorful malt presence... woodsy with heavy caramel. No hint of the high abv. Overall, this is extremely tasty and the malty sweetness really makes this one a quaffer. Dangerous in a can but delicious nonetheless.
