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.

At least now I know that I canít stand a beer brewed with only summit hops. Thatís the only positive thing I can say about this beer. Itís definitely not for me.

mcberko (14665) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2010
12 oz. can, pours hazy, creamy golden orange with a small white head. Huge grassy and citrusy hops aroma upfront, with caramel and grapefruit as well. Flavour has a ton going on - spices, citrus hops, grass, caramel malts, dominant grapefruit towards the end, with that spiciness and bitter citrusy hops finishing. A tremendous barrage of hops - excellent.

Can. Aroma of grass, caramel malt, earth. Orange to light amber color with lace. Sweet and fruity flavor, boozy, hot, with a peppery finish. Soft, light, silky mouth. Quite sweet and boozy. Ok.

bierslaaf (105) - Somerset West, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 18, 2010
Big beer with citrus aroma and lots of malt to balance the hop. Chewy and some alcohol warmth. Lasting Malty finish.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Can. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a thin layer of oily head. The aroma is a potent blend of cannabis, tropical fruit and citrusy hops. The flavor starts with strong tangerine citrus and resinous hops flavors followed by dried pineapple, caramel, orange rind and pine resin. The alcohol is very aggressive and almost overpowers all the other flavors toward the end of each sip. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and syrupy with a bitter, citrusy finish. The overall flavor is intensely bitter and borderline acidic with lots of tropical fruit and alcohol. Not bad but it definitely could have used more malt to balance things out.

matty (365) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2010
On draft from a growler. Pours a golden amber with a nice white head that disipates slowly. Grapefruit/citrus aroma punches you in the nose. Very hoppy flavor nicely balanced with malt. Alcohol taste in the finish. Very good example of an Imperial IPA. Will definitely look for this one in the future.

On tap at The Belvidere at Broad on 03/30/2010. Hazy orange body with a large rocky tan head. Big citrus and resiny hop aroma. Big citrus, resiny and simcoe flavor with a sweet pale malt background. Medium full body with moderate carbonation.

bbbeer (745) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Yellow-orange with small head. Aroma with vegetal-type hops. Full body, donít notice alcohol up front but there after a few sips. Bitter hops, mostly grassy with minor citrus and soapy flavors. I donít know, thereís nothing off or poorly made about it but just not my favorite.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2015 Whoa. Hellooooo senses. Hop grenade indeed. If Gordon is technically an imperial red, this is their true IIPA, and damn is it good. the aroma is just about perfection. citrusy juicy hops in every layer. the spiciness lets you beleive there is a hop complexity that really isnít there, as this aspect is from the malts. smooth and drinkable, although at 10% it doesnít exactly sneak up on you, but the citrus/spicy/sweet aspects due more than enough to distract from the alcohol. excellent beer! weíll have this bad boy going head to head with a fresh gordon when we can find one. another winner from OB." Older batches better (4.5) hasnít been better than 4.2-3 for a couple years now (12/15)

Sweet malt and resin on the nose. Gold/orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Sweet malt with a medium bitter resin finish. Medium/full bodied with smooth carbonation. Very nice beer.
