3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured a ruby red color with a small off white head. Aroma was lots of piney resinous hops. Flavor was very sweet in the forefront, followed by a huge piney hop presence, but then unfortunately followed up by a strange onion and garlic taste that everyone is talking about. Just hard to get through a whole glass.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Resinous piney hoppy aroma with some earthy notes. The flavor is piney and earthy with some malty sweetness. A bit over the top, good but not great.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Oskar Blues, Lyons. Slightly hazy golden/amber with a creamy head. Huge hop aroma of pine citrus and lots of floral notes with some malty scents. The bitterness hits you right away and lingers throughout but the sweetness from the malt keeps the bitterness from being too abrasive. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry finish. Light alcohol taste. This one is good but a palate wrecker and it would be hard to drink more than one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. A large off white head on a clear orange body. Aroma is mostly pine, some mango fruitiness, a bit of mild onion in there as well. Taste is sweet and bitter with the bitterness winning out. Flavor is pine, some grapefruit pith, nondescript sweetness. Bitterness is a little harsh at times. Medium body and mild carbonation. Alcohol is very well concealed. Finishes clean and bitter. Okay but Iím glad it was a single can purchase.

355 mL can. Huge pine, lemon, alcohol and brown sugar in the aroma. Very distinctive. The pine is crazy big. The flavour has lots of stuff going on, ever evolving as it warms. It goes from all pine, alcohol and bittersweet citrus, to toasted caramel and grapefruit, to peach and grapefruit. Lingering, bitter finish. Medium-full body, and medium-low carbonation. Very distinctive brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can.. Clear, dark orange body with a decent off-white head. Aroma is strong and quite unusually, dominated by pine and sweet malt, also some grapefruit, flowers and onion. Flavor is sweet, quite bitter and the same strange fruit flavor with pine, onion, citrus and liver paste. Interesting, unusually but too sweet and the summit hops might not be my favorite.

Since I canít get my Captain Lawrence here in Tucson (yet) I will be drinking Gubna... Unless I run out of money. The only negative is that it costs you $$$$. But what the hey? Live my bruthas live!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Solid pour with good lacing, deeper copper amber color. Sturdy pined out hops presence to both smell and taste. Body a tad thinner in spectrum with a focus on the heady hop backbone, little in the way of balance and structure. A Stickier beer, good for tooth coating stickiness and medicinal alcohol warmth. Solid brew and good example of the style.
