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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Why am I not shocked this was good? A golden color with a laced white head. A strong hoppy pine aroma with bitter pine flavor of citrus and grapefruit. Pretty balanced with a malty sweet body and huge hop flavor.. Kind of reminds me of port brewing IPAís off the tap. Got to love those hops!!!!!
