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.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Can. Pours clear dark gold with a half finger off-white head. The nose is ripe citrus, hops, ganja oils and malt. The taste is caramel, ripe tangerines, orange peel and a mellow tart grapefruit finish that lingers for a few minutes. Medium mouthfeel. Nice stuff. Smells just like weed.

petematte46 (330) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2010
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!!!!!

ben4321 (4778) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2010 Location: 12 oz can at Bierkraft, 5/30/10

Aroma: The nose is floral hops, some citrus, some malty notes
Appearance: A mostly clear golden-orange color with streaky lace
Flavor: The taste has a nice balance, leaning bitter, but moderate (plus) sweet as well
Palate: It has a medium texture, an oily feel, and a long duration
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid IIPA, another very good beer from the Oskar Blues guys. Ripe and hoppy.

Leafs93 (1883) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Thanks to Chalsk for the can. Pours a hazy orange with decent but quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is grapefruit and resin, some alcohol there as well. Taste is sweet with a nice bitter finish. Nice warming on the finish. Solid.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Can pours a hazy golden amber body with a small bone white head. Scattered lace is left on the glass. Aroma is sharp and pungent, with grassy, earthy, and herbal traits. I donít pick up any citrus notes but I do sense an odd note that is like wild onions. Really sharp on the palate. This one seems almost medicinal, and a sensation like biting into raw ginger takes your breath. Finishes dry, earthy, coarse, and raw. The Summit hops just donít work for me here. Interesting expereince from a brewery I like, but this one comes off as coarse and unsophisticated.

brenn79 (1725) - Idaho, USA - MAY 29, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 12 oz. can- Pours golden with a nice creamy head, aroma is piney hops and alcohol. The flavor tastes like a fresh hop ale that is amped up to Imperial status, very different and strong resinous flavors, somewhat overwhelming. Not for everyone, but I liked it.

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - MAY 29, 2010
This was the most expensive beer that Iíve ever bought out of a can, so I was glad that it was also the BEST beer that Iíve had from a can. Pours a clear dark yellow with a white head that leaves good lacing. Smells like BOOZE! and has a sweet floral scent from the hops. This one is balance PERFECTLY! Itís got a lovely sweetness to balance out those hops, and is very drinkable, which is dangerous when this beer weighs in at 10%. YUMMY IN MY TUMMY!

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2010
From can. The pine fumes from this one make me smile from immediate pour. Smells like a Douglas Fir in a glass. Pours a copper hue with decent head. This one is all imperial IPA and I love it. The Gordon Ale has too much caramel malt for this hophead. Gubna is right on the money! I would buy this regularly if available. At 10% you donít need much. Delicious. To get full effect though pour from can and swoosh a bit to open up the pine citrus tones. Scrumptious.
