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.

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.

Beerdrinker79 (1773) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (7565) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2010
On tap at Brass Tap. Pours clear gold with copper hues and light tan head. The aroma is rich inviting sweet citrus goodness blending with a modest level of resiny grassy pine hops and a firm malt sweetness. The taste is full rich sweetness like the nose with loads of sweet citrus hop flavor backed by malt sweetness moving quickly into citrus and pine hop bitterness. All along and into the finish malt sweetness provides a pleasing balance to the load of hops. Fresh, crisp and very nice.

nearbeer (4291) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2010 Can. Clear amber-orange with a small film of bubbles. Nose is acrid pine oil and white pepper, with some light pineapple and grapefruit. Flavor is pineapple, peppery rye, resin, minty citrus and light honeycomb. Medium body is smooth and tongue tingly. Well-hidden alcohol but a bit too much rye for me.

JohnnyJ (4992) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Can. Pours an amber color, with off-white head. Stale earthy malts, candy sweetness, small amounts of tropical fruit, herbal hops, and bitterness. I didnít like this too much, at the most this is quite marginal.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Can; canned 3/26/10. Pours orange and amber-colored with a small beige head. Smells like a fresh pine grove, with citrus rind, juniper, ground black pepper, and some caramel malt and funky papaya. Initial flavor is sweet cane sugar and slight pine, fading to bitter grapefruit rind, alcohol, and sour citrus. Creamy, warming, slick mouthfeel. Brown sugar and tart ethanol finish. I wasnít sold at first, but each successive sip is better than the last. Iím not sure I get the full 100 IBUs, as this has a large malt backbone. Iím enjoying this very much.
