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.

Strong fresh citrus and floral hop aroma. Cloudy light orange color with a large white head. Moderate bitterness that builds to strong bitterness in the finish and fading in the end.

halfonit (1324) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 19, 2010
I was lucky enough to get this can from Scottie of L-Knife, so first off I must say thanks to him for hooking me up with this IPA. Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is of florals up front, with some hops, grapefruit, tangerines, caramel, and some earthiness. Flavor is quite sweet (but in a pleasant way) for an IPA. There’s some booziness in there, hops, spices, tangerines, and malts. Leaves a sweet hop finish. Nice.

kassner (1549) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2010
This was a great beer as promised by the bartender at Mad Mex North Hills. Though the odor of hops was faint, the flavors were complex with delicate Exotic flowers, funky outstanding flavors, ascorbic acid, dates. Golden color small head and just a little lacing but Great

A combination of citrus, herbs, and resin combine to an aroma akin to a bouquet. Taste is quite nice, but just a bit too hoppy.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Can from Ledger’s. Yum! Pours a clear golden with minimal head. Nose is sharp, grassy hoppage. Flavor is bitter - not unlike the creamy bitter from Two Hearted. Finishes clean as can be.

Deep yellow color. Thick lacing. Very hopy grass nose. Taste is bitter and hoppy and grass like a good green tea. Very yumm!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Can.
Pours a glassy amber with a nice white head. Aroma is piercing pine and grapefruit. Flavor is tongue-curling grapefruit, orange peel, and pine, all with a malty backbone. Average mouthfeel. A great IIPA.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Can from Sam’s. Pours bright clear amber with lightly fizzy white head. Nose is pungent... grapefruit rind, burnt garlic, and green onions. Really super resiny, earthy, and also sweetly malty. A bit of a challenge, but I don’t hate it. I think the resin just overpowers the fruity goodness that I think is buried underneath. I keep thinking maybe there is a time and a place for a beer like this, but there are just so many other good IIPAs to be had. Tastes a bit less aggressive, but massively sweet. Palate feels heavy and sticky. I’m trying to like this beer but just not really feeling it.

malrubius (2588) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 15, 2010
12 ounce can from Superstar Huntington in pint glass. Hazy golden orange with dense rocky head and lace. Pungent grapefruit orange citrus and bready aroma with hint of alcohol warmth. Fruity sweet grapefruit and orange with some crackery biscuit and woody earthy assertive hop bitterness in lingering bitter finish. Heavy mouthfeel but not quite syrupy. Very complex. I consider this to be a real, no-holds-barred version of a true double/imperial IPA. It is well-done, very composed, not messy, yet still a little bit much for me.
