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.

kwerikson (178) - burlington, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
pours out a gold producing a 2 finger thick off white frothy head that fell at a pretty slow rate. the body is a hazy pale orange with some co2 present. the aromas are pungent, a little spicy, malty, hoppy, skunky, and yeasty. theres also some citrus and or lemon present. it is medium bodied and starts out malty with a hop storm right behind the initial finish. the mouthfeel is creamy, and it finishes creamy. its really balanced and pretty enjoyable. not a bad beer and very refreshing.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Clear amber brown pour with a one finger off white head. The aroma is bursting with tropical fruit- mango, pineapple, papaya, guava, citrus, and herbal resin. The flavor is hugely dank and far more resinous that the aroma would suggest. Tons of herbal grass, evergreen, orange citrus, caramel-toffee, and the overarching palate scorching resin. The palate is thick for the style with excellent body, caressing effervescence, and a smooth resinous smacking sticky finish. Delicious.

Clear orange-amber pour with a smallish white head. Aroma holds tons of mango, pineapple, orange, and guava; just massive amounts of fruity hop character. Also some herbal notes, perhaps tarragon or mint. A touch of earthiness is in the background as well. Flavor is wayyy more resinous than the aroma; lots of pine sap, spruce, and freshly cut grass that cuts out a lot of the lighter fruit notes, leaving mostly citrus. Herbal and floral characteristics are present as well, with nice caramel malt balancing out the hops. Palate is sticky and smacking, but glides down smoothly. Damn good DIPA; another great beer from Oskar Blues.

Tejas (920) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Huge white head. Looked lighter than I expected. Wow! Never had a beer that taste this fresh/green and grassy. Reminds me of a fresh cut lawn. So much so that the first sip kinda knocks ya back. Even the next day when I opened another and knew what to expect it still stopped me. Now, thatís not a terrible thing, especially on an IIPA just had to adjust a bit and after the first sip and my tongue was strapped down for another swig everything was a-ok. Good beer!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Can:   Amberish, a little fiery, very clear, pour was rather viscous, little head, sparce lacing, very light carbonation.   Resiny nose, sweet hoppy rind as well.   Some alcohol is noticeable.   Very warming on the tongue, sweet, malty but not too heavy.   A little more fusels show up as it warms, but it isnít as hot as I thought it would be.   Letís just say its very warming.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   I thought Gordon was their IIPA, for which I prefer.   Decent beer as is, but very warming.   Its a sipper without being cloying.   Oh, and its not over the top with hoppy bitterness, which I like.   Good.

Can shared with Steebo777. Hazy orange-gold pour with a loose white head. Massively dank aroma with notes of bubblegum, melon and citrus. The flavor is cantaloupe, honey, grapefruit and some floral pine on the finish. Creamy medium body with soft carbonation.

Amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus fruits, and some oniony notes. Taste of tropical fruits, citrus, pine, and more garlic/onion, with some alcohol as well.

12zo can. slightly hazy, golden with a thin head and some lacing. While it is bitter enough for my taste, It lacks complexity.
