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.

blipp (8275) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Resinous piney hoppy aroma with some earthy notes. The flavor is piney and earthy with some malty sweetness. A bit over the top, good but not great.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Tap @ Oskar Blues, Lyons. Slightly hazy golden/amber with a creamy head. Huge hop aroma of pine citrus and lots of floral notes with some malty scents. The bitterness hits you right away and lingers throughout but the sweetness from the malt keeps the bitterness from being too abrasive. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry finish. Light alcohol taste. This one is good but a palate wrecker and it would be hard to drink more than one.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - JUN 1, 2010
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.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2010
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.

Beer5000 (5953) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2010
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.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - MAY 31, 2010
orange clear pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is earthy, resinous, herbal, straight up smells like skunky weed, bark, lightly toffee malt. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Flavor is dense nug, , a bit piney, herbal, sweet otfee malt, bitter pot like hoppiness. Unique, odd, and really great.

Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2010
12 oz can. Wow! I thought I would never say this but..... This stuff is just as good as Captain Lawrence Double IPA! Sorry Scott. Bold refreshing fuity strong hopps delicious! 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!

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2010
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.

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.
