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.

The aroma is very hoppy with citrus and pine. It also has caramel malt, yeast, and bread. The appearance is golden with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a meaty finish. The palate is almost thick. Overall this is a beer that defines the style, nice.

Capa (2354) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Powerful bitterness in this lemon and pine filled brew. Lots of hops up front in the aroma and flavor with just a little malt to beef it up. The bitterness lasted through the next IPA I had, which it killed pretty easily. Would definitely pick this up again.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2010 can. I almost didnít buy these because tehy are so expensive. $14.50 for a four-pack! Ridiculous. Pours a clear golden with a fluffy, off-white head. Nose is of pine and grass. Taste is the same pine and grass. Mouthfeel is creamy, but not bitter enough.

12oz can. Pours hazy gold with deep gold and orange highlights and thin white head that drops into a thin, pocked disc. The aroma is deep, hoppy, and funky - pine resin and citrus with hints of tropical fruit and an odd "cattiness" that reminisces of garlic and runny cheese - which is slightly off-putting for a beer. The aroma also offers sticky sweetness, almost like honey. The flavor starts resiny with continuing hints of garlic mixed with tropical fruit and cakey sweet malts. Funkiness abounds - mostly from very intense and unique hop characteristics. Iíve read that summit hops have more of a citrus character like centennial and ahtanum, but this has lots of tropical fruit like columbus/tomahawk/zeus and strong pine and funk like simcoe... The funkiness fades quickly across the tongue to a point where it is pleasant and adding complexity to the resiny bitterness (vs. garlic or stinky cheese). The beer remains funky and very hoppy on the back of the palate and has a crisp and dry finish. The aftertaste is hoppy with a surprisingly strong bready malt character. The mouthfeel is crisp and full-bodied with a very refreshing texture from a perfect level of carbonation. Overall, this beer is actually very good. The wierd off-putting aromas arenít really so striking (but once your brain realizes what it thinks it smells, it gets a little distracting). Overall, it is a complex and fairly drinkable big-ass IIPA. I like it a lot, but I do wish the aroma were a little less "catty".

RSRIZZO (1902) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2010
12oz can poured into a Snifter at 49į. Color is a deep clear gold with light carbonation and nice head that falls to a thin tight ring. Aroma is a heavy hop scent of straw and grass. It starts with a medium body that goes down a little sharp. Flavor is a bit rough, the hop come across with a harsh raw hay and grass taste then a little gain shows with a hint of citrus. After taste is a nice dry bitterness. Overall I donít like and was expecting a lot more from this brewery.

StoutFest (77) - Stoutville, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Pours a golden cloudy foggy color. Aromas of grassy, weedy, danky hops. Taste is sweet then hoppy spicy with weedy grassy notes. Full bodied DIPA. Drinkable. ABV well hidden. Nice and malty. Complex for just one hop variety used.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2010
$15.49/4 pack. Central Market. San Antonio, TX. First off HOP BOMB.A transparent orange beer with a good head that fades in a couple minutes. The aroma was a hop bomb and I love it. Very nice with a ton of citrusy hops, very grassy, danky, and spicy. The taste is sweet at first with a big grassy taste, citrus, and then very oddly meat. Yes thatís right meat. Why does this beer have a meat taste, well it is a big beer I guess that explains it. It finishes with a punch of bitterness and is so low carbonated I think you could say it is almost flat. Itís like throwing a beer drinker in a boxing ring with a bunch of hop cones punching you repeatedly.

tgncc (3025) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Wierd beer. The aroma is hops, sweatsock, musty, rotting wood, earthy. Must have been extensively dry hopped with a wierd hop. The flavor is odd, too. Solvent, furniture polish, leafy, earthy, caramel. What the hell did they dry hop this with? The appearance is yellow/gold, slightly orange, white head. The body is thick, the mouthfeel a little oily. The finish is again the wierd earthy, musty taste. This probably was a decent, middle of the road IIPA, and they tanked it with something. Still, I could drink this again if offered. But I wouldnít pay the $4 I paid for this can.
